I had one these Chinese made Casinos made in 2017. It was just awful. Fretboard was supposed to be Indian Rosewood, but it looked like very pale walnut colourwise. The pickups sucked big time and I never bonded with it. I fancied to give it another try and bought another one from Thomann brand new. The price was raised in 2,5 years from 522€ to 599€. First impressions: Off with pickguard. Fit and finish good. Frets needs polishing, bending is bit sticky. The pau ferro fretboard looks much nicer and darker than the previous one. Setup was terrible, action and intonation all over the place. The fact that it had been sitting in some logistics center or back of a truck during christmas, so no wonder. Some tweaking around, playing for good half hour and it actually sounded quite good plugged straight to AC30 and 65 PRRI. Not sure if this will be a keeper (I keep my eyes open for Inspired by John Lennon), but at this moment won’t return it and add to my JL herd.
