I bought my H16R when visiting London in 1992.
It was just impulsive buy when I noticed that all the prices of "real" vintage guitars were out of reach. This guitar turned out to be very unique. Nice action, unique sound especially through Vox AC30. Because of short scale it's perfect for rhythm strumming. Original finish is a bit faded, but otherwise it's as new including original case.

i just bought this guitar when i was in louisville, ky. agian it seemed liek an implulse buy but it turned out to be a great guitar and the original electronics sound great and the tunning knobs on this guitar are better than my les paul. i would say it is great guitar for a rhythm guitarist or any fan of music

I've got a 68 Bobkat, glad to know it has a name. It's really a pretty good surf guitar. It's also light weight, that's a plus!

These guitars are great guitars for the money. If you are looking for a well made versatile guitar that has serious MOJO these git-er-dun.I can play The Blues for days on mine

This was my first guitar in...'82-ish. Mine was tobacco sunburst, but I painted it red. Actually ruined the finish. Didn't realize they also came in red. Wonder what ever happened to that guitar.

Got one of these cheap at a yard sale, stripped it down and repainted it a bright yellow colour my brother concocted. It has its small playability problems, but I love the sound and it's plenty playable. Love it!
