I have one. it's a great guitar. looks , sounds, plays great.  I'm currently using it for open tuning / slide.  lay out the extra $ for a hardshell case for it if it already doesn't come with one.

Congratulations, and Happy NGD to ya man!  🙂

Any pics of your new Epi ?? 😉 

I'm not big on the Pau Ferro fretboards.  Not saying it isn't good at what it's used for, just don't care for various light colors and streaks that it comes in.  I prefer dark solid colors like  rosewood and Ebony (unless we're talking maple 😉) for my fretboard.   I was disappointed when Fender went that route on their MIM line, and am also disappointed that Epi has followed suite.    I much prefer look and feel of my older Casino with rosewood board.    Here's a pic, and yes,  the board is oiled. 😉

I think if you could switch necks and put the Pau on the blonde Casion and the dark on  the sunburst it would improve both of them
