Nitro finished Casinos

Recommended Posts

What modern sunburst Casinos have had a nitro finish? So far I know of the John Lennon Limited model and the Elitist "1965" Casino Vintage Outfit model. Are there any others?

As far as I know all made in Japan Elitist Epiphones have poly finish, not nitro.

Btw. I own the Elitist Casino, ES-335 and Les Paul Standard.

Those are the only two recent Casinos I'm aware of with a nitro finish.

 

Since 2008, a number of ES-330 models have been produced by Gibson within standard production runs, and they are now quite readily available. Although I have an Elitist Casino & it is a fine instrument, if forced to choose, I would sell the Casino before either of my 330s.

 

Happy hunting!

The more recently released Elitist version referred to here does indeed have a nitro finish.

 

I believe it has primarily been marketed in Japan, along with a new nitro finished Elitist Riviera.

 

Edit > Almost forgot: Epi also recently released the "Elitist 1964 Texan" with a nitro finish. This guitar is very similar to the Terada-made version of the "McCartney 1964 Texan" (part of McCartney's Adopt-A-Minefield fundraiser from 2005).

Yep..... "All" of the current Elitist Models are made in Japan, have Nitro finishes, use USA electronics and made with premium materials.. according to Epiphone.... [thumbup]

 

current Elitist models......

 

...and a considerably higher price tag..........
