A visual knockout with vintage tone and lots of class.

The Epiphone Casino Electric Guitar is the guitar that put Epiphone on the map. Ever since The Beatles purchased three Casinos back in 1964, this hollow Epi model has taken on a life of its own. Equipped with two vintage P-90 single-coil pickups, the Casino still delivers those Beatlesque tones at a price every player can afford. Made with a select maple body and top with f-holes, trapeze tailpiece, mahogany neck (24-3/4" scale), neck and body binding, two volume and two tone controls, and parallelogram inlays. Limited lifetime warranty.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

  • Lucky number 7...

    As reviewed by Mark Ahrend on 11/24/2008

    Bought my Casino in vintage sunburst almost one year ago and the first thing i did when i got home was just stare at it for a while. It is absolutely drop-dead gorgeous and the finish was flawless. When i finally got around to playing it, i was amazed at the tones it put out. This is the 7th guitar i've gotten since 1972 and i wish i bought one sooner. The bridge p.u. sounds like nothing else and is great for those early and middle classic Beatles tunes. The neck p.u. is very warm and bassy. Playing both p.u. at the same time reduces the volume a tad but the tone is wonderful and it rings like a bell, especially if you strum closer to the bridge. The only negative i could find was that the input jack was very tight but there's no chance of the cable falling out. Still have on the original strings but will soon put some new ones on, either D'Addario or Ernie Ball slinkys. i play thru a small Vox DA5 amp and mostly play clean but at times play with the effects and styles to get later effects and tones for Revolver and White album and Abbey Road songs. i was originally going to get the Elitist model but decided on the basic one instead. It matters not to me if it was made in Korea or elsewhere, this guitar plays like a dream and i can't believe how much better i've gotten since owning it. my fingers seldom miss their mark and the neck is the best i've felt yet. If i was a pro or was performing, i would still consider the Elitist, but for like half the price, you can't go wrong with this model. Some people fuss about the size, but it fits me just fine, almost like hugging a woman and a big plus is it's a full hollow body which feels great on the neck and shoulder. If you ever strapped on a Les Paul, you know what i mean. Talk is cheap, but try a few other types first, then try the Casino and you'll see what John,Paul,and George knew and you won't be disappointed, it's still my favorite.

  • I was really surprised by this guitar!

    As reviewed by Sarge-n-Pepper on 11/24/2008

    I couldn't believe how well this guitar plays and sounds! I play out just about every weekend and have been using my USA Fender Double Fat Strat for years and I decided to purchase my first semi-hollow body guitar because we are doing more jazz and blues tunes. I honestly like this guitar better than my strat! The neck plays so well and it gives a great range of tone. I coulden't hardly put it down and found myself writing 3 new songs the first week. It plays excellent as a lead guitar and I would highly recommend it. You won't be sorry if you buy one!

  • The Perfect Guitar?

    As reviewed by Patrick on 11/6/2010

    I got my new natural Casino today at exactly 3 pm. I just ripped the box off and pulled the guitar out of the wrapper. I had been considering a cherry finish, but I dont have any regrets regarding the finish. Its beautiful and soft to touch, and it looks absolutley gorgeous. The first thing I did was tune it (beautiful tuners, by the way), and after that I began playing it. The acoustic sound was absolutley wonderful, but as soon as I plugged it in the P-90s gave it a rich, thick tone that I fell in love right away. It does feed back quite a bit, but I would consider it more of an atribute than a flaw.
