    Tried one last Thursday at GC, the P90s really have a sweet sound and the neck was comfortable and fast

    Was the neck really thin? (I like a beefier neck.)

    I'd end up gutting all the electronics and wind some custom p-90s. :)

    The neck is somewhere in the middle... I generally just play Les Pauls, this is my only hollow body electric. It is thicker than my Epi LP Custom, thinner than a Gibson LP Studio - pretty close neck profile to my Epiphone Elitist. I don't know if that means 50's or 60's, etc - but its right in the middle, IMO.

    Its a nice beefy neck, but not a baseball bat - I like it.

    The neck profiles on the MIK Casinos have changed over the years. I had a mid-90s one that had a beefy neck and a smaller nut spec which made chording in the first position tough even with smaller fingers.

    I really like the thin profiles of the Lennon Casinos and the Elites.

    I've played a brand new one my friend bought. The neck was great, really easy, not too thick, not too thin. It has the wider nut width so the chords are ok (I know what you mean about the narrow nut, i had a 90s Riviera). After playing his Casino, I nearly didn't buy the Tele I'd saved for months for.

    Dot, Sheraton, Casino........

    All those are really cool guitars I think.

    There's a music store 1 block from where I work that has a red Casino with hardcase for $550.

    I've gone in there and played it several times through different amps and I've come to the conclusion that it is an AWESOME guitar!!!

    But I don't know if it would work well for me cause i usually play higher gain classic rock type stuff, and there would be hum and feedback issues.

    Plus..... I'm only doing acoustic gigs at the moment.
