  1. Ernest had a sponsorship deal with Epiphone. His whole band played Epic. Ernest had a custom Frontier, and an Excellente. Loretta Lynn also played a n Excellent, ad has it till this day. Leon Rhodes played custom Sheratons. As did Steve Chapman who followed him on lead guitar.
  2. Bob Colosi has you covered. http://www.guitarsaddles.com/products.asp
  3. Check Bob's instructions on sizing pins. When I replaced the pins on my J45 I sent him one of the old ones for comparison. The new ones he sent fit perfectly. I would never touch the bridge holes. Simply sand the pin down. http://www.guitarsaddles.com/products.asp
  4. Browse here. Bob has some really nice ones that won't break the bank. http://www.guitarsaddles.com/products.asp
  5. Just enlarge the hole on the endpin end of the strap. The point of a sharp knife will do the trick. My Mastebilt doesn't have a front button.
  6. my 2003 '65 Casino Elite is definitely Maple. And, it is for sale in the Trading Post section, for no more than you would pay to upgrade a Chinese Casino.
  7. I agree with , leave them as is. If you want to keep some and restore; I highly recommend http://pstguitars.com They do incredible restorations.
  8. I have one for sale in the trading post. Mint, no alterations. With an EDREAD case.

  11. Red- that's what I've been thinking. Guess the economy has everybody down. I just can't give it away.
  12. I have an excellent Elite 1965 Casino for sale in the Sale or Trade section. For considerably less than $2000. http://forum.gibson.com/index.php?/topic/114225-fs2003-epiphone-65-casino-elite/
  13. You might want to play them first. I returned a EJ200CE because I thought the eSonic 2 system was crap. The cutaway seemed to affect the sound as well. I have played several Texans and they all sounded good. Plus, they're a bargain. Just MHO.
