Hi everyone I recently bought an Epiphone Casino, and while I both absolutely love the looks of it (Pau Ferro looked amazing), the acoustic sound and its playability/feel (the edges of the binding were nicely rolled and I love the slimtaper D neck, reminds me of my old spanish guitar), I was having a few issues both with some rattling from the bridge/hardware (including the bridge pickup vibrating) when strumming, the pickup toggle switch being loose, but most importantly the sound of the pickups. I found them to be very hot and muddy, especially the neck pickup, with rumbling noises coming out of the amp when playing the bass strings. I tried to adjust the EQ on the amp, but it didn't help significantly. I have a cheap 20w Harley Benton amp, but my fender Strat sounds clean with every setting. I have heard complaints about the pickups in the casinos being overwound, but didn't expect them to be this muddy. It's a shame because I really bonded with the guitar, but I think I might have to return it and get an Epiphone ES-335 that came out a few months ago. I know they are 2 completely different guitars, but I've heard the humbuckers are lower output compared to the casino p90s. Would you also have returned the casino if you didn't bond with the pickups even though the playability was perfect? And has anyone had any experience with the new ES-335's? Thank you for taking the time!
Hey all, I love the look of this year's limited edited Epi Dot Deluxe in Aquamarine. I'm highly considering getting one while they're still available. However, in my research, I've also noticed that it seems the same color was released on the ES-335 Pro model overseas. So I'm wondering if the Pro will be released in the U.S. at all, or did they simply release the aquamarine color only on the Dot in the U.S., and on the 335 Pro overseas? (and for no specific reason)? Granted, they're extremely similar. I'm just curious why the Dot was released in U.S., and the 335 Pro overseas. Unless, again, it was simply arbitrary and not for a specific reason. I'll try to attach pics of both. Thanks for any info on this!
Hi everyone! I'm going to purchase a second-hand ES 335, so I went try some and I came across this curious circumstance: this guitar is sold as '99 ES 335, the internal label is yellow with handwritten serial and model, BUT it's not stated anywhere that it's a "335" (only "ESDT"). I made some search on the web but not found any information about this marking or 'incomplete' labelling. Could someone explain it please? Wondering if it could be a (excellent) fake. Thank you all, Maurizio
