Product Description

Perhaps the most famous Epiphone model of all time, the Casino is still going strong. This thin-line full-hollowbody archtop is constructed with traditional Maple Laminate with a Mahogany neck and gives its classic "sparkle" tone through a pair of authentic "Dog Ear" P-90 Classic pickups.

From the Manufacturer

Epiphone Casino

One of Epiphone's Greatest Contributions to Music

Epiphone has made a name for itself by producing some of the greatest and most innovative musical instruments for 140 years. While models such as Masterbilts, Broadways, Wilshires, Coronets, Emperors and Texans are some of Epiphone's most memorable models, the Casino is arguably our most famous due to its close association with The Beatles.

The Epiphone Casino still has the same classic look, sound, and features that have made it the go-to guitar for two generations of artists including Paul McCartney, Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher, Keith Richards and Gary Clark, Jr.

The Casino Story

For the Epiphone Company of 1961, the Casino was a small breakthrough. After the merger with Gibson in 1957, Epiphone moved away from making large archtops. A new era of music had arrived. The introduction of the Casino was a modern design that announced that Epiphone's unique history would continue separate from Gibson's. Though from a distance the Casino had the look of an ES-335, the Casino was a true hollowbody giving players a clear, ringing tone that could be pushed into overdrive when needed. It was an ideal guitar for stage and studio and can be heard on many landmark recordings including The Beatles' Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds.

Maybe it's purely coincidental that at the same time that the Casino was in its planning stages at Epiphone headquarters in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the Beatles were starting their historic run at the Hamburg Star Club. By 1964, the Beatles were stars and when Paul McCartney went shopping for a new guitar that could feed back, he reached for a Casino. John Lennon and George Harrison soon bought their own and used their Casinos on stage and at Abbey Road throughout the band's career. Carl Wilson of the Beach Boys, Paul Weller of the Jam, Noel Gallagher of Oasis, and Stevie Ray Vaughn are just a few of the players who have made great records with Casinos.

Classic Vintage Styling and Unique Features

The Casino's unique features include a 5-play maple top, back, and sides with basswood bracing. The Casino's 24.75" scale mahogany neck has the classic SlimTaper "D" profile with the glued-in neck joint joining the body at the 16th fret, just like vintage models from the '60s. The neck features a 12" radius rosewood fingerboard with parallelogram inlays, a 1.68" nut, and for that classic look, small button machine heads.

Original Premium Electronics

No detail of the Casino has been missed. Today's Casinos incorporate Epiphone's famous Alnico P-90T and P-90R dogear pickups for that perfect combination of chime and growl. Widely known as the king of single coil pickups, these lean and mean P-90's offer a stellar combination of high output and biting treble response. The P-90 pickups were favored among jazz players for their clear horn-like tone and were adopted by rock and rollers from the US and the UK who wanted to emulate their favorite R&B records.

Quality Construction, Hardware, and Add-ons

Unlike an ES-335, the Casino is completely hollow which contributes to its unique, signature sound. The Casino has always been known for being an instrument that gets in tune and stays that way, thanks to our LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and trapeze tailpiece.

About Epiphone

Epiphone is one of American's oldest and most revered instrument makers and since 1873, Epiphone has made instruments for every style of popular music. The name evokes both history and the spirit of invention. Epiphone has been an audible presence in every great musical era from the mandolin craze of the early 1900s to jazz age guitars of the 1920s. From swing-era archtops through post-war pop, jazz, R&B, and early rock n' roll. From the "British Invasion" to heavy metal, punk, grunge, and thrash. And now, in the 21st century, new Epiphone technical breakthroughs such as the ProBucker pickup, series parallel switching, built-in KillSwitch pots, the Shadow NanoFlex and NanoMag pickup systems, and premier acoustic/electric guitars with the eSonic preamp have brought the historic name to a new generation.

So many reviews of instruments base their opinions based on quality vs. cost. Though that is fair enough, I prefer to tell you about this instrument quality and that the price simply makes this affordable to put into your collection with no regrets. This is simply a wonderful instrument that is affordibly priced! Beautifully crafted, visibly stunning with nice electronics. Love the P90 pickups which have a nice warm tones. Fun to play. Set up really well here in the US prior to shipping to final destination. Tune it up - then turn it up to find the perfect harmonic balance of your amp's output and the natural resonence of the guitar and you're in heaven baby!

If there were one area I wish were different, I wish the fret board were deeper/darker. Please, it's time to let Epiphone off the hook and comparing them to Gibsons which cost 4x as much. Are they 4x better? IMHO, nope. I'm proud to own, play and display the EPIPHONE label on my guitars (I own two now and love their quality, tone and playability).

I'm a "happy camper" .. this is a players guitar.. sound is sweet with an edge.. Perfect for the type blues I pick/slide. There was a perk I didn't count on.. that is, how great it sounds with a slide.. Puts ya' right in the Delta or on Maxwell Street. The neck is pretty fast, this sounds counter productive but I had to raise the bridge some. The size may surprise you its maybe a bit bigger the a Les Paul. Very comfortable weight. Since I have sold off some pretty high end amps and guitars, I thought I would try the other end of the spectrum.. I bought 2 Kustom Defenders (5 watts) and with a Y chord made the connect to them both. Speakers.. 1 Kustom 12' 18 ohms and 1 12' 18 ohms ceramic vintage Jensen Seems as if some don't have good luck with a Y chord but, no noise here. The Kustoms are so basic (1 12AX7 + EL84, with only a volume) my entire idea of aspects of playing the guitar has radically changed. When I use a less then high end guitar you can dial in your guitar so it sounds like a different guitar.. I have always noticed that most high end guitars always have there signature sound.Not a bad thing if that's what you want, my catalog of tunes are from Robert Johnson to early BB King I need a variety of sound. The Casino and the Kustom amps are a great marriage. I have been a guitarist for a long time, not the best around but this Casino really helps out the cause. Sounds great, plays great, built well and it looks pretty cool (sunburst) ..

NOTE: This review is for the Chinese-made model of the Casino (which retails for about 500-600 USD). The Korean models are by all accounts a little better in quality.

I saw this guitar in a local shop and was immediately taken with it. Why? Because to those who know about guitars, the Casino's reputation precedes it. Most famously used by the Beatles, it (and its Gibson counterpart, the ES-330) has also been used by many famous guitarists from vastly disparate genres--from Grant Green's famous Blue Note jazz albums, to songsmith Elliott Smith's amazing live show, to indie rockers Interpol.

So the Casino has a reputation to maintain. However, those musicians all used vintage 60s-era guitars; how would a modern, Chinese-made, polyurethane-finished replica hold up? The answer is: surprisingly well!! As soon as I picked it up, I noticed the neck is fat and fills my whole hand (I am a fan of fat necks). The frets are a bit on the small side, but not too small for me. I strummed a few chords and was again impressed. This thing was just so full of resonance; the full hollowbody construction allows the entire guitar to vibrate and the unplugged sound is surprisingly loud. I plugged it into a small solid state amp and played it for about ten minutes. Wow. The sound was bright, but with meatiness and authority--the P-90s really shine in this guitar.

However, its budget price is an indicator that compromises and shortcuts were taken during its construction and factory setup.

I bought my Epiphone Casino about five years ago. I was orignally attracted to the cosmetics, and it was a cheaper, thinner, hollowbody.

THere's a surprising range of tone you can get out of those two P-90s. The feel was great too. Had a real low action. Honestly, I never had a problem with the guitar, though if the inpur jack were to fall in the body... or a pot... well, you can imagine the nightmare that would be. Never happened in the five years I owned my Casino.

The only downside to this guitar is that the combination of P-90s and hollowbody doesn't stand up too well to high-gain music. If that's your style, beware; this guitar will feedback.

I've owned my casino for around 8 years now. She puts out those rich warm tones that only guitars in the gibson family can give. The only trouble I've had so far is the electronic. The pots and toggle switch have needed to be replaced, but from what I've been told that is fairly common for semi-hollow body guitars. If I had to choose any one of my guitars to keep and give away the rest, she'd be the one i held on to.
