Overview

A full hollowbody with P-90s generates the chimey tones from Revolver to Let it Be.

You'll love the lightweight and comfortable neck of the Epiphone Elitist 1965 Casino. The Elite Series are instruments that approach custom shop perfection. Crafted in Japan with premium woods, fitted with American pickups and circuitry--even American-made toggle switches and Grover tuners--they're made at a special factory devoted to their manufacture where they receive a high degree of hands-on luthier attention. You'll find the Elite 1965 Casino true to the original made famous by The Beatles. A finely crafted, great-sounding, and easy-playing instrument that beautifully blurs the line between Epiphone and Gibson. Includes hardshell case.
