Can't decide what I want. I want a riviera, but I don't want to buy through ebay. I play rock and blues, but really can't decide whether I want to keep my LP or get the Casino with the P-90's.

Epi re-issued the Nick Valensi Riviera last year... they should still be on sale. It's basically a riviera crossed with a casino, less air inside, but p-94 pickups.

I wanted the Nick Valensi, but they can't order it, it's no longer for sale, that's why I am asking about the Casino.

You really have to try the Casino, measure out the pros and cons for yourself.

In my view:

PROS:
-Heavenly cleans, especially through a Fender
-Doubles as an acoustic guitar
-haven't tried it overdriven, but undoubtedly an interesting overdrive tone

CONS:
-limited upper fret access
-this is a big one now. This thing will howl at you if you don't know how to control it. John Lennon loved it because of that same attribute, but some people will likely find it a low point.

I'd say it's worth it, though. There's few guitars I want more than the Epi Casino....
Do YOU know who Les Paul is?

Guitars:

I have played both extensively but I can't decide. I am asking here in hopes of finding someone who owns one haha.

Well, I played one for about 10 minutes about 6 hours ago, if that's any help.

Spent more time playing a Gretsch Electromatic 5120, though.....say, there's a concept....as long as you're considering a Casino, why not consider the Gretsch Electromatic 5122?

Don't like the Gretsch Electromatic series, played them today at GC.

I am not ordering a guitar without playing it zumzool, Guitar Center can only order it if I pay for it .

huh. Well, just a difference in opinions then. Fair enough.

So, um, yeah, the Casino. Go for it.
