FOR SALE: 2009 Dan Koentopp Chicagoan

Built in the Spring of 2009 at Dan Koentopp's new workshop, this blonde 17" archtop redefines balance. Created from highly figured maple and tight-grained spruce for a light and responsive archtop guitar with sound and playability comparing to instruments at twice the price. This guitar has beautiful acoustic qualities with loud, rich basses, a full-bodied midrange, and a very clear treble range.  The added Kent Armstrong floating pickup (not pictured below) makes this guitar an efficient and unique instrument for any professional musician.
