Used And Vintage Electric Guitars

You'll love the lightweight and comfortable neck of the Epiphone Elitist 1965 Casino. The Elite Series are instruments that approach custom shop perfection.  This guitar was crafted in Japan with premium woods, beautiful Sunburst finish, fitted with upgraded Lindy Fralin P90s (includes the original American pickups in case) and circuitry (even American-made toggle switches and Grover tuners), it's a hell of a guitar.  Made at a special factory devoted to their manufacturing where they receive a high degree of hands-on luthier attention, it's a high quality build.

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.

This one is in excellent condition - the body looks great, with the finish very clean with just a bit of natural player wear/aging, and the neck is in great shape.  There is a chip on the headstock (see photos), but other than that, it's primo.  The original hardshell case is included, as are the original pickups.  The guitar has been vetted and setup to play perfectly by the techs in our shop.

Every time we get an Elitist Casino in, it goes fast, so if you're looking, don't let this one slip by!
