Kepma Research and Development

Kepma's founders' engineering backgrounds coupled with a love and passion for the guitar give guitar making a whole new twist. From studying wood microscopically down to the alignment of the medullary rays to maintaining the proper moisture content for optimum tonal response, Kepma craftsmen and technicians mix a rare combination of science and art. There is a universal agreement on what typically "sounds good" and our R&D department's goal is to be able to replicate it over and over in every guitar we make.
