Used Epiphone Revolution Casino Limited Edition John Lennon 1843/1965

$4,499.00

The Epiphone Casino stands out as one of the most significant electric guitars used by John Lennon and the Beatles. The Casino can be heard on many of the most memorable Beatle recordings. By the mid-point of Lennon’s career as a Beatle, when guitar manufacturers of the day would have done anything to get their instruments into his hands, Lennon often chose the Epiphone Casino over all other guitars for recordings, live performances, television appearances and films. This preference for the Casino carried on into his years as a solo artist as well. In the vintage guitar collecting community, an original Epiphone Casino such as the one Lennon used, is considered a prized find. As a result, the Epiphone Casino remains one of the most sought after electric guitars that Epiphone has ever produced.
