    Congrats. Nice Casino. I love them too as I picked up a IBJL Revolution awhile back. Justs puts a smile on my face every time I grab it. Enjoy yours!

    Oooh you don’t see too many black ones. You could get black covers and a black pickguard - none more black.

    Nice!
    I sold mine last month, a tobacco burst. I really liked the sound of that guitar but at 5ft 7, i was dwarfed. :(

    Everyone whoever played my Blueshawk loved it, but I don't know anyone else who has one

    Casino gets mixed responses when I lent it out, but I always stress what it did for the Beatles. One of the greats

    How is the balance? I had a P93 Riviera for awhile, good tone, but very neck heavy. After awhile I grew tired of the dive and found the 3rd pickup to just get in the way. Other than those 2 things though I thought the build quality of that Epi was very good and it sure looked very sharp. I get tempted to try another Epi Semi and the choice always come down to a Casino, Sheraton, or Lucille.

    Neck dive is not a problem. I have a Epi 335 Dot and it's how you describe your Riviera. The Casino doesn't have that problem. Maybe it has to do with the lack of a center block.

    A Bigsby will take care of all neck dive problems.

    Really like these Casino's in Black.
