Epiphone celebrates the 50th Anniversary of their famous Casino guitar with a limited reissue run of instruments. The original Casino guitar was first release and then discontinued in 1961 but, nonetheless, the guitar ended up being loved by wonderful artists from Paul McCartney to Keith Richards to Paul Weller and Dwight Yoakam. Today new artists like Miranda Lambert and Dave Haywood of Lady Antebellum also use the Casino.
The limited-edition 1961 Anniversary Casino will be produced in a limited quantity of only 1,961 instruments--each with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. These instruments will have all the original features not found on later models such as: the triangle metal logo badge on the headstock, dot fingerboard inlays, a blank two-ply, bullet truss rod cover, a tortoise-colored pick guard with foil "E", and black dog-ear P-90 pickups.
Other features include the correct burst patterns on front and back, a neck joint at the 16th fret (instead of the 17th), Wilkinson vintage-style tuners with small plastic buttons, and the historically accurate rectangle blue label inside the sound hole.
The Epiphone 1961 Anniversary Casino is available now and sells for $1,332 MSRP with trapeze tailpiece and $1,415 MSRP with Tremotone vibrato tailpiece. Check www.epiphone.com/casino/ for more.
