The Epiphone Casino Coupe is the legendary Casino reborn in an ES-339 body size. It's a racecar-sized, super slick coupe version of the legendary hollowbody that has been a favorite of tone connoisseurs from Keith Richards to The Beatles, to Gary Clark Jr.This guitar has all of the Casino's trademark tone features -
- from neck size to tonewoods to pickups -
- but in a "Coupe" size for easy travel. Now you can play the legendary archtop in a smaller size without a smaller sound.
Classic Casino FormThe Casino Coupe's body and top are made from 5-layer laminated maple with a single layer of ivory binding on the top and back. The Mahogany set neck has the classic 24.75" scale with a 1960s SlimTaper shape, patterned after prime vintage models. It's comfortable for hours of play and for smooth transitions between rhythm and lead. At the top of the neck is the '60s-style sloped dovewing headstock with a 14-degree angle for great intonation. The pau ferro fretboard has parallelogram pearloid inlays with a 12" radius and 22 easy-to-play medium jumbo frets.
The Heart of the Casino: P-90sLike the original Casino, the Casino Coupe has full-size, full power "dogear" P-90s. With a full, rounded tone, the P-90 is an "all purpose" pickup, capable of sharp lead tones, clean rhythm punch, and gritty, controllable feedback. By combining this sound with the pure hollow body of the Coupe, a guitarist can achieve almost acoustic tones at low volume.The Coupe has Epiphone-designed and made P-90 pickups in the lead and rhythm position with standard top hat volume and tone controls. The archtop's all-nickel hardware includes the LockTone Tune-O-matic bridge and a Coupe-sized trapeze tailpiece.
