Epiphone just announced updated versions of the Casino, Broadway, and Sheraton, now available worldwide at authorized dealers and on the Epiphone website. These Original Collection models celebrate Epiphone’s legacy of innovation and quality.
Since 1961, the Casino has been Epiphone’s best-selling archtop and a rock ‘n’ roll standard. It was just one of several new thinline archtops designed and produced at the company’s adopted new factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan that it shared with one-time competitor and new partner, Gibson. Featuring Dogear PRO P-90 pickups and a 5-ply maple body, the Casino is available in Natural and Vintage Sunburst finishes. An Epiphone premium gig bag is included.
The Epiphone Broadway has returned with beautiful new finishes and comes equipped with Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers, a vintage-style gold Frequensator Split Trapeze tailpiece, and premium tuners. Gold hardware and other fine appointments like mother-of-pearl and abalone fretboard and headstock inlays add to the subdued class of this versatile archtop. Available in Vintage Sunburst, and Wine Red finishes, an Epiphone premium gig bag is included.
The Sheraton returns in both Vintage Sunburst and Natural finishes. It features a semi-hollow body crafted from layered maple with a maple centerblock for feedback resistance. The 22-fret, mahogany neck has a bound Indian laurel fretboard with block mother of pearl with abalone triangle inlays. The bound headstock has a historic Epiphone logo and tree of life in mother of pearl. Epiphone ProBucker mini humbuckers deliver a wide dynamic tonal range that finds a voice in nearly any genre. Gold hardware, including a vintage styled Frequensator Split Trapezes tailpiece, adds to the simple timeless aesthetic of this Epiphone legend. An Epiphone premium gig bag is included.
