What We Think

If it's good enough for Leo Kottke, it's good enough for us!  When Kevin Kopp mentioned that this guitar was available, we were excited; when we saw that it was built to the same spec as a 12 string he built for Leo Kottke, we bought it!  We adore everything we've received from Kopp (you ever hear a guitar sound more like a Gibson than a Gibson?) but this unique design makes for a big but articulate 12 string voice with fantastic playability allowing for fingerstyle guys to have fun along with the strummers.  Hats off, Kevin!

Manufacturer's Description from Other

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.

We’re all on a journey of our own and hopefully our paths cross, if only briefly. Kevin’s journey of exploration and constant pursuit of quality and tone continues every day and who knows — maybe your own pursuit of quality and tone has led you here, to this intersection.
