Hey there - if you're looking for John's guitar it is an Epiphone Casino - not a Gibson Casino.
The Epiphone Dot is the Epiphone version of the Gibson 335.
The main difference is the pickups. The Dot has humbuckers- the Casino has P-90's.
You can get the Epiphone Casino in the blonde version or the sunburst original version. If you get the blonde version take off the pickguard and it will look like John's. Whethter it will sound like John has more to do with your fingers!
I think you can see one at this link:
There are actually two Epiphone Lennon-branded Casinos.
http://www.epiphone.com/defaul.....ctionID=17 - this is a cheaper 'inspired by' version which isn't an exact replica, but supposedly sounds and plays pretty good. They're nice looking guitars, though I've never tried one.

The Epiphone Casino is a full-hollow guitar, the Epiphone Dot, as the Gibson 335, is a semi-hollow guitar (it have a block of wood inside, fulling the centre of the body, from neck to bottom).
The signature John Lennon Signature comes in two colours: sunburst (red-orange-yellow) and natural.
I think there isn't a left-handed version of the Casino, but I have a left-handed Dot. I'm so happy with her, because she looks so good and sounds better!
Anyway, DoctorRobert, you have to play Yer Blues!

I myself have a rather weathered 1957 (???) Gibson Les Paul Goldtop. It's pretty worn. I'm thinking about replacing the body colour with a cherry sunburst. Looks pretty good.
Was that that goldish one you were playing at the concert last night? Cause that was a cool one

Don't do anything to it. Scratches don't affect the value as much as having the finish changed - you could actually lower the value of the guitar by having cosmetic work repaired.
Things like neck alignment, action, set-up - those things are worth doing - but I don't recommend any cosmetci work.
Post a picture of it or send it to my PM if you want more info. I've been playing guitar since 1964.

My own guitar's very much in the 335/Casino style. An Alcivar, Japanese, to be precise. Beautiful wood-grain finish. Always sounded fine to me, not that I was ever good enough for it to make much difference.
I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney
