Vintage Bench Test: 1961 Epiphone E230TD Casino
Some of the biggest names in pop history have played Epiphone Casinos, but this is one of the rarest of them all. Chris Vinnicombe plugs in…
The thinline, hollowbody Epiphone Casino was introduced in 1961, two years after its close cousin, the Gibson ES-330. Though the Casino wouldn’t go on to become as big a seller as the ES-330 (production of which peaked at 4,898 in 1967, versus the Casino’s 1,814), Epiphone shipping records indicate that in its year of introduction, the company shipped a healthy 110 E230T single-pickup, 176 E230TD twin-pickup and 153 E230TDV twin-pickup models equipped with the company’s Tremotone vibrato tailpiece.The post Vintage Bench Test: 1961 Epiphone E230TD Casino appeared first on Guitar & Bass.
