John Lennon's use of his Epiphone Casino on Hey Jude B-side Revolution was one of his finest moments on the electric guitar.

This is according to music writer Ted Drozdowski, who told the Gibson website that the song's combination of politics and distortion made it one of the defining moments in rock 'n' roll history.

"This tune features one of the nastiest tones to ever emerge from an Epiphone Casino, from the staccato introduction to the raging string bends at the song's climax," Mr Drozdowski said.

Other brilliant Lennon moments on the electric guitar were said to include his performances on Come Together, Day Tripper and Working Class Hero.

Earlier this year, Mr Drozdowski explained how Lennon had helped to make the Epiphone Casino guitar famous by using it on every Beatles album after the recording of Rubber Soul, when Paul McCartney had brought one of the electric guitars into the studio.
