Product Description

Possibly the most famous Epiphone Guitar in music history, the Epiphone Casino thin-line, hollowbody archtop electric guitar is built with a traditional laminated Maple top, back and sides and solid Mahogany neck with authentic Epiphone Dog Ear P-90 Classic pickups to provide the legendary tone of the Casino made famous by The Beatles nearly 50 years ago.

An electric guitar that any serious player should have in his arsenal, the Epiphone Casino Archtop has the sparkling sound and timeless look that became the iconic sound it is easily recognized for. The body and fingerboard binding around the Rosewood fingerboard, distinctive parallelogram inlays, white pickguard with iconic Epiphone E logo and vintage-style Epiphone tuning machines are the epitome of the vintage look of this much-loved hollowbody electric guitar.

The Casino Archtop Electric Guitar was stacked with quality components including full 1 inch 500K ohm potentiometers as well as the tough all-metal Epiphone toggle switch and a premium output jack.

Helping to make that possible, the Epiphone Casino is backed by the famous Epiphone Lifetime Limited Warranty featuring Gibson 24/7/360 Customer Service and guarantees the instrument against defects in materials or workmanship.

The best guitar I've played
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I work in recording studios, and have played and recorded many Gibsons. Les Paul, SG, various hollow bodies, etc. I never came across an Epiphone, but I wanted John Lennon's main guitar to get "that sound" easier. I couldn't be happier with this guitar, it plays like an absolute dream.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
I debated spending the extra $$ on the Inspired by John Lennon, but since I like to tinker, I figured I can always upgrade electronics/hardware later on. This guitar plays as good if not better than any Gibson I have crossed paths with. I will probably replace the stock P90s with Seymour Duncan P90s, but I do that with most of my guitars anyway. The stock ones are excellent IMO.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The neck is thin and very fast. Ive been a Fender man for most of my life, but this baby is changing the way I play in a very good way.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
All of the above. The stock pickups are very dynamic and responsive, and blending the 2 together or separating them individually gets you amazing bite or beautiful warmth and everywhere in between. The neck pickup alone is a little muddy, IMO, but the 2 set equally is mind-blowing!
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
I got the natural and can find nothing wrong with the finish. Even the neck joint is completely smooth with no blemishes or rough spots.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Much more than I expected value wise. Don't believe the others who say a Chinese guitar is not as good as a Korean or American. This thing plays as good if not better than anything I have held and played. It records beautifully and is not buzzy or noisy in front of my iMac.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
The guitar did need a setup out of the box, but that is to be expected going from NJ to Florida. The action was preset pretty much perfectly, and with a minor truss rod adjustment and intonation it plays perfectly. I will probably replace the nut at some point as the G string has stability issues. But I have had this issue with most guitars at all price points, it is physics, not a quality control thing. For the time being I am using a wound G and I like the sound a lot, but I miss doing big bends.
