Epiphone USA Limited Edn John Lennon Signature '65 Revolution Casino USA Made
Up for grabs is a scarce (and very limited) 100% complete USA built John Lennon signature ’65 Casino. It's a beautiful rexample with some really distinctive maple grain (pics). Please note, the is not the cheaper Chinese made 'Inspired' model. This is the original USA limited to 1,965 nitrocellulose satin finished natural (stripped) top model, just like Lennon's. It is number 914 made of only 1,965 guitars worldwide. As mentioned above, a really nice top on this one too with some very striking maple grain all up and down the front and back. The specs of these amazing Casinos were based on the mid 60’s USA Kalamazoo models. It has a 5-ply (maple, birch, maple, birch, maple) laminated body following the classic lines of a Casino, with really nice yellow binding offsetting the natural satin nitrocellulose finish. There’s a slim taper mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard with fret end binding and parallelogram inlays. The headstock has the same serial as John Lennon’s own Casino (328393). Weight is a very comfortable on this one at 2.9kg. The neck is dead straight, truss rod fine, plenty of life left in the frets. Structurally and electrically sound. It's a very clean example of this rare guitar. Any little specs you can see on the headstock and fretboard are just tiny bits of bubble wrap & dust. There are a couple of string lines on the headstock and a small patch of fine buckle lines on the back from the limited play it has had. Otherwise we cannot find any notable blemishes anywhere. Obviously no breaks, repairs or mods etc. It would make an excellent investment piece it that’s what you are interested in. Complete with original HSC and ALL case candy inc certificate, cloth bag, pickguard, and other various bits. A couple of little scuffs around the edges of the case but in great condition. Probably one of the nicest looking examples of the revolution we've had in…
