    Found this right before Christmas. Been wanting a hollow or semi-hollow for a while, and something with P90's. A not so thin neck was on my list too. This one checked those boxes.

    It still had the plastic on the pick guard, pickups and TRC. It also had the Tremetone. Nothing against that, but I wants a trapeze. I can always put the Tremetone back. It was a simple swap.

    The neck is a nice medium C and not the slim D like the regular Casinos. I measured it too at .83 at the 1st. I should have written it down, because I can't remember the 12th. But it feels real good.

    It's a 2011. A 50th Anniversary model where they made a limited number.

    Epiphone should bring these back in one form or another. Maybe not use the Gibson USA pups. Or make a change to them, so the guys who bought these as a limited run item won't be offended. It's really a nice playing guitar. The neck for me was the main attraction.
