The marketing expert Epi Stathopoulo gave each instrument a proper name instead of a straightforward model number in order to ensure that these high-quality instruments get the image they deserve right from the beginning. Epi invented the name "Masterbilt Series" for this group of guitars in order to attract attention and to set himself apart from his competitors, who were rather focussed on tradition. Full Body The heart of the Epiphone product line is made up of the replicas of the Emperor, Zephyr or Broadway offering the right instruments to suit the needs of any musician ranging from beginner to pro.

The history of Epiphone has also been shaped greatly by the brilliant guitarist Les Paul experimenting in the Epiphone factory to design the first solid body electric guitar in 1941. Today Epiphone stand for both innovative guitar design and for excellent yet affordable replicas of true guitar classics.
