I just bought a Kapa Series 500, which is a fully hollow thinline from the 60’s. It was cheap, and I bought it primarily as a piece of local Washington area history. The body and bolt on neck are Japanese made, and all the hardware and electronics were apparently made by Hofner. Then they were assembled in PG County, Md, and sold by Veneman’s Music. I think it sounds excellent, as does my family, so it was a lucky online impulse purchase. It has these funky looking Hofner Staple humbucking pickups, and I wonder what you all can tell me about them. When I looked online, nobody seems to list much info, aside from when they were made. To my ears, the guitar sounds Gibson-esque, but this is my first full hollow body, and I don’t have any really meaningful experience with accurate PAF style repro’s. So I don’t really have any point of comparison, aside from sounds in my head. I haven’t taken any measurements, but they are definitely narrower than the standard humbucker. Anyway, if anybody knows what’s inside these things, or can compare them to any other pickups in specs or tonality, I’d be very interested and appreciative. I’m not qualified to start dissecting these things. My old multimeter is dead, but I’m going to order a new one and get a DCR measurement.
