      Here was mine with my '335 Dot...



      To be honest I bought it just to own one and I tried like everything to bond with it, but it just didn't happen. I took a shameful beating trading it at Guitar Center towards a Princeton Reverb Reissue that I wanted. I'm not sorry for the trade, just offended at how GC took advantage in the deal.

      I agreed to it, so I really have nobody but myself to blame, but if GC researches my once active purchase history, they will see that it comes to an abrupt halt at GC after that deal.

        Not a bad guitar and not bad looking either. They likely have a good share of that market in which there is a lot of competition at that price point.

          Such a great guitar I had to get two.

          An Inspired By Lennon and a Standard.

            I have the exact same problem. Casinos are one of my favorite looking guitars, and I love the tones they have every time I hear someone playing one (the Beatles, some early Rolling Stones, the Kinks, Gary Clark Jr., the Stone Foxes, the Libertines, Howlin' Wolf, Oasis). Every time I try one out though, they just do nothing for me. Weird. I really do wish I could I could bond with one though since I just love the way they look and the history they have.

                  Not even an ES-330?

                  Genuine question: I own a Heritage H530, but never played a Casino or a proper 330...

                      I lust after an Elitist Casino. I hope to add one to my collection some day, but it will have to be at the expense of another guitar and I'm not ready for that yet!

                        The Casino is at least one of the dog's pair of bollocks, and indeed some associated connective tissue.

                              Thanks. I looked for "the one" for a long time. I stumbled across this one at a cool used shop a while back and snapped it up. I see why the Peerless made models are so sought after. Very light and resonant and the action sits way low with no buzz anywhere.
                              The original tuning machines were kinda corroded and gummy, so I put on some Grover Sta Tite open gears the other day and cleaned up the bigsby.
                              Still needs some electrical work. A few scratchy pots and a finicky output jack. I plan to build a new wiring harness for it later in the year and maybe put on a better bigsby. The korean made unit isn't quite as smooth as the more expensive ones.
                              I love that it's painted and not dipped in plastic, though. On these hollowbodies, the thickness of the finish definitely changes things.
                              We're not in Kansas anymore.
