Dating back to 1873 and once a major rival of Gibson, the Epiphone company and brand were purchased by Gibson's parent company in 1957.
Originally the Epiphone models were made in the same factory as the Gibson guitars, by the same craftspeople using the same materials and often with the same features as Gibson models, but manufacturing of most of the Epiphone instruments was switched to Asia sometime around 1969.
