Epiphone Casino NA

67

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.

A Really Good Guitar!
Riccardo Martinelli 17.01.2023
It's an Epiphone Casino; for those who already know the past of this guitar there's nothing else to say.
It has a beautiful sound in every style of music you wanna play:

The legendary P-90 pickups are perfect for a smooth clean jazz (with the neck pickup), for a dirty blues/rock 'n' roll (with the bridge pickup) and for many other sounds (if you like to play with the beautiful ore volume and the tone control of the singular pickups).

The full-empty-body particularity gives you the possibility of play it acusticly with a pretty good sound, unfortunately this particularity doesn't allow you to use any distortion effect because of the feedback, but you can tinker a little bit with the amp settings for the sound that you prefer.
Generally it has a good value for money and it's a guitar that i'll always suggest for the people who likes The Beatles sound.

Obviously there are better quality guitars by Gibson, but the sound of the Epiphone Casino it's something no other guitar can pull off at that price.
Reccomanded!!!

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 !
