Watkins Rapier Deluxe

Watkins Rapier Deluxe. The first Watkins guitars with US style Supro style body and 3 a side headstock, the Rapier Deluxe, were sold in the summer of 1959 (not as stated elsewhere in either 1957/8!) about 6 weeks after the launch of the Dallas Tuxedo. This early second generation example with a Fender style headstock and a serial no. of 80 dates from probably 1960.
