Hopf Super Classic Cedar Top, 1992

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Here is a Dieter Hopf Super Classic model from 1992, with Red Cedar top and spectacular Rosewood for the sides and back. There is some uncertainty as to the precise Rosewood used here – Dieter Hopf, the builder, suggests it is either Santos or Jacaranda (which is not to be confused with Brazilian Rosewood).   The modern Super Classic uses Indian Rosewood.  

Dieter Hopf has been building guitars for around 60 years, following a three-century family tradition. Working in the town of Taunusstein, his handcrafted guitars are very well respected.

This Hopf Super Classic is in overall good condition though it has had some repairs over the years, with cleats being applied to top cracks and a back crack having been sealed. The construction is in the Spanish style, with the sides integrated into the neck block. The top is Red Cedar, the sides, back, headplate and bridge are of Rosewood, likely Santos or Jacaranda – the body blocks and neck Mahogany and the fingerboard Ebony. The solid linings may be pearwood or similar.

A small item of interest is that the label describes the location of Hopf’s shop as in Taunusstein, West Germany, and during 1992. German re-unification went into effect on October 3, 1990, so it would appear that Hopf had left-over labels!

Models like this Hopf Super Classic are known for their strong, distinct and clear voices. This excellent example is no exception.

A hard shell case is included.
