Epiphone Celebrates 140th Anniversary During Summer NAMM
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.
