The Kopp K-35 is another incredibly popular guitar with working players and weekend pickers alike.
“I like the expression “dry, explosive and woody” because that how players have articulated how they feel about the K-35”. It’s their way of expressing to me that they are getting a “Vintage” and useable type tone from the guitar.
“People have told me they love the fact that the K-35 does so many things so well, that they can cover a lot of ground with one guitar”!
“If you are doing bluegrass, finger style, rock, jazz or blues you will find this guitar becomes an extension of your playing and delivers tone in spades”. It is an extremely comfortable guitar to play and records remarkably well with a pick or without.
16” Wide Slope Shoulder Dreadnought
24.75” Scale Length
12 or 14 Fret Neck Joint
Red Spruce Top With Top Burst
Mahogany Back And Sides
Inlayed Logo (White Silk Screen Logo available).
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!
