- acoustic guitars
Kevin Kopp started out doing guitar repairs in Washington, DC in 1990. In 1992 he moved to Bozeman, Montana to work for Gibson. Soon he was working in the Custom Shop, alongside luthiers such as John Walker, and master luthier Ren Ferguson. Together, they created many one-of-a-kind, customized high end Gibson guitars. After 10 years at the Custom Shop, Kevin left to start his own business by opening a repair shop in his home. He became an authorized repairman for all of the major brands, and his business evolved into repairs & restoration of high end vintage instruments. Kevin used this experience of vintage instruments and construction techniques as the basis for his own range of Kopp acoustic guitars.
