1996 Epiphone Casino made in Nashville U.S.A.

Recommended Posts

I was just browsing the Epiphonewiki site, when I came across the Catalogue section. Looking at the 95 Catalogue I saw an add for a U.S.A. (Nashville) made Epiphone Casino! The add said:- Casino USA "Coming spring 1996". Now what I want to know is did it happen?


Here`s the catalogue page:-




What is interesting, is that the Casino pictured looks just like a mid 90s Korean model, with the 3 screw TRC, and 17th fret neck join, and the shorter trapeze tailpiece.


Does anyone know anything about these, or better still own one?

Doesn't ring any bells with me. My own Casino is around this age, with the 17th fret body join etc and was made by Fujigen for the Japanese market - perhaps they were planning an 'Assembled in USA' model with Fujigen providing the bodies? Or perhaps they simply used an off the peg Korean guitar for the illustration?
