You can bet that house this is an awesome guitar! For your consideration a 1966 Epiphone E230T Casino in a Royal Tan. John Lennon maybe the most famous Casino player but its far from the only one! In fact just about every member in The Beatles played one at one point (sorry Ringo). Howlin’ Wolf, Keith Richards, Josh Homme, The Edge, Noel Gallagher, Gary Clark JR, this list goes on and on! Something about that full hollow body and a P-90 just adds up to Rock and Roll magic! This Casino is unique in that its P-90 is in the middle, you don’t see that every day!
Specs! This guitar has had a professional head stock repair, the repair was touched up and is not visible. The bridge was replaced with a MIJ ABR-1 copy. Nickel Kluson DLX tuners. The nut width measures 1-9/16″. Mahogany neck with a depth measuring .83″ at the first fret and 1.02″ at the twelfth fret. 24.75″ scale length. Bound rosewood fingerboard with a 12″ radius. The 22 large frets are in very good condition. Full hollow laminate maple body finished in a faded sunburst. Original P-90 with original wiring. Comes with a non-original hard shell case. Weighs 5 pounds and 11 ounces.
What a dream to play! Chock-full of mojo, its one of those guitars that is hard to put down. Extremely comfortable to play, neck has that great vintage feel, tons of life left in the frets. Weight is awesome for long jams or studio sessions that go on into the late night. Classic vintage P-90 sound, clean and articulate. Great for rhythm playing and finger style. The faded sunburst looks stunning. If no one side anything you wouldn’t even know its had a repair done! Awesome Vintage Casino at and awesome price!
