Solid Sitka Spruce Top, Solid African Mahogany Back & Sides...
The Grandest of Grand Auditorium models, the Kepma Elite Series GA1-130 is a solid performance guitar… and then some.
The GA1-130 is an all-solid construction cutaway guitar that features a AAA+ 150-year old solid Alaskan spruce top and solid African mahogany back & sides. The all-solid construction projects the guitar’s unbelievably balanced warm and rich sound in a way that simply can’t be done with other solid instruments. There’s a mojo in the harmony of construction that truly provides that “synergistic” experience that will delight even the most critical of players.
