More about Epiphone


Epiphone's rich history began in the late 19th century and spans across three generations and the Atlantic Ocean. Established by Anastasio Stathopoulo, a skilled luthier who learned about tonewoods from his father, the company became a leader in the musical instrument industry. Epiphone has consistently delivered high-quality products that have played a significant role in shaping the music world.

Throughout its storied past, Epiphone has been at the forefront of musical innovation, from its early days as a manufacturer of mandolins and banjos to its prominence in the development of electric guitars. The brand gained an edge in the 1930s by introducing the Masterbilt line of archtop guitars, which successfully competed with rival Gibson and won the admiration of premier musicians. Epiphone has also been a pioneer in electric guitar technology, developing the first pickup with adjustable pole pieces and providing Les Paul with the components to create his famous "Log" prototype.
