Epiphone / E-230 T Casino / 1965 / Royal Tan / Guitar For Sale

Beautiful early 1965, transitional  Epiphone Casino E-230t anyone?

As with the ES-330Ts, single pickup examples of the Casino are rare! This is a stunner, there is no doubt. Classic royal tan finish that's instantly recognisable, setting it apart from its Gibson cousin. There are no real signs of any damage anywhere, the odd minor knock but nothing noticeable. The colour has faded a little but again this is not too extensive. 

The neck is in superb condition with almost no wear, the original frets have plenty of life left in them. The headstock is in good shape with a few minor chips and best part of all. This has a 42mm nut width which is a transitional feature on these guitars.

The hardware shows some discoloration and some very slight pitting. The plastics are in great shape though the pickguard does droop slightly. The tuners are slightly later, nickel double line Kluson.

Electrically everything is original and works and sounds a real treat. Pots date 65 (week obscured by solder) and week 36 of 64 which puts this guitar at the beginning of 1965

The guitar comes with its correct grey hardshell case with blue lining.

Acoustically this guitar has a pleasantly warm tone that certainly tips the hat to Gibson’s archtop heritage. Plugged in the guitar runs the gamut from warm neck pickup to a more honky, biting bridge pickup tone.

These Casinos have a worthy place in the electric guitar cannon and this fine example would make a fanatic addition to any collection.
