Feeling the full strength of the Casino Gas


Recommended Posts

It's been many years since I had a Casino... I had a 1996 Korean one which I (stupidly) lost in a poker game in 2002 (seriously, I'm not making this up). In my defense, I had the 3,4,5,6,7 of Hearts in my hand when I placed the bet. I couldn't believe it when the b*stard laid down a Royal Flush...

 

Such is life.

 

Anyway...I've promised myself a new Casino 8 weeks from now, and am enjoying the 'research' process.

 

Luckily, it seems that there are deals to be had in the present economic climate. Fullers want $499 for this cherry beauty:

See: Fuller's Casino

 

 

Which seems very reasonable...

 

And before you ask, I no longer play cards...

Haha!! I like your style more and more every day. I would have probably bet my Casino with a hand like that.

 

Don't even talk to me about Casino GAS. I think it's what wakes me up every morning. I currently have the option of an 06 Peerless or an 06 unsung. Both of them come with the newer moulded epiphone case but the Unsung one is £50 more at £350 and is in London and not round here. Both are cherry. Strange how both factories were making the same guitar at the same time huh?

 

Do you prefer a bright cherry or a wine red style finish? That one in the picture is beautiful!!

 

This one in Glasgow is "good as new" and he bought it from a local guitar shop and has only been out the case 4-5 times. £300. Tuesday can't come soon enough!!!

Red I never get sick of seeing those! How come you took the PG off your Lennon 65? I much prefer that PG than the modern one.

 

I'm not sure. It may not have come installed, or maybe I took it off because it was on the Elitist. Maybe 'cuase there's not one on Maccas. Or it could be I was thinking about putting a black or tortoise guard on it; I like those better than the white. LOL, I just don't remember!

Aaarghhh. Will you guys please ping me when a nice Casino comes up that you DON'T want?

 

I prefer sunburst and a Bigsby would be nice too.

 

Thanks' date='[/quote']

 

Well, if you're serious about that Brian, how's about this one?

I saw this guitar at the Fuller's website also. It's a limited edition Bigsby model from a couple of years ago, which they still have in stock.

 

Here's the link: Ltd edition Casino with Bigsby

 

They're asking $699.

That's exactly what I bought back in the fall. New Old Stock Ltd. Edition from Daddy's Junky Music here in NH. Same price.

 

VERY nice guitar. Beautiful finish, plays great. I put a roller bridge on it, and a taller Bigsby spring. I love it.

If you post a link to a high-resolution version of this picture (biggest possible), I'll photoshop the background to make it look nice - it's such a great picture would love to fix it up . . . it's driving me nuts that the fabric doesn't come all the way down the wall and I can fix those wrinkles

Get RED!!! My only reason for not taking my own advise, is the fact I've got three red Epi's already. A Wildkat pictured here, a Dot, and last but not least - my Riviera.

 

So I got the Casino in natural, maybe down the road. Who know's?

Oh! By the way, Red 333. I love Aimee Mann! She's also in my height range. Again, maybe down the road.......
