Very cool and rare Maryland-made vintage Kapa Cobra.

This is an unusual bit of guitar guitar history. These were made in Maryland with pick up(s) made by Hofner in West Germany.

These were carried by Veneman's Music in the DC Metro area back in the day.

Has what looks to me like a brazilian rosewood finger board.

This guitar plays well and sounds great except the tone pot could use a good cleaning.

Has the original paste-board case.

The pickguard has shrunk (as the old ones do) and popped around the screws (see photos).

More specs to follow.

In the meantime, please ask questions.
