Epiphone Casino 1966

Very nice Epiphone Casino made in the Gibson Kalamazoo factory in 1966. Many great players have been associated with the Casino including Paul Weller, Keith Richards and of course the Beatles George Harrison and John Lennon. They all had the two pick up version and John Lennon removed the finish on his. That was one cool guitar!

This is the single pickup version with the P-90 pickup in the middle position. It is basically the same guitar as the Gibson ES 330T but with an Epiphone badge. The Epiphone Casino was introduced in 1961 (two years after its Gibson counterpart) and was discontinued in 1970. Several reissues have been reintroduced since then. 

The wide ranging serial number on this single pickup model dates to 1966-69. The one pot code I could read dates to the 26th week of 1966. The guitar is marked "2" on the headstock. This equals a "second" and is usually due to some minor cosmetic detail that is now undetectable. This vintage Epiphone Casino is all original apart from missing the trem bar. Some slight checking to the finish and a few marks and dings but nothing troublesome. It is a great sounding, playing vintage piece. Check out the YouTube video link at the bottom.

The scale is 24 3/4" with 16 frets clear of the body and the single parallelogram inlays on this version were first introduced in late 1962. The neck is a typical 60's slim profile. Width at the nut is a tad over 40mm. Weight of the guitar is just: 5lbs 15oz. Original frets look like they have been dressed and have a lot of life left in them. The guitar will ship in a non-original shaped hard case.
