This is an overall fantastic guitar. Smooth neck allows a buttery feel. Powerful and versatile sound capabilities. Incredible value.

Minor cons: top button placement causes strap to come undone (rectified with strap locks); low E and A have slight buzz; "natural" is yellow, not bone like in GC picture (disappointed, but not a deal breaker.)

Again, great sounding guitar that makes me want to skip work and play all day.

The coupe is a fairly good guitar for everyday use. The stock pickups don't sound great, contrary to what others on here have said. In fact, they are quite muddy sounding, and I hated them. I had to change mine out for a pair of custom wound American P90 pickups. Now it sounds ok. However, with the upgraded pickups, it's still not all the way there. I think it might need the wiring and pots changed to get it there 100%. It's not anywhere close to my Elitist Casino, and never will be. THAT guitar needs absolutely no improvement. As far as the smaller body size, the coupe doesn't sound as resonant/lively as my Elitist. Naturally, fit and finish are not even close to comparable. Epiphone advertises the Elitist as being custom shop quality. That's no joke. The build quality is better than my USA Gibsons. Still, the coupe is a fun guitar to play, inspiring, and keeps my Elitist from getting beat up. (I mainly play it unplugged.) The only other thing that bothers me about the coupe is that the neck is strange, dimensionally compared to every other guitar I own. It's a weird, wide U shape and harder to get my hand around than the Elitist and my Les Pauls. If you're looking to buy just one guitar; to have it as your main axe, I'd spend more money and get something better.

        Comments about Epiphone Casino Coupe Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        Beautiful out of the box. P-90's sound very good, especially with a fully hollow body like this. It gives more power to an aggressive pick attack than solid body guitars, though not as much sustain. Setup and strings were poor out of the box. Bridge was so high it was unstable. Fingerboard binding had an obvious lacquer defect on the topside right at the 12th fret. How can you miss that? A couple of frets were too high (rocked) and needed filing and re-finishing. Then with re-set-up and new strings, it was a different guitar. Very nice sounding, easy to play and perfectly capable of being set up within Gibson specs or better. Plays well. Very light to hold when standing. For all the work I had to do, I should have got it at a lower price. But I'm happy with the guitar now.

            What a great guitar! Looks beautiful and sounds even better than it looks. I bought it at Guitar Center in Nashville because, like clothes, one must play a guitar to make sure it fits. Epiphone Casino Coupe is the most comfortable guitar I've ever owned.

            Comments about Epiphone Casino Coupe Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

            I used to be a semi professional musician, and I bought this to replace a 1966 Gibson es330 that I sold several years ago.. Truthfully, I didn't expect this to be anywhere near that guitar, but I was somewhat missing a hollow body. It plays very well, and even though it's been awhile since I had the ES 330 I believe these pickups may be better balanced and I like that the hollow body feedback is a little more controllable with the smaller body size. All in all, I'm very happy with the guitar, I believe it's a keeper. Being that I've always been somewhat of a guitar snob ( I still have 3 older Gibsons, and 3 custom shop Gibsons) that's saying a lot.

            Returned 2 of them. After a few weeks, the first one had 2 hairline cracks near the headstock. Took it back and exchanged it for a new one. At the store, we examined the new guitar and everything looked fine. Took it home and the next day noticed 4 or 5 cracks in it. Seems like the cracks reveal themselves with handling. Poorly made if you ask me. Good concept on the coupe model, but you gotta provide quality. Cheap.
