The Kopp K-185 fits right into the role of a smaller Jumbo. “But don’t be fooled, it sounds huge! With so many distinctive recordings out there with the original, I wanted to create something functional and new tonally. This guitar has some real tricks under the hood. It not only has the depth and punch, it has all the mids and trebles that make this a real chameleon, and a standout in the Kopp Guitars line.

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!
