Epiphone Celebrates 140th Anniversary During Summer NAMM Conference

Epiphone Celebrates 140th Anniversary During Summer NAMM Conference -

Epiphone, as part of its ongoing 140th Anniversary celebration, announced today it will host a celebratory "Open House" party on 13/713 (12:00 p.m - 6:00 p.m) at its new state-of-the art headquarters in Nashville, TN. The special event will take place on the final day of the Summer NAMM Conference (July 11-13, 2013) and is co-sponsored by NewBay Media's Music Group brands, including Guitar Player, Guitar World, Guitar Aficionado, and Bass Player, plus Shadow Electronics.

The Epiphone "Open House" will provide visiting artists, retailers and all registered Epiphone forum members a chance to tour the new Epiphone facility and go behind the scenes with the Nashville staff, including President Jim Rosenberg.

"We can't wait to show our visitors the new House of Stathopoulo," said Epiphone President Jim Rosenberg.

"Our 'Open House' celebration during NAMM 2013 gives us an opportunity to say 'thank you' to our dealers, artists, and forum members and not only show them our new headquarters but also talk about our favorite subject: Epiphone instruments-past, present, and future. Epiphone has a long tradition of opening its doors to friends and family going back to our early days in Manhattan with our founder, Epi Stathopoulo."

Among the planned events for the "Open House" are a clinic with Jeff Waters, guitarist and founder of the legendary band, Annihilator; a Q&A with instrument historian and author Walter Carter on his new release, The Epiphone Guitar Book: A Complete History of Epiphone Guitars; a demonstration of select Epiphone instruments and pickups; training sessions with Dr. Epiphone; and a charity auction of one-of-a-kind Epiphone instruments.

An exhibit showcasing Epiphone's collection of rare vintage banjos, mandolins, and archtops dating back to the Stathopoulo family's earliest instruments will also be on display.
