During the 1930s, Epiphone produced guitars for two other brand names; ‘Howard’ and ‘Sorrentino’.


Six different Sorrentino models were sold through distributor Chicago Musical Instruments (C.M.I.) and appeared in its catalogue number 35.


Sorrentino guitars were equivalent in quality and price to their Epiphone counterparts.


The Sorrentino Luxor model pictured here (Serial No. 8110) has been refinished in natural.
