Standard Casino Spec Change?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, apologies if this has been covered. A quick search turned up nothing.

 

I was over on the Epi site recently and noticed that the standard Casino has apparently changed from a 17th fret neck join to a 16th?

May seem like a trivial matter, but that detail has always bugged me when compared to the Elitist, Lennon, etc.

 

Can see why they'd do it...standardizes the line especially since the 'Inspired By' line came out.

 

Anyone else notice this?

When I bought my 61 RI Casino from Sam Ash they had one of their special order Casinos with a bigsby. Had to do a double take but the body and neck joint were the same as the 61 so maybe they are updating the line.

 

Would be nice if they finally fixed the Lennon EJ160E to the right scale too.

I noticed this past weekend looking at Casino's on Sweetwater. I did a little research on the web and have found this to be the case atleast as far back as mid 2011, could have been earlier. I wonder if all current MIC Casino's ( IBJL & Standard ) are made in the same plant? If so it may be a case of leaving the tooling specs the same for production/continuity sake. Either way I am always a big fan of Epi using vintage specs!

They also seem to have cut the color options down to just 'burst, natural, and cherry.

 

I'm a big fan of the vintage spec too. Now that they've changed the biggest thing that bugged me about the standard models, I might just have to finally pull the trigger on one...
