  1. It looks like the neck joint is the 17th fret, in 68-69 they moved to a 19th fret neck joint. Nickel parts were used to about 64-65 and then they went to chrome. The TD stands for thin line and dual pickup, had it of been cherry it would of been a TDC. So it does look like indeed a 66 maybe 67 model. Being my favourite guitar and having a non vintage Korean made model (I’m poor)I bought the Epiphone book to learn more about it and also love watching the older videos on YouTube of Norman’s Rare Guitars when Mark Agnesi did it and he has covered numerous of videos on the Casino. It is a stunning guitar though, I would have no idea on its value and always feel a guitar of this age and quality you couldn’t put a price on it. It all depends on what the guitar means to you what someone is willing to pay for it. If I was rich I would pay you a decent amount for it as being my favourite guitar and the fact I would love a vintage guitar but I’m not rich 😢😥 What would you like to get for it?
  2. It’s worthless, I think you should just give it to me 😉🤣 seriously if if it’s not affecting the sound, I would leave it well alone. Play it, love it and enjoy it ✌️
  3. He had smashed the Les Paul from Johnny Marr over someone's head at a gig in Newcastle in 94. Marr then gave him the same LP that he used to record the queen is dead as a replacement

  5. Found a second hand Wildkat on a second hand stores website in the UK and they are wanting £199 for it but £30 for delivery. Trying g to get them down on the price and playing hardball at the moment. If I can get free delivery on it I'm going to get it. Then unless I get a really good deal on a second hand Sheraton I will be buying a brand new one too. I'll keep you updated and get some pictures up if I'm successful with the second hand Wildkat and on a new Sheraton.
  6. I came on here to get some opinions and to maybe justify buying another guitar. I came here with the idea of JUST getting one more........ UPDATE.... I know I can get a Sheraton for £450 and normally the Wildkat sells for £300. A total of £750. I've just emailed a couple guitar stores in the UK to see what they can do me as a combined deal for the 2. Seriously considering purchasing the 2. It's my birthday at the end of September and the Mrs has said well why don't you look at getting both at the same time..........😲😲😲😲 If I seriously can get a £100 knocked off that price I think I could be making a double purchase. Think this forum could do with a health warning!! 😀😁😂🤣 Please don't anyone post any links for a Coronet 😀😁😂🤣
  7. I do like the Wildkat🤤🤤🤤🤤 Epiphone for the money make the best guitars IMHO. A Sheraton, Wildkat and if they make a reissue of a Coronet then my collection would be complete 🤔 well maybe almost complete 😜😂
  8. Don't want an SG, I've got a Les Paul so have a solid body and I also have a full hollow in the Casino. So I really want a semi hollow hence the Sheraton. I want it blinged up too as I think it's a beautiful guitar for the money. I've been checking cash converters and cash generator on top of places like Reverb, eBay and gumtree. Second hand seems to be coming in at around d £400 but I dont know if I should just plump for a brand new one and go for it for the extra £50 after reading people's comments On tone what is people's opinions on the Sheraton compared to a Dot? I mainly play through a tweed blues junior and get my tone from a range of pedals when it's not clean.
  9. There was a time when I bought into the whole Korea and China made guitars but to be honest I've played a few and really like the new Chinese made Sheraton's. I bought a Korean made Casino A few years and wouldn't of considered a Chinese made one at that time but after looking at a few Sheratons I love the quality of them. The detail of the guitar is amazing. The 5 ply binding on the pickguard in particular is something I can't believe they managed to do on a guitar at this price range. I haven't tried the older versions so I take on board what you're saying about the pickups. The feel and the quality of the guitar is in my opinion better made than my Casino I'm in the UK and brand new I could pick one up for about £450 and £500 with a hard case. I would of liked a second hand one simply because there are a few gems out there and I know I will be able to pick one up a bit cheaper. Problem with eBay is I would like to try it before buying especially after what your saying about the older ones

  11. I would love some help on picking a new guitar. I currently have an Epic Casino (fully hollow), Epi Les Paul (solid body) and a fender telecaster. I'm having major GAS and would love to add a new Epi into my collection and want a semi hollow in my growing collection. I feel going second hand because there are allot of bargains out there and really fancy something a bit more up market than the dot and fancy a Sheraton. Wanted to know what's people's opinion of the Sheraton over a dot and even the Sheraton II or anything else they feel would be a good option. I'm really wanting to know why you would choose a particular semi hollow over a different model? I've listened and tried various models and I guess to an extent looking for more reasons of why I need another guitar and wanted to pick people's brains. 🤔

    Wow!! Amazing looking Casino, without a doubt the nicest colour and I would give me left testicle for a black casino. Maybe the missus would allow me it on the basis of giving up a testicle 😂😂
