Epiphone P90 Pickups & Reliable Hardware

The Epiphone Casino Archtop is loaded with a pair of Epiphone 'Dogear' P90 Pickups that produce a huge sound, which is powerful yet crisp. The P90's vintage tone matches the Casino's retro appearance perfectly, and they deliver clean, tight and rhythmic punch for classic rock tones. The Archtop is equipped with a LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and Small Button machine heads, which work together to provide stable and reliable tuning.

Hollow 5-Layer Laminated Maple Body

The Casino Archtop Guitar features the same classic style of the Casino hollowbody, yet it has a smaller body size for easier transportation and enhanced comfort. The Casino Archtop body is crafted from 5-layer laminated maple, which offers a lightweight guitar that delivers bright, crisp and twangy tones. The hollow body guitar, with two 'f' holes, provides a resonant and airy chime which allows the guitarist to achieve almost acoustic tones. Whilst the basswood bracing provides added stability and durability, as well as a full-bodied sound.

Mahogany Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard

Featuring a mahogany neck to deliver a warm punch, the Casino Archtop Guitar’s overall sound is open and relaxed, creating a sonically pleasing tone with excellent articulation. The neck is paired with a rosewood fingerboard which extends the mahogany's natural warmth, creating a beautifully mellow tone with beautiful articulation. The mahogany and rosewood combination provides the Epiphone with complex highs, thick, creamy lows, and a punchy midrange.

The Casino Story

For the Epiphone Company of 1961, the Casino was a small breakthrough. After the merger with Gibson in 1957, Epiphone moved away from making large archtops. A new era of music had arrived. The introduction of the Casino was a modern design which announced that Epiphone's unique history would continue separate from Gibson's. The Casino was a true hollowbody giving players a clear, ringing tone that could be pushed into overdrive when needed. The Beatles, Paul Weller and Noel Gallagher are just a few of the players who have made great records with Casinos.
