Product Description

Casino Coupe - A rock classic in “coupe racing” size!

The Casino Coupe is the legendary Casino reborn in an ES-339 body size. It's a racecar-sized, super slick coupe version of the legendary hollowbody that since its release in 1961, has been a favorite of tone connoisseurs from Keith Richards to The Beatles, to GRAMMY winner Gary Clark Jr.

The new Epiphone Casino Coupe has all of the Casino's trademark tone features--from neck size to tone woods to pickups--but in a “Coupe” size for easy travel. Now you can play the legendary archtop in a smaller size without a smaller sound.

Epiphone Casino Coupe Hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:

  • Full-size P-90 “dogear” pickups
  • Top Hat controls
  • 5-layer Maple body and Mahogany neck

Classic Casino Form:
The Casino Coupe features the familiar Casino styling and shape—only proportioned smaller. The body and top are made from 5-layer laminated Maple with single layer ivory binding on the top and back. The orange soundhole label has the same typeface and style as 60s era vintage models and the white/black 3-layer pickguard gives the Casino Coupe a classic look. The Casino Coupe comes in Cherry, Natural, and Vintage Sunburst color finishes.

The Mahogany hand-set neck has the classic 24.75” scale with a 1960s SlimTaper shape. The SlimTaper is patterned after prime vintage models. It’s comfortable for hours of play and for smooth transitions between rhythm and lead. At the top of the neck is the 60s style Sloped Dovewing headstock with a 14 degree angle for great intonation. The vintage “Epiphone” logo is in pearloid and the Kalamazoo-era “bullet” truss rod cover—also a feature of 60s Casinos--has the Epi “E” logo in white silkprint.

The Pau Ferro fingerboard has Parallelogram Pearloid inlays with a 12” radius and 22 easy-to-play medium jumbo frets.

The Heart of the Casino, “dogear” P-90s: Like the original Casino, the Casino Coupe has full-size, full power “dogear” P-90s. The P-90, which was first introduced by Gibson Brands in 1948, is simply the best sounding single coil pickup to be found. With a full rounded tone, the P-90 is the “all purpose” pickup, capable of sharp lead tones, clean rhythm punch, and gritty, easily controllable feedback. And combined with the pure hollowbody of the Coupe, a guitarist can achieve almost acoustic tones at low volume.

The Coupe has Epiphone-designed and made P-90 pickups in the lead and rhythm position with standard Top Hat volume and tone controls along with Epiphone’s heavy duty 1/4” non-rotating nickel input jack. The archtop’s all Nickel hardware includes the LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and a Coupe-sized Trapeze tailpiece.

Well worth the money.

What is your opinion of this product?
Overall frets and finish were perfect. The new old style pickups sound great. Very clear when you need them to be. I have played both cp and the normal casino, I prefer the smaller body. It's very comfortable to play without any sound loss.

very nice guitar for an import
What is your opinion of this product?
I got the Vintage Sunburst model. The fit & finish are very good, the setup & action were right on, but the frets were rough enough to need polishing, which is why I only gave it 4 stars. It's really light, & much more comfortable to noodle with on the couch than my Epi ES 335. The tuning is really stable; tuning machines are tight (no noticeable slack). The P-90s sound nice & chimy clean, & chunky, warm, & harmonically complex overdriven. I think it would look better w/ a black pickguard, tho...

Casino Coupe - Great Little Axe!
What is your opinion of this product?
Just ordered my second Casino Coupe. Both natural. My first one is absolutely beautiful. I like the balance and the small size fits me well (my main guitar for years has been a Ric 320). It was set up pretty nice from the factory. No fret buzz and the intonation was great. I put some heavier strings on it (11-52) as is my preference, and it plays like a dream. I ordered a second one and it will be my mod guitar. I plan on putting Kluson keytone tuners and a Bigsby on it. I have 2 full sized Casinos and did the same with them ... one stock (except for strings) and the other with upgraded tuners and a Bigsby. I actually like the feel of the Coupe better and there is really not a big difference in the tone. Once I get number 2 all set up, the full size Casinos will be retired from gigging, I think. The price is great and these are great little guitars.

My Epiphone Casino Coupe has become my favorite guitar to play.
What is your opinion of this product?
I received my Casino Coupe about 2 months ago and I absolutely love it. It is easy to handle and to play. The sound is fantastic played through my Johnson 120 tube Amp. The controls, switch and pickups are fine the way it came, but I will install USA Gibson pickups later to see if it gets a greater sound. It is lightweight and easy to handle. I would recommend it to my friends.

Phenomenal!
What is your opinion of this product?
To begin with, the guitar was listed in the AMS "outlet zone, and I have no idea why. The plastic was still on the pickups and pick-guard, and the finish was flawless, even in the f-holes. The action was perfect, the frets were great, and the intonation spot on. The over-all build of the guitar is flawless. I've only played it through my home practice amp, a VOX VT40X. Plugged in the guitar has a distinct woody tone and terrific sustain without having to rely on cranking the amp's gain. And of course the P90s sound terrific married to the hollow body. You can spend hours with this guitar getting really great tones just using the tone and volume controls and pickup selector. I don't know if the C Coupe is for everyone, but I'm glad I bought it. Funny thing, 40+ years a go when I started playing, you couldn't have given me this guitar...my how things change...this guitar is a keeper.

A good intermediate guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
The Casino Coupe is a wonderful idea. A small body hollow body with p90's. It has great possibilities. I bought one in natural during the 15% off sale. A very good deal. It arrived a few days later in great condition and right out of the box it played fine. The parts are good quality and the pots and switch are very good. The P 90's are the question. They are very hot. Almost too hot and do not get a true P 90 sound in my opinion. It would be better to wind them to a similar spec of a Gibson P 90. Also the feedback from the metal covers really hurts the sound. Also I would have liked to have some noise canceling when the pickups are used together. But Epiphone does not have this option. Turing is spot on and intonation is very good. I replaced the pickups with Gibson P90s and plastic covers which increased the highs and gave it it much rounder sound. It's a very good guitar but to make it gig worthy it needs some upgrades, in my opinion.

Sweet! Plays and sounds great!
What is your opinion of this product?
I got mine today, made a slight adjustment to the truss rod, then lowered the action. The neck is straight and the action is low. I haven't been able to put this Casino Coupe down! The cherry red finish is beautiful w/really gorgeous wood grain underneath the finish. Mine weighs 5.5 lbs and is a real joy to play. I love the light feel of this guitar. The tone is nice and fat for jazz and blues licks, and when I ran my Roland Cube 80 on the lead channel, man this Coupe really growls and rocks out w/great sustain and tone. I was burning up the Santana tone on this Coupe! The P90s sound great and they do not need to be changed out in my opinion. This axe also sounds great thru my Fender Vibrolux Reverb. I love this axe and it is fast becoming my fav axe, if it isn't already, and I own 3 Strats, 2 Teles, a nice/awesome Broadway, and a Loar LH350. I got mine for $360 right here at American Music Supply. For that price point, I can assure you, I am TOTALLY pleased with this purchase!
