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!
