Have a look at some vintage Epiphone guitar catalogues But perhaps the best known guitars built by Epiphone were those manufactured at the Gibson Kalamazoo plant – the CMI period. CMI bought out a struggling Epiphone in , buying tooling, parts, and even unfinished instruments. Production of hollow-bodied jazz guitars and acoustic upright basses began immediately. But before long Epiphone was producing new lines, unrelated to the output of previous years. Thinline semi acoustics like the Epiphone Casino , Sorrento , Riviera and Sheraton were soon joined by solid bodies like the Epiphone Wilshire , Crestwood and Coronet ; all distributed to dealers that wanted Gibson-quality instruments, but did not qualify to be Gibson stockists themselves.

Gibson ran a whole block in Kalamazoo giving their address as Parsons Street, whilst Epiphone were officially situated on Bush Street; just the other side of the block. The instruments were made side by side, both using the same woods, construction methods, and many of the same components. Unlike today, the s US-built Epiphone line was aimed at exactly the same market as the Gibson equivalent instruments. Epiphone guitars quickly found favour in the mid s music scene; bands like the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Animals and the Kinks all played Epiphones, along with many more.

The Norlin period Norlin period Epiphones were initially made in Japan; they were no longer rebranded Gibson guitars, but a new budget line aimed at younger guitarists. Although some of these guitars are interesting, they are not as widely regarded by musicans or collectors as the CMI-period instruments. Towards the very end of Norlins tenure, a few Epiphone guitars were produced at the Kalamazoo and Nashville plants: Todays Epiphone guitars are typically reissues of the s Gibson and Epiphone instruments made in Kalamazoo – but being made in China and Korea these are typically very much cheaper – though generally good quality instruments.

The device allows musicians to bend the pitch of notes or entire chords with their pick hand for various effects. The Bigsby was the first successful design of what is now called a whammy bar or tremolo arm, although vibrato is the technically correct term for the musical effect it produces. In standard usage, tremolo is a rapid fluctuation of the volume of a note, while vibrato is a fluctuation in pitch.

The Bigsby vibrato unit is installed on the top of the guitar and works in conjunction with a rocker bridge. The arm of the Bigsby is spring loaded and attached to a pivoting metal bar, around which the strings of the guitar are installed. In the neutral or unused position, the pressure of the spring counterbalances the pull of the strings, resulting in constant pitch when the strings are played.

In the s, Gibson also produced the Tune-o-matic bridge system and its version of the humbucking pickup, the PAF “Patent Applied For” , first released in and still sought after for its sound.

The Epiphone Interview On January 14, , during the era of popular music when the electric guitar had been pushed aside by keyboards and synthesizers, Henry Juszkiewicz and Dave Berryman, two entrepreneurs who had met in graduate school, purchased a struggling guitar company called Gibson. Thrown into the bargain was another guitar company owned by Gibson since Epiphone.

While Juszkiewicz and Berryman went to work putting Gibson back into shape–improving quality, distribution, and dealer relationships–the new owners also began to slowly unravel the long history of Epiphone, the House of Stathopoulo. In the process, they discovered they had a diamond in the rough with a history of producing groundbreaking instruments and a story unlike any other in the history of American instruments. They also discovered that Epiphone’s greatest rival in the guitar business had been Gibson and that Epiphone fans from all generations had a fierce loyalty to the brand despite its long and rocky history.

Originally an independent brand, Epiphone was bought by Gibson Guitar in As opposed to a brand such as Fender, whose guitars are either made in America or Mexico, Epiphone’s guitars can come from a number of different factories in a variety of countries. For this reason, it is not as easy to know where each guitar comes from or when it was made.

Epiphone stamps each guitar with a serial number, however, which when deciphered can tell a guitarist all he needs to know about the guitar. Locate the serial number on the back of the guitar’s headstock the top of the neck where the strings are attached. The serial number will generally be nine to 10 digits long, with the first being a letter.

Identify the first letter in the serial number. This letter represents in which country the guitar comes from, as well as the company who manufactured it. If the guitar was made in Korea, it will either have an “I,” which stands for Saein; a “U,” which stands for Unsung; an “S,” which stands for Samick; or a “P,” which stands for Peerless.

If the guitar was made in Japan, the letters printed to represent it are either a “F” for FujiGen or a “J” or “T,” which stand for Terada. A Japanese-made Epiphone can also have no letter, in which case the serial number would just start with numbers. If the guitar was made in Indonesia, it will have a “SI,” which stands for Samick’s Indoesian factory. Analyze the first two numbers in the serial. These two numbers represent the year the guitar was made.

Trigger News 20 Comments One of the very last true links to the Golden Age of country music has retired to the great honky tonk in the sky. Born on March 10th, into a Pentecostal home, Rhodes often claimed he went to church nine months before he was born. Throughout his career, Rhodes would also play drums, sing, work on guitars, drive busses, act as the accountant, or do whatever else was asked or assigned to him. But it was his guitar playing that would rocket him into country music history, playing jazz-style honky tonk on a big bodied Epiphone guitar.

He was first discovered playing at the Longhorn Ballroom in Dallas. At the time, Rhodes was also playing drums, and playing in a professional fast pitch softball team along with the guitar playing. He also worked on and off for notorious Dallas native Jack Ruby, who owned clubs in the Dallas area. During this time he also became a year mainstay of the Hee-Haw house band. Rhodes eventually left the Opry in to tour behind Porter Wagoner, but continued to play the Opry and other stages around Nashville for many years beyond.

About the weight, I didn’t have the intention to start a discussion. I just mentioned that my Epiphone made in Unsung was havier then others I have seen, but I know that is just one factor on the sound quality “equation” that sometimes is irrelevant. I also know that the “hands” of the guitar player are most important part of the sound, but it’s out of question. I think that the best way of choose a guitar is trying it, feeling it as most people said , but I’m planning to buy on ebay so I won’t be able to touch it.
