The Epiphone Casino Hollow Body Electric Guitar in Turquoise is the latest iteration of a classic Epiphone originally conceived in 1961. Utilised by The Beatles during the 'British Invasion', the Casino has the distinction of being the only guitar heard on every Beatles recording session, making it a must-have for any discerning players collection.
The Epiphone Casino is made as a traditional fully hollow archtop, a design so brilliant that it hasn't changed since 1961. The 5-ply Maple with basswood top bracing ensures that your guitar sound rings out with all that beautiful big body sound cherished by such guitar icons as Keith Richards, Paul McCartney, Paul Weller and Thom Yorke.
Slim Taper Neck
The Slim Taper Mahogany neck has a 'D' profile and is glued to the body at the 16th fret, making it comfortable in the hand and well suited to a variety of playing styles. Married to the neck is a Pau Ferro fretboard that is a joy to play on, marked by the classic Pearloid Parallelogram inlays, with 22 frets for you to explore.

An extremely versatile and sensitive pickup, when played gently you get a clear sound with shimmery overtones and when driven hard the P-90s produce a distinct growl with a voice-like quality that you can really manipulate and characterise with your hands.
The P-90 PRO has been constructed from 18% Nickel Silver covers with sand cast Alnico V magnets and bobbins, pole shoes and alloys as per Gibson's original specification and dimensions. With Elektrisola magnet wire for the coils, you can be assured of a classic tone that is well suited to rock, pop, jazz, country and more.
