1965 Kapa Continental solidbody from one of America's greatest forgotten guitar makers

guitarz.blogspot.com:
Maryland's Kapa guitars were active from 1962-1970 but are largely forgotten today, which is a shame because they would appear to be good solid reliable instruments. Certainly from the reports I've heard, they sound really good too.

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.
