What we Think...
This guitar is one of the most popular epiphone models and for good reason, with its semi-acoustic look and its signature tone from its P-90 pickups it ticks every box and beyond. Artists such as paul McCartney and noel Gallagher saw this as a go-to guitar and i can see why! Rimmers music can also extend the guarantee on this guitar from 1 year to 5 years in total, another reason to buy this guitar

Boasting a pair of Epiphone 'Dogear' P90 pickups, the Casino Archtop lets you relish in gigantic sound. It is powerful yet crisp, vintage yet versatile, tight yet exhilarating, and it's all thanks to these excellent P90s. Their vintage tone mirrors the retro aesthetic of the Casino whilst such clean, punchy sonic qualities make them perfect for classic rock styles. Think John Lennon and George Harrison. A LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and Small Button machine heads then work together to provide supremely stable and reliable tuning.
Crafted from 5-layer laminated maple, the Casino Archtop delivers bright, crisp, and twangy tones. Let each and every note flow deliciously from the strings, rich in clarity. The hollow construction with two 'F' holes, then enhances an already beautiful sound, adding a touch of resonance. Experience an airy chime that is close to the dazzling qualities of an acoustic, and yet reap all those benefits of an electric.
For the Epiphone Company of 1961, the Casino was a small breakthrough. A new era of music had arrived, announcing that Epiphone's unique history would continue separate from Gibson's. The Casino was a true hollow bodied guitar that gave players a clear, ringing tone that could be pushed into overdrive when needed. The Beatles, Paul Weller, and Noel Gallagher are just a few of the players who have made great records with Casinos, so you know you'll be in the presence of historic greatness.
