Cheers Jayyj, its actually more red in person, the darker almost black outline isnt really visible to the naked eye. Very similar to Paul Wellers '66 Casino.

Its a slim neck like the USA/MIJ Lennon models as opposed to the slightly chunkier Elitist neck which is more like my old '67 Casino. Its mahogany 3 piece neck, I will have to measure the nut, again it feels similar to the Lennon and slightly smaller at the nut than the Elitist.

Beautiful. There have been a couple of really nice Japanese Market casinos on ebay uk in the last couple of months. They always seem to come along at the wrong time for me.

Is this the same guitar that Jonny-2-owls used to own, and put up on ebay (U.K.) recently?

I would hazard a guess that the neck is actually a 3 piece Maple one, as most of the Matsumoku and Terada made(Pre-Elitist) Casino`s are.

Congrats on the Casino and enjoy [biggrin] .

Yep it's the same guitar.

Sad to see it go but still loving the Riviera.

Glad it's gone to a good home!

This is why I love this forum.

It just moves from one member to another, but never leaves the community.

Enjoy your new girl. Play her often.

1 9/16" nut is what i'm told, with a slimmer than elitist neck. i keep hearing how awesome these are, even better than the elitists, but i don't know if i can go that small on the neck, much less the nut. it would require a leap of faith and trial period. makes me nervous.
