Fred Kopo, luthier

Since 1988, my workshop has seen the birth of several hundred musical instruments.

Over the years, my passion has focused on steel or nylon string acoustic guitars, while remaining open to the creation of all types of stringed instruments, whether basses or electric guitars, violins or electro basses for example!

What drives me today is the quest for simple, refined and effective designs, favoring the use of ecological materials in order to keep the use of our precious wood for its most relevant use.

Also I am committed to using local woods as much as possible, and I have developed an innovative concept, a bio-composite guitar body called "Klas".

I invite you to explore my universe through this site, where you will discover my creations and my commitment to the environment.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss your musical project. I look forward to supporting you in the realization

of the instrument of your dreams!

The spirit of our acoustic guitars

Acoustics and research to optimize sound qualities are the basis of design and innovations.

From the headstock to the bridge, including the vents, the principle of interlocking the neck, are all components designed according to each other. The optimal goal sought is for the finished instrument to appear obvious, almost classic, despite a resolutely contemporary line.

The artists

Ouessant baritone 7 strings

Fan fretting

I have been going to meet Matthieu for several years to have him try a guitar, when the opportunity presents itself, and I have the pleasure of having convinced him, in 2016, for a 7-string Ouessant that you will see soon on stage, I hope!!
