This is the ultimate major makeover Epiphone Casino. It started life as a great playing, high quality Korean made Casino. It features a terrific looking classic natural finish which is much less common than the Sunburst or Cherry which most of these were finished in. It has been upgraded with an amazing sounding set of "Casino P-90" pickups that were made by the custom, hand wound, UK pickup maker "The Creamery". These pickups are highly regarded for their accurate early 60s vintage / authentic Casino tone. In addition to pickups, it has also had a complete wiring harness upgrade with all new high quality pots, switch, output jack, wiring, etc... For those of you who are Casino fanatics, you should note that the headstock front on the original 60s models had the black go the complete width of the headstock. Most of the Reissues have a small band of natural finish on each side of the headstock front. So that this guitar would look more period correct, the front of the headstock was sprayed professionally so that the black is the full width of the headstock. It also has a small style truss rod cover and authentic Kluson tuners installed to complete the look. In addition to all of the tone and cosmetic upgrades, this guitar has been setup to play perfect. It truly showcases the best of everything at a really nice price point. It would cost hundreds and hundreds of dollars plus countless hours to find a Casino like this and have a professional luthier do all of the upgrades. This one is ready to go and it also includes a nice hard shell case. [ these sell new without a case ] We have bought and sold a bunch of Casinos over the years [ Korean, China, Reissues, Lennon, and Originals.] This is the best one we have had. This is going to be a great guitar for the lucky and smart buyer.
