2000 Epiphone Casino Hollowbody Guitar Natural, Near-Mint w/ 1 11/16" Nut & Case, Peerless

$1,699.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2000 Epiphone Casino in near-mint, 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 is a visually unique example with notably dynamic grain in the maple body and broad quilt figuring on both the top and back.

Notable for its full 1 11/16" nut width (a feature surprisingly uncommon on many Casino reissues), 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. The guitar is featherweight at 6lbs 1oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with low action, accurate intonation and fresh 10-46 strings.

Cosmetic wear on the gloss Natural finish is limited to an area of light buckle rash central to the lower bout on the back, and just a scant few faint scratches in the clear coat on the body as a whole. The smooth gloss finish on the neck profile is immaculate.
