The Kopp N.L is my take on a fantastic old guitar that a lot of players liked but wanted more width, depth and dynamics out of a guitar this size.
Ultimately I wanted to unlock all the dry explosive and woody tone I could from this guitar. I worked painstakingly on voicing, bracing and construction, until I got it right. The N.L is a very special model, and one of my most popular. Its deep cavernous and punchy tone is fantastic! It excels at either finger style, or with a pick. The Kopp N.L delivers in spades!

Price includes your choice of regular or thermally cured ( Torrified ) top normally included for this model with the exception of Engleman or euro spruce unless those become available in the future.
It also includes your choice of standard gloss finish, or closet relic finish. I’m not into severely road wearing your instrument, I’d prefer to let you do that your self.
However, I do believe that there are a couple of sonic advantages to the closet relic finish. First it allows me to apply 50% less lacquer, resulting in an incredibly thin overall film thickness.
Secondly, I believe that in “Crazing” the finish, it breaks the surface tension of the film, allowing for a more relaxed, easy and open response for all playing styles. Plus all of the cool kids are doing it!
