Re: Casino Elitist / John Lennon / ES 330 I will recomend a CS guitar that I love and that remind me of my Casinos and ES330: - Johnny A signature guitar.The guitar is all hollow and if you love P90 you can change the Classics 57 for a set of 94's, Gibson P90 alike in humbuker shape.


Enjoy!

casino john lennon casino john lennon Figure 1 – The John Lennon 1965 Casino In the 1960s Epiphone Casinos were ‘in’. And John Lennon wasn’t the only Beatles to own one. In fact Paul McCartney and George Harrison both had Casinos, as did Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones.

John Lennon with his Epiphone Casino in December, 1968, on the set of “Rock ‘n’ Roll Circus.” Lennon photo: Andrew Maclear/Redferns. Of all the guitars the Beatles made famous, the only one that John, Paul and George had in common was the Epiphone Casino. Each owned a Casino and used it for.

I owned a John Lennon signature Casino for a while but found that the neck was slightly too small for my comfort. The IBJL (“Inspired By” John Lennon) Casino actually has a neck very much like my ES-330; a nice rounded old-style Gibson shape, very comfy. It features USA-made Gibson P-90s, laminated maple/ birch body with laminated maple top.

Please help me - I´m in need for suggestions.
Does anyone have any experience with either the Elitist Casino vs John Lennon and the Gibson ES330 vs.
Unfortunately I couldn´t find anything in the net making a comparision.
I´d guess the Elitist series to be my favourite now.
Would you consider the ES330 and John Lennon so much different better to justify the price difference?
What´s about the Korean Casino - is it only crap?
Absolutely beautiful guitar, both in looks and in tone.
The workmanship is flawless, the feel is perfect, and of course you can never go wrong with a good set of P-90s and the woodiness of a full hollow body.
This guitar has the most beautiful rosewood fretboard of any guitar I own.
I actually searched long and hard for an Elitist model because they are cheaper, but man they are tought to find.
Really, the only difference between the Elitist model and the Lennon model is the nitro finish versus poly, and final assembly in the US versus Japan.
Is this worth an extra 5 or 6 hundred bucks?
Probably not to some folks, but I love the smell and feel of nitro, I love the way it ages and the way it lets the guitar breathe.
And given that these two guitars came off the same assembly line at the same factory for the most part, I chose the one that I believe will ultimately be the more collectable on down the road a few years.
Altogether, it was money well spent in my opinion.
I bought it for my son, but I play it as much as he does.
I have arthritis in my shoulders and it hurts to sling a Lester over my shoulder for long.
The Casino weighs nothing compared to my Les Paul Custom.
Oh, and yes, while I can't speak for others here, I played half a dozen or more Korean made Casinos during my search and I can honestly say, at least for the ones I played, they were crap.
Muddy tone, scratchy swithes, shoddy workmanship, and that gawdawful bulletproof poly coating.
I mean really, they want like what 600 bucks or so for one of these things.
For that price or only slightly more, be patient and buy a used Elitist model, or just go for broke and get a Lennon model.
Good luck in your search.

Several years ago I had a Korean Epi Casino, same finish as John Lennons after he had it stripped.
It looked good sitting on a stand, but for playing I could never bond with it and sold it quickly.
I then found an Epi 1965 JL that was just an excellent guitar.
But, I have a pin in my right shoulder and I found that when I played the Casino for a long period of time, my shoulder really hurt.

Voodoovox, Not making fun of your injury or anything, but I got a giggle out of re-reading both our responses to this thread.
We both have shoulder troubles and both came to exact opposite conclusions on the Casino's effect on our shoulders.
The light weight helps me be able to play longer without shoulder pain, but the large size makes it more difficult for you.
Each to his own I guess.
And I completely agree with your statement about the Korean made Casinos.
They sure look pretty sitting on a stand.
Great decorations for a living room, or to have as a spare when nephews come to visit.
But a far cry from the JL model.
It's almost a shame to give them both the name Casino.
Here's to guitar players with bad shoulders.
I like my Korean Casino.
OK, I admit I did put in new pots and a Gibson p-90 in the bridge, and yeah it's poly, but it has the sweetest playing neck of any of my guitars, Fenders and Gibson included.
Pretty easy choice: if you've got several kilobucks to spend on a Casino, get a Lennon; if you only have one kilobuck and change go Elitist; if your link is in the sub-kilobuck range go Korean.
Still a Casino, still gots that unique hollowbody P-90 sound, and you can amuse yourself by upgrading it periodically!

You don't need a "bag head", ccbryan.

If your Casino rings true for you, you need not ever be ashamed of it.
I meant no disrespect to anyone's guitars when I made my assessment.
I came to my biased opinion after trying several Korean-made Epi Casinos that just didn't do it for me, but that doesn't mean they're all bad, and like you pointed click, the price is right.
I may have just come across a bad lot when I did the test driving.
As long as the guitar makes music, that's all that lennon casino forum matters.
And I totally agree with your comments about the neck.
You made a good point.
Casinos are very playable guitars because of the visit web page />Mine is so thin I sometimes wonder how they ever read more enough wood to get a truss rod inside it, but man it feels pretty good once you get over the nervousness of thinking it might snap in your hands if you hold a bar chord too tightly.
I really like it.
Posts 4,651 How close is a Gibson ES-330 to an Epi Casino?
BryanSomeone more expert than myself should probably chime in on this, but I believe they are pretty much the same thing except headstock logo and of course the Epi has a white pickguard, which I find very sexy.
Both came in long and short neck models, single and double pup models, etc.
I've got a Lennon Casino and find it to be one of the best-made, best-playing guitars I've handled.
The main difference between these and the Elite series is poly versus lacquer.
That's not a minor difference in sound, however - the lacquer allows more resonance from the wood.
In fact, my Lennon Casino is SO resonant that it's impossible to play with a gainy tone live in a band setting in a small rehearsal room without uncontrollable feedback.
I love the fact that I can get tuneful feedback on any note played on any fret, but it honks and hoots so much when not playing that it's monte casino menu real handful.
Though I prefer the sound of the P-90's for what I do, I've had to go to a 335 to be able to play with my band.
My Casino is the most resonant guitar I've been exposed to, and is more resonant than the one Elite I've handled Don Butler's.
I'm not clear if mine is a special case, but be aware of it.
If you're recording under controlled circumstances, or playing pretty clean, or playing on big stages, it might not be an issue.

You said it much better than I could have.
The JL models are damn fine guitars, they grow on you and you don't ever want to put them down, but you have to be careful not to let the feedback get out of control.

There is no such thing as a long vs.
They're all the same scale lenght but meet the body at different points.

Troels is exactly right.
By long neck and short neck I was speaking only of the actual chunk of mahogany used to make the neck, not the scale length.
Even though the scale length remains the same in all models, the actual piece of wood used to make the neck is longer in the long neck model than it is in the short neck model.

If your Casino rings true for you, you need not ever be ashamed of it.
I meant no disrespect to anyone's guitars when I made my assessment.
I will admit that I've never encountered a Lennon or Elitist Casino, so my judgement of the Korean is on an absolute, not relative scale.
I know I lost a lot of my respect for my Korean Sheraton when I got a 335!
The guitar is all hollow and if you love P90 you can change the Classics 57 for a set of 94's, Gibson P90 alike in humbuker shape.
The JA is a great instrument, not cheap but worth of purchasing.
The look is a down size Barney Kessel in a thinline guitar.
It's carved maple and mahogony with 25.
The longer scale give more punch to the guitar's sound.
I have an elite casino that i purchased at a local guitar shop.
Thanks for your inputs, very helpful.
There is an auction for a 69 ES330TD on ebay I can´t create the link.
It seems interesting but I feel a little bit insecure because what I can see from the pictures it looks so amazingly flawless so that I´m suspicious if something´s wrong with it.
Is anybody here who feels like looking at the photos and sharing his opinion?
Thank you --- A.
Here are a few I found for sale right now.
I have no financial interest in any of these, and am not personally acquainted with any of the sellers.
But some of these are pretty sweet.
One is a John Lennon model, but to me this one is overpriced.
They'll fix you up right.
These are fun guitars.
Hollow body with P-90s.
What could be better?
I had an ES 330 many years ago and it was a fantastic guitar.
Very mellow and resonant.
The bridge P90 was hot as well but the two together were excellent.
In the long run an ES 330 will appreciate in value and the Epi Casino reissues will take MANY years to gain the favor of serious collectors.
That is not to imply that the Epi RI's are bad guitars; some are, some are not.
If you can afford 900 casino ES 330 go for it.
You won't be sorry.

As the owner of an Epi JL Casino, I second this sentiment.
If you are looking for collectability, buy the Gibson ES-330.
Just in the past year prices have risen something like 50% and seem to keep going up.
If you just want to play it and not worry too much about dings, nicks, or future value, get the Epi, either Korean made or Elitist.
If you want a bit of both collectability and playability and have a longer time horizon to wait on price appreciation, get the Epi JL Casino.
I was just playing mine a few minutes ago and gotta say, I really like this guitar.
It just feels so natural in my hands, almost as if it were custom built just for me.
And usually, I prefer thicker necks, but this thing just feels and plays great.
Anyway, whatever you choose, good luck and enjoy.

Revolutionary - John Lennon Limited Edition Casinos In November 1997, a team from Epiphone visited The Dakota in New York to examine John's Casino. During the meticulous examination, countless measurements were taken, body tracings were done and all components of the guitar were photographed.

I came to my biased opinion after trying several Korean-made Epi Casinos that just didn't do it for me, but that doesn't mean they're all bad, and like you pointed out, the price is right.
I may have just come across a bad lot when I did the test driving.
As long as the guitar makes music, that's all that really matters.
And I totally agree with your comments about the neck.
You made a good point.
Casinos are very playable guitars because of the necks.
Mine is so thin I sometimes wonder how they ever had enough wood to get a truss rod inside it, but man it feels pretty good once you get over the nervousness of thinking it might snap in your hands if you hold a bar chord too tightly.
I really like it.

There is an auction for a 69 ES330TD on ebay I can´t create the link.
It seems interesting but I feel a little bit insecure because what I can see from the pictures it looks so amazingly flawless so that I´m suspicious if something´s wrong with it.
Is anybody here who feels like looking at the photos and sharing his opinion?
Thank you --- A.
Here are a few I found for sale right now.
I have no financial interest in any of these, and am not personally acquainted with any of the sellers.

As the owner of an Epi JL Casino, I second this sentiment.
If you are looking for collectability, buy the Gibson ES-330.
Just in the past year prices have risen something like 50% and seem to keep going up.
If you just want to play it and not worry too much about dings, nicks, or future value, get the Epi, either Korean made or Elitist.
If you want a bit of both collectability and playability and have a longer time horizon to wait on price appreciation, get the Epi JL Casino.
I was just playing mine a few minutes ago and gotta say, I really like this guitar.
It just feels so natural in my hands, almost as if it were custom built just for me.
And usually, I prefer thicker necks, but this thing just feels and plays great.
Anyway, whatever you choose, good luck and enjoy.

Well after Lennon caked on layers of hand painted flower power over the original Vintage burst the story goes he decided less finish would make it sound better and hte resultant Revolution Casino was reborn. Oddly, I have read and even heard Lennon complain on video of a session about the guitar.

Trying to figure out what guitar John is playing on the Rooftop in 'Let It Be' film. Doesn't look like a Gretsch. Trying to finish a custom Lennon action figure and want to be as close as possible to the guitar that he plays in that concert.

On its way from Tennessee to Iowa! Its an inspired by Lennon, and I’ve been looking for a nicer Casino and this one popped up for a good price. I don’t care so much that it’s an artist guitar, and I don’t like to buy without playing, but with the price and original hard case I can easily turn my money if I don’t bond with it.

Please help me - I´m in need for suggestions.
Does anyone have any experience with either the Elitist Casino vs John Lennon and the Gibson ES330 vs.
Unfortunately I couldn´t find anything in the net making a comparision.
I´d guess the Elitist series to be my favourite now.
Would you consider the ES330 and John Lennon so much different better to justify the price difference?
What´s about the Korean Casino - is it only crap?
Absolutely beautiful guitar, both in looks and in tone.
The workmanship is flawless, the feel is perfect, and of course you can never go wrong with a good set of P-90s and the woodiness of a full hollow body.
This guitar has the most beautiful rosewood fretboard of any guitar I own.
I actually searched long and hard for an Elitist model because they are cheaper, but man they are tought to find.
Really, the only difference between the Elitist model and the Lennon model is the nitro finish versus poly, and final assembly in the US versus Japan.
Is this worth an extra 5 or 6 hundred bucks?
Probably not to some folks, but I love the smell and feel of nitro, I love the way it ages and the way it lets the guitar breathe.
And given that these two guitars came off the same assembly line at the same factory for the most part, I chose the one that I believe will ultimately be lennon casino forum more collectable on down the road a few years.
Altogether, it was money well spent in my opinion.
I bought it for my son, but I play it as much as he does.
I have arthritis in my shoulders and it hurts to sling a Lester over my shoulder for long.
The Casino weighs nothing compared to my Les Paul Custom.
Oh, and yes, while I can't speak for others here, I played half a dozen or more Korean made Casinos during my search and I can honestly say, at least for the ones I played, they were crap.
Muddy tone, scratchy swithes, shoddy workmanship, and that gawdawful bulletproof poly coating.
I mean really, they want like what 600 bucks or so for one of these things.
For that price or only slightly more, be patient and buy a used Elitist model, or just go for broke and get a Lennon model.
Good luck in your search.

Several years ago I had a Korean Epi Casino, same finish as John Lennons after he had it stripped.
It looked good sitting on a stand, but for playing I could never bond with it and sold it quickly.
I then found an Epi 1965 JL that was just an excellent guitar.
But, I have a pin in my right shoulder and I found that when I played the Casino for a long period of time, my shoulder really hurt.

Voodoovox, Not making fun of your injury or anything, but I got a giggle out of re-reading both our responses to this thread.
We both have shoulder troubles and both came to exact opposite conclusions on the Casino's effect on our shoulders.
The light weight helps me be able to play longer without shoulder pain, but the large size makes it more difficult for you.
Each to his own I guess.
And I completely agree with your statement about the Korean made Casinos.
They sure look pretty sitting on a stand.
Great decorations for a living room, or to have as a spare when nephews come to visit.
But a far cry from the JL model.
It's almost a shame to give them both the name Casino.
Here's to guitar players with bad shoulders.
I like my Korean Casino.
OK, I admit I did put in new pots and a Gibson p-90 in the bridge, and yeah it's poly, but it has the sweetest playing neck of any of my guitars, Fenders and Gibson included.
Pretty easy choice: if you've got several kilobucks to spend on a Casino, get a Lennon; if you only have one kilobuck and change go Elitist; if your budget is in the sub-kilobuck range go Korean.
Still a Casino, still gots that unique hollowbody P-90 sound, and you can amuse yourself by upgrading it periodically!

If you want a bit of both collectability and playability and have a longer time horizon to wait on price appreciation, get the Epi JL Casino.
I was just playing mine a few minutes ago and gotta say, I really like this guitar.
It just feels so natural in my hands, almost as if it were custom built just for me.
And usually, I prefer thicker necks, but this thing just feels and plays great.
Anyway, whatever you choose, good luck and enjoy.

Keen to redress the balance for those with smaller pockets, Epiphone has launched the new Indonesian-made 'Inspired By' John Lennon Casino - £1,200 cheaper than the former USA model and £400 more expensive than the standard Chinese-made Casino. "The key to the Beatles tone is in the volume control."

Please help me - I´m in need for suggestions.
Does anyone have any experience with either the Elitist Casino vs John Lennon and the Gibson ES330 vs.
Unfortunately I couldn´t find anything in the net making a comparision.
I´d guess the Elitist series to be my favourite now.
Would you consider the ES330 and John Lennon so much different better to justify the price difference?
Absolutely beautiful guitar, both in looks and in tone.
The workmanship is flawless, the feel is perfect, and of course you can never go wrong with a good set of P-90s and the woodiness check this out a full hollow body.
This guitar has the most beautiful rosewood fretboard of any guitar I own.
I actually searched long and hard for an Elitist model because they are cheaper, but man they are tought to find.
Really, the only difference between the Elitist model and the Lennon model is the nitro finish versus poly, and final assembly in the US versus Japan.
Is this worth an extra 5 or lennon casino forum hundred bucks?
Probably not to some folks, but I love the smell and feel of nitro, I love the way it ages and the way it lets the guitar breathe.
And given that these two guitars came off the same assembly line at the same factory for the most part, I chose the one that I believe will ultimately be the more collectable on down the road a few years.
Altogether, it was money well spent in my opinion.
I bought it for my son, but I play it as much as he does.
I have arthritis in my shoulders and it hurts to sling a Lester over my shoulder for long.
The Casino weighs nothing compared to my Les Paul Custom.
Oh, and yes, while I can't speak for others here, I played half a dozen or more Korean made Casinos during my search and I can honestly say, at least for the ones I played, they were crap.
Muddy tone, scratchy swithes, shoddy workmanship, and that gawdawful bulletproof poly coating.
I mean really, they want like what 600 bucks or so for one of these things.
For that price or only slightly more, be patient and buy a used Elitist model, or just go for broke and get a Lennon model.
Good luck in your search.

Several years ago I had a Korean Epi Casino, same finish as John Lennons after he had it stripped.
It looked good sitting on a stand, but for playing I could never bond with it and sold it quickly.
I then found an Epi 1965 JL that was just an excellent guitar.
But, I have a pin in my right shoulder and I found that when I played the Casino for a long period of time, my shoulder really hurt.

Voodoovox, Just click for source making fun of your injury or anything, but I got a giggle out of re-reading both our responses to this thread.
We both have shoulder troubles and both came to exact opposite conclusions on the Casino's effect on our shoulders.
The light weight helps me be able to play longer without shoulder pain, but the large size makes it more difficult for you.
Each to his own I guess.
And I completely agree with your statement about the Korean made Casinos.
They sure look pretty article source on a stand.
Great decorations for a living room, or to have as a spare when nephews come to visit.
But a far cry from the JL model.
It's almost a shame to give them both the name Casino.
Here's to guitar players with bad shoulders.
I like my Korean Casino.
OK, I admit I did put in new pots and a Gibson p-90 in the bridge, and yeah it's poly, but it has the sweetest playing neck of any of my guitars, Fenders and Gibson included.
Pretty easy choice: if you've got several kilobucks to spend on a Casino, get a Lennon; if you only have one kilobuck and change go Elitist; if your budget is in the sub-kilobuck range go Korean.
Still a Casino, still gots that unique hollowbody P-90 sound, and you can amuse yourself by upgrading it periodically!

Threedogdad I cracked a smile reading you post.
The weight of a LP does not bother me at all.
Thank goodness I don't have arthritis and a pin in my shoulder.

You don't need a "bag head", ccbryan.
Each to his own.
If your Casino rings true for you, you need not ever be ashamed of it.
I meant no disrespect to anyone's guitars when I made my assessment.
I came to my biased opinion after trying several Korean-made Epi Casinos that just didn't do it for me, but that doesn't mean they're all bad, and like you pointed out, the price is right.
I may have just come across a bad lot when I did the test driving.
As long as the guitar makes music, that's all that really matters.
And I totally agree with your comments about the neck.
You made a good point.
Casinos are very playable guitars because of the necks.
Mine is so thin I sometimes wonder how they ever had enough wood to get a truss rod inside it, but man it feels pretty good once you get over the nervousness of thinking it might snap in your hands if you hold a bar chord too tightly.
I really like it.
Posts 4,651 How close is a Gibson ES-330 to an Epi Casino?
BryanSomeone more expert than myself should probably chime in on this, but I believe they are pretty much the same thing except headstock logo and of course the Epi has a white pickguard, which I find very sexy.
Both came in long and short neck models, single and double pup models, etc.
I've got a Lennon Casino and find it to be one of the best-made, best-playing guitars I've handled.
The main difference between these and the Elite series is poly versus lacquer.
That's not a minor difference in sound, however - the lacquer allows more resonance from the wood.
In fact, my Lennon Casino is SO resonant that it's impossible to play with a gainy tone live in a band setting in a small rehearsal room without uncontrollable feedback.
I love the fact that I can get tuneful feedback on any note played on any fret, but it honks and hoots so much when not playing that it's a real handful.
Though I prefer the sound of the P-90's for what I do, I've had to go to a 335 to be able to play with my band.
My Casino is the most resonant guitar I've been exposed to, and is more resonant than the one Elite I've handled Don Butler's.
I'm not clear if mine is a special case, but be aware of it.
If you're recording under controlled circumstances, or playing pretty clean, or playing on big stages, it might not be an issue.

You said it much better than I could have.
The JL models are damn fine guitars, they grow on you and you don't ever want to put them down, but you have to be careful not to let the feedback get out of check this out />Someone more expert than myself should probably chime in on this, but I believe they are pretty much the same thing except headstock logo and of course the Epi has a white pickguard, which I find very sexy.

There is no such thing as a long vs.
They're all the same scale lenght but meet the body at different points.

Troels is exactly right.
By long neck and short neck I was speaking only of the actual chunk of mahogany used to make the neck, not the scale length.
Even though the scale length remains the same in all models, the actual piece of wood used to make the neck is longer in the long neck model than it is in the short neck model.
A long-necker will not fit into a short necker's case.

I meant no disrespect to anyone's guitars when I made my assessment.
I will admit that I've never encountered a Lennon or Elitist Casino, so my judgement of the Korean is on an absolute, not relative scale.
I know I lost a lot of my respect for my Borgata casino parent company Sheraton when I got a 335!
The guitar is all hollow and if you love P90 you can change the Classics 57 for a set of 94's, Gibson P90 alike in humbuker shape.
The JA is a great instrument, not cheap but worth of purchasing.
The look is a down size Barney Kessel in a https://festes.ru/casino/loc-de-munca-casino-iasi-asistent-medical.html guitar.
It's lennon casino forum maple and mahogony with 25.
The longer visit web page give more punch to the guitar's sound.
I have an elite casino that i purchased at a local guitar shop.
Thanks for your inputs, very helpful.
There is an auction for a 69 ES330TD on ebay I can´t create the link.
It seems interesting but I feel a little bit insecure because what I can see from the pictures it looks so amazingly flawless lennon casino forum that I´m suspicious if something´s wrong with it.
Is anybody here who feels like looking at the photos and sharing his opinion?
Thank you --- A.
Here are a few I found for sale right now.
I have no financial interest in any of these, and am not personally acquainted with any of the sellers.
But some of these are pretty sweet.
One is a John Lennon model, lennon casino forum to me this one is overpriced.
They'll fix you up right.
These are fun guitars.
Hollow body with P-90s.
What could be better?
I had an ES 330 many years ago and it was a fantastic guitar.
Very mellow and resonant.
The bridge P90 was hot as well but the two together were excellent.
In the long run an ES 330 will appreciate in value and the Epi Casino reissues will take MANY years to gain the favor of serious collectors.
That is not to imply that the Epi RI's are bad guitars; some are, some are not.
If you can afford the ES 330 go for it.
You won't be sorry.

As the owner of an Epi JL Casino, I second this sentiment.
If you are looking for collectability, buy the Gibson ES-330.
Just in the past year prices have risen something like 50% and seem to keep going up.
If you just want to play it and not worry too much about dings, nicks, or future value, get the Epi, either Korean made or Elitist.
