The Epiphone Casino Hollowbody electric guitar is an underrated gem, having been used by some of the greatest artists in the world to produce some of the most iconic guitar parts ever composed. Numerous legends such as Keith Richards and Ray Davies have brandished the Casino but is ultimately known for its relationship with The Beatles. McCartney used his Casino on many early Beatles recordings, Lennon rocked it live later in their career, and Harrison looked to it to provide his sound on tour. One look at Epiphones latest version of the Casino and we can see exactly what attracted these pop-rock giants to this guitar.
It's amazing to play and generates a unique sound. Extremely lightweight and comfortable, its hollow Maple body produces a warm, focused sound that is bright and snappy, matched to a fast and slim Mahogany neck with a smooth Pau Ferro fingerboard that adds some warmth to balance out the overall sound. This versatile sound and high-level playability makes this guitar suitable for many styles and genres, from sultry blues to explosive jazz and even straight cranked up rock'n'roll.
The iconic vintage sound of the Casino is largely due to its P-90 pickups, that when put through the tube amps of the day, produced a tonal quality like no other. These P-90s respond excellently to attack and sound their best just below their highest output.
