Since the turn of the 20th century, Epiphone guitars have been part of the American musical landscape. A popular and successful brand in their own right, Epiphone was purchased by Gibson in 1957 and in recent years has become the lower-cost option to USA-made Gibsons. Epiphone offers popular models like the Les Paul and Explorer, mirroring their Gibson big brothers, and also some very cool exclusive Epis like the John Lennon 1965 Casino and the 1962 Wilshire Reissue. The Music Zoo is proud to be an online dealer of Epiphone instruments. We will ship Epiphone products within the US only.
