The essential rock 'n' roll hollow body! The Epiphone Casino is an instrument heralded in music law thanks to the players that wielded them; The Beatles loved their Casinos using them throughout their career and into their respected solo careers. Built in the USA in the 60's these guitars were essentially budget Gibson ES-330 with slight differences.
Very few Epiphone Casinos were built in Japan and these were only sold domestically; never exported. Our Casino was built at the fabled Terada factory which builds guitars for Gretsch.
We love a Natural Casino - a truly iconic instrument, you can't help but see John Lennon on the rooftop in '69 when you see one!
