Epiphone Casino Electric Guitar Review :: Electric Guitar Reviews
Undoubtedlly, one of Epiphone’s greatest contributions to music, the Casino electric guitar is famous for its sparkling sound heard on some of the most revered record in history, and is still in high demand today. The Epiphone Casino electric guitar is made with a select maple body and top with F-holes, trapeze bridge, mahogany neck (24-3/4″ scale), neck and body binding, 2 volume and 2 tone controls, and parallelogram inlays. While previous versions of the Casino had a spruce top, current versions have a laminated maple top, sides, and back, and a mahogany neck.
The Casino is a hollow-bodied guitar with two Gibson P-90 pick-ups, it is known for its heavy and rich sound which makes it an ideal rhythm guitar. The sound of the Casino is generally thinner and more trebly than a guitar equipped with humbuckers. Due to its hollow body design, it is much more prone to feedback than semi-acoustic or solid-body electrics.
The guitar’s association with guitarists such as John Lennon and Noel Gallagher has caused the popularity of the Casino to rise and it is now considered a classic in its own right.
The Casino was made famous when the Beatles used them on many of their recordings. Also others notable palyers like The Edge, Noel Gallagher, Daniel Kessler, Johnny Marr, Tom Petty, and Paul Weller have played Casino guitars.
If you want a first guitar or a backup at a price every player can afford, nothing beats the Epiphone Casino Electric Guitar!
