There are a lot of casinos here in Minnesota but this totally flamed Casino is definitely worth taking a gamble on, LOL, and it's one great guitar even though I'm pretty much a Strat guy...........The hardware on this thing is oxidized to perfection; it looks soooo cool.......and I didn't even have to strip the sunburst paint off.............

So, any Casino fans out there?

Nice guitar! Love the color.... what year is it? I wasn't clear on whether it is old or new... is it for sale?

regards, Andy

Nice guitar! Is that some trick of the camera near the bottom in
the first picture? It looks like there's some extra shaping of the top
or that there's some translucent material (gel) on it. Anyone else
see this?

BTW, I have an Epi Wildkat and I love it. It's a great guitar
for the money. It comes with grover tuners and a bigsby tremelo. The finish on the neck is really superb with great fret finishing. I potted the pickups and now it's one of my favorite guitars. It's under-rated for sure.

Thanks! The color is a little dark in the 1st photo; it's closer in color to the 2nd & 3rd pics.

There is some debate as to the year; possibly '88 or '98 but considering the heavily oxidized bridge, covers, and tuners a '98 model seems unlikely.

Not currently for sale but everything is subject to change.........

No tricks, actually that is likely a reflection of some bubble wrap that was nearby when the pics were taken.

The Epi Wildkats are pretty cool; very nice guitars indeed. A chick in Guy Forsyeth's band used to play one. If you ever get a opportunity to see Guy, goooooo see him, he's incrdeible.

Of course! I see all the bubble wrap now! I guess I was too focused on the guitar to see it...

How are the P90s in that guitar? Do they feedback at all in the hollow-body setting? I just recently learned that a lot of my favorite Beatles guitar sounds were made on a Casino. I think Paul still uses it a lot to record.

I've never had it cranked up enough to see if it has the feedback associated with these hollow bodies. I usually just take it out and play it acoustically as I'm pretty much a Strat player. The pickups have the typical P90 response, pretty clean yet big and ballsy too if you crank it up a bit.

Since it's natural finish, it will look great next to my natural finish Greco PMB 800 RH; on the right in the photo. Once I dig the Greco out I'll get a pic of them together and post it too. The Fireglo (it's for sale) on the left is also a Greco-Backer......

It's not exactly the same color, you'll have to find another.
