Historic Epiphone Century Story
In Epiphone history, the “Century” name goes all the way back to the 1930s big band era, when the “House of Stathopoulo” was making some of the best archtops ever made. And when Epiphone merged with Gibson and moved its productions to Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1957, the Century was reborn as a popular thinline archtop, similar to a Casino or a “335” but with a slightly smaller body and a single P-90 pickup.
