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.
