Guitar Sharing Experience (Epiphone Casino VS Gretsch Electromatic)
So I'm in a predicament..

Today I went with my dad just to try out some guitars and see which ones I liked. Basically I tried a Gretsch Electromatic and an Epiphone Casino.

Now I have a choice, the Electromatic for $750 or the Casino for $650.

When I went and tried them I absolutely LOVED the Beatles tone the electro produced.
The way the neck felt was just gorgeous. So this produced basically the early beatles sound I love.

Now with the Casino , I didn't get a chance to plug it into an amp but from what i've heard on youtube and seen, it's got a great sound and it too produces a Beatles sound but late beatles. Does anyone know if it can sound like the early beatles stuff too?

So what would be a good choice? And what are some pros and cons of each guitar?

That link you provided basically said "Well...both guitars are ok. Make your own decision with no help from me."

Harrison played a Gretsch Country Gentleman on some really early Beatles stuff, not the Electromatic. The Epiphone Casino is on a ton of early Beatles recordings. Whichever guitar you buy, pick up a Vox amp to play through. You can pick up a Vox AC30 used for pretty cheap these days. Nice jangly tones for days.
