I own a home studio. As of this moment I have 49 guitars. I bought this one to see if I'd enjoy the 330/Casino format. I like to buy a lot of mid-range guitars so that I can easily recommend a great instrument to people on various budgets.
I have had 7 Epiphones in total. Before the re-make of the brand in 2020, they were more miss than hit. Just wasn't really satisfied with any of their products, especially the Les Pauls. I have an ES-335 pro by them which is a wall-hanger because it's so bad.
These 2020 onwards ones? WOW! Just absolutely mind-blowing.
So on to the new Casino - First of all - it's LOUD unplugged. It can overpower a Martin D-18 while soloing unplugged!
Playability is flawless. No sharp frets, no quality issues, not a single issue anywhere on the entire instrument.
Beautiful P90 sound, and the guitar truly sings.
You might have issues controlling the feedback as is to be expected with a hollowbody.
Very balanced, lightweight guitar, no dive at all. The satin finish is obviously a preference - feels great and the neck is comfortable. Very good for fingerstyle playing, but also a good straight up rocker.
Overall this guitar has become one of my main ones in 3 months. I play it more often than many high-end guitars, Gibsons included.
Highly recommend this guitar.
