Just a quick first impression of the Supro Belmont Vibrato. The Supro guitars sold by Alto Music come extremely well packed and can easily survive rugged handling by the shippers. They are basically triple boxed including the hard shell case. The outer box is 51” x 20” x 9” and the grade of cardboard used is heavy duty. I really like the quality of the Supro cases. The guitars fit snugly and feel more substantial than they look. This particular Belmont weighs in at 7 pounds 10 ounces (7 pounds and 5 ounces with the vibrato cover removed) As nice as some of the high quality photos that have been posted of the Poppy Red Belmont, the finish is even better in person. The shade of red is simply gorgeous. Although not exactly Fiesta Red, it’s a bit closer to Fiesta than what I was getting from the online photos. Just like the Black Holiday, the build quality of the Belmont is excellent. Because the Belmont has no neck binding, I expected the neck to come across visually as less refined but the edge of the rosewood fretboard has a gloss finish and it looks very nice and just like the Black Holiday, the playability is stellar. Upon arrival, there was a bit of fret sprout but after just 15 hours in a humidity controlled environment, the sprout has receded and the fret edges feel very nice now. Humidity control is so important to guitars, even electrics and this was a convincing example. The stock factory strings are pretty knackered out of the gate and the fret surfaces need a couple of passes of the Dunlop 8000 polishing cloth and the rosewood fretboad also needs a little Lemon Oil when it’s restrung today. This guitar needed a bit of bridge and truss adjustment and after the restring it will need a few days of acclimating before the setup is completely dialed in. Just like the pair of of Vista-Tone pickups in the Black Holiday, I find the single VistaTone pickup in the Belmont to be magic. The DCR reading for this pickup is 9.18K. I’m quite certain that these pickups are a significant factor in why I like these Americana Series Supros so much. My only complaint at the moment is that I didn't grab a White Holiday when they were on sale. That’s it for now. Time to go to work. Here are a few pics.
