Local wood and Linen fibre
The Ouessant (Wesson) guitar was created in 2005 as a unique model, a 16" jumbo guitar.
Originally built with a selection of european "local woods", as maple, sorbus, walnut, ash, for the body, we have developed over the last 4 years, a tree-friendly composite made of linen fibre.
We named this composite K.L.A.S, for Kopo Linen Acoustic Solution !
