D2-120 Models

 
 
 

Solid Sitka Spruce Top, Indian Rosewood Back & Sides...

 
 

Once you put a Kepma D2-120 in your hands, you won't want to put it down. The D2-120 Models are the backbone of the Kepma Guitars Elite series. Every guitar is precision manufactured to tolerances within 1/1000"... Every guitar's neck is Plek™ finished to perfection, hand inspected and then vibration "aged" for over 300 hours to ensure that it sounds and plays the best.

Sporting 150-year old North American AAA Sitka Spruce tops that have been custom tapered and individually hand "tap tuned" to provide the perfect frequency response and tonal balance, coupled with a precision-formed Indian Rosewood back and sides that adds in that sparkle top end and clarity sought after by the worlds most demanding players. The D2-120 gives you a very balanced rich warmth, sparkle and punch with an insane amount of projection and dynamic loudness that responds to your attack. Whether playing emotive soft passages or full on acoustic aggressive mayhem, the Kepma D2-120 delivers. 

Watch the "how they're made" video to see just what goes into making a Kepma Elite Guitar. You'll be blown away with the quality and precision.
