    Hi all, on Thursday I managed to purchase one of my dream guitars, A 1964 Epiphone Casino.
    I have already posted these pics in the pickup section to try and get some help identifying them but thought it might be of some interest over here.

    Before purchasing I understood that it was a 'players guitar' and had been messed with in the past.

    It had been strung left handed previously, had a replacement nut and worst of all had been routed out for hum buckers (having looked under the present P90s with a bit of repositioning the p90 covers can cover the routes completely).

    The P90s that came with it aren't original I was informed, however I also wasn't told what they were at all.

    They are soapbar ones being held badly with clips in the dog ear cases.
    One has a clear bobbin and one has a black one.
    They brass plates with branded wire going to a black and a white wire

    The clear bobbin one is late 60's and into the '70s Gibson.
