The Classic Casino in Three New Worn Finishes

Since 1961, the Casino™ has been Epiphone’s best-selling archtop and a rock ‘n’ roll standard. Over the years it has been the choice of players including blues legend Howlin' Wolf, Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones, and John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison of The Beatles. Now available in three new Worn finishes, including Worn Olive Drab, Worn Ebony, and Worn Blue Denim, these Casinos still feature the classic design elements that make the model a legend, including a thin 5-ply maple hollow body, two Dogear P-90 pickups and a mahogany neck with a 60s C profile. Optional hardshell case available separately.

The Casino Story

When it was first introduced in 1961, the Casino was just one of several new thinline archtops designed and produced at the company’s adopted new factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan that it shared with one-time competitor and new partner, Gibson. With the merger came a flurry of new models—many, like the Riviera, Sheraton, and Texan, that are still made today. But just a few years after its introduction, the Casino would arguably become the most world’s most recognised electric guitar in the world and a symbol of the new “British Invasion” of musical acts that took over the pop music airwaves in 1964. The Casino was first adopted by Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones who used a Casino to record the demo for “Satisfaction” at Chess Records in Chicago. Howling Wolf took a Casino on his first tour of the UK, appearing on Thank Your Lucky Stars with the Stones. Shortly afterwards, John Lennon and George Harrison bought Casinos for the Beatles 1966 world tour. Behind the scenes, Paul McCartney had also purchased a Casino (along with an Epiphone Texan) which he still tours with today. The Casino would eventually be a featured instrument on every Beatles album for the remainder of their career. And today, the Casino is still the symbol of classic British rock and has powered classic hits by The Kinks, The Beach Boys, as well as Oasis, Paul Weller, U2s the Edge, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, and Epiphone Signature artists Gary Clark Jr. and honky tonk hero Dwight Yoakam.

Since 1961, the look and sound of the Casino has gone virtually unchanged and is still made today as a fully hollowbody archtop, now with powerful new Dogear P-90T Classic™ pickups.

Gibson P-90 Front

P-90 Single Coil Pickup

Legendary Tone

First introduced in the early 1950s, Gibson's legendary P90 single coil pickup produced a raw powerful tone that helped define the blues and rock and roll in their formative years. Today, the P90's traditional combination of high output and brilliant tone is still considered a favorite among many top musicians. Known by such familiar nicknames as the "Soapbar" and the "Cobalt," the P90 still cuts through any type of music, all while displaying amazing tonal sensitivity for everything from blues and rock to mellow jazz riffs. It's perfect as a vintage replacement, and features vintage, braided two-conductor wiring. It's also fully wax potted to eliminate any chance of unwanted microphonic feedback.
