Product Description

The Epiphone Inspired by John Lennon Casinos offer the professional musician the same key features of Epiphone's acclaimed John Lennon signature U.S.A. Casinos but at a more affordable price. Also based upon the 1965 Casino and the Revolution Casino, these two Inspired by versions combine the cost-effective workmanship of Epiphone's own factory in Asia with original Gibson U.S.A. electronics including classic P90 pickups with dog-ear, nickel plated covers and a Switchcraft made toggle and output jack.

The Inspired by 1965 Lennon Casino
In 1966, during the recording of Revolver, John Lennon and George Harrison each acquired vintage sunburst Epiphone Casino guitars. The 1965 Casino is a reproduction of the original guitar John purchased with its sunburst finish and stock hardware. Attention to detail includes the correct burst pattern and front and back, neck joint at the 16th fret (instead of the 17th), vintage style tuners with small metal buttons, black washer around the toggle switch and the historically accurate rectangle blue label inside the sound hole.

The Inspired by Revolution Casino
In 1968, John had his Casino sanded down to the bare wood and covered with a thin, dull finish. During that time, he also replaced the tuners with Gold Grovers and removed the pickguard. He first used this natural Casino during The White Album sessions in 1968. The Inspired by Revolution Casino is a reproduction of this stripped guitar and as it also remains today.

The Complete Package
Both Inspired by Casinos include a hard case while the Revolution version also includes the unattached pickguard and mounting bracket.

Support Music Education
As with all Epiphone Lennon guitars, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each goes to the BMI Foundation for the John Lennon Scholarship Fund which supports music education. Backed by Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 day Customer Service, these new Inspired by Casinos capture the essence of the 1960's and the Beatles with their authentic looks, specifications and one-of-kind sound and feel that only a Casino has. Pickup one today and start a Revolution!

Samantha Anselmo from Wake Forest, NC,
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Neck Pickup Sounded A Little Dull, It Did Not Sound Like A Gibson P-90 At All. Guitar Has Tarnish Marks All Over The Chrome Pickup Covers, The Bridge And Tail Piece...Will Not Come Off...Very Upsetting To Receive The Guitar In This Condition Because The Box Was Open And Re-Taped Close Before It Shipped Out To Me, So That Tells Me Someone Looked This Guitar Over And Decided To Ship It Out With Defects. Makes Me Very Mad That I Waited 3 Days For This Guitar With Excitement To Play Her For Nothing!
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
All The Chrome Parts Had Tarnish Marks Everywhere...Would Not Come Off....Looked Terrible!
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The Guitar Has A Great Feel....Very Easy To Play...I'd Say The Neck Was A 60's Rounded Type.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Very Dull Neck Pickup...Cannot Believe This Is A Gibson P-90 ...The Bridge Pickup Sounded Spot On.
How did the stain or paint job look?
I Had 2 Of These Models In The Past...This New One's Finish Was Not Looking Like The Others...It Looked Like I Sanded It Myself And Did Nothing Else To It....Not Good At All.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Sad To Say But I Believe The Cheaper Casino Is Way Better Then The Guitar I Received From AMS. This Guitar I Received Is Not Worth The $999.00 They Sell For!
How was the action out of the box?
Action Was Extremely High Out Of The Case...But I Lowered It Down Nice And Low And Was Shocked That There Was NO Fret Buzz....
