(SOLD) (USED) Kevin Kopp Nick Lucas, Maple – SOLD

(USED) Just arrived. Taken on trade on a Huss & Dalton Brazilian Rosewood guitar.

This is a stunningly beautiful Nick Lucas model from Kevin Kopp of Bozeman, MT, and to say that we are impressed would be a severe understatement. The instrument has fit and finish rivaling the finest boutique builder, and the tone is PERFECT. Watch this site for more KOPP guitars!

With the full 4 and 3/4″ body depth, this adds a huge element of well….”depth” to the classic L-OO experience. This is a 14 fret maple guitar with 1 and 3/4″ nut width, 2 and 1/4″ saddle spacing, with compensated bone saddle, extensive HIDE GLUE construction, 14″ fretboard radius, Waverly tuners, Hand-rubbed alcohol stained stunning FULL BODY SUNBURST and a very thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish. The tone is PERFECT.
Another interesting construction feature is the use of solid bent linings (think violin/cello) not kerfing.

Kevin’s story:

Moving to Bozeman, Montana in 1992 to work for Gibson, Kevin’s talents quickly moved him into the Custom Shop, where he was able to hone his skills working with luthiers such as John Walker, and master luthier Ren Ferguson. Together, they created many one-of-a-kind, customized high end Gibson guitars, or “Ginches” as they came to be called.

After ten years of working in the Custom Shop, Kevin felt it was time to move on and explore the world of self employment in addition to expanding his repair shop at home and his skills. He became an authorized repairman for all of the “Biggies”, but his business started evolving into repairs & restoration of high end vintage instruments belonging to customers all over the North American continent and Japan.

Seeing dozens of vintage instruments literally from the inside out, Kevin started melding some of his own ideas and experiences with the tried and true construction techniques that he saw in the guitars, banjos and mandolins he was repairing. Starting his own line of high end guitars was the natural outcome, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Players instantly hear the rich tone and response in every one of Kevin’s guitars. Internationally known guitar artist Leo Kottke owns and regularly plays two Kopp guitars.

Can’t say enough about this fine guitar. Love maple? Love great guitars? Got the Blues? Our suggestion for you –  Jump soon, as it will not last!
