  • Regular price £5,495.00


1962 Epiphone Casino E230TD, Sunburst finish in fair/good condition with the original case. It has the wide nut, two P-90 pickups with black covers and nickel hardware. Serial: 99328. Weight: 6.4lbs. Nut width: 42.8 mm. Depth at 1st fret: 20 mm.

There are screw holes from a previously fitted bigsby (most are not visible becasue they are covered by the Epiphone vibrato) and 2 holes on the tip of the upper horn, presumably from someone re-positioning the strap button. One of the holes has been filled with a perloid dot and the other with some kind of filler. There are two circular indentations around the heel. The finish on the body is in otherwise good shape with only a few  small scuffs/dings. The finish on the back of the neck has numerous small dings. The silver reflector caps on the control knobs are missing and someone has used a silver pen to, at least in part, mimic the look. The knobs themselves are original. The frets are on the low side but do have life left in them for maybe one more fret dress before needing a re-fret. All hardware & electronics are in excellent working order. The binding is all intact. The headstock has a few scuffs and chips around the edges. There is lacquer checking throughout the finish. There are no breaks and everything remains structurally sound. 

This guitar has been fully checked over & set up in our workshop with a fresh set of strings and is an all-round excellent sounding and playing guitar. Set up with a low action allowing for very smooth movement around the fretboard. It has a big rich tone both plugged in and acoustically. 

The Casino E230TD was introduced by Gibson in 1961 and is the equivalent of the ES-330. It has the same pick-up configuration and hollow body construction. The main differences being the white pickguard, and headstock design. 

In 1964 Paul McCartney went shopping for a new guitar that could give him the overdriven blues sound of artists like Otis Rush, he reached for a Casino. (his had the shorter headstock) John Lennon and George Harrison soon bought their own and used their Casinos on stage and at Abbey Road throughout the band’s career. Carl Wilson of the Beach Boys, Paul Weller of the Jam, and Noel Gallagher of Oasis are just a few of the players who made great records with Casinos.
