Recommended Posts

I posted the auction pics of the IBJL Casino I won on 'the Bay a week ago but it finally arrived today. Wow, this baby's mint. Definitely more "solid"?? than the stock Chinese Nat. Casino I played at the music store before I got it. I know it's close to a stock one with better hardware but the extra wood (5 ply all around) I think makes a difference. No finish overruns, binding is all perfect and the sound is tone for years, I really wasn't sure what to expect but wow and the switch in mid running crunchy rhythm through my Blues Jr. is awesome...anyways, here she is at home with me now...

Well, like I said, it's got tone for years...I played my strat with GFS lil killer's in it and a/b'd the two back and forth and I think it's confirmed what I'd always thought, I hate the lil killers. They make a

guitar sound but no character. I have a Robert Cray custom strat in the neck position and it has some clean deep body to it but overall next to the casino, it pales...a lot. I always though my Blues Jr was "okay" but now it sounds like a guitar rig with the casino plugged in...

Great buy mamm,my JL Casino is the most comfortable and easiest on the hands of any guitar I've ever played.I'm sure you'll never part with it.I have a MIC natural also and the JL is a lot superior in every way even though the MIC is a fine guitar.
