Nice photo's but begs the question - just how much coin are that Texan and Casino worth, and who is the poor guy who's charged with caring for them? I hope he's well paid! [biggrin]

Just love the fact that he still regularly uses both of them.

 

Sooooo cool !!!

Here's a video from a few years ago, where Sir Paul "struts some of the original stuff":

 

Worth a look if you haven't seen it, and not a bad little song either LOL

Well, they are Epiphones, lol. I know that Brian Ray, who gigs with Paul, no longer gigs with his '57 Gibson goldtop LP, but rather a (very nice) reissue. That Gibbie's worth a ton!

 

(Well, OK, so are those Epiphones that Paul is still using....)

Just bought my Casino earlier this year. I was going to hold out for a Korean build until I could afford to get an Elitist model but, I found a great deal on a mint condition (which was actual better than new...still had all the stickers and that new guitar smell!), so I took a chance on her.

 

The legend is indeed true! This is one of the most enjoyable guitars in my collection. It fits me like a glove and has become a regular "go-to" guitar. She sounds great plugged or unplugged. I had recently purchased a few other guitars this year, all brand spankin' new, yet I still favor this Casino. I feel a tad guilty at times about that since the others are American made profe$$ional guitars, and here I go grabbin' the ol' China built Casino :P In fact, I no longer plan on getting the Elitist. I know they are just that much nicer but, I can't imagine bonding any more with it than I have this one...plus I can save a few thousand bucks, too!

 

I genuinely love my Casino and I just ordered an Epiphone Texan today, so let's hope the love keeps on keepin' on! Great pix and I agree, it's great to see him actually playing these guitars and not storing them in some warehouse or having them in a museum or some dreadful Hard Rock Cafe display! [scared]

Bought an Elitist Casino about 7 years ago, well, just because...added the Bigsby well, just because...LOL Agree. It is just a great guitar.

Also bought a Masterbilt AJ500M a few years ago. If you're as happy with your Texan as I am with the Masterbilt, you'll be a very happy guitar player, trust me.

Thanks for posting this video. I've seen it before, as well, but it really is a joy to watch, again. I know just what he means when he speaks of his Casino. I've other really amazing guitars, but the Casino just hits that sweet spot for me. Great to watch Ringo, too. He's a really great drummer.
