Epiphone Archtop Collection | Casino - Vintage Sunburst - Limited edition - Left-Handed
Dogear P-90T Classic Pickups - 5-Ply Maple Body w/Basswood Bracing
Introducing the Epiphone Casino, a true legend in the world of guitars since its inception in 1961. This iconic archtop has captivated musicians and enthusiasts alike, establishing itself as a rock 'n' roll standard. The Casino emerged as part of a wave of innovation from Epiphone, as the company expanded its horizons and set up a groundbreaking new factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan, which it shared with its once-rival, Gibson.
The Casino's journey to stardom began with a remarkable milestone in music history. Keith Richards, the legendary guitarist of The Rolling Stones, chose the Casino as his weapon of choice when recording the demo for the band's timeless hit, "Satisfaction," at the historic Chess Records studio in Chicago. This endorsement from Richards solidified the Casino's reputation as a go-to instrument for musicians seeking that distinctive rock 'n' roll sound.
Not long after, another music icon embraced the Casino's charms. Howlin' Wolf, the influential blues artist, brought a Casino along on his inaugural tour of the United Kingdom, making a memorable appearance on the popular show "Thank Your Lucky Stars." This endorsement showcased the versatility and tonal prowess of the Casino, captivating audiences with its rich and vibrant sound.
The Beatles, too, recognised the Casino's exceptional qualities. John Lennon and George Harrison were so enamoured by its unique character that they each acquired their own Casinos for the band's 1966 world tour. The Casino's distinct tone, complemented by its stunning aesthetics, contributed to the iconic sound of songs like "Taxman" and "Paperback Writer."
Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Epiphone Casino boasts a 5-ply maple body, offering exceptional resonance and warmth. Its SlimTaper "D" neck profile ensures a comfortable playing experience, allowing for effortless movement across the 24.75" scale length and 22-fret laurel fingerboard. The Casino's hardware includes a LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and a traditional trapeze tailpiece, providing superb intonation and vintage aesthetics.
To preserve the Casino's heritage, Epiphone equips this remarkable instrument with vintage-style tuners, meticulously designed to replicate the iconic look and feel of the originals. Completing the sonic package are the renowned Dogear P-90T Classic pickups, delivering that unmistakable vintage tone with remarkable clarity and punch.
With its rich history, remarkable craftsmanship, and renowned sound, the Epiphone Casino continues to be a beloved choice for musicians across genres. From rock 'n' roll pioneers to contemporary artists, the Casino remains a timeless symbol of musical excellence and creativity. Experience the magic of the Epiphone Casino and unleash your own sonic journey.
