1998 Epiphone Casino Hollowbody Electric Guitar Sunburst w/ Case, Peerless

$1,549.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1998 Epiphone Casino in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case. Crafted at the Peerless factory in Korea, this uncommon and discontinued iteration of the Casino stacks up well against the Elitist line.

This guitar's fully hollow all-maple body has an articulate and airy tone, capturing both the clear note attack of maple as a tonewood and the warmth of the hollow construction. The P-90 pickups are wound to vintage spec with plenty of midrange bark, delivering a glassy, percussive quality. Whether you seek dynamic cleans or thick overdrive, these pickups can produce either with ease. Featherweight at 6lbs 1oz, this Casino has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
