hi i am just starting to learn guitar and i got a Kapok Brand guitar and i cant get any info on the net so if any1 have seen it plz give me any websites.
Not much out there, but it looks like they were cheap, Chinese guitars imported into the US a coupla decades back.
Ive never heard the name, it may be a generic guitar from China badged up when they leave customs.
A lot of stores in the UK used to import brandless guitars from Korea and China and put a name on the headstock, thats not to say they are bad guitars, some are very good quality.
Isn't kapok a type of tree? The seed pods (I would guess) were used for flotation in life jackets.
But hey, when you run out of good names, anything will do. I'm waiting for a "Li" or "Lee" guitar out of China. That should make a good portion of the guitar-playing population happy, because then they could have a guitar with their own name on it! (Li is the most common surname in the world, since so many Chinese have that name.)
The only thing better would be a heavy metal guitar called the "Muhammed." That's the most common first name in the world. And we all know every mullah wants to shred with a guitar with his own name emblazoned on it!
Hi!!!Me new in this forum.I also have a kapok brand guitar, dude itzz cheap, but not so bad either.
Welcome aboard Rockkker, hope you enjoy your stay.. :lol:
Just received a Kapok MG102 from my Grand Fathers deceased estate.
It was purchased in the 1930's, and used regularly since.
Produces warm tones, with excellent range and depth.
Driven hard, it makes for great volume.
I have an MG101 does anyone know what it might be worth? It has "Made in the Peoples Republic of China" on the inside
