Epiphone Casino Test Key specifications of Epiphone Casino Coupe VideoEpiphone Casino (2019) Natural
Now, the other difference of the Casino Coupe from my Pro is the new unbranded Epiphone generic small-buttoned "vintage" style tuners with the pressed in bushings as opposed to the "Grover Deluxe" headstone or tulip-buttoned tuners with adjustable hex-bushings on my guitar.
Even though the newer ones have a higher turning ratio, in theory more accurate and quicker to tune, there was some unwanted slop.
When lowering the pitch on the "G" string, I turned the peg half a turn before the pitch lowered. No clicking or pinging at the nut but just felt a little sloppy and thus more fiddly to tune.
I really don't care for excessive peg turning to finely alter the pitch. The Grovers, on the other hand, even with the ratio are much more precise and feel like they're manufactured to tighter tolerances.
Easier to tune than the new ones, go figure! Would need to play the Coupe for a day or two to determine tuning stability and potential tuner slippage.
It could be a good player after proper and necessary setup but I'm not thrilled with either the iffy toggle OR Epiphone's introduction of the new, perhaps marginal unbranded tuners.
My thoughts exactly. Once you have changed the hardware and tuners it is a really awesome guitar. Plays great and sounds great. The original P90s are usable but a little muddy.
Switch, jack and pots definitely need to be replaced and the tuners lack tuning stability. I've pimped mine a little exessively but I like the result.
Grover Sta-tite tuners not a drop in replacement, new holes were needed , Vintage Vibe blade style dogears and just for cosmetics the finger tailpiece and pickguard from Quick Guards.
As I recall, the Casino Coupe is like the Gibson ES The same shape but without the centre-block down the middle, making it much lighter and presumably more prone to feedback.
You're correct about the weight, mine has the center-block and it's no issue. Just didn't think about it. Feedback is more about the cavity size and resonance than weight and would be less in the smaller body.
My Gibson ES could be a real feedback monster if not positioned properly relative to the amp. Wow, that is one tricked out pony, Sofaplayer.
The pups are killer looking and I'll bet they sound fabulous. Somehow the tailpiece gives it a "Swinger" kind of vibe, tasty! Had to look twice at the PG, very cool.
Best looking tuners I've seen on an Epi, must be a bit of coin in your Coupe! Thanks for the confirmation concerning the tuners.
Epiphone's choice to change the spec on those takes a good playing guitar then degrades its performance My Epi ES is a great guitar, it plays very well indeed, I've gigged it several times.
Its tuning is rock stable with the Grovers. I've already replaced the jack with a Switchcraft and plastic jack-plate with the metal Gibson plate out of caution.
The small-bodied ES style guitars are good instruments, and a lot of folks don't wish to buy a guitar and then immediately have to swap out something just to make it play properly!
It's a darn shame that for a few cents, Epiphone would jeopardize a product line with a CRUCIAL part of the instrument.
Congrats on the new Coupe. I got mine a few months ago, and changed out the tuners to Grover Deluxe Vintage. In dieser Region darf ruhig an der Verpackung gespart werden, solange das Instrument nicht unter der Preisschraube leidet.
Der Zusatz "Coupe" soll übrigens die etwas handlicheren Abmessungen der Gitarre beschreiben, die kleiner ausfallen als die herkömmlicher Halbresonanzgitarren wie beispielsweise der ES Da es sich um eine Hollowbody handelt, ist sie mit schlanken Gramm ein echtes Leichtgewicht.
Im Gegensatz zum Original kommt die Casino Coupe VS ohne Sustainblock aus, ein Konstruktionsmerkmal, das ansonsten einerseits den Korpus in seinem Schwingungsverhalten einschränkt, andererseits aber auch die Rückkoppelungsgefahr mindert.
Die Decke der Casino ist somit freischwingend und besitzt zwei F-Löcher. Um die Vorder- wie die Rückseite läuft ein elfenbeinfarbenes Binding, das die ohnehin schon tolle Optik der Gitarre weiter abrundet.
Alle Arbeiten sind tadellos ausgeführt und zeigen, auf welch hohem Niveau heute auch günstige Gitarren gebaut werden können.
Und wo wir gerade dabei sind: Dieses Instrument kommt aus China. Ein Epiphone P90R Tonabnehmer am Hals und ein P90T am Steg sorgen für die magnetische Wandlung der Saitenschwingungen und lassen sich typischerweise mit jeweils einem Lautstärke- und einem Klangregler einstellen.
Der Dreiweg-Schalter zur Anwahl der Pickups befindet sich zwischen Stegpickup und dem Volume-Regler und ist damit sehr komfortabel zu erreichen, ohne dass man Angst haben muss, ihn im Eifer des Gefechts versehentlich zu verstellen.
With a bit of tweaking and adjustment, you can make the Rocktile Pro LOHB sound very good indeed and for the budget-conscious, there is a lot worse on the market.
This is a compact version of the original Casino model and still retains many of its features just on a smaller scale. You may find the Coupe a bit more comfortable due to its reduced size.
Yes, like most electric guitars you can swap the strings on the Casino Coupe. It is very easy to do and you will find various videos online if you need help.
The Epiphone Casino Coupe weighs around 6 lbs with steel strings. For comparison, the original Casino Coupe generally weighs around 12 lbs.
No, the Casino Couple does not come with a case or gig bag so you will need to purchase one separately.
The Epiphone Casino Coupe offers a fantastic sound in a compact body for a very good price. Given the illustrious history of the Epiphone Casino and the musicians that used it, the Coupe has a lot to live up to.
As a somewhat scaled-down and compact alternative to the Casino, there are a great number of things that the Coupe does well.
It is also fairly lightweight which will appeal to many and it weighs less than the similarly sized Les Paul. Even with all of this, it is with its sound that helps the Coupe become a great guitar.
With its fully hollow body, it can be used as an acoustic guitar however when plugged in it comes into its own as well. Will you find better sounding guitars out there?
Of course but when you consider the price of the Casino Coupe it really is hard to go wrong. Overall the Epiphone Casino Coupe is a fantastically well-made guitar that offers a compact size with a ton of great features and craftsmanship that is ideal to beginners and intermediates alike.
The thinline, hollowbody Epiphone Casino was introduced in , two years after its close cousin, the Gibson ES The neck shape feels particularly thin and speedy on many Gibsons and Epiphones of this vintage.
The green hue in the finish has faded somewhat on the top. Is this the only Royal Olive Casino ever made? Despite carrying out extensive searches for another example, this is the only one that we can find on the whole of the internet, and the only one that the vintage experts we spoke to have heard of.
In use Regardless of scarcity, this is simply a great hollowbody electric guitar. The bridge P is bright, woody and bursting with 60s sonic authenticity.
Note two thumbwheels on each side of the Tune-o-matic: likely a factory addition designed to alleviate potentially destructive string tension on the posts.
The original trapeze tailpiece is present and correct. The middle setting is also really well balanced for 60s rhythm parts and plenty more besides.
The green hue in the Royal Olive finish extends to the back, which would have been brown on regular Sunburst models. Like any vintage hollowbody, controlling feedback can be something of a challenge at stage volume levels, but when you do strike a balance, you are rewarded with musical and moreish feedback and effortless bloom.
The original Kluson Deluxe tuners still function smoothly. It really is a delight to plug in. This headstock outline was superseded by a longer and thinner shape in
