  1. Being a Strat and tele players for years, when I bought my Casino, it became my no 1 guitar. Hope will be the same for you. Enjoy it, it's a nice guitar.
  2. I really love **** guitars !!! I might buy one Just kidding, but really don't understand why you don't name it, or am I the only one not guessing of wich guitar you are talking about ? If you can mention Fender, why not something else ?
  3. I was to buy it...and suddenly I've notice the shipping was $200 for Canada... No way I will spend $200 for shipping... :unsure:
  4. Very nice guitar ! Does BB King's fingers comes with it..? lolll
  5. My favorite is the Casino, but if I would have choice between the 2 submitted, I would go straight to Les Paul. I really don't like SG's. But it's really personal.
  6. Played almost all my life with Fender Stratocasters and few Telecasters. I ounce bought a LesPaul Epiphone Classic about 10 years ago, because I wanted to at least try the feeling of playing one in my life. I liked it but did'nt fell in love with it and I did still play my Fenders as a main guitar. Last year ( well let say 6 or 7 months ago ) I decided to try out another Epiphone. So I bought a Casino in natuarl color, only because John Lennon had one and felt it would be nice on my wall if I did'nt like to play it. Believe me, it was love at first sight. All Fenders are on the wall...looking
  7. Guys you were right ! I raised the pickups a bit, putted new strings, adjusted the intonation, the nut was to tight for 2 strings so I fixed it with a bit of sanding, putted graphite lube on the nut and it's now completely different. So no more trade offer !!! I will keep my nice ES-339...yes
  8. Blue suede shoes --- Elvis Presley and many more...
  9. Thanks dporto, I was thinking to adjust the pickups and also change the strings for new ones. I'll do that during the week end and see. Changing the pickups for P-90's is also a good idea i might experience, since I love the feel of the 339. I'll let you knoe...
  10. Thanks ztiesman, but I'm really not a fan of SG's. But it's nice from you to had offered it.
  11. Hi Cougar, Thanks to figure out a deal...loll, but I don't feel like I'm stuck with it. It's just that I don't feel right with this guitar. It's fantastic looking at her, and also a pleasure to handle it and play it, but sound wise it's not my cup of tea... For anybody else, it could be THE ONE. I would certainly also consider a MIM Telecaster, if you ever have one.
  12. Hi Dporto, It's hard to explain, but the Casino sounds exactly like I want... The ES-339 sounds week compare to the Casino. It must be the difference between P-90 and Humbuckers... and it's worst if you pull the knobs to bring it as a Single coil. It's probably a personal perception, but I'm sure the ES-339 won't play in my hands, so even if I'm not sure how will sound a LesPaul, at least I will try something else and it might be it...
  13. Just bought my ES-339 pro in vintage sunburst last week, but it's not what I was looking for. My main guitar is my Casino and I don't know when I'm gonna use this nice ES-339. The guitar is perfect, nothing wrong with it. It's even nicer than my Casino, but it's not the sound I was looking for. I don't want to put it on Ebay,it will cost me 10% in fees and anyway, one of you might have interest in a trade and we would only have to pay each other the shipping both ways. I would consider a trade for a Les Paul or a wildkat ( for P-90's pickups ) As long your Les Paul is not blue or silver, that

  15. My 2 beloved Epiphone ( ES339 and Casino ) and my Takamine in my man cave....
  16. Sorry...Just notice I posted in the wrong place... I tought I was in the lounge... but don't know how to bring it there !!!
  17. Just for the fun of it ! Let's see pictures of yourself now and then... I'm starting ! In 1968... on the roof of my family home.. ( I know...with socks in my sandals...loll ) during a gig in novmber 2012... Did'nt have Epiphone at that time...
  18. Now that I have a Casino and will receive in a few days a brand new ES-339 pro, I would really like to add a Les Paul Ultra II or III to the family. I would like one like this : If it is a Ultra III would like this color... For an Ultra II, well the choice is not to wide... Probably a Cherry sunburst
  19. Bought a new Casino from Musician's friend 3 weeks ago...had the poster and wrench, but no sticker and no cord.... And I can't even complaint I'm Canadian, the guitar was sent from USA !!!! :blink:
