As a kid I always believed that Epiphone was one of those cheap poor quality manufacturers.  One day I was dead shocked to see John Lennon playing one.  Later I learned that a lot of the distinctive sound created on many of those old Beatles albums was created with several Epiphone Casninos.   John, Paul and George all owned one. 

I also learned that many of those old Epi's where made in the same plant with the same workers and parts as Gibson guitars.  And so my respect for Epiphone grew.

Currently I own an Epiphone EB-0 bass.  This is a very cheap bass that I bought for my daughter.

I also have a Chinese made Epiphone Mandolin.  This is my first as so far only mandolin.

On my wish list is, of course, a Epiphone Casino, hopefully with a Bigsby.

Some notable Epiphone basses are:

Epiphone EB-3  This bass is quite a bit nicer than the EB-0 with 2 pickups a full 34" scale and the three position tone selector switch similar to the one on the original Gibson EB-3

Epiphone Viola

Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-V

1965 Epiphone Newport Olivia's Vintage
