The Epiphone Casino Coupe is a thin line double-cutaway smaller version of the famous and much-loved Casino. The guitar is very popular for Rock, Country, Blues, Jazz, the British invasion, and sounds from the ’60s. The main feature of this guitar is its versatility.
This instrument can be played acoustically (albeit somewhat muted) and plugged in. When plugged in, the Coupes P-90 pickups deliver plenty of punch and that snarl that they are famous for.
Plenty of assertive bite, resonance, and sustain. Hollow Body guitars tend to feedback; the smaller body tends feedback less than the larger-bodied Casino.
The Epiphone Casino Coupe is smaller bodied than the Casino making it more comfortable to play when seated or standing up. Therefore, it is compact and light, maybe a better choice for players who struggle to play the Casino.
The neck is slimmer than the Casino and very comfortable to play. The Epiphone Casino Coupe neck is joined to the body at the 19th fret, unlike the Epiphone Casino’s neck, which joins the body at the 16th fret. This provides much more open access to the upper areas of the neck.
