The Casino has been Epiphone's best-selling archtop since 1961, and since its debut, it's taken the rock 'n' roll world by storm. With its resonant, bright-sounding maple body and sizzlin' Dogear P-90 pickups, this Epiphone Casino is perfect for guitarists who want classic Gibson tones for a fraction of the price. If you've been searching for a value-packed hollowbody with plenty of old-school charm, you need to check out this killer Epiphone electric guitar.
The Casino features a hollow laminated maple body, giving it a warm, bright voice with excellent projection and articulation. Its Dogear P-90 pickups take its sound a step further, channeling a stunning range of classic and contemporary tones. Whether you're looking for something sweet and rich or gnarly and biting, these pickups deliver. And yes, these P-90s nail those instantly recognizable Beatles brit-pop tones.
Aside from its incredible sound, guitarists will appreciate how well the Epiphone Casino plays. With its thin '60s-style SlimTaper D mahogany neck, this guitar accommodates nimble lead playing while still having enough substance to feel comfortable for chords and rhythm riffs. Additionally, its pau ferro neck is smooth as glass, its double-cutaways provide full access to the upper frets, and its LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge ensures exceptional intonation.
Other vintage-inspired appointments include gold top hat knobs with metal inserts and pointers, pearloid parallelogram inlays, and a traditional trapeze tailpiece. A modern rock 'n' roll relic, the Epiphone Casino is excellent for guitarists seeking a top-notch hollowbody electric guitar with a sleek, classic vibe.
