Hand Made Guitars by Luthier Dan Koentopp

Custom Blueline With a Classic Touch

Completed in May 2012, this guitar was designed around my standard 16″ Blueline model with some unique appointments. It features hand cut “Amati” f-holes and a warm brownish-red french polish. This guitar is a dream to play with a voice that made me jealous to part with it.
