Although I say they are one of "America's greatest forgotten guitar makers", the Höfner-made necks were imported in from Germany.
To my eyes this Kapa Continental 6-string from 1965, leaning nonchalantly against an unsuspecting Harley Davidson, is quite a desirable instrument and appears to be in excellent condition for its age. The Jazzmaster/jaguar-like tremolo makes me think this guitar would perform surf music quite nicely.
Currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $795.
