Kapa Continental 12-String in Orange COunty CA for $550 - Sonic Youth!

Kapa made two diffferent 12 string models, the Continental and the Minstrel. The Minstrel looks like the Vox Phantom and Lee from Sonic Youth played both a Blue Minstrel and a Red Continental onstage during the 1980's. The Continental was the more popular guitar and the GREEN is the coolest (and most rare) of the colors. There is no pic here but the green is a sort of aqua-turqoise - very nice - however as all Kapa collectors know the paint finishes on these are extremely thin and usually always chipped and badly worn. But you never know with a 12 string because it may have gotten very little play. Kapa guitars were assembled in Silver Springs Maryland from Hofner parts that were imported from Europe. Nice thin necks good for small hands.

I'm selling a Kapa Continental 12 String, it was made in the U.S. Original pickups have a real cool 1960s tone. A rare find, especially in green. They were made until 1970, when Kapa went out of business. These are amazing vintage guitars with one of the best neck designs ever produced, thin and extremely fast with slab rosewood fret boards and M.O.P. dot fret markers. Kapa guitars offer the player and collector the unique opportunity to own an excellent sounding and playing vintage guitar for far less than comparable instruments from Fender and others. It has a zero fret as well. I'm asking $550 OBO

If you're interested, e-mail me back.

Thanks for looking!
