Currently shown is a Beautiful Mid 1960's KAPA Challenger (Hofner Howler) with a refinished Burgundy body, and Red/Swirl Pickguard. 

Built in Maryland in the 1960s, with necks, pickups and hardware imported from Hofner in Germany, this boutique brand is in our view a great value -- quality and playability well above the crowd. And given their scarcity, they may be worth more down the road.


This Challenger model was the first solid body Kapa offered from the early 60s to 1966 when it was replaced with the Continental model. The Challenger is something of a cross between a Strat and a Mosrite, with a little Jaguar or Jazzmaster flavor in the mix.

All original, except refin on body. Neck and frets are in fine shape, Hofner "staple" pickups are meaty and versatile. Adjustable bridge (which I think is made of nickel) is stamped Germany.

This guitar sounds AMAZING! Please feel free to give us a shout if you would like more photos or information. Royal Pawn of Crystal City (571)483-0041 507 23rd St S Arlington VA 22202
