I've always wanted to learn how to play a guitar and am thinking of finally taking the plunge sometime this year. I've been looking around online and found the Epiphone Casino semi-acoustic guitar which looks amazing and its price is semi-reasonable ($599). I'm figuring this guitar is not too difficult or troublesome for beginners and can still be a great guitar once someone is a much more advanced player?
[QUESTION] Can someone lay down the law on the new epiphone 'inspired by gibson' line? Anyone have one?
I'm in the market. Itchy feet. The new epiphone inspired by gibson line looks fantastic for the price. What is the actual difference in these products vs what they were pumping out 6+ months ago? What i'm realizing is that most of the line up, whether that be LP, semi hollow, etc all have the same pickups, mostly same hardware, everything. To me it just seems about what style/shape you want. Am I wrong in this? One caveat is that the new casino is p90, and the 335/339 are burstbucker style. I'm leaning towards one of these 3 as the first one I'll get. Really the casino vs 335. Anyone have one of these? I'm so torn as I can't play anything in person right now. Part of me says casino for 'beatles' and minimal vs 335, but the 335 will have less feedback, iconic style. FYI I'll mostly be playing at home and through multi fx/headphones or into computer. On acoustic side, I can't find any information on how the construction is for their j45/j200. Are the bodies scalloped? X Bracing? Again, how are they difference than what they were producing before?
So I've been playing for about 2 and a half years and I've decided I'm gonna buy my second guitar. I've had an Epiphone Les Paul Standard Pro (http://imgur.com/a/R6bRMQt) for about a year. I'm thinking about either selling this one and buying a used Gibson Les Paul Traditional (I found one on reverb for about 1600€), or going for something different like a hollow/semi-hollow (Epiphone Casino is a strong contender) or an acoustic guitar. Any suggestions? My budget is of about 2000€, I've been saving for a long time.
Hey guys. I've decided I'd like to purchase an Epiphone Casino, it's such a gorgeous sounding guitar and it's right up my ally. I was wondering if anyone else on this subreddit owns one and would be able to educate me as to whether or not it would be a particularly good purchase?
I've been learning guitar on acoustic for a while now and am ready to dive into electric after listening to a bunch of Beatles. I've found two guitars on Gumtree that are similar to what Lennon used. I have the budget for either one, but I'm curious which one you guys think is betteworth it. Option 1: Epiphone Casino - P90 pickups, hardly used, never gigged, 3 years old. $605 USD https://imgur.com/a/tztEZJL Option 2: 2018 Epiphone ES-339 PRO - semi hollow body, near new condition, only purchased a few months ago. $462 USD https://imgur.com/a/JmbxRUu
[QUESTION] What's a good semi-hollow guitar for under $600?
Hey y'all! A friend lent me his Martin acoustic to learn the basics and I got HOOKED. I've done my research and I'm looking for something in the realm of an Epiphone 335, Casino, or even an Ibanez Artcore. For those of y'all that play semi-hollow guitars, what would you recommend for a first guitar?
Hi there, I'm about to purchase my first electric guitar (I do own an acoustic one and can play it at a quite basic level), and I'm thorn between a couple options: The first one is the SX GG5 Semi-Acoustic Hollow Body (230 euros) . I've always wanted a semi acoustic guitar as I grew up listening to Tim Armstrong rocking his. This one comes into black or cherry and both are beautiful. The second one is a Epiphone SG-310 (250 euros). I do like the sg style as well, specially in full black as the one I'm looking at, but not as much as the semi hollows. Now, as far as I can see in the reviews, people say that the epiphones are made with much higher quality parts in general. So, besides preferring the looks of the SX, would the SG be a better buy? As in a guitar I will have less problems or "last" for longer in terms of when I'll feel the need to upgrade, and that feels nicer. I'd be playing mostly rock in general, punk, alternative, psychedelic, whatever I can get the grasp on the guitar! I'm kinda stuck into buying in local shops as I'm using a gift card thingy so I can't really go wider into options by shopping online. Also getting a semi hollow epiphone would put me a bit out of budget (casino is going for 400e which would be a bit of a stretch for a fun thing considering I'd also need an amp.) Sorry for the complete newbie question, and thanks in advance for any inputs on this! Cheers!
[DISCUSSION] I think found out what was wrong with my amp!!
I have a small Fender 25DSP. I started plugging my brother's semi-acoustic guitar (Epiphone casino) in it and was grasping some basic terms like gain, and understanding what the difference between amp type and effect, like generally how an electric guitar worked. After 15 minutes or so, I noticed that my guitar amp would have random effects like flanger or reverb even though the effect knob was turned to "bypass." I would mess around with the knobs and eventually it'd go back to sounding normal. I googled for info and couldn't find a topic about amps that would randomly have the wrong effect, and went to my local music store and the guy there wasn't too sure on what to do either. I started snooping around the back and found that there was a fork that was magnetized to the speaker! I peeled it off and so far no sounds random extra sounds!
[QUESTION] Are the modern day Chinese Epiphone Casinos any good?
I've had a growing hankering to own a semi-acoustic and an Epiphone Casino has always been 'on the table' after watching every bit of old Beatles footage I can find on Youtube. I don't have a guitar store nearby that has any Epiphones in stock to try out, so before I drive for 90minutes to give one a go, has anyone got any experience with the current guitars rolling off the Epiphone assembly line in the last few years? Can you give me the highlights and lowlights? I keep thinking 'Epiphone were good enough for the Beatles, they'll be good enough for me', but then, 60's Epiphones weren't built in China. I've heard good things in general over the last few years about the quality of far eastern guitars but I've not actually played anything other than my American Strat for the last twelve. Are modern Casinos up to their namesake's reputation?
[QUESTION] Can someone point me in the right direction for a hollow body?
Hey there, I currently have an Epiphone LP standard and an Epiphone SG. I have always thought hollow body guitars were cool, and really want to get one. I was hoping some people might share their opinions on where I should start. I have really been getting into learning blues lately, and think a HB would sound great. I went to guitar center today to window shop and play a few, but they had a surprisingly limited selection, and I couldn't really hear myself think over the teenagers shredding next to me, let alone hear the acoustics of a the guitars. price range is <$600 preferred louder acoustic (I often am too lazy to plug in, and really like the thought of a semi acoustic) I already have a few Epiphones, so I thought about the Casino Coupe (which guitar center didn't have), but I didn't know if people had other recommendations, as I really have only ever played Epiphones. Thank you for anyone taking the time to respond, I appreciate it! [EDIT] sorry, forgot how to do math symbols.
Hello guitar! I'm considering picking up a hollow body, and I was looking for suggestions. I played an Epiphone Casino and fell in love with it. Is there any other ones I should consider? While at GC, I also tried a few Gretsch, D'Angelico, and Ibanez semi hollow/hollow body guitars, and none of them sang to me acoustically like that Epiphone did. After plugging it into the same amp that I have, it made it even harder for me because it sounded really good. Should I consider others or just pull the trigger on the Epiphone?
I recently got new items so I figured I'd show off my family. Group Shot Epiphone Sheraton II-This is my main(and newest) axe. I have wanted it for years and finally had enough to get her. I was heavily inspired to get the Natural body by John Lennon's Casino. I spent some time debating whether to get a new or used one. After reading the pro's and con's of new vs. old and Chinese vs. Korean, I decided to get a new one(Chinese). She is my first Semi-Hollow guitar and I'm completely in love. I love the tone she gives out, I love the nice fat neck, I love the beautiful headstock inlay. The only thing I found not-so-great is the neck pickup. I heard that Epiphone's weakest components are their pickups, so I wasn't surprised. I want to eventually get Gibson '57s installed. But for now, I am satisfied with the purchase 100%. Squier Strat-This was given to me by my ex back when I first started playing. I am pretty sure it came out of one of the 'Affinity' bundles. It isn't the best, but it was enough to practice and teach myself how to play. Maestro by Gibson Acoustic-This was more of an impulse buy because I wanted an acoustic. It was from one of those cheap bundles you'd get from F.Y.E. for ~$100. Just like the Strat, it's not the best by any means, but it works as an acoustic until I can get a nice one. Uke-A cheap ukelele to fool around with, also from a bundle. Peavey Vypyr 15w Amp-This was a gift from my uncle. It's a great little amp with loads of different effects and combinations to mess with. It has 3 banks with 4 slots each for different effects and tones. I have a use for each of them. It has a separate pedal system it can use which can use these saved tones. I'd like to get it eventually. Boss BD-2 & Boss RC-2-These are my first pedals. I got them from eBay for half their usual price and still in perfect working condition. I got the Looper pedal mostly to teach myself how to improv over backing tracks and chord progressions. The BD-2 Blues pedal is an excellent little guy that can go from just-gritty to full distortion with the turn of a dial. It sounds excellent for playing blues(duh). Accessories-Bundle o' picks, Fast Fret, Super Slinky Replacement Strings, Tascam Solar Powered Tuner, Apogee Jam iPad/iPhone/iPod/Mac/PC USB recording interface. Edit:Spelling
