Epiphone 2001 Casino Electric Guitar Antique Sunburst Finish Peerless Factory


Here is a a beautiful 2001 Korean Peerless Casino. It was built at the well renowned Peerless factory in Korea. It is a nice clean example of one of the great guitars. These Peerless Casinos took over from Japanese Terada production. They like Terada, have been long discontinued now that production has been moved to China to cut costs, these excellent Peerless guitars 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 hollowbody. It is ageing very gracefully with a deep vibrant ’65 Era Vintage 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 solid and 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 and still has it's original pickguard. 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. Just some light playwear, but nothing too harsh. It comes with its original Epiphone hardcase, all latches working fine. 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.
