With a long and rich history, Epiphone is one of America’s oldest and most revered instrument makers. Over 125 years ago, Anastasios Stathopoulo opened a small instrument factory in Smyrna, Turkey. Years later, his son Epaminondas, or Epi for short, took over the family business which had relocated to America. He renamed the company Epiphone, a combination of his name and ‘phone’, the Greek word for sound. For a while, the company produced exclusively banjos, which were the most popular instrument in America at the time. Then in 1928, Epiphone introduced its first line of acoustic guitars. Today, Epiphone offers affordable guitars and basses for every player in every genre, regardless of budget or ability.
