1966 Kapa Minsrel - America's take on the Vox Teardrop
We've looked at several Kapa guitars before, and this particular Vox-like Kapa Minstrel from 1966 is attracting some furious bidding on eBay with just under nine hours left before the close of the auction at the time of writing. Despite the "Made in USA" legend on the headstock, Kapa only built the bodies and asembled the guitars in Hyattsville, Maryland. Necks and hardware came courtesy of Germany's Höfner, or on later examples the hardware was imported from Japan.
