gibson bought epiphone back in the 80's because of the fact that gibson was getting smashed in the hollow body guitar market aka the casino. so now epiphone makes high quality les pauls for a fraction of the price.

Its was in the 50's, but yea epiphone makes pretty good gibson copies, just different wood and not as good pickups mainly.
