Fred Kopo Guitars Molène Leonard #1 : Unique piece, firstly made with a Klas shell, a cedar top, a linden neck, fingerboard & bridge in red pigment-stained cormier.
Klas is a high performance bio-composite material used mostly in instrument making. Its accoustic qualities are comparable to the best species of wood, such as maple, walnut, ash, mahogany, … however it outperforms wood in terms of stability, due to its composite design, by method of infusion.
K.L.A.S., which stands for Kopo Linen Acoustic Solution (Kopo Lin Acoustique Solution), was designed with eco-responsibility in mind for the preservation of our wood resources. Its main compound is flax fiber, which today offers multiple applications making it an alternative to composite materials such as fiberglass and carbon.
Linen is already emerging as one of the materials of the future, in the sports industry in particular and in design crafts to name a few.
Ever conscious of ecological issues, Kopo sources flax fabric from one of the most renowned French producers, based in Normandy, which collects locally and transforms flax into multiple fabrics for composite uses.
