  • What a great guitar!!

    As reviewed by William Brough on 8/31/2012

    Can I say how much I love this guitar? I've always wanted a hollow body electric and just couldn't afford a Gibson, which would have been my first choice. I played the regular Epiphone Casino and wasn't impressed, but for $400 more the John Lennon version has not disappointed. First of all, it's an icon, just picturing Lennon playing one like it on that rooftop in London gives me chills. It even sounds a lot like Lennon playing "I've Got a Feeling" or "Dig a Pony" on Let It Be, that throaty tone, and you hear each string so clearly...what great definition. The neck is super comfortable and easy to play, the Grover tuners are incredible, the tuning is super stable, even when you bend the strings, and the parallelogram inlays on the neck and the Epiphone logo on the headstock are classic. I just can't say enough good things about it. My only heartburn is the unfinished maple wood on the body. I knew it was "stripped" like Lennon's, but I didn't realize it didn't have any varnish on it. It worries me how it will hold up, or what happens if I try to polish it. But I read that Lennon stripped the finish off his because Donovan told him it would improve the tone and let the guitar "breathe," so I'll honor that and keep mine natural too. McCartney, who owns a guitar or two, says his Casino is his favorite. I'll second that!

  • Awesomesauce.

    As reviewed by John Paul on 5/11/2011

    Okay, I'm a little biased, but this guitar is awesome. I've wanted it ever since I started to look at the Beatle's guitars and the like. I just love everything about it. Usually when I pick up a guitar for the first time, it feels awkward. It usually takes a few songs for me to feel sort of comfortable. When I picked up my Casino, I started to play 'Get Back' and I haven't felt so happy playing guitar in my whole life. It sounds great even when it's not plugged into an amp. Lots of sound. Unless if someone shoots me for it, I'm never parting from this guitar.

  • It is a beauty!!!

    As reviewed by Miguel on 4/13/2011

    I received it about 3 weeks ago. Still had the "new wood" smell. Right out of the box played great. First I was taken by the un-plugged sound, to the point I recorded a new instrumental this way. It took me a while to get a good sound through my Cyber Champ, but once I did... it was pure heaven!!! Out of my three "other ladies", this one is my favorite!! The best neck goes to my Strat with the Epi in second; the best sustain goes to my Les Paul with the Epi again in second; yet the overall "feeling" goes to this one. The sound this guitar makes is sublimed!!! The guitar is very light and very comfortable to play from any position: sitting down, standing up, sitting on the floor. The only negative thing I could mention, but it is due to the fact that this is my first ever hollow-body guitar, is that I get a lot of feedback from the pick-ups so I have to watch my position in relation with the amp. I am very happy with my selection for my first hollow-body guitar. It is not cheap, yet it is affordable and it is worth every penny!! It is a beauty!!
