You recall rightly. I have an old '39 Epiphone Emperor (no pickups, no cutaway) that was the preferred cannon for big band/swing music rhythm sections, even over Gibson's Super 400. 18.5" lower bout. BIG muthachomper.

But we're talkin' Gibson "price point marketing" and Chinese/Indonesian construction these days. Gibson corporate culture *hates* epiphone. No matter how much money the brand may make them.
