Recommended Posts

Dear "Powers that be",

please have me one of these 339 sized Casinos,(w/Gibson P-90s & American electronics) in stock at Sweetwater on 9/16-17/13.

any finish will do, but VSB would be Dandy !!

 

may seem silly, but this got me a 50th Ann. Sheraton !

really interesting read....thanks!

+1. Enjoyed that. I've gotta say, I've got 5 Epi's (Elitist Casino, Qingdao Dot, Wildkat, and cheapo DR212 12 string and a bbbbbbb....bbbbbb...banjo!) There, I said the B word LOL.

 

The Casino is probably my go to guitar 90% of the time, with the 'Kat close behind. I also have a Gibby LP, Gretsch, Carvin, etc. and I think for the $ you spend, Epi is giving you a very, very quality product. Bang for the buck is certainly there IMHO.

 

And that Gary Clark Jr. BluBurst Casino is just killer!

Actually the Lefty Casino and the 339-sized 'Casino Coupe' are featured in this NAMM 2014 video!

 

The Casino Coupe is starting to appear online in the US. See here:

Assuming the MSRP is correct I think their "discounted" price is quite high. We'll see how Guitar Center and the other big retailers price it.

That actually is Canada and if the $499 is Canadian dollars that comes out to be about $450 US Dollars. I can't wait to test drive this Coupe. I sent an email to Epiphone yesterday asking when we could expect to see them in stores in the States and I'll let you know what they say.

I love the idea, but I'd certainly want to hear how it sounds in comparison to a casino.

 

I really really really want a blue burst Gary Clark Jr casino if they make some though, so it may not matter what else they put out.

 

:)

 

I would like a Blak and Blu Casino too. They are cool looking.

Looking at these closer, I wonder if the trapeze tailpiece and the headstock are scale-down at all to match the scaled-down body.

 

I've always wanted a totally hollow Wildkat and a smaller-bodied Casino, so this Coupe looks completely promising.
