  • NGD - Epiphone Casino (Inspired by John Lennon)

    My "no sunburst" rule doesn't apply to semi and hollow archtops.

    She's so pretty, that top is flawless! Loving this guitar so far. It's so weird, how it responds and I can tell that it's going to be a fun little flavor for me. Plus, it plays very well with my Vox and gets a very warm sound on the Normal channel, I really like it!

    The Gibson P90s in this guitar sound great, and I was very happy to see that unlike on most Gibsons, they have a RWRP set on here which saved me from having to break out a soldering iron. I felt the extra money on the Inspired by John Lennon model was well spent since I hate the prospect of rewiring things through the f-hole (that's what she said) and the John Lennon model has USA Gibson P90 pickups and a Switchcraft jack and all that. Plus, I don't like the burst on the cheaper Casino as much.

    Anyway, video demo:

      Awesome. I've been wanting a dual P90 guitar for a while and this isn't helping. Sounds good. Think it's worth the new price?

    Nice guitar, nice playing,nice tone!  Only thing, get a cord with an angle jack. If you decide to break out with a Townshend type windmill yer gonna bust the jack and put a hickey on yer fun hand.

       And it definitely shouldn't apply here. You chose wisely. Congrats.

        I've played a couple 339s, not very impressed. Love Casinos though. Hngd.

          I have the Revolution model. It is one of my top 2 electric guitars. The necks on the 'Inspired By' are slightly chunkier than the standard, and you get one less fret access. Good choice. You should be singing these songs, though!

          The sad thing is while the mods bump these threads with phony

          surnames. all it really does is point out the forumites who have left.

          In this case, the OP has left, he was a good forumite with a
          lot of good info. I was just thinking the other day, what has
          happened to "honeyiscool."

          I'm actually real not a moderator.

          The reason I asked whether it was discontinued is because Sweetwater is blowing them out for $599 but are temporarily out of stock which sometimes means they will never come back in stock.

          Great price. No other online dealers have lowered their prices

          Put an order in with Sweetwater. Maybe they'll get some more in, who knows?

          ZZounds, American Musical Supply and Musicians Friend would not meet the price.

        I got an order in to SweetH2O; talked to a sales engineer by phone and got my order confirmation by email. My regular guy was working their massive tent sale this weekend so was not available. A substitute sales engineer handled the order, cheerfully, helpfully. Fortunately, I did get the order in because one hour or so later, the item was gone from the site! If they can deliver, it is a great deal. I am especially thankful for the pre-ship 55 point bench check -- so hopefully no sub-quality final close-out piece will be shipped. Thanks SweetH2O!
