The Supro Conquistador guitar is a future-retro fantasy instrument designed in conjunction with Nashville-based guitarist, Ford Thurston. The concept for this guitar originated with the idea of taking a traditional Supro, double-cut body shape and proportionally increasing the body dimensions to match Ted McCarty’s ground-breaking, semi-hollow 335 design.

 The Conquistador’s mahogany body features a single, stylized “f-hole” on the upper bout and a gentle bevel along the outer edge for player comfort. A 3-piece bound mahogany neck with 24.75” scale, 12” radius and smooth satin finish is topped off with an elegant, black “stinger” on the back of an enlarged headstock with 3-per-side Kluson style tuners. The Conquistador is also equipped with a genuine Bigsby B7 vibrato system and nylon saddle bridge.
