Up for sale, a 2006 Epiphone Casino in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, finished in an uncommon Ebony gloss and complete with the original hardshell case. Crafted at the Peerless factory in Korea, this discontinued iteration of the Casino platform is expertly made and stacks up well against the Elitist line.
The fully hollow thinline maple body has a particularly broad and authoritative acoustic bark and cut, capturing both the clear note attack of maple as a tonewood and the warmth of the hollow construction. The P-90s pickups are wound to vintage spec with plenty of midrange presence and a glassy, percussive quality. Whether you want dynamic cleans or thick overdrive, these pickups can produce either with ease. The guitar is featherweight at 6lbs 5oz, benefitting from a professional setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 11-49 strings, easy-playing action, and accurate intonation.
