What would be the best alternative to an epiphone casino blak and blu if the music shop can't deliver what I ordered and paid for?

I guess they will offer me a good deal on something else....

Gibson 335 studio?? Any thoughts??
If you want a double-cut, semihollow guitar with 2 P90s under $1000, you have several options. My first suggestion would be the Reverend Manta Ray 290:

Sturgeon's 2nd Law, a.k.a. Sturgeon's Revelation: “Ninety percent of everything is crap.”

Why, yes, I am a lawyer- thanks for asking!

Log off and play yer guitar!

Strap on, tune up, rock out!
It was the 335 I was initially looking at... but the casino sounded so good being hollow.

If I can upgrade to a gibson woth a good deal, thay would sway my decision...

Or any other suggestions?
