As part of Epiphone's Inspired by Gibson range – first unveiled in January 2020 – it was announced that, along with new, low-cost Epiphone versions of classic Gibson models, a couple of classic Epiphones in turn would be given a premium, American-made treatment.

Over a year later, Epiphone has announced the second of these American-made models (following the Texan acoustic), the USA Collection Casino.

The gorgeous hollowbody features a three-ply maple and poplar body, and a solid mahogany rounded C-shaped neck boasting a 12”-radius Indian rosewood fingerboard fitted with a Graph Tech nut.

Most notably, this American-made Casino boasts a pair of dogear Gibson USA P-90 pickups, featuring vintage, braided two-conductor wiring and wax potting, and hand-wired to Orange Drop capacitors. The P-90s come in either black or nickel, depending on which finish you choose for the Casino – Royal Tan comes with nickel P-90s, Vintage Sunburst with black P-90s.

Other appointments on the guitar include Vintage Deluxe tuning machines, a Thinline Trapeze tailpiece, and an ABR-1 bridge. 

The Epiphone USA Collection Casino is available now for $2,699, not too far off what your standard American-made Gibson would set you back.
