The Supro Arlington was right at the top of Supro's electric guitar range, with deluxe inlays and Bigsby vibrato. Design-wise, it was probably influenced by the Fender Jaguar, but unlike any Fender, it had a fibreglass body. There were two finishes for the Supro Arlington: sunburst, S665; and white, S665.
The Supro Arlington S665 (sunburst) takes pride of place on the front cover of the 1966 Supro catalog
, and is described as follows:
