Epiphone Casino (Single Pickup) Sunburst 1963

Epiphone Casino (Single Pickup) Sunburst 1963

Featured Listing

Overview

The Epiphone Casino was one of the main thinline hollowbodies produced by Epiphone following the brand's acquisition by Gibson in 1957. Unlike a Gibson ES-335 or an Epiphone Sheraton, the Casino is a full hollowbody and lacks a wood centerblock running through the middle of the body. The Casino’s close association with the Beatles has greatly enhanced its reputation and collectability. Guitars with the optional tremolo bridge are more sought-after than those with regular trapezoid bridges. 

Years of Production: 1961 - 1970, 1995 - present

Unique to this Year: Split parallelogram inlays introduced in mid-'62. Chrome pickup covers introduced.

Body Style: Double cutaway thinbody archtop, full hollowbody

Wood Composition: 5-ply laminate maple and birch body

Design Elements:  Two single-coil P90 pickups (also available with one pickup), trapeze tailpiece or optional tremolo tailpiece, 16-inch wide, tune-o-matic bridge, single bound

Finish Specifications: Sunburst was a standard finish for '60s Casinos. 

Notable Players: John Lennon, George Harrison, Keith Richards, Noel Gallagher
