The Epiphone USA Casino is a modern version of the legendary hollowbody thinline archtop that the Beatles used throughout their recording career. The band used it to great success on many of their hits, and now, later generations are discovering the allure of the Casino. The hollow maple body gives you a sound that’s warm yet snappy, and the rounded "C"-profile mahogany neck is comfortable for anything from riffing to rhythm. But the real magic happens in the iconic Dogear P-90 pickups. They deliver a characteristic chimey jangle when you pick clean, and deliver their unmistakable bark when you dig in.
There was something magical about the combination of the Casino’s P-90 pickups and the tube amps of the day that resulted in tone that made Beatles songs instantly recognizable. Remember that Paul McCartney started out with the Beatles as a guitarist, and indeed played quite a few of the guitar parts during the band’s illustrious recording career. Paul got his Epiphone Casino in 1962, and immediately altered it for left-hand playing. His hands-down favorite guitar, the Casino can be heard on countless Beatles records, as well as in many of Paul’s post-Beatles recordings. Now that same Casino tone can be yours with the USA Casino.
