    I have a 1980's Matsumoku Epiphone Casino for trade (or sale). I imported this gorgeous Casino from Japan where it had been it's whole life. This guitar is in terrific shape, even if it were a 1 year old guitar. It did have some holes in the top from previous bigsby installation, but I've had those professionally filled. I've also had a full professional setup performed and the end result is that this is everything you could possibly want in a Casino.

    The Casino is very loud acoustically, and is fun to play as kind of a bluesy acoustic guitar. Plugged in it's everything you've heard about P-90s and then some. While I was taking the photos below, I was looking for imperfections, and I was pretty impressed about the condition of this guitar. It definitely spent some time under the bed. There is one small headstock ding, that's pretty tough to see, and two small scratches on the back. The flame/character on this one is very cool, and the pictures really represent the guitar well. I have more pics/description here: http://reverb.com/item/19504-japanese-epiphone-casino-1980s-wine-red

    I also thought it was interesting that the pots have something that looks like dust caps covering them. Neither I nor my tech has seen anything like them, but I thought I'd point it out. This guitar plays outstanding, sounds outstanding, and would be a fine addition to anyone's collection of playable art! I do have the pickguard as well, and have a non OE gig bag I'll ship in. If you want a hard case, I'm willing to go to GC and buy one (with your money) to ship the guitar in.

    sale $950 shipped/pp'ed
