Im thinking of buying one of these 2... and I played both, but I dont know which one to choose

I liked the acustic tone of the Casino and its crunchy distorsion, but it feedbacks like hell
The Sheraton has a nice clean sound and realy cool distorsions...

I play classic rock, some alternative music, modern rock, and some folk songs.

which one do you suggest?

If you use more songs with a substantial level of distortion (ie about 7 upwards) then you're best off with the Sheraton. If you don't, then the Casino.

most songs I play are with a little of distorsion or overdrive, not a METAL DISTORSION, but some overdrive or crunch is ok for me...

Sheraton, I played a casino once and it feedbacked terribly even when it was clean.

IMO humbuckers are more versatile as well, and the sheraton looks nicer

In which case, I second the Sheraton I tried one and it was lovely, I had to restrain myself from buying it then and there.

If you really like the tone of the casino, you could just buy it and fill it with newspapers so it doesnt feed back. Doesn't get more rock and roll than that...but personally, i think the sheraton's a better deal and a lot more versatile as well.

yeah someone told me that the Casino could be filled with foam rubber to stop feeding back, but that would affect the tone... I really liked its tone, and there are ways of preventing feedback, like... I use more overdrive than distorsion, and If I step some feets away from the amp I think that way It would stop squealing, right?
#11
yeah they are sexy... I just saw a music video from Paul Weller playing one, and it sounded great, now I want a Casino right now hah

I have to call a luthier to put the foam rubber into it, right?

I don't know what everyone's problem is with feedback. I've had my Casino(In BEAUtiful natural) since September and have not had any troubles with feedback on clean. Of course, since its hollow, distortion is a major pain. But, it is very nice and the pickups are decent. The only thing that bothers me is the toggle switch seems loose, but perhaps its just me.

The Casino is perfect for me because I mostly play Rockabilly and '60s. (The beatles, stones, kinks, who, byrds.)

SHERATON. I mean, you play alt, and the Sheraton works better with distortion.
