Value For Money : Excellent
Model new, made in China. All specs you know if you read the previous reviews ....
Good violin, very good general appearance

UTILIZATION

I played for many years on the Fender (I have not stopped eh!) I was not in any way désenparé this round. Super comfortable, a little bigger than my Jazzmaster but nothing unsettling. A treat ....
Access to acute is necessarily limited due to join the 16 fret but hey who cares .... the vintage models have a join as the 335, with better access to acute ...

SOUNDS

the important issue ....
So to be honest, this guitar has given me a hard time. I got this shovel for my 30th birthday with my family. This is the only reason why I still have it. I hesitated more than once to separate me ... if so .... original sound rough, super hot, too hot, it's runny, it is soft, not sharp, no shit, the shit .... do shit .... I strongly suggest a change of pickups! What I do .. I had no dosh, I only changed the pickups bridge (this is the one I use most of the time) by GFS. Result .... better but not there yet ... I changed the knobs by CTS, ahhhhhh finally! Finally a good hollowbody sound. The p90 sounds really good, although slamming (this is not a single Fender eh!) And fat at the same time, it saturates slightly to the old sounds a treat .... I intend, as soon as possible, put better pickups (Lollar 50's wind) to finalize. But already by this change just by cheap microphones, you have a good instrument to play seriously ...

Many complain that it easily share feedback .... band dicks! Feedback is THE thing rock'n'roll! Not a good concert without feedback! anyone can learn to manage this. At worst you can put something in the guitar (the tissue or chai not what) it attenura resonance. If it still bothers you, pay you a solid body ...

Guitar once this change is made, is finally revealed! Shovel for superb vintage sounds good, typical rock'n'roll, blues, rockabilly, .... I play in a garage rock band (60's) surf psyche ... It was well wooded typical hollowbody, a delight ....
To give you an idea, listen to the 13th floor elevator, he plays with an es-330 (same as the casino)

for the final note, I judge after upgrade mics ......

OVERALL OPINION

So overall, this is a very good guitar. I think with good microphones (there is a ton of different p90) was a great guitar for all levels and use.

My kid played with my Jazzmaster and broke the micro switch. And that two days before a concert ..... I was forced to take the Casino. I'd never do to live with, eh bin was the ball!! So the Casino has kindly pushing aside the Jazzmaster. My jazzmaster is still not repaired since 3 months! ....... I can just do without this sound, this shape, this feeling that you have when you play with. In short it is the hearts ...

Too much Beatlesmaniac consider this guitar. I do not listen to the Beatles (well very very little) and I do not care if john or other had it, it is definitely not because of them that I have this guitar ... It is wrong to think arch: Casino-Beatles ... This is a guitar with a very strong personality, able to excel in many styles. Vintage sounds of course ....
Very highly recommended!
