Here is a very nice early example of sought after Korean Peerless Casino. It was built in 1996 the well renowned Peerless factory in Korea. These Peerless Casinos took over from Terada production. They like Terada, have been long discontinued now that production has been moved to China to cut costs, and don't come up much nowadays; they are very well thought of and becoming harder to find as their reputation grows. This one is a lovely old hollowbody. It is ageing very gracefully with a deep vibrant ’65 Era Sunburst finish. The plastics and binding are starting to age to an off white and all the metal hardware still retains a deep shine. You feel how resonant this one is as soon as you pick it up. It plays beautifully with a medium action and the P90’s boom as soon as you plug it in. You really can’t go wrong with a hollowbody/P90 combination. There have been no breaks or repairs. It’s all original with no modifications. Electrically and structurally sound. Neck is dead straight truss rod checked and functioning fine, plenty of life left in the frets. It’s a real featherweight at 2.6kg. It comes with original Epiphone hardcase. It no longer has it's pickguard. It has a few scuffs and marks. I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story, this is a beautiful old Peerless Casino. The Korean Casinos from Peerless have gained a great reputation and increasing in value. Don’t miss this one.
