Orville Gibson invented the modern mandolin, and mandolins have been a part of Epiphone's DNA since its earliest days. Company founder Anastasios Stathopoulo's first (and only) patent, filed in 1909, was for a mandolin. Gibson Master Luthier Lloyd Loar designed the original F-5 mandolin in the early 1920s, and its eventual success even led to the creation of new musical genres, such as bluegrass.
