About EpiphoneEdit

Epiphone is a musical instrument manufacturer founded in 1873 by Anastasios Stathopoulos. Epiphone was bought by Chicago Music Company, which also owned Gibson Guitar Corporation, in 1957. Epiphone was Gibson's main rival in the archtop market. Their professional archtops, including the Emperor, Deluxe, Broadway and Triumph, rivaled those of Gibson. The company's weakness in the aftermath of World War II allowed Gibson to absorb it. 

The name "Epiphone" is a combination of Epaminondas Stathopoulos' nickname "Epi" and "phone" (from Greek phon-, "sound"/"voice"), as well as a play on one meaning of the word "epiphany," a sudden inspiration frequently presenting itself as supernatural in origin.


Epiphone is now a subsidiary of the Gibson Corporation. Because of this subsidiary relationship, many of the instruments are based upon the more expensive Gibson versions, but at a more affordable price point. Epiphone still maintains its own line of archtop guitars as well as some electric guitar and bass models.
