Comments about Epiphone Casino Coupe Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

Bought my Cherry Casino Coupe a couple of weeks ago and I waited a little while before posting a review of it.

This is the first guitar I've owned with P-90 pickups and I wished I'd bought a guitar with these pickups before now. I play mostly gospel music at church and at nursing homes. I play mostly in a country/rockabilly style and this guitar really works well for me.

I own an Epiphone Dot, which is a 335 style guitar, and the Casino Coupe has the newer 339 size body. I really like the smaller size of this guitar; it is more comfortable to play that the Dot. I also like the fact that the output jack is where it ought to be, on the bottom of the body, instead on the face of the guitar as with the Dot. Quality, Fit and Finish are great and the guitar looks sharp in cherry. I like the tuners on this guitar as well.

Although the Casino Coupe is a hollow body, it doesn't seem as prone to feedback as other hollow bodies I've own; possibly because of it's smaller size. It sounds great through my Fender Vibrochamp amp and the guitar is a lot of fun to play.

The only problem I see with this guitar as shipped is the stock strings: the high E string started going flat and wouldn't stay in pitch at all. I prefer heavier gauge strings with a wound G string anyway so I changed them out with the D'Addario EXL115W strings I usually used and it sounds better with those strings than the stock strings and they do hold their pitch better. I might experiment a little and try some flatwounds on it in the future.

With the next few weeks once it's broken in, I intend to get the 339 style case Epiphone case for my Casino Couple.

If you are looking for a great playing electric with P-90 pickups, buy this guitar!

    Comments about Epiphone Casino Coupe Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    I had been eyeing the John Lennon Inspired Casino for about a year and a lightly used one had shown up in a local store. I went in, checked it out and thought that I would be back to buy it the next payday. Before payday rolled around, I came across Epiphone's pre-release ad for the Casino Coupe. This put the brakes on the JLI Casino purchase, at least until I knew the pricing and got my hands on the Coupe. I had always liked the size of the 339s, but there hadn't been a hollowbody that size.

    So I waited for almost an entire year before they made their way up to my part of Canada, but one of the local music stores finally received stock and so I went down and was immediately impressed with the playability, size, weight, fit and finish of the one they had in stock. Unfortunately it was a sunburst and I wanted the natural. So no problem, one was on its way and would be instore within a week or so. Great, I thought, and went home to wait. Well that evening I saw an ad online....some guy was selling his Casino Coupe in natural with an Epiphone padded soft case for three hundred Canadian. I phoned immediately, and was worried it would be stolen or some sort of scam. Nope, it was legit. He's a professional musician who is getting a bit older and wanted to see if the smaller body could replace his full sized Casino. And for him the answer was no, and his wife said his guitar collection already took up enough space so it had to go. He explained that he barely used the guitar, and only at home, so it was like new, he even had the receipt.

    I paid him and brought it home where it has become my go to guitar for almost every occasion. I especially like that it has a very nice tone when played acoustically. It isnt as loud as an acoustic guitar which means it's great for playing or practicing late at night. Basically i think this is one of the best purchases i have ever made. I have owned it for about a year and i still love it.

      Comments about Epiphone Casino Coupe Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

      I went looking for a hollow/semi-hollow and ended up playing a casino coupe and was blown away by the sound. All the other hollow/semihollow-bodies were just too big and heavy, and such a great sound comes out of this guitar. I have gotten so many compliments on the looks (natural finish) and sound of this guitar. Usually for a stock guitar I end up swapping out the pickups, but these epi p90s sound great, so I'll definitely leave them in.

      It came with 10's but with the trapeze tailpiece, they feel really slinky. I put pure nickel 11's on there, which beefed up the sound and feel perfect. Action is great, awesome guitar.

        Comments about Epiphone Casino Coupe Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        First off, being a huge Beatles fan, I HAD to add a Casino to my collection. I have played the Casino and the Casino Coupe. I find that the Coupe is more comfortable to play than the original Casino since it has a smaller body size. I was hesitant at first to even play the Coupe. I feared the quality of the Casino would have gone down. Needless to say, I was dead wrong. I just recently picked up a cherry finish Coupe and immediately fell in love. The P90 pickups are so versatile that you can literally play any genre of music. The guitar was setup perfectly. The finish is beautiful, electronics are spot on. If you are even remotely considering picking up one of these guitars today, DO IT! You will not be disappointed at all. I've always said to myself that if the Casino is good enough for The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, or even Gary Clark Jr., then the Casino is good enough for anyone. This is the real deal and a must have for your collection today.

        Comments about Epiphone Casino Coupe Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        This is a beautiful guitar, good sound, nice jangley resonance.
        However, it needs a luthier because of the cheap construction: rough fretboard edges, etc.
        I've returned this guitar once because the "e" logo was slightly bent up from the pick guard. Second one was not much better. Epiphone said the logo can be taken off and we did that.
        They did a terrible job painting the black on the inside edges of the f holes. Epiphone suggested a luthier could touch this up. We did that as best we could on the top one only to save money, the one under the pickup is still a mess.
        The pickup switch's lock-down nut was boogered on the sides, we replaced it.
        I spent less than a C-note at the luthier's and I am happy with what I have. But it could have been so much more if they had given it some QC.
        - - - - - - - -
        Note: as I said, I returned my first one, and for the second I asked them to change my order from the sunburst to the natural. Could be my mind is playing tricks on me with the colors of the necks, but I think the natural's neck is more C shaped than the sunburst's more D shape. But that is not in any of the descriptions, so take that with a grain of salt.

          I love this guitar.
          Playability: Excellent. The neck is very slim and easy to hold. The action is nice and low right out of the box.
          Weight: I like the super light weight. It makes it easy to play standing up for hours... While at the same time it's balanced, so you don't get "neck dive" - like some other light weight guitars.
          Fit and Finish: Very nicely finished, with just some minor over-spray of the interior.
          Sound: This has all the classic sounds from the 60's that you could want, from clean and sparkly to dark and dirty. The P90s really work their best on these hollow-bodys.

          I'm an apartment player. I use it for noodling, practicing, jamming over songs and background tracks. It is light and comfortable and easy to play. I love the tone of the P90s with the small hollowbody thinline. I enjoy playing it more than my Gibson ES339.

          There was fret buzz when I got it, but I took it back and some of the frets had popped, Guitar tech with a rubber mallet fixed the problem.

            Comments about Epiphone Casino Coupe Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

            I own many guitars. High end Gibson's and Fender's as well as other pro brands. I own an Epiphone Casino. I wanted a Casino style hollow body with better access to top frets. This one has the same reach as an ES-335. The guitar arrived in near perfect setup. In Las Vegas, all guitars have to adjust to the extreme dryness of the atmosphere here. A little tweak of the truss rod got the guitar in stellar playing condition! The fretwork is perfect; the finish is beautiful and the pickups sound great!

            I love this guitar! I have had Casinos before but I really prefer the smaller body size (339) of this guitar. No flaws in the finish, no sharp frets or buzzes. Plays and sounds amazing. I may end up buying another one for my son since he likes mine so much. Epiphone makes great guitars and they are priced right.
