The Epiphone Revolution Casino is an incredibly accurate recreation of John Lennon’s main guitar. Gibson used the original 60s Epi specs and top notch materials on these great recreations. Correct right down to the bracing, body shape and depth, this is the next best thing to owning an expensive vintage model. Just like the originals, the hollow body is made from laminated maple and birch plies. Light in weight and very toneful, this is the hallmark of the Casino's tone. The neck is mahogany with 14 degree grain orientation for strength. A rosewood fingerboard is inlaid with pearloid parallelograms just like the originals. Even the headstock shape is accurate! A trapeze tailpiece, Tuneomatic Bridge and Gold Grover Rotomatic tuners keep everything solid. Nickel plated cover P-90 pickups deliver classic tone and killer looks. This guitar is accurate right down to the mods John performed on his 65 original. It comes from the factory with a satin lacquer natural finish to recreate the look and feel of Lennon’s stripped original. It even sports gold Grovers (and the original Kluson screw holes!) like John’s iconic guitar. No detail is overlooked. John's original number is stamped on the headstock while another hand numbered label rests in the F Hole. This example is number 1696 of 1965 that will be built. Assembled in the USA. An incredible recreation of a legendary guitar!
Just like many vintage Casinos, this guitar plays and sounds great. Nice action and great feel. The P-90s have gobs of tone and work great. This guitar was collector owned and as a result, is very clean. Hardly any signs if use. Very, very nice condition. Many dealers would call this like new. The guitar comes in its original and very, very hip original signature hardshell case along with a ton of case candy.
This model is easily one of Epiphone’s best built guitars. Highly collectible, these guitars are sure to become prized pieces in any guitar player’s collection. A new one will set you back 2555.99 IF you can find one. Here’s one in super clean condition with a ton of case candy for a much better price. SOLD!
