The Casino Coupe is the legendary Casino reborn in an ES-339 body size. It’s a racecar coupe-sized version of the iconic hollowbody that for 50 years has powered hits by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Oasis, and now Gary Clark Jr.
The Casino Coupe comes with all of the Casino’s trademark features including Epiphone P-90R (neck) and P-90T (bridge) dogear pickups. And now the Casino’s unique hollowbody design is made smaller for easy strumming and travel. The Casino Coupe comes in Cherry, Natural, and Vintage Sunburst color finishes.

This month, Epiphone is offering fans around the world the chance to win an iconic Epiphone Casino signed by Gary Clark Jr.

The Casino Revolution Stars Here!
The Epiphone Casino still has the same classic look, sound, and features that have made it the go-to guitar for two generations of Epi artists like Paul McCartney, Keith Richards, John Lennon, Paul Weller, and now Gary Clark, Jr. Featuring a 5-play maple top, back, and sides with basswood bracing, a mahogany neck with a classic SlimTaper™ “D” profile, and a glued-in neck joint joining the body at the 16th fret, just like vintage models from the ‘60s.
Today’s Casinos also incorporate Epiphone’s famous Alnico P-90T and P-90R Dogear pickups for that perfect combination of chime and growl. Widely known as the king of single coil pickups, these lean and mean P-90’s offer a stellar combination of high output and biting treble response. The world-famous Epiphone Casino is a jazz guitar, a rock guitar, a blues guitar, and everything in between. Enter today to win a signed Epiphone Casino by Gary Clark Jr!
