I am looking for a quality Epiphone Casino model sans the hefty price tag of a (new) Elitist. Heard the early '80s MIJ Epiphone Casino's made in Matsumoku are very good guitars. Can anyone share some light on these guitars? They seem quite rare.

Thanks! I would like to know how these guitars compare to the current Epiphones. Are they like the Elitist or even better? Ever since I got a '80 Tokai LS-80 I have a fetish for higher end Japanese guitars from the early '80s...
