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

(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) 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 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, small dings and some wipe marks on the pick guard, a bit of finish sink at the center seam and some light fret wear.  Includes hard case.
