The Epiphone Casino Vintage Sunburst & Hardshell Case Bundle marries this excellent guitar with a fitting case at a reduced price. Often considered an entry-level range of guitars, cases are not always included as standard with Epiphones to save money for the customer, although some musicians prefer Epiphone instruments to their more expensive Gibson equivalents.
The Epiphone Casino Semi-Acoustic Guitar Vintage Sunburst is a 6-string archtop electric guitar equipped with Alnico P90 pickups, a laminated maple body and top, and a vintage sunburst finish. A classic guitar style used by the Beatles, with vintage tones. The Epiphone Casino Archtop Collection Electric Guitar is equipped with two vintage P-90 single-coil pickups, delivering that Beatles tone at a very affordable price. The Epiphone Casino is made with a select maple body and top with F-holes, trapeze bridge, mahogany neck (24" scale), neck and body binding, two volume and two tone controls, and parallelogram inlays.
The tone of the Epiphone Casino is bright and warm. Acoustically better than any semi because of its hollow body construction, strumming unplugged is a pleasant experience. Lennon used his Casino extensively in the latter part of the Beatles recording years, to get an idea of the sound produced by the Epiphone Casino, take a listen to the Beatles' "Revolver" album and anything after that. Rock, jazz and blues are the best applications for the Epiphone Casino.
The Epiphone 940-E519 Hardshell Guitar Case for 335-Style & Thinline Archtop Guitars is a great, Epiphone branded, fitted hard case for Sheraton, Casino, Dot, Riviera and all 335 shaped guitars. It has a solid wood construction with black tolex covering, metal latches and a plush interior.
