Founded in 1873 by Anastasios Stathopoulos based in Nashville, Tennessee; The Epiphone Company was Gibson's main rival in the electric guitar archtop market, including their professional archtops such as the Empower, Deluxe, Broadway, and Triumph. In the 1970s, Epiphone began to produce instruments from their plant in Matsumoku, Japan. At this point, Epiphone had stopped the production of their traditional designs in favour of less expensive guitars, of which many used a less traditional bolt-on neck style and unspecified wood types.
