Casinos sound amazing.

I used to play one through a piece of crap amp, and it managed to produce the best sounds that I made during that time. It was also my first time experience with P-90's. Unfortunately, I had to sell it, but I've wanted to get another one ever since. If I did, I would probably go for that color.

As for price, I have no idea. I traded an upright bass (for which I paid $600) for mine back in the day.

I use to have that same guitar...one of only two guitars I really regreat getting rid of. I think I paid around $299 for mine. I saw one at Guitar Center a couple months ago. I went back to get it and it was sold. I think it was under $400...maybe closer to $350.

We have one just like that with a bigsby. I think it's overpriced at $699 used. I would say realistically $550-$600 used, it's a rare color.

Yes it was...and so was the one I saw a couple months ago. The only two in that color I've ever seen in person.

That is a rare colour for a Casino.
I wouldn't pay more than $300 for a Casino.

When I read the title at first I thought it said "Exploding casinos" like you had a heist in mind.

They made that color for a few years in the Late 90's. It was even on the cover of the epi catalog in the late 90's. It was a blonde gal playing a bigsby model, like Nick mentioned.

They also did some cool Riviera's in like Heathermist Poly.

I'll see if I can get some scannage action later.

Back when Epiphone moved out of the Samick plant, people were snatching up "after hours" unregistered Dot Deluxes and Casinos on the way out, suddenly popping up at local shops. The Turq Casinos, however, stuck around for years and years. This country favors black/sunburst finishes of classic shapes, and has very little love for young turqs.

I understand your sentiment, I've heard (and experienced) the quality on these guitars are very hit or miss. a lot of times there are little quality issues with them but every once in a while you get a nice one. but still $300 is how much the bottom of the line Dot Studio costs. You'll never get one of these for that cheap.

that color is so awesome on that guitar. if it pops up again, im doing it.
