Up for sale, a 1988 Epiphone Casino in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. A rare example with a lightly figured maple body, this Casino has a few light speckles of birdseye and ripples of quilt in the maple on both the top and back of the instrument. Produced in Japan at the Terada factory, this is an uncommon Epiphone reissue which preceded the current "Elitist" line. Faithfully replicating mid'60s spec, the P-90s have plenty of bark and growl, with a glassy, touch sensitive sound.
Perfect for bold cleans or overdriven sizzle, these pickups take full advantage of both the snappy attack of the maple body and the warmth of the fully hollow construction. Weighing in at only 6lbs 7oz, we've had this Casino professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar and dialed in for optimal action and intonation.
The neck has a notably slender and fast C shaped profile with consistent depth as you travel up the fretboard. The rosewood fretboard retains original medium jumbo fretwire, and the guitar plays cleanly up the neck with no buzzing or dead spots and a responsive truss rod, ideally set for low action in all registers.The frets have great height and meat, showing zero fretwear. The nut measures 1 9/16 in width and is a hand-carved piece of bone for optimal clarity and sustain.
The headstock retains the Kluson-style nickel tuners which turn smoothly and hold pitch as they should. The orange oval label visible through the F hole has the correct five digit serial for Terada factory Japan production (8 for 1988, 5 for Casino, and a trio of digits for production number). Cosmetically, the natural gloss finish is extremely clean, with only a few scattered minor nicks and light finish scuffs.Check out our shop "Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, " and please let us know if we can answer any questions!
