What We Think

A true Hoss of a guitar right here, folks.  Kevin Kopp cut his teeth working in the Gibson shop and it shows--the warm, dry, fundamental punch of this instrument sound eerily like something that came out of Michigan in the 30s.  And indeed, this model draws its roots from the extra-rare 12 fret J-200s that were made in the early 20th century.  Makes you wonder where they went!  We can see singer/songwriters, fingerstyle wizards, and flatpicking soloists alike all falling head over heels for this powerful bear hug of a guitar.  Rarely do you get the versatile balance and transparency of something like an OM with the volume and presence of a Jumbo--don't miss out on this magical beast while it's here!

Manufacturer's Description from Other

The Kopp Trail Boss is one of my flagship guitars. It has been years in the making. A really fantastic instrument for not only singer/songwriters, but also soloists that need the reach the upper frets, while being able to stand out dynamically.
The 17” body is a full and comfortable (but not overwhelming) jumbo. I tried hard in the design to not sacrifice the esthetic of a full sized Jumbo, while blending the cutaway seamlessly together with the rest of the guitar.
TONE
The Trail Boss has a big and bold tone. It has an overall punchy bottom, warm and balanced trebles and enveloping mids that are all reveled the first time you strum one.
The Trail Boss is extremely warm and focused through the complete tonal spectrum. It is a superior guitar for recording, or live work due to the voicing and construction techniques used, making it as responsive as it can be. Whether you are using a flat pick or fingers, the Trail Boss delivers!
DYNAMICS
In the right hands the Trail Boss can fill up a room, while also projecting it’s signature tone and dynamics. It shines when the player comes down in volume as well, all while still retaining the Boss’s unique voice. The shear headroom this guitar produces allows it to step out front when you need it to, or to fill out your song or accompaniment. It is a really versatile instrument.
