Since 1873, Epiphone has made instruments for every style of popular music and in 2013 will celebrate its 140th anniversary. The name Epiphone evokes both history and the spirit of invention. The House of Stathopoulo has played a central role in every great musical era from the mandolin craze of the early 1900s to jazz age guitars of the 1920s; from swing era archtops through post-war pop.
As Epiphone waned and the crisis was already apparent, Les Paul suggested to McCarty that Gibson approach Epiphone. McCarty followed the advice and reached out to Orphie, expressing Gibson's interest in Epiphone's critically acclaimed upright bass division, which Gibson had not produced again after WWII. When Orphie responded in 1957, he offered McCarty the entire Epiphone company, including the remaining inventory from the Philadelphia factory, for just $ 20,000; McCarty accepted on.

We ask that you email an electronic press kit in to the following address for endorsement consideration: email@example.com. Musicianship, an extensive touring regimen, and possible label/management support are indicators for endorsement consideration Epiphone ist eine seit dem Jahr 1928 bestehende US-amerikanische Handelsmarke für Zupfinstrumente.Bis 1957 war Epiphone eine eigenständige Firma, die seit den 1930er-Jahren besonders für ihr Angebot an hochwertigen Archtop-Gitarren bekannt war. Im Jahr 1957 wurde Epiphone dem konkurrierenden Musikinstrumentenbau-Unternehmen Gibson Guitar Corporation angegliedert
Under the ownership of Epaminondas (Epi) Stathopoulo, Epiphone was a leading manufacturer of hollow-body and archtop guitars. Epi Stathopoulos died in 1943. Control of the company went to his brothers, Orphie and Frixo. In 1951, a four-month-long strike forced a relocation of Epiphone from New York to Philadelphia. The company was bought out by their main rival, Gibson in 1957. In 1958, Gibson began to expand upon its Epiphone line of semi-hollow guitars. They reworked Epiphone. Dass Epiphone diese beiden Aufgaben erfolgreich erfüllt, dürfte unstrittig sein. Etliche Gitarristen sind aus dem Einsteiger-Stadium längst heraus und spielen auch nach Jahren noch mit Überzeugung ihre Epiphone. Und damit wird auch deutlich, dass die konkurrente Situation zwischen Gibson und Epiphone nicht vollständig aufgehoben wurde. Also hat Gibson nicht einen bloßen Markennamen. I wish this was a paid endorsement, but I don't think they like me pointing out their marketing department being full of **** with some of their claims. The Graph Tech nut is a solid choice, I'd steer you towards Art of Tone for some of his 525K ±5% CTS pots. A Switchcraft switch is always a solid choice, no love lost there. As for tuners, anything you put on a Special VE is bound to be an. Zu Beginn der 60er Jahre kamen aber auch Epiphone-Gitarren auf den Markt, die sich in etwa im selben Preissegment ansiedelten wie vergleichbare Gibson-Pendants. Die Epiphone Excellente setzte dieser Entwicklung dann die Krone auf und war teurer als jede Flat Top aus dem Hause Gibson. In der Korpusform war diese Square Shouldered Dreadnought offensichtlich von den großen Martin-Modellen inspiriert. Mit ihren Verzierungen, wie dem sehr ausladenden Schlagbrett, wirkte die Epiphone Excellente.

Ursprünglich hatte die Gitarre das vorliegende Sunburst-Finish, 1967 wurde sie im Zuge der Psychedelic-Mode vollkommen ausgeflippt übermalt, ein Jahr später dann komplett von allen Farben befreit, das Ergebnis war das Natural Finish, wie man es z.B. beim Film Let It Be oder später bei Imagine bewundern kann In the late 90's Epiphone did enter into an endorsement deal with the John Hooker estate and a limited number of John Lee Hooker Sheratons were made and marketed as The USA Series but these were actually made in Japan (by Terada) with final assembly taking place in the U.S. While this was to be a limited run of guitars, once the initial run production was attained production continued and.

Based on your set-up and with your Laney Cub and Epiphone, I think you should be able to get pretty close to Green's beautiful tones!

That is a wonderful endorsement. Gives me some faith that I may have made a good choice. I have fairly large hands myself but I am so accustomed to a 1 11/16ths nut that the spacing on 1 3/4 nuts just throws me off a tiny bit on my fingering accuracy.
