The Kopp K-200 was born out of a guitar that started life as one of the most dressed up and tonally distinctive jumbo’s in the world. So many great artists played and recorded with this model so I thought long and hard about where I wanted to try to take it.
First, I wanted to give it some more tonal balance, then some more projection, depth and playability, and finally try to give it more drive in the voicing. Last but not least dress it up in a fantastic sunburst.
I think we have achieved a huge jump in tone with the Kopp K-200. It handles all kinds of tuning, as well as finger style and or a pick very well.
17” Wide Jumbo
26” Scale Length With Block Fret Board Inlay
14 Fret Neck Joint
Sitka Spruce Top With Top Burst
Curly Maple Back And Sides (Other Species Available)
Relic Waverly Tuners
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!
