2003 Epiphone Casino Vintage Sunburst Near-Mint w/ 1 11/16" Nut, Case & Tags, Peerless


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2003 Epiphone Casino in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and hangtags. Crafted at the Peerless factory in Korea, this uncommon and discontinued iteration of the Casino stacks up well against the Elitist line.

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 only 5lbs 15oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar and dialed in for optimal action and intonation with 11-49 roundwound strings.
