Epiphone Casino NA

Semi-acoustic guitars

John Lennon played almost exclusively on a Epiphone Casino semi-acoustic from about '65 with the Beatles. Originally, the guitar had a Sunburst finish when in 1967, during the course of the psychedelic fashion heyday, it was completely psyched out, only to be then freed from all colour only one year later. The result was the present-day "Natural Finish", which can be admired in the film "Let It Be", and later on in "Imagine".

In contrast to most current semi-acoustics, the Casino does not have a sustain block, so the top can resonate much more freely. This makes the casino more susceptible to feedback, with distorted lead sounds being rather more delicate, and the clean or crunch sounds are unique at that: Fabulous dynamics with a good and proper piece of wood! Simple Beatles sounds are easy (even George Harrisson often played on a casino), but also for blues guitarists, the Casino could be their guitar for life!

Great value for money guitar
Charles Malta, 17.02.2018
Amazing handling. Perfect neck which Makes easy transition from playing acoustic to electric. I play my epiphone on fender deluxe which brings a perfect Mach for clean sound. Highly recommended. The finishing is of high standard. Playing very close to the app, however, creates a humming sound which easily is removed by findings a location away from the amp...around 1.5mt.

Very good guitar. Bought it on Thomann about 3 years ago, played it in gigs and recorded in studio. Very reliable and really nice warm sound, great for chord strumming and fingerpicking !

Good for the money but one dimension sound
pacordes, 10.02.2019
Good for the money but one dimension sound compared to a Gibson 330. acoustically sounds like plywood. it gets better plugged in. Not bad for the price, comfortable fretboard, but don't expect to much,

Great Guitar
24.03.2015
After visiting the Beatles museum in Liverpool and seeing this guitar in one of the exhibits, I had to have this guitar! The guitar sounds amazing, its got a really nice "fat" sound and plays really well. It also sounds amazing acoustically as it is a hollowbody. Would highly recommend buying this guitar!
