The Hollywood GC is the best GC I’ve been to. It’s the original location. I actually found a peavey bass amp in the parking lot behind the store one time that I took home and my band used for years. Then my drummer friends’ band used it too. We bought a moog synth there that was incredible. 
 

lots of fond memories of that GC. It should have mojo by association 

 

That store is the only place I’ve played an original Casino now that I think of it. I think you’re in for a good experience

GC Hollywood is a Candy Store for Musicians no doubt! I’m always amazed with their Vintage Gear!

I’ve had one of these new Casinos on Order since they were announced at NAMM way back when.. It’s supposed to be coming in August I’m being told.. 

There is so much discussion about the Specs being far from accurate with regard to traditional Casinos! To the point of being sacrilegious! The wrong Ears on the Body, small Headstock & backwards Neck Inlays being the most criticized…

Regardless, the NGD YouTubes all seem very positive & they sound & look great!

Congrats on yours!

I just called them, and spoke to a guy there named Allen who gave me unbelievable service.

He said the guitar came in Friday night, went up on their wall, and was pulled down minutes later for them to ship to me.

The only person who has touched it, was him, and he said he played it for about 3 minutes.

He is having is vintage guitar guy set it up,  great guy and incredible service.

While I was on the phone to him, someone handed him a 20k vintage flying V. 🙂

People are acting like Epiphone announced this as a 1963 reissue and then got the specs wrong, but they never did. This is simply a modern Casino (therefore using modern Gibson specs) that takes some design cues from the 1962/1963 models in the headstock shape and pickup covers.

Yeah, totally.  

I don't mind the inlays the wrong way, LOVE the black pickup covers, only quibble (and a small one) is that  I would have preferred the larger headstock.

I rather like the smaller headstock. I think the headstock on my made in Korea Casino is too long for my tastes. Probably because I'm used to the USA Gibson ES-330 that I've had since the 1970s,  But it doesn't bother me, I love the guitar.

For me, I like the longer headstock. Being a huge Beatles fan,  I have always loved the one on Lennon's
