Epiphone Casino Electric Guitar
Epiphone's Casino will forever be famous as the guitar frequently wielded by the Beatles through a variety of their songs. There was something magical about the combination of the P-90 pickups and the tube amps of the day that resulted in tone that made Beatle songs instantly recognizable. Now that same Casino sound can be yours - and at a price that's more manageable than the signature models from Epi. The Beatles are one of - if not the - most important and influential bands of all time, and the Casino gives you that Beatle sound.
Epiphone Casino at a Glance:
- Construction components
With a body made of maple back, top, and sides, the Casino is primed for any style of music. From blues to jazz to rock and beyond, the maple body offers tones that are bright and snappy, but not harsh. Pair that with the set mahogany neck - which brings a touch of thickness and warmth to the tone - and you've got a well-balance instrument for any genre. A rosewood fingerboard also adds to the overall tonality of this instrument.
A pair of single-coil P-90 pickups are the engine that drives the power of the Casino. P-90 pickups are unique, as they sparkle and shimmer when you pick gently, but they can get mean when you really lean into them. This puts you a myriad of tones at your disposal, including the patented Beatles jangle that was so prevalent across many of their classic tunes.
