Epiphone is a United States musical instrument manufacturing company established in 1873. Epiphone and Gibson both are the competitors in the archtop market before 1957. Apart from guitars, Epiphone also manufactured banjos, double basses, and other string instruments. Yet, the company's fault in the aftermath of World War II and the death of Epaminondas Stathopoulos in 1943 let Gibson buy it. Epiphone also makes resonator guitars under the Dobro brand. Epiphone models are of such great quality that sales of those less costly instruments cut into Gibson's sales. Manufacturing and workmanship standards were so great that Gibson hit the model. To help differentiate itself from the parent brand, Epiphone also manages its line of archtop basses and guitars.
