Built by National Valco, the Belmont was typically seen as a Supro model but a small number of models were ordered by Sonny Shields Music in St. Louis with Dwight branding. Identical in every way to the Supro models except for the headstock, the Belmont is a solid body bolt-on electric guitar with a single bridge-position humbucker. Controls include master volume, master tone, and a tone bypass switch. This particular example is believed to be a 1960 model. It is in excellent playing condition, with good action and great tone. Part of the original Dwight logo is broken off, but the guitar otherwise shows surprisingly little wear for its age. It includes a hard shell case, but we are not certain if the case is original, though the guitar does fit well and the case looks to be of similar age.
