Epiphone has produced quality guitars way before rock-n-roll was invented. They stated building instruments in 1873 in Greece. Manufacture made between 1957 and 1969 were made in the Gibson factory at 225 Parsons Street and on Elenor Street. In the early 1970's Epiphone began to manufacture instruments at the Matsumoku plant in Japan. Production and distribution were being managed by Aria in cooperation with Gibson. From the 1980s, Epiphones were manufactured mainly in Korea but also in Japan by contractors licensed by Gibson. One of these contractors was Samick, which also built instruments under license for other brands, and in its own name. The brand was primarily used to issue less expensive versions of classic Gibson models. In 2002, Gibson opened a factory in Qingdao, China, which manufactures Epiphone guitars. With few exceptions, Epiphones are now built only in the Qingdao factory.
Most Epi's we have handled were of very good quality. Can you tell the difference between a Gibson and a Epi by ear? Maybe not. Can we tell the difference by feel/play? Close call but you take the test. With this in mind we try and buy all the Epi's that are in excellent condition. Yes, lightly use but don't show it. Make sure to check our inventory regularly to see what new stock we added today. Also you can call us at 201-945-5577 and find out what we have not listed yet.
