What Our Partners Say About Us

As you can imagine, we work with a lot of companies around the globe to obtain the level of precision, quality and integrity of the Kepma brand. In fact, each Kepma Elite Series guitar contains sourced materials from over a dozen countries and are meticulously made on equipment from the world's most advance machinery providers.  Here are few morsels from some of our manufacturing and supply partners...


“Kepma’s use of ABB robots for the painting, sanding and buffing of their guitars is similar to applications ABB robots are used for in the manufacturing of high quality goods from smart phones to luxury watches and some of the world’s top performance automobiles. The precision capabilities ensure the highest consistent quality, reliability in production and safety in the work environment.”
