Hey good people, I'm looking to purchase an epi casino or casino coupe or maybe a sheraton 2. Any advice, opinions, or just comments on your experiences with these guitars will be appreciated
thanks BDuke

Hi BDuke,

If those are your most favoured options, I would recommend the Sheraton II. Things to consider are:

  • It now has the PRO designation, which offers coil splitting and lots more tone options than either the Casino or the Casino Coupe.
  • In my opinion, it also has more style (particularly in the sunburst and black finishes). I'm not sure how important this would be to you, but it's nice to consider.

Generally, I have heard nothing but good things about all three models, especially the Sheraton II. And I would still recommend it despite playing a really bad lemon myself a year ago. If you really prefer the P90 sound, I think there are other options that would be better in this price range (or even slightly higher, such as the Epiphone ES 295 which comes with Gibson P90s).

I hope this has been helpful to you in some way!
