Anastasios died in 1915, and his son, Epaminondas ("Epi"), took over.After two years, the company became known as The House of Stathopoulo.I wondered if you could tell me where or when it was made, Serial number is: 10071501353 Thanks guys. Here's a guide to Epiphone serial numbers taken from Gibson's website: Most regular production models since ca. Many '80s and early '90s serial numbers may follow a similar scheme, but may not include a factory ID code.FYYMMRRRR F= Factory code (this can be 2 letters as well) YY= year of manufacture (this can also be just 1 digit for '90s models) MM= month of manufacture R= ranking number (may be more or less digits, not necessarily indicative of total units produced) Example - S02021234 was issued in Feb. Another code used on some current Epiphone models FYYMRRRR F= Factory code YY=Year of manufacture M= This will be a letter code corresponding to the month (A=January, B=February, etc...) RRRR= ranking number Example - R03D0263 was issued in April 2003. The numbers appear as the 5th and sixth digits in the serial number.]11 = MIC sticker on a '08 Masterbuilt12 = Dea Won or Unsung (China -- uncertainty remains as to which factory)15 = Qingdao (China) -- electric16 = Qingdao (China) -- acoustic17 = China - factory unknown MIC sticker on a J160E18 = China - factory unknown found on one 2009 model bass20 = Dae Won or Unsung (China -- uncertainty remains as to which factory)21 = Unsung, Korea22 = ???

You can figure it out by yourself (when and where your guitars were made). Anyway, I'll be glad to help those who can't "read" their serial numbers properly, but it might take time to reply.
