Product Description

Famous ever since the Fab Four started using it in the '60s, the Epiphone Casino's semi-hollow, laminated maple body brings a familiar jangle to rhythm playing, while its P-90 pickups give it plenty of bite for leads. The basis on which Gibson built their ES Series of guitars -- some of the most enduring instruments in the development of rock'n'roll -- the Epiphone Casino Archtop is truly a guitarist's guitar, rich in tradition, tone, and history. Two P-90 pickups allow you to dial in a huge range of tasty tones with one versatile axe. And at this price, it's the only Casino you can really ever trust not to break the bank.

Check out this zZounds exclusive video for more on the Casino:


Classic Construction, Classic Tone

The Epiphone Casino's combination of a laminated spruce arched top and hollow maple body offers the discerning tone junkie a veritable smorgasbord of complex tones, rich harmonics and pleasing overtones. Unlike the ES-335 or other semi-hollow instruments of this shape, the Epiphone Casino is a fully hollow instrument. Though slightly more prone to high-gain feedback, an all-hollow guitar is offers richer resonance -- true tone aficionados gladly make the tradeoff. The Epiphone Casino's set mahogany neck and array of dual P-90 dog-ear pickups deliver everything from singing sustain to chimey rhythm jangle, all at the flip of a switch or the stomp of a box. The combination of a rosewood fretboard with the rest of these carefully selected tonewoods make the Epiphone Casino a wonderfully balanced instrument, both in sound and feel. The four top-mounted control knobs (volume and tone for each of the rhythm and lead pickups) allows for even further tweaking and tonal exploration, presenting a palette rich enough for even the most demanding six-string Centurion.

Like Shaking Hands with an Old Friend

Featuring the tried-and-true Gibson 24.75-inch scale length and 1.68-inch nut width, the Epiphone Casino immediately feels as comfortable as a your favorite pair of jeans or a perfectly broken-in pair of boots. The Casino's neck profile is at once substantial and quick, capable of digging in for some open position chording or slithering around for snakey runs, double-stops, and pull-offs. The bound fretboard edges only add to the Epiphone Casino's comfort, especially for all of you thumb-over-the-top players out there.

Finishes Fit for a Prince

The Epiphone Casino has enough looks to keep up with whatever number of costume changes you happen to throw into your set. Alternately, you can take the John Lennon approach by pulling off the pickguard and sanding off the finish down to the bare wood -- heck, if it helps you write a song half as good as one of his, it would be well worth the effort. Tasteful appointments on the Epiphone Casino Archtop include a classic trapeze style bridge tailpiece, bound rosewood fretboard with handsome parallelogram inlays, bound body, chrome hardware, and oversized "open book" Epiphone headstock. The Casino Archtop is not an instrument that screams garish pomp; instead, it gently exudes a sense of refined class and taste.

- Fully hollow body with spruce top and maple back and sides
- Set mahogany neck

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (205 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "GET IT"
Sound: The sound of the Casino is incredible. From playing clean in all pick up configurations or running it through various stomp boxes, the guitar has a unique voice. The sound is applicable to a variety of genres. If you're looking for a heavy sound, there are other options available, but if you want a great blues , classic rock or jazz sound, this guitar is for you. Feature: The case that came with it is of the same top quality as the guitar. Nice poster, too. Ease of Use: Getting good tone from this guitar is simple. The P 90's go from a deep warm neck pick up sound to a jangly bridge or in between. Turn up the gain and volume and you get a nice growl. I've played it for 2 weeks straight and am still finding new, great tones. One might think this is a big guitar and would be uncomfortable to play. Just the opposite. Very light, so it is comfortable standing and its contour makes sitting the same. Quality: Product is very well made. Mine is the Vintage Sunburst and the finish is fantastic. Even the sides of the guitar follow the sunburst scheme. It's not a solid brown-black as would normally be found with this finish. Beautiful. Came perfectly set-up out of the box and holds tune like my double locking tremelo guitar. Pots are clean and fairly responsive as is the pick up selector. Value: More than worth the price I paid. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to deal with them, so to me the support is great. With the quality of this product, I'm sure that if I had to deal with them Id receive the same quality. The Wow Factor: If you like a thin waist and an ample bottom, this is very sexy. Overall: I expect to use this for the length of it's lifetime. If anything happened to it, I would certainly replace it. Wish I bought it a long time ago.
Style of Music: Classic rock, blues, metal

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "***A guitar for the ages***"
Sound: The P90 with the Hollow Body is an incredible combination. I am not playing metallica on this guitar, but I can play a variety of sounds/genres. It will feedback easily which can be a good thing. I strike the strings harder and the guitar responds with a bite. I hit them gently, the guitar responds with a delicate beauty. Feature: It would be perfect if it wasn't for the tuners and pots. They stay in tune but they are not precise like my Les Paul or Fender. I intend to change them. Two tone, two volume and 3 way selector are pretty standard. The pots need to be changed, as well. Ease of Use: This guitar has wonderful action and feel even with .10's. If you're looking for that John Lennon feel use .9's the way he did. At any rate, I use 10's and the tone is incredible. The feel is smooth and easy to bar for hours without feeling tired or hard weary. Quality: Change out the POTS and Tuners and it's a quality guitar. I love mine. Some people don't like theirs and that's understandable. I've driven bad cars, owned bad guitars, etc. I was fortunate to get a great one. At least it's great to me. Value: For the price this is an amazing guitar. I like it a close 2nd to my Les Paul and miles ahead of my Strat. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to deal with them. The Wow Factor: It's the most beautiful guitar I own. Based on looks alone, it's a piece of art. Combine that with it's incredible functionality and you have something special. Overall: As long as it keeps working the way it is, I will be thrilled. I enjoy the guitar more than any except my Gibson Les Paul. Even then it's a close call. Keep in mind the Gibson cost 3 times as much.
