And the gay, singing, nostalgic sounds of the banjo are equally American. Shortly after the Civil War the banjo started its climb to national popularity, and it has enjoyed periodic flurries of attention ever since, including our present Folk revival. Epiphone offers fine quality flat top and jumbo flat top guitars, and important entries in the banjo field. Among these fine instruments, we're sure you’ll find one of the “authentic” American Instruments particularly suited to your needs.
