Watkins Rapier 33 - a classic 1960s vintage British guitar

We've looked at a similar Watkins Rapier 33 before on Guitarz, not to mention an earlier incarnation of the Rapier. However, this fine example of a Watkins Rapier 33 in rare white finish has just turned up on eBay, and its a real beauty in fantastic condition and includes two tone controls, one volume control, individual pickup on/off switches and rhythm/solo switch, plus the original Watkins Hi-Lo tremolo with the original arm and original non-adjustable chrome Watkins bridge. Note also that this Rapier 33 has a bolt-on neck whereas the example we looked at previously appears to have a set neck.

For further info I once again would refer you to the excellent Watkins Guitar World website.

Currently listed on eBay UK with a Buy It Now price of £365.
