The Epiphone Casino Electric Guitar is the guitar that put Epiphone on the map. Ever since The Beatles purchased three Casinos back in 1964, this hollow Epi model has taken on a life of its own. Equipped with two, vintage P-90 single-coil pickups, the Casino still delivers those Beatlesque tones at a price every player can afford.

Made with a select maple body and top with f-holes, trapeze tailpiece, mahogany neck (24-3/4" scale), neck and body binding, two volume and two tone controls and parallelogram inlays.

My friend recently purchased this guitar. When he first showed me and I played it, it sounded nice. The set up really wasn't great and the hardware looked kinda cheap. You could tell the frets weren't very smooth as the strings would almost grind against them during bends. I didn't want to say anything to him because he was pretty excited about it. The hardware's brand new look did not last a week and began showing signs of wear. Because of all the negative things I've said so far I will say in favour of the guitar that it sounded reasonably nice and had reasonable tuning stability. I just can't see how they can justify that kind of price and would really hope that this was just a "bad one."

Wanted a used one. No L+M in town so called their online desk who informed me of all used Casinos in their system. Hooked up with the Courtnay BC shop. They said they had a nice one. I respect and trust L+M so did the deal on the phone. They packed it and sent it to The Soo by Purolator. Arrived in 5 days. It arrived in perfect condition. Serial number shows it was made in Korea in April 2002. Awesome. The craftsmanship is high quality. The playability is very comfortable, natural and smooth. It is a well built guitar with great P-90 pickups (spank and sparkle) and a fast neck (a bit like the old Hags). Even though used, the fit and finish quality is spot on. Lightweight of course as it is a fully hollow-body build. The bridge is set in place and will not slide on ya. The vintage vibe is complete with an aged tint to the binding and selector, Kluson style tuners (easy and smooth), gold top-hat style knobs with metal stop markers. It just feels so darn good to play. All Canadian music gear shoppers need to know how accommodating and trustworthy Long & McQuade is. You don't have to live in the major centers to get good deals and good service. L+M Delivers!! (When are you coming to The Soo?)

I got this guitar last Christmas and it is one of the best guitars I have ever played so far. I was amazed by the Gibson P-90 pick-ups the sound is aggressive making a rich tone with harmonics for rock, blues and metal.This is a amazing guitar in every way.
