The Epiphone USA Casino Hollowbody Electric Guitar in Royal Tan is now made in the USA for the first time in over 50 years. Since its introduction in 1961, the Epiphone Casino has been the choice of legendary musicians like Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, Keith Richards, Ray Davies and Dave Davies. This reissue of a rock icon features a classic maple and poplar body with a nitrocellulose lacquer finish in Royal Tan. The Epiphone USA Casino with hand-wired electronics, Orange Drop capacitors and Gibson USA P-90 Dogear single-coil pickups for a truly American tone with vintage-inspired style.

Hand-Wired Electronics Provide Legendary Tone

The Epiphone USA Casino delivers iconic tone through hand-wired electronics with Orange Drop capacitors. The hand-wired design and high-quality components provide enhanced resonance, clarity and responsiveness. The Orange Drop capacitors are coveted for their smooth, musical tone and were originally used in Gibsons from the 1950s and 1960s. Combined with the P-90 pickups, the hand-wired electronics produce a dynamic range of vintage-inspired sounds from crisp and articulate to warm and throaty.

Gibson USA P-90 Dogear Pickups

The Epiphone USA Casino features Gibson USA P-90 Dogear single-coil pickups for authentic P-90 tone. The P-90 pickups produce a balanced tone with tight lows, crisp highs and a distinctive midrange growl. The bridge pickup provides a brighter, more cutting sound while the neck pickup delivers a warmer, rounder tone. Together they cover a wide range of tones from overdriven rock leads to jazz and blues.

Premium Materials and Construction

As part of the Epiphone USA Collection, the Casino is handcrafted in America using premium materials and traditional construction methods. The maple top, back and sides provide a rigid base for the pickups and electronics as well as resonance. The mahogany neck has a comfortable medium C-profile and 12" radius for fast, low-action playing. The rosewood fingerboard has 22 medium jumbo frets and pearl dot inlays. The Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece enable precise intonation and sustain.

Vintage-Inspired Style

The Epiphone USA Casino has a stylish double-cutaway hollowbody design inspired by Epiphone's iconic archtops of the 1950s and 60s. The Royal Tan nitrocellulose lacquer finish gives it a vintage patina and feel. The f-holes, trapeze tailpiece and block fretboard inlays provide visual flair. A cream binding accents the body, neck and headstock. With its blend of premium components, handcrafted construction and mid-century design, the Epiphone USA Casino delivers vintage-inspired tone and style for today's guitarist.
