The 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 since its release in 1961, has been a favourite of tone connoisseurs from Keith Richards to The Beatles, to GRAMMY winner Gary Clark Jr.
Classic Casino Form
The Casino Coupe features the familiar Casino styling and shape—only proportioned smaller. The body and top are made from 5-layer laminated Maple with single layer ivory binding on the top and back. The orange soundhole label has the same typeface and style as 60s era vintage models and the white/black 3-layer pickguard gives the Casino Coupe a classic look.
The Heart of the Casino, 'Dogear' P-90s
Like the original Casino, the Casino Coupe has full-size, full power 'dogear' P-90s. The P-90, which was first introduced by Gibson Brands in 1948, is simply the best sounding single coil pickup to be found. With a full rounded tone, the P-90 is the 'all purpose' pickup, capable of sharp lead tones, clean rhythm punch, and gritty, easily controllable feedback. And combined with the pure hollowbody 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 along with Epiphone's heavy duty 1/4 inch non-rotating nickel input jack. The archtop's all Nickel hardware includes the LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge and a Coupe-sized Trapeze tailpiece.
The Mahogany hand-set neck has the classic 24.75 inch scale with a 1960s SlimTaper™ shape. The SlimTaper™ is patterned after prime vintage models. Its 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 vintage 'Epiphone' logo is in pearloid and the Kalamazoo-era 'bullet' truss rod cover—also a feature of 60s Casinos--has the Epi 'E' logo in white silkprint.
The Rosewood fingerboard has Parallelogram Pearloid inlays with a 12 inch radius and 22 easy-to-play medium jumbo frets.
