It's not quite my style(It doesn't have the sustain I want/need, though if I continue building speed it may), but the tone was always lovely I thought, and it sounds perfect for you.

If you're a fan of indie music, might want to give a listen to a few songs off Interpol's first two albums, the lead guitarist uses an Epiphone Casino, I think he changed in their third album though.

Dude, look what you wrote:

Uhhh, that's like asking
- looking for a piece of meat in between two rolls with ketchup and pickles and you can get it at McDonald's. Should I get a hamburger?

In what you are looking for you described an Epiphone Casino exactly --- and then you ask should I get an Epiphone Casino!?!

From the description you gave, the Casino would be an ideal guitar for you. They're lovely guitars and have a nice, warm, rounded sound which is fantastic for clean playing. I love their tone with a bit of drive too.

mmmmm a Casino, I played one and I loved it, I think it's one of Epiphone's best guitars. If you want that Beatles sound pick one up man, you won't be disappointed. Although if you could spring an extra 500 dollars get the Elitist Casino it is worth it.

Also look at the Yamaha SA503 TVL, it's a semi with three P90 pickups and imo sounds great. I never tried to get a Beatles sound out of one, but it's pretty versatile and gets lovely cleans, so that shouldn't be much of a problem. Last time I checked those were 999$.

No sustain block = true hollowbody. Great versatile tone with jazz, soul, blues, punk, chunk and country, COOL feedback right around midrange, plenty of bright jangle when cleaned up, but not a sustain champ, nor a shred/metal dream. The Casino's a GREAT guitar, but I find most stock Epi pick-ups a bit harsh. I'd upgrade to Gibson or Duncan 90s and be extremely happy! :-)

Guys, this was a month ago EXACTLY, why did you revive it?!
