    Guild Makes some hollows with p90 and Little buckers and even a dynosonic. If you could get hands on one to ty out might do. Even their newer Starfire I P90 thing looks interesting. And is pretty inexpensive with some decent reveiws.
    I only have Starfire III with the LB pickups. I like it quite a bit tho.

    I received a Casino as a gift a few years ago and it's become one of my favourite guitars.

    Decades ago, I had the opportunity to buy a hollowbody guitar -- actually, I needed to get a hollowbody guitar because the jazz band class instructor/conductor at my college wouldn't allow me to play a solid body guitar (which was all I had then) for jazz. I looked into a Casino because I figured the P-90s could get jazzy enough for class/performances but blues-rocky enough for my other musical pursuits. The Casino's skinny neck turned me off so I went with an Epiphone Joe Pass guitar instead. Big mistake. The JP certainly was jazzy but I found it very uninspiring for practically anything else.

    The Casino I have still has a skinny neck but I've learned to adapt to it. Now that I've played it a whole bunch, I don't really notice it unless I'm switching from my Vintera Modified '50s Tele, for example. Even then, I can adapt within minutes. YMMV.

    Great instrument. I highly recommend it.

    +1 for the Guild hollowbodies. They sound awesome (I especially like the LB pickups and I'm not really a humbucker guy), well made, and they're relatively affordable. I particularly liked the Guild Starfire III and the Guild A-150 Savoy reissues. I would love to get one of those.

    Ok the Casino it is it. I will learn to love the neck. Thanks to all that participated.
