(SOLD) Epiphone Casino Hollow Body Turquoise MIK 2000
Epiphone Casino, turquoise, made in Korea in 2000. What a stunning piece of work! The Casino is Epiphone's most iconic models, appearing on records and tours by The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Oasis and more, and there's a reason they're so well-loved: they're awesome. These older Korean models are beautifully built, you can feel the extra mojo compared to a newer Chinese model. The P90s deliver a great balance between the dynamic response and articulation of the single coils and the warmth and fullness of humbuckers; they're very satisfying. The fully hollow body is super light and responsive to the lightest touch. The neck profile is moderate and the guitar feels sweet in the hands. The finish... this colour is probably more associated with Strats etc., but gosh it looks incredible! It really pops from every angle, you'll struggle to decide whether to touch it or look at it. Proper awesome!
