Fred Kopo Guitars Molène L1 12 strings : Inspiration and history

The eco-composite body in particular, molded shell in flax fiber and “green-epoxy” resin, whose very rounded shape of the bottom and contours provides both great ergonomic comfort, and a very interesting acoustic reproduction.

 

The linen fabric is transformed in Normandy, produced locally near the Lineo company, which is extremely satisfactory in terms of ecological impact.

 

The density, the weight of the shell that we laminate, is established in order to get as close as possible to the mechanical behavior of the wood, but by providing more resistance to shocks as well as to variations in temperature and hygrometry.

 

 

For this 12 string, I chose a red cedar “double skin” table with a honeycomb core, pre-constrained spider barrage.

 

 

We invite you to read the article published in Guitarist Mag in March 2020 (in French) which is a special issue because of its ecological theme. In this article Fred Kopo talks about the different techniques he uses. And you will be able to see a picture of this Molène L1 12 strings. You can find this article in the blog of Kopo Guitars: https://www.kopo.fr/fr-actualites

A few words from the luthier Fred Kopo about the model:

Molène is my new model of acoustic guitar strings steel.

The principle is for me to propose a model of traditional appearance, which brings together the evolutions and innovations that I developed on my model Ouessant for several years.
