Hello friends! My name is Aleksey
Inshakov, and today in this video we’ll examine this EPIPHONE CASINO semi-acoustic guitar. The body of this guitar is made of
laminated maple with basswood bracing, the neck is mahogany,
the fretboard – rosewood, 22 frets. The guitar is equipped with two P-90 pickups.
They are the same size as humbuckers, but in fact they are powered singles,
so you can hear a little feedback playing with overdrive. Therefore they create more interesting…
blues or rockabilly sound. I think this is like cherry on the cake. The guitar is equipped with traditional electronics: 3-way pickup switch, two volume knobs, one for each pickup, and two tone knobs, to control sound
of each pickup separately. Let’s listen to the pickups. The neck pickup – first, then – pair,
and then – the bridge one. The body of is instrument is very similar
to Gibson ES 335 body, but, unlike Gibson, it doesn’t have
a central part, which protects the sound from feedbacks
with high volume instruments. And due to this, it has a hollow and more volume body.
More deep. At the same time it has thinner body, not the same as the most
of jazz guitars have, that’s why it is quite convenient… but has volume sound. This instrument was released in 61st year,
and became a hit between many popular musicians at the same time.
Beatles played it, Rolling Stones and many others. It is quite comfortable, if has thin body that’s why, jazzmen didn’t like it. But rock-musicians did. I hope, you like the video. Click likes, subscribe to our channel and don’t forget to click on the bell,
