Overview

A favorite of Gary Clark, Jr., Dwight Trash and, most famously, John Lennon, the Epiphone Casino is a true classic. With a fully hollow thinline body and punchy P-90s, the current reissue gets all the twang and scream of the original. Great for country, blues, jazz and lighter indie. Hard rockers, beware - that fully hollow body will feedback. Not necessarily a bad thing if you know how to make it work for you to get some truly snarling tone.

    I looked for a good while to find a "Kia" Casino Coupe. Very happy with this early 2000's Korean-made Epi. I play finger-style and had it set up to my liking - worked the nut a bit and raised the action a little. It plays smooth and the P90s sound, well, fab. I've had much more expensive hollow-bodies that didn't play and sound as good. Very happy with this axe.

    Just bought a new casino, made in china. It is a great guitar. Feels really good, and sounds good too. I have vintage and custom shop gibsons, but i would certainly recommend the new casino.

  • Awesome Deal!!!

    I was a little apprehensive to buy one on line, but I love it!!! So comfortable, great neck and well made!!! All my other guitars are taking a back seat at the moment. Can’t rave enough about these great and awesomely priced guitars!!!

    Really enjoying this guitar. Is my first Epiphone as well as first hollow body electric so I really have no basis to compare. Guitar is easy to play, sounds great plugged in or just unplugged. P90s have quite a bit of range by adjusting tone controls making it a lot more versatile than I expecte…

    Great guitar that has a vintage tone and feel. I just can't put it down as it's so easy play. Like that since it is a hollow body you do not need to plug in to work on songs. No longer need to have an acoustic laying out for song idea's as this covers both. Liked it so much I have both the coupe and full size models.
