(SOLD) – (NEW) Kevin Kopp sunburst K-35 (Mahogany/Red Spruce) – Just Lovely! – SOLD

(NEW) Here is something quite special! A brand new Kopp K-35 with “burning embers” sunburst, and tone for days!

We are very excited about our new partnership with Montana luthier Kevin Kopp. We’ve admired Kevin’s guitars for quite some time 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 vintage Gibson tone and vibe, while making wonderfully consistent and extremely playable guitars.

This guitar was just shipped to us from Kevin’s shop in Bozeman, MT. It is his K-35 model built with mahogany, Red Spruce top, and Kevin’s gorgeous Hand-rubbed alcohol stained stunning SUNBURST.

It looks and feels just right with 1 and 3/4″ nut width, 2 and 1/4″ saddle spacing, bone nut and saddle, MadRose fretboard and bridge, bone pins, ivoroid binding, and those new “relic” Waverly nickel tuners that add a cool vintage vibe.

The tone is strong, clear, balanced, and sweet. It has a commanding bass but is entirely musical while not the least bit boomy or over-powering. It is take-no-prisoners loud guitar with presence to spare, and abundant projection. It excels at fingertstyle blues and country flat picking and is ideal for someone interested in vocal accompaniment or songwriting. It sounds like the very best vintage J-35 guitars.

The construction is spot on with superb fit and finish, vintage appointments with modern refinement, and killer tone.

We will be getting several more new guitars directly from Kevin. Please watch these pages for the upcoming custom Kopp guitars!
