John Lennon the Beatles Revolution Casino for Sale

John Lennon, George Harrison and Paul McCartney each purchased a sunburst Casino like our exact replica of John's, the John Lennon '1965' Casino, with all the appointments and hardware it originally came with, playing them on tour and on famous recordings. Later John stripped the finish on his, changed the tuners and made even more music history with the same guitar that we have replicated again in the John Lennon 'Revolution' Casino. It's just like John's in every way, even down to the marks from the original tuners! A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each will be donated to The BMI Foundation, Inc. for the John Lennon Scholarship Fund which supports music education.

The Casino Story

For the Epiphone Company of 1961, the Casino was a small breakthrough. After the merger with Gibson in 1957, Epiphone no longer made jazz archtops. A new era of music had arrived. The introduction of the Casino was a modern design that announced that Epiphone’s unique history would continue separate from Gibson’s. Though from a distance the Casino had the look of an ES-335, the Casino was a true hollowbody giving players a clear, ringing tone that could be pushed into overdrive when needed. It was an ideal guitar for stage and studio and can be heard on many landmark recordings including The Beatles’ Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds.

Maybe it’s purely coincidental that at the same time that the Casino was in its planning stages at Epiphone headquarters in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the Beatles were starting out, too. By 1964, the Beatles were stars and when Paul McCartney went shopping for a new guitar that could feed back, he reached for a Casino. John Lennon and George Harrison soon bought their own and used their Casinos on stage and at Abbey Road throughout the band’s career.

Epiphone has made a name for itself by producing some of the greatest and most innovative musical instruments for over 135 years. While models such as Masterbilts, Broadways, Wilshires, Coronets, Emperors and Texans are some of Epiphone's most memorable models, the Casino is arguably our most famous due to its close association with The Beatles.
