If so send me a photo so I can include it in the Rhino drawings. Mine had a great thin neck held on by 3 screws covered by press-in chrome caps. The gut before me had flat wound jazz strings on it which sadly, I never replaced. The action was pretty low, and it sounded better than my band-mates Teisco guitars. It made the lead guitarist pretty pi$$ed when I learned how to play all of his leads better than he was doing, so he quit the band, and we broke up. I ended up buying his Traynor YBA-1 head a few years later. Another, "wish I never got rid of" instance.
I just checked. This one is solid...no weight relief and cover. ONly two machine screws hold the neck on. The neck has tee nuts on the fretboard/neck surface from what I can tell, to accept the threads. A few I had had a tilt adjust under a cover as well.
I had never really ever seen or heard of supro, until I started to stumble across them at the flea market about 15 years ago. My first was a Dual Tone in original case for 75 dollars. Then I started to see them a few more times until ebay started up. I even latched onto a 3 pickup one in black. During my supro fever, I had one of the red mother of toilet seat belmonts... that was a nice one.
Buying and selling got fun when decent stuff was available. Things have pretty much dried up.
I love the looks of this one:
