Deep In The Heart Of Epiphone... A Room That Few People Have Ever Been In

Deep in the heart of Epiphone Headquarters is a room that few people have ever been in. In fact... some of our employees don't even know where this room is. That's because the door is kept under lock and key and is rarely opened. It's a vault of sorts... and houses some instruments that could never be replaced... including the Epiphone Vintage Collection acquired from the Jim Fisch estate in 2007. Recently we have begun sharing these instruments with our fans and customers via the web and will continue to add more instruments to the dedicated micro-site as time allows. If you haven't checked it out yet... do yourself a favor and witness some of Epiphone's rich history by visiting The Vintage Collection micro-site.
