Modern Epiphone Casino Headstock

The Epiphone range of the 1960s closely followed the Gibson guitars of the same time; they were both made in the same fatory in Kalamazoo. The Casino corresponds to the Gibson ES330 having the same dimensions and construction, but with different headstock shape and tailpiece. The 1961 models came equipped with the Tremotone vibrato, which was optional by 1962.
