SOLD – (NEW) Kevin Kopp K-200 Maple Jumbo – Full Body Sunburst – SOLD

(NEW)

We are very excited about our new partnership with Bozeman, Montana luthier Kevin Kopp.

The Kopp K-200 was born out of a guitar that started life as one of the most dressed up and tonally distinctive jumbo shapes in the world. So many revered artists played and recorded with this model so Kevin thought long and hard about where I wanted to try to take it.

First, he wanted to give it some more tonal balance, then some more projection, depth and playability, and finally try to give it even more drive in the voicing. Last but not least he wanted to give it its due and dress it up in a fantastic full body sunburst.

We think he has achieved a huge jump in tone with the Kopp K-200. It has the traditional thump but it also has an articulation and complexity that makes it stand out, and It handles all kinds of tuning, as well as finger style and or a flat-pick very well.

We’ve admired Kevin’s guitars for many years now – having taken a half dozen or so on trade or consignment – and we can think of no modern builder who more accurately captures the authentic Gibson tone and vibe, while making wonderfully consistent and extremely playable guitars.

The construction is excellent with superb fit and finish, vintage appointments with modern refinement, and killer JUMBO MAPLE tone. It’s like an upright piano, it is.
