Description

Epiphone has made a name for itself by producing some of the greatest
and most innovative musical instruments for over 120 years. While models
such as Masterbilts, Broadways, Wilshires, Coronets, Emperors and
Texans are some of Epiphone’s most memorable models, the Casino is
arguably our most famous due to its close association with The Beatles.

The Epiphone Casino still has the same classic look, sound and features that have made it the go-to guitar for multiple generations of artists including John Lennon & Paul McCartney (The Beatles), Paul Weller (The Jam), Carl Wilson (The Beach Boys), Noel Gallagher (Oasis), Gary Clark Jr. and many more.

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 and anew era of music had arrived. The introduction of the Casino was a modern design that announced that Epiphone’s unique history would continue separately from Gibson’s. The Casino from a distance had the look of a Gibson ES-335, although the Casino was a true hollowbody, giving players a clear, ringing tone that could be pushed into overdrive when needed. It was an ideal guitar for the stage and studio alike and can be heard on many landmark recordings such as The Beatles – Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Beach Boys – Pet Sounds.
