I have always been a great Fan of the Epiphone Casino and have had many through the years. This is a Modern Casino outfitted as John Lennons iconic stripped ’66 Epiphone Casino… The often called “Revolution Guitar”. Staying in the same spirit this guitar sports upgraded Gold Grover Machine heads with the original Kluson tuner screw holes still visible. It also has two Chrome Dog Ear P-90’s. John Lennon used his Casino on nearly every Beatles song from 1966 thru 1970. Think about it, from She Said She Said and I am the Walrus and Helter Skelter to Revolution. This is an extremely versatile instrument of sure. Really…Unbelievable…when you think about it! That’s all of the Albums Revolver, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour, The White Album, Yellow Submarine, Let It Be, Hey Jude, and Abbey Road.. not to mention most of his Plastic Ono Band stuff…WOW! (sorry for the little music history lesson … But it never fails to floor me even after all these years!)
It also comes with an original Epiphone hard Shell Case.
Other than the new Polyurethane finish, I simply do not see much difference between the Vintage and Modern Casinos.
