I really love this guitar
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
To tell the truth, I would have rather purchased an ES 330 or an ES 390, but being a poor boy I made a decision based upon my money clip. Buying this guitar was not a letdown and I am totally pleased with it. To be honest in its assessment, the electronics produce a little hum when potted up, but then again the pickups are not true P 90s. For the $3000 - $4000 I saved by buying the Casino I can overlook that. The neck and action are great and the feel is the same as the Gibson's. I did throw on a set of .009 - .042 strings though which are my preference. I bought mine with the case which is a good option. You need a case and the Epiphone case is both solid and attractive. The Casino hollowbody gives me the feel, tone, and twang that I like to hear. If you are into the 60s - 70s sounds or "BeaTle" tunes, then this is a guitar you should consider buying. It looks fine too. I bought the sunburst style. I love this guitar.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
The overall quality and craftsmanship are excellent. I gotta pick on the choice of P 90s though. To get a true P 90 sound you gotta have true P 90s. Truth been said. That not withstanding, the guitar is wonderful.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The Casino is a lightweight guitar that feels comfortable hanging around your neck or sittin' on your knee while you are pickin' on the porch. The neck is fast and easy to play.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The Casino is first off a true hollowbody so that being said you get some nice acoustic tone as well as being able to play twangy or bright and clear. It is easy to make the strings chime and get a cool British sound. With your choice of the proper effects pedals (I don't lean on them myself)you can sound like whoever you want to. The pickups are a bit of a disappointment but for the sake of the rest of the guitar I can overlook them. True P 90s electronics however, would set the Casino in a whole different world of guitar. Nuf said.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
I looked for flaws - couldn't find any - and I mean I really looked. The Casino is beautiful to behold and you will be proud to show it off. The binding is smooth rounds out the guitar's beauty.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
The Casino is a great purchase and all I can say is to check them out before you buy another model. You gotta spend a whole lot more to get a little more.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
I set the bridge a little but other than putting on a different set of strings which was my preference, the Casino plays well right out of the box. I get no nut slip and the strings stay in tune. You can't play up past the 19th fret but the Casino is not that kind of guitar - neither are the ES Gibsons. (get an SG or Firebird)
