Epiphone

One of Epiphone's greatest contributions to music.

Epiphone has made a name for itself by producing some of the greatest and most innovative musical instruments for over 120 years. While models such as Masterbilts, Broadways, Wilshires, Coronets, Emperors and Texans are some of Epiphone's most memorable models, the Casino is arguably Epiphone's most famous due to its close association with The Beatles.

The Epiphone Casino still has the same classic look, sound, and features that have made it the go-to guitar for two generations of artists including Paul McCartney, Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher, Keith Richards and Gary Clark, Jr.

Case sold separately.

The Casino Story
For the Epiphone Company of 1961, the Casino was a major breakthrough. After the merger with Gibson in 1957, Epiphone moved away from making large archtops. A new era of music had arrived. The introduction of the Casino was a modern design that announced that Epiphone’s unique history would continue separate from Gibson’s. Though from a distance the Casino had the look of an ES-335, the Casino was a true hollowbody giving players a clear, ringing tone that could be pushed into overdrive when needed. It was an ideal guitar for stage and studio and can be heard on many landmark recordings including The Beatles’ Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds.

Maybe it’s purely coincidental that at the same time that the Casino was in its planning stages at Epiphone headquarters in Kalamazoo, Michigan, The Beatles were starting their historic run at the Hamburg Star Club. By 1964, the Beatles were stars and when Paul McCartney went shopping for a new guitar that could feed back, he reached for a Casino. John Lennon and George Harrison soon bought their own and used their Casinos on stage and at Abbey Road throughout the band’s career. Carl Wilson of the Beach Boys, Paul Weller of the Jam, and Noel Gallagher of Oasis are just a few of the players who have made great records with Casinos.

Body
The Casino’s unique features include a 5-play maple top, back, and sides with basswood bracing. The Casino’s 24.75” scale mahogany neck has the classic SlimTaper D-profile with the glued-in neck joint joining the body at the 16th fret, just like vintage models from the ‘60s. The 12” radius neck features a rosewood fretboard with parallelogram inlays, a 1.68” nut, and for that classic look, small button machine heads.

Electronics
No detail of the Casino has been missed. This limited edition Casino incorporates Epiphone’s famous Alnico P-90T and P-90R dogear pickups for that perfect combination of chime and growl. Widely known as the king of single-coil pickups, these lean and mean P-90's offer a stellar combination of high output and biting treble response. The P-90 pickups were favored among jazz players for their clear horn-like tone and were adopted by rock and rollers from the US and the UK who wanted to emulate their favorite R&B records.

Hardware
Unlike an ES-335, the Casino is completely hollow which contributes to its unique, signature sound. The Casino has always been known for being an instrument that gets in tune and stays that way, thanks to Epiphone's LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and trapeze tailpiece.

    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Casino Left Handed Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    It took a while for Epiphone to send this model out. I've been waiting months for it, and I can honestly say that it was worth the wait. This guitar is the best thing I've ever played. The sound is unbelievable, even unplugged. It also helps that it is the best-looking electric guitar out there. If you're left-handed and you want this, you better get it now.
