Epiphone presents the Electar Inspired by "1939" Century Lap Steel Outfit, a one of a kind reissue of the Art Deco styled Hawaiian lap steel guitar originally designed by Herb Sunshine, Epiphone’s legendary salesman, electronics developer, and a good friend of founder Epi Stathopoulo.

Herb Sunshine was one of Epi Stathopoulo’s key employees at the “House of Stathopoulo” headquarters in New York and helped to inspire Epiphone to become the leading name in affordable professional instruments.

“Epi’s father had brought over their Greek traditions from the old country and Epi was just carrying on where the old man had left off. They had terrific pride. Epi personally examined every guitar and banjo,” Sunshine told Epiphone historian Jim Fisch “We called electric guitars and amplifiers “Electar” which is a name I coined.”
