I have an "inspired by John Lennon" Casino in 'burst and it's really quite amazing. I've had it for a little over a year. It's got genuine Gibson dogear p90s, which apparently sets it apart from the pure Epiphone version (I've never played Epi p90s, so I can't say). It looks so pretty and plays so easy -- comfortable neck, the 24.75" scale, etc. Now, I'm still pretty young when it comes to trying out lots of different guitars. I've played maybe 15-20 different electric guitars in my time. But man this guitar just friggin' goes for it. Yeah, it's cool with those jangly early Beatles songs. But it loves fat jazz tones with something like Autumn Leaves, and it can scream like the dickins with some hard rock like vintage Foo Fighters, The Who, etc. In fact, this guitar LOVES Foo Fighters! (I love them, too.) Anybody? What's not to love about these things? Did I get lucky?
