    This is an amazing instrument. I am amazed with the sounds you can get from it, from heavy blues to bright acoustic sounding alt pop/rock ( jazz too). The body feels large at first ( for an electric) but the sounds you can get from it more then make up for it. It's also dead sexy. It is my first hollow body and I am loving it. One of the first guitars I've owned that I was in love with from day one.
    All the feature you would expect from a classic model like this. Pretty straight forward equipment for the price range, still feels like a great value though.
    Mine is a Chinese made 2011 model in natural finish. It has a good fit and finish, it seems to be as well built and solid as any of the similar Gibson models I have been around. Even the set up on the one I received was excellent and was great to play out of the box.
    Seems an excellent value for the money. Great feel to it, good looks, comfortable neck, solid feel to all the controls. The tuners seem good so far, and I am happy with this level of P-90 pick-ups.

    I bought a Korean Casino and found that it rattled. The electronics were so bad that I could never get any kind of cool sound from the instrument. I sent it back and got another that didn't rattle especially, but the pick-ups were the same low quality. It had no sound. Everyone said they didn't like it. I thought it was so pretty that I didn't want to get rid of it, so I had the pick-ups replaced with custom-built P-90s and people said it was doing what it was supposed to do, but by then I was sick of my Casino and I shelved it and bought a Variax, which at least I know has some sound. I wouldn't get one of these Casinos. I've tried those cheap Artcores and they smoke compared to the Korean Casino. A pretty as it was, the Casino was a bust for me. Its pick-ups were like two microphones or something.

    Comments about Epiphone Casino Electric Guitar:

    I have always loved British rock, particularly The Beatles. I decided to try a Casino and I loved it. While it doesn't ring, like some guitar, it has great tone. Can be used to some rough blues, bright jazz, and rough rock. The pickups on this guitar are powerful, which is nice if you want natural distortion.

    The neck is a little chunky, and if you are used to SG or Fender necks, this one will take some time getting used to. Even being a guitarist for 18 years, I found my hands hurt on this guitar. That lasted about a week, and I got used to it. Other than that, the action is fine.

    The tone pots are so-so on this, and the 3-way selector rattles in center position (not uncommon, but you cannot hear it when plugged in). The bridge wire can have issues, but I never had that. I had a pole screw loose in a pickup. Wax on the screw was needed to fix that, and now it is good as new.

    Acoustically, this guitar is also good. I jam with friends who have acoustics, and I am not washed out. You can hear me loud and clear. While it is not as robust, or warm, as a standard acoustic, you can still get warm and sweet sounds.

      Comments about Epiphone Casino Electric Guitar:

      What can I possibly say that hasn't already been posted on this review board? I ordered the Vintage Sunburst Casino and I'm so glad I did. The guitar is absolutely flawless and plays like a dream! Once I have the new Bigsby installed I will have reached the mountain top!
      It's really great when you feel like you've gotten a terrific customer value and this time I really did. Maximum wow factor for the money spent. Besides, John, Paul and George couldn't all be wrong!

        Comments about Epiphone Casino Electric Guitar:

        Each guitar is an instrument to itself and keeping that in mind the Epiphone Casino is great. I have owned a few of the Gibson ES330TD's over the decades and they all felt a little different from each other, as they should, no two guitars are the same. My Casino plays and sounds great, no issues at all. It's not a Strat, a Tele, or a 330, it's just a great instrument in its own rights and the price is awesome. Mine is the cheaper version and I would not have paid more for the more expensive "John Lennon" model for what I wanted it for. I still play various models of Fender and Gibson guitars but the Epiphone is a feel all to its own and my other guitars don't offer what this guitar does, I love it. Great construction, quality parts, a really great neck and fret work and is beautifully finished. The P90 pickups are great pickups, but you have to know what to expect from a P90. They're not Humbuckers or Fender single coil pickups and they do have a tone of their own. With the right understanding, a good ear and correct amp settings, this guitar will do anything you require. Highly recommended.

          Comments about Epiphone Casino Electric Guitar:

          I bought this guitar a few months ago and I could not be happier with my choice. I bought it off sort of a whim since I happen to be a beatles fan and this guitar looks sexy as hell. But this thing can get way more than just beatles tones out of it! Let me say that mine needed to be professionally set up (20 clams) and had somewhat of a break-in time. When i first got it, the frets felt a little course when bending a note. However, the more I played the more they seemed to smooth out and now I cant tell a difference between it and my other guitars.
          Some people say feedback is a problem on this guitar. I havent had any problems with unwanted feedback, however, when I want to I can make it really growl and sing by holding it close to my amp.
          Really cool looking guitar (I took my pickguard off) and plays great for all genres of music. Sorry for the long review I am just very enthusiastic about my epiphone casino!

            Comments about Epiphone Casino Electric Guitar:

            Not a good guitar at all... Feedsback at high volume with even lower gain so forget using it at rehearsals or gigging... as for the sound it is very muddy and does not cut through in a band mix which is surprising for a p-90 guitar, my older korean Epi Tobacco Burst Dot sounds clearer and better overall and you can actually reach the 17th fret and up ! this guitar you can just barely reach the 17th fret and thats it.

            If you are a jazz player or low low gain blues player this may suit you so don't take my word fo the guitar but always try before you buy!

              Right off the bat, this guitar looks sexy as all get out. Looks aside, the feel of the guitar is amazing; the playability is out of this world. No wonder The Beatles played this guitar! From thick and dark tones on the neck pick up to bright powerful tones on the bridge, this guitar is capable of producing any sound you want. The high-output P-90 pickups make this guitar as versatile as any I've played in the past. If you pass it up, you'll only be kicking yourself later.

                  Comments about Epiphone Casino Electric Guitar:

                  Waited a long time to replace my road guitar.(ES-330)
                  Since I gave up full time, it was hard to justify ~$2500 for another.
                  The Casino is every bit as good, construction is the same, The sound is the same after a little break in.
                  P-90s are a little low output, but they were before too. Don't blame the tool for behaving the way it was designed. Humbuckers are wound to be louder, adjust.

                  My heart sings every time I open the case.
