Classic design provides a McCartney-esque sound
Remember that Paul McCartney started out with the Beatles as a guitarist, and indeed played quite a few of the guitar parts during the band’s illustrious recording career. Paul got his Epiphone Casino in 1962, and immediately altered it for left-hand playing. His hands-down favorite guitar, can be heard on countless Beatles records, as well as much of Paul’s post-Beatles recordings.
Construction components deliver incredible hollowbody tone
With its maple back, top, and sides, the Casino is primed for any style of music. From blues to jazz to rock and beyond, the maple body offers tones that are bright and snappy, but not harsh. Pair that with the set mahogany neck – which brings a touch of thickness and warmth to the tone – and you’ve got a well-balanced instrument for any genre. A rosewood fingerboard also adds to the overall tonality of this instrument.
Classic electronics provide a remarkable, versatile tone
A pair of single-coil P-90 pickups are the engine that drives the power of the Casino. P-90 pickups are unique, as they sparkle and shimmer when you pick gently, but they can get mean when you really lean into them. This puts you a myriad of tones at your disposal, including the patented Beatles jangle that was so prevalent across many of their classic tunes.
1960s SlimTaper “D” neck profile for smooth playability
Players worldwide appreciate Epiphone’s 1960s SlimTaper “D” neck profile for its fast and smooth playability. Thinner than ’50s-style necks, this neck profile stays out of the way of your fast lead playing, while still being substantial enough for comfortable rhythm playing.
