|Epiphone||Epiphone Emperor Regent||$0.00|
For over 80 years, Epiphone archtops have been the first-call for musicians looking for timeless sound and classic style in one guitar. During swing's golden age in the 1930s, New York City was the music capitol of the world and it was also the capitol of the archtop guitar world, too. Artisan luthiers and old world craftsmen were plentiful and many instruments from that era are now serious collector's items, including classic Epiphone designs like the Emperor Regent, De Luxe, and Olympia. But while most New York City’s archtop builders retired from the business or ran for cover when rock and roll hit, Epiphone never stopped refining the classic designs that made Epi Stathopoulo the king of archtop manufacturers. Epi was determined to make distinguished and great sounding archtops with quality materials that were affordable to working musicians. He insisted that a great guitar belonged on stage, not on a wall in a glass case. So, Epi’s Epiphone showroom on West 14th Street in Lower Manhattan put the leading guitarists of the day like Les Paul and George Van Eps in the shop window to show the world that an Epiphone was an affordable work of art.
Epiphone's timeless Emperor Regent still sets the standard for jumbo jazz boxes and is still one of the largest, measuring 17" across the lower bout for unmatched full-range, big jazz tone.
Like its famous sister the Epiphone Broadway, the Emperor Regent is a direct descendent from Epiphone’s early archtop days and the "war" between then-fierce-rival Gibson and the Stathopoulo brothers.

|Epiphone||Epiiphone Riveria P93 LTD w/Bigsby||$0.00|
The Epiphone Riviera Custom P93 is modeled after one of Epiphone’s most enduring classics, the Riviera. First introduced in the early ‘60s, the Epiphone Riviera’s semi-hollow design has been a favorite of players from all genres and generations including blues great Otis Rush, Lou Reed of the Velvet Underground, and The Strokes’ Nick Valensi, who have all found that the Riviera’s legendary ES-body shape could produce great tones with any pickup variation. Over the years, the Riviera has been seen with humbuckers, mini-humbuckers, and P-90s. But now the Custom P-93 has the rare distinction of giving players a new sound and a new distinctive look.
The Riviera Custom P-93 uses 3 Epiphone “Dogear” Alnico™-V P-90 pickups for a punch that leaves all other three-single coil pickup guitars in the dust. And when matched with the bell-like tones of the ES-style body, a Bigsby® B70 tremelo, plus a stunning Metallic Gold finish with nickel hardware or a Wine Red finish with gold hardware, the Riviera Custom P93 truly becomes of our era’s great instruments.

Epiphone has made a name for itself by producing some of the greatest and most innovative musical instruments for over 120 years. While models such as Masterbilts, Broadways, Wilshires, Coronets, Emperors and Texans are some of Epiphone's most memorable models, the Casino is arguably our most famous due to its close association with The Beatles.
The Epiphone Casino still has the same classic look, sound, and features that have made it the go-to guitar for two generations of artists including Paul McCartney, Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher, Keith Richards and Gary Clark, Jr. The Casino Story For the Epiphone Company of 1961, the Casino was a small breakthrough. After the merger with Gibson in 1957, Epiphone moved away from making large archtops. A new era of music had arrived. The introduction of the Casino was a modern design that announced that Epiphone’s unique history would continue separate from Gibson’s. Though from a distance the Casino had the look of an ES-335, the Casino was a true hollowbody giving players a clear, ringing tone that could be pushed into overdrive when needed.
It was an ideal guitar for stage and studio and can be heard on many landmark recordings including The Beatles’ Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds.
Maybe it’s purely coincidental that at the same time that the Casino was in its planning stages at Epiphone headquarters in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the Beatles were starting their historic run at the Hamburg Star Club. By 1964, the Beatles were stars and when Paul McCartney went shopping for a new guitar that could feed back, he reached for a Casino. John Lennon and George Harrison soon bought their own and used their Casinos on stage and at Abbey Road throughout the band’s career. Carl Wilson of the Beach Boys, Paul Weller of the Jam, and Noel Gallagher of Oasis are just a few of the players who have made great records with Casinos.|
