2017 Kevin Kopp D21 Dreadnought, Carpathian Spruce, Madagascar Rosewood - USED - ON HOLD

(USED) To say that we love Kevin Kopp's Gibby-inspired guitars would be the understatement of the decade.  We not only love them, but we own them, we play them every day.  Being a Bozeman dweller, those guitars are just in Kevin's blood.  But should it be any surprise that Kopp can also turn out a world-class dreadnought with a little more of a Nazareth flavor?  

What we have here is a delightful long-scale, square-shoulder dreadnought in the Martin tradition, with the rare and intriguing combination of (lightly bear claw'd) Adirondack or Carpathian spruce on top and cascading Madagascar rosewood for the back and sides.  It's a lovely combo, producing an instrument with plenty of tonal complexity, but also an unmistakable musical voice.  It's got soul, if you know what I mean!  It lives somewhere between singer/songwriter and serious flat picker, with just enough low-end snarl to be a little dangerous!

Cosmetically, it is understated, evoking a no-bone "21" styling where the woods get to be the real star.  It is long scale with a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, 1 3/4" nut and 2 1/4" string spacing at the saddle.  The super-comfortable mahogany neck has a gentle modified "V" neck profile, not too chunky by a long shot.  The nut, saddle and pins are bone.  Waverly tuners. 

In very good condition with a few minor cosmetic imperfections, several small dings and some brush marks on the pick guard, a bit of finish sinkage at the center seam and some light fret wear.  Includes a worn TKL hard case with stained and tarnished hardware.
