Epiphone Casino Coupe Electric Guitar

Slick as a sports car, the compact-bodied Epiphone Casino Coupe delivers big, biting tones from its P-90 pickups and resonant hollow body.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Laminated maple top/back/sides Even tone with good sustain
Mahogany neck Great sustain, strength, and warm tone
Alnico P-90T and P-90R dog-ear pickups High-output single-coils; biting treble response
Pau Ferro fretboard Delivers strong midrange presence and punch

The Epiphone Casino Coupe is the legendary Casino reborn in an ES-339 body size. It's a racecar-sized, super slick coupe version of the legendary hollowbody that has been a favorite of tone connoisseurs from Keith Richards to The Beatles, to Gary Clark Jr.

This guitar has all of the Casino's trademark tone features -- from neck size to tonewoods to pickups -- but in a "Coupe" size for easy travel. Now you can play the legendary archtop in a smaller size without a smaller sound.

Classic Casino Form

The Casino Coupe's body and top are made from 5-layer laminated maple with a single layer of ivory binding on the top and back. The Mahogany set neck has the classic 24.75" scale with a 1960s SlimTaper shape, patterned after prime vintage models. It's comfortable for hours of play and for smooth transitions between rhythm and lead. At the top of the neck is the '60s-style sloped dovewing headstock with a 14-degree angle for great intonation. The pau ferro fretboard has parallelogram pearloid inlays with a 12" radius and 22 easy-to-play medium jumbo frets.

The Heart of the Casino: P-90s

Like the original Casino, the Casino Coupe has full-size, full power "dogear" P-90s. With a full, rounded tone, the P-90 is an "all purpose" pickup, capable of sharp lead tones, clean rhythm punch, and gritty, controllable feedback. By combining this sound with the pure hollow body of the Coupe, a guitarist can achieve almost acoustic tones at low volume.
The Coupe has Epiphone-designed and read more made P-90 pickups in the lead and rhythm position with standard top hat volume and tone controls. The archtop's all-nickel hardware includes the LockTone Tune-O-matic bridge and a Coupe-sized trapeze tailpiece.

I recently purchased a Cherry red Epiphone Casino Coupe Guitar. I was trying to get back the Gibson ES330 I owned in the 1970's which now costs around 5,000.00. I got everything I wanted and more. I was skeptical about purchasing a new guitar instead of the vintage model I used to own. These are made in China which made me even more skeptical. I don't buy Chinese. But After reading about how Epiphone has it's engineers down there I figured they wouldn't put their name on it if it wasn't good. I was amazed at the quality, the sound, the workmanship. I know it's been 40 years since I've seen it but this guitar seems comparable to my old 1970 Gibson ES330. I'm sure if I compared them side by side the Gibson would win but I can't find anything I don't love about this guitar. The sound, the action, the pickups, the feel of playing it. It's simply an absolutely beautiful instrument.
Musical Background:
Playing guitar since I was 17. Mostly just jam at home.
Musical Style:
Diversified. Rock, Pop, Country, almost anything.
