    Style of Music: A little of everything

    "If Jesus had played the guitar, he'd have played a Casino."

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    Beautiful tone, plugged or unplugged. I play unplugged most of the time, and this is a nice change from a solid body electric.
    Feature:
    Wonderful parts and construction, pickups are strong, tone and volume knobs let it go from mellow to screaming and angry. I got the natural finish, which is beautiful. Had there been an option for gold hardware, I would have taken it, that would have looked cool!. Also, it is VERY lightweight and compact as compared to some other semi-hollows.
    Quality:
    Everything is beautiful; came factory fresh without a single blemish. Feels solid enough that it will last a long time, but don't go throwing it down the stairs.
    Manufacturer Support:
    I used a guitar strap for support. Wait, do they mean something else? Oh yeah, product support. I haven't needed that.
    Value:
    Best semi-hollow for the money. I even kicked in the extra $20 for 2-day shipping, and it was cheaper still than the competitors. And, it arrived only ONE DAY after it was ordered. Wow!!
    The Wow Factor:
    It is a beautiful instrument to look at, to play, and to hear. Who wouldn't want one??
    Overall:
    See my comments above. Awesome!

    Style of Music: a little of everything

    Experience: semi-pro

    "Good guitar, fair price"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    The sound is as expected with this type of guitar and is exactly what I was looking for. Not to mention the ability to get a decent sound unplugged. Not quite as full as an acoustic, but still a good tone.
    Feature:
    Features on this guitar are great, and there couldn't be much more that a person would want. Having dedicated vol/tone controls for each pickup lets you control everything about the sound, and the three way selector gives you each possible combination.
    Ease of Use:
    Since I've been a Fender guy for over 10 years, it's a little hard switching to something so different, but compared to other guitars that I've owned (and sold), or played, this is a pretty easy transition as far as the neck/playability goes. It's a very different neck shape compared to an American strat or a 50's style V shape Fender neck that I'm used to, but isn't bad at all. Overall, it will take a little getting used to, but it isn't as drastic of a change as an Ibanez wizard neck is.
    Quality:
    This is the one area where the casino lacks a bit, but I'm still going to keep the guitar as this is not as important to me as sound/playability. I have the natural finish on this one and it seems to be a bit thin compared to what I'm used to. There are some minor swirls in the finish as well. If I cared that much about this, I'm sure some good wax could take out the swirls. The only other thing that I noticed after giving it a good cleaning was the quality of the fretboard. There are two spots in particular where it looks like someone got a little excited with a sander on the rosewood. One spot looks like a slip with the sander and too much wood was taken away, the other spot is more of a cut line after the 22nd (last) fret, so it doesn't really matter up there. Either way, neither of these two flaws matter much to me. I've read a lot of complaints about the tuners/pots/3-way switch with this model in other reviews, though so far, I haven't had problems with any of them. The tuners do feel a little on the cheap end, but they seem to hold tune very well at this point.
    Manufacturer Support:
    Haven't had to deal with anything in this respect.
    Value:
    For what I paid, I'm satisfied with the guitar. The sound and playability are the reasons I bought it, and it delivers these nicely. The finish could be a bit better, as well as the fretboard that I mentioned...and if I had spent over $1000, this would have been more important to me. Overall, it's a good playing/sounding guitar with some minor fit/finish problems, but still better than I had expected for the price. I've played many of these in local music stores and none have played as well as this one does. Since I expected to receive one like I played in stores, I was more impressed with the one that I got.
    The Wow Factor:
    It's a great looking guitar with a unique style. It's a great addition to my other guitars. The natural finish looks great with this style, though the sunburst ones are nice as well.
    Overall:
    Good guitar, fair price, and satisfied...I think that sums it up.

    Epiphone Casino Archtop Electric Guitar Customer Review

    Sound:
    Tried it through a Marshall in the store, and just fell in love with it. There is a reason why Paul, George, and John all bought casinos with their own money, at the hight of their popularity, after they had all played Gibson, Rickenbacker, Fender, and Gretsch, at a time when companies were giving them gear for free.
    Manufacturer Support:
    No need of support

    "Good axe for beginners or vet axe players !!"

    Sound:
    The tone is amazing! Little wonder why so many musicians choose this model or one like it. It can rock or get mellow for the blues, new age ambientence, or what have you.
    Feature:
    I only have one problem with this body style; the cord plug-in is placed on the top of the axe, not along the bottom side like my other axes.
    Quality:
    So far, so good, still don't like the plug-in on the top.
    Manufacturer Support:
    No input here, haven't had to do anything with them.
    Value:
    Good sound and tone for the bucks.
    The Wow Factor:
    Besides the tone, the physical appearance is also what drew me to it. I have a love of the natural finish on guitars in general, and this one has one of the prettiest available.
    Overall:
    I like this axe for all the above mentioned reasons, but one thing about this one is even makes it fun to practice, with or without an amp.

    Style of Music: Bules and rock

    "Casino 'The Money'"

    Sound:
    If your looking for a clean acustic/electric sound this thing is awesome! It sounds crisp and clean with out being plugged in and into a box it sounds majestic, clean and recording quality. You can sound like the fifth beatle with this thing (lennon used an earlier model)Obviously for harder stuff it doesn't sound right but It's not made for much more than rock, blues and classic.
    Feature:
    The P-90's are money. 2 tone and 2 volume switches with a 3 way toggle. It's a no frills guitar but that keeps the cost down, instead of spending money on grovers and junk it was spent on playablility and sound.
    Quality:
    It's an awsome machine but it's not U.S.A. made so you can tell its mass produced. My "E" epiphone badge on the pick gaurd fell off (i re-super glued it) and one of my auto-tuner bridge came loose. But I tend to really hammer out the blues and riffs on the thing. It still plays like a champ. The Pick guard rattles a little when you get sick on it but i guess that's why Lennon took his off on his '65 model.
    Manufacturer Support:
    I haven't had to deal with the company for this guitar but I know Epiphone and Gibson are no joke with customer service and warrent. They stand behind their products... one of the reasons why they are probably the best guitar makers.
    Value:
    For cost (I only payed $499.00 at local dealer new) you can't beat what your getting. It plays like a $2000 guitar or better. Compared to other epiphones/gibsons i've played like the shariton or ES models. This is the best value for what your getting... and don't go cheap and get the wildkat or alleykat or the dot... they just don't match the casino.
    The Wow Factor:
    all other arch tops are just imulating this thing. This thing is beautiful, nastalgic and talks to you. Just on a stand this thing takes all the attention. Mine is gloss black and it looks classic and bold. The natural is not as yellow looking as most pictures make it look but that also gives it a real gentle yet elegant look. You need this thing... it will satisfy your soul.
    Overall:
    This guitar will probably out live me, i don't think it could take a metal/punk/grung beating and still live to be vintage but it's an epiphone it's going to last if you take care of it. I think the coat will wear out though, I notice that on the F-holes it's already splitting but I think that's just todays mass produced market. The P-90's are awesome, clean and really get the tone. with out effects you can really make this thing versital with it's knobs. The tend to hum a little in tube amps but i'm playing crate and it sound so clean. Freash and so clean clean!
