: I bought a Kapa Challenger in 1964 at Veneman's. I still have the guitar and the hardshell case and the original bill of sale. The guitar is excellent and I would never part with it. I used it many years in a band from 1964-1969. The Challenger is the sunburst version with the whammy bar and dual pickups. Your family produced a great guitar. It's too bad it didn't become more popular back then. It was a great value for the money.
This is mark,
O my god your family did produce great guitars.
I am just getting started playing and I have an all original KAPA Continental. If you would like I could send you some pics of it, It's from 1966.
