One of Epiphone's greatest contributions to music - an instrument that any serious guitarist should have in their arsenal.

I was looking for an entirely different type of electric guitar to achieve a different type of sound from my existing inventory - I have a Ibanez Blazer from the early 80's (strat), a nylon Godin ASC-Slim, numerous basses, a couple of acoustics, and two ukes. I like the action and feel of the large hollow body and neck, the P-90's are adequate; overall a keeper for my purposes. Full disclosure and as others have mentioned I took this to my local guitar tech to adjust the truss, saddles, etc. There was an intonation issue that could not be resolved without reversing a few of the saddles but that is not of the ordinary for a brand new guitar. Given the price point of this guitar, I would recommend this to both experienced players as well as novices who are looking for the next step up in an electric guitar of this style. Just be prepared for an initial tune-up.
This guitar is an incredible value. Bought the Cherry version for $499 when it was on sale. Extremely easy to play, great sound for both blues and rock. Could not be happier with the purchase.
Love this one. P90 pickups really have this pure power. Set up was almost perfect for me. Very slight adjustment. Wanted this one since I was a kid in the 60's. Great price. Recommend it.
My Casino arrived right on time and in great condition. I am extremely happy with it. Thank you Sam Ash!
Great craftsmanship. Sounds incredible. Easy fret board to navigate. Very happy.
As you can see from my previous posts, I liked the Casino, but was not too thrilled. However, it's been a few years now of owning not one, but two. 1 neck joined at the 16th fret the other 17th fret. 17th gets round wounds, 16th gets flats. Love the variation in sounds. I must say, with age, these guitars only get/sound better. Now.... these guitars stay in tune. I can put them in the case and take them out 2-3 weeks later and they are still in tune. (humidify them of course) Better than my Gibson LP, which always goes out of tune. I haven't done any setup work on them since I got them. The intonation is still dead on after 5-6 yrs. I think I adjusted the G string intonation once on one of them. That's it. I will stress and I do this on all my guitars you have to take care of them. Clean and oil the fret board and graphite the nut slots at every string change, clean the bridge, output jack and pots of dust now and than, and you will have no problems. I have friends asking me to bring one along for gigs. BTW, I never bought the Elitist. I didn't need to.

very good feel right away, salesman was trying to sway me to a gibson midtown which had a grittier sound but this had a better feel, neck is perfect width for my hand, had owned a sheraton and dot studio in the past but this guitar is much better and with the natural finish a real good looker too, set-up with .10 gauge strings, I'm a semi-pro musician on a budget that needs an ax that is reliable, versatile and stays in tune, the casino fits the bill.
First let me say that I collect guitars. I own an Gibson ES335, Rickenbacher 325, Gibson 12 String Acoustic, well you get the idea. I think people like Ray have no idea what they are talking about. Maybe he just enjoys bashing guitars. However let me say that the Epiphone Casino is a little of the Beatles for a reasonable price. I have the Natural Casino and love it. Action is good, neck and workmanship is nice, and overall a great guitar for the money. I normally would not buy an Epiphone but this is one guitar with a great reputation. No Humbuckers so you do get that Beatles sound. Buy this guitar, and you will enjoy it. Isn't that the whole idea. Having fun and making some nice music. Remember some people like Ray like to bash guitars, then there are people like me that just enjoying playing the Epiphone Casino. Just buy one and see what I mean.

I Got the Casino VS Today and if you want to sound like the Beatles- This is a must Have! The P-90's are awesome and the guitar itself unplugged sounds great! I think this is the best guitar ever made.
