John Lennon 1966 Caricature, illustrated here behind stage at the Grugahalle, Essen, Germany on June 25th 1966, with his 1965 Epiphone Casino, age 26.
Two months later The Beatles would no longer play live shows, with their final show at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, California, on August 29th, 1966.
Lennon was an English singer, songwriter and peace activist who co-founded the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He and fellow member Paul McCartney formed a much-celebrated songwriting partnership. Along with George Harrison and Ringo Starr, the group achieved worldwide fame during the 1960s.
First issued in 1961, the Epiphone Casino Hollowbody Archtop Guitar was only a little older than the final incarnation of the Fab Four but it had already made an impact on Rock ‘n’ Roll in the hands of Keith Richards and Ray Davies. And though the Casino had powered smash hits like “Satisfaction” and “You Really Got Me,” after 1966, the hollowbody archtop would be forever associated with The Beatles thanks to its appearance on Revolver, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and promotional films for “Revolution,” “Hey Jude”, as well as band’s the final concert on the roof of Apple Records in London in 1969.
The Epiphone Casino has remained virtually unchanged since its first issue in 1961 and today, Epiphone offers the classic Casino as well as the Elitist Casino made at Epiphone’s factory in Japan. The Elitist is a virtual time machine to 1966 with a 5-ply Maple body with Spruce top bracing, Gibson P-90 pickups, and a traditional Vintage Sunburst or Natural finish.
