    Comments about Epiphone Casino Coupe Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    It's a lovely guitar, but mine arrived with unplayably high action and heavily oxidized frets. If mine is any indication of shipping condition, factor a thorough set-up into the price you're paying as Musician's Friend was not very helpful in remedying the situation. I shipped it back. Would I buy it again? Yes, unless I found a similar guitar that has a higher build quality and better quality control.

    nice for the price

    Comments about Epiphone Casino Coupe Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    This is a lovely, nice little guitar that is a smaller, almost 3/4-like reproduction of the original, the Gibson ES-330. Like its Gibson predecessor, it does not produce highly on the treble scale, but it has good sound and sensitivity of the pickups, and it plays well, with a little action adjustment, which was easy to accomplish. Thus far, I have not discerned any nicks or defects, as others may have seen, and I am happy with the fit and feel of this guitar. It is well worth the price, given the loftier price of its original comparison piece, which was a bigger guitar as well. I think it might look even better with black vs. chrome pickups.

          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.

                    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:

                    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!
