snowbum007 Posted December 22, 2011 Report Share Posted December 22, 2011 Well, I pulled the trigger and finally bought a casino. I've wanted one for a while and finally found a great price on a new 61 reissue casino. I know, I know I'll get pics of it up in a few. What a great guitar. Plays and sounds like a dream. My neighbor happens to be a luthier and he set it up for me. He even agreed that it was a wonderful guitar; better than another customers vintage casino. I have to say since I bought my first epi, a les paul in 2005, the quality just seems to have gotten better. I changed the pups and electronics on my les paul and dot deluxe but I don't have to change a thing with this casino. I'm a little jealous of how much I spent on my les paul when I look at what they have available today. Gibson pups, orange caps and long tennon necks for the same amount as I paid 6 years ago. It just seems like they turned a corner and are really offering some great stuff and took notice of the mods people are doing. With the recent economic challenges I'm impressed they are able to offer more for about the same price. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
