These bolded phrases raise a good question: are you trying to expand your tonal options or sticking closer to HB & P90 sounds?
either would most likely be fine. you are familiar with bigsby's right? they aren't a trem like a strat or similar. very subtle when using.
The AC4 is a tube amp, but it comes with a 12 inch speaker option.
The Orange 20RT is a solid state amp, 8 inch speaker.
Between those two it's the AC4 all the way, but I have to ask, why only those two choices?
If you're looking for an amp just for practice in your apartment, have you considered buying a set of monitor speakers and using a program like Amplitube? That's what I've replaced my amps with, and I've never really regretted it. Having the monitor speakers are great for listening to music with, and you don't need to crank them to sound good. Plus, if you find one of those Jack Sparrow'd versions of Amplitube online, you're set.
Failing my suggestion, I have absolutely nothing else to contribute to this thread.
Do they have mail in your homeland? It sounds like you have some nice guitars back home. Why not just send one over? Otherwise, Gibson type of hollow body would be too limiting for me. Get something with a Humbucker in bridge and a single coil at neck, or a standard Tele if you want twang and put a mini-humbucker in it. Basically, you gotta decide where you want to be on the growl or twang spectrum. Personally, if I had to choose just one guitar, it would be 25.5" scale. Lastly, how about stepping out and getting a 7-string?
The biggest thing to remember about chinese made Casinos is that they suck.
For what it's worth, there's a few HH Teles in the MIM range. I wouldn't necessarily class them as "real" Teles, but they're pretty cool guitars in their own right. There's also the JA-90 thinline with Duncan P-90s.
What about a MiM strat with a humbucker in the bridge very versatile and lighter than a Tele?
What color is the Epiphone? The vintage sunburst is gorgeous, but the red one is fantastic as well.
OK I know this isn't what you asked, but I'm a P90 fan, and I would be looking at the Fender Modern Player guitars with those pickups. I player the thinline deluxe MP tele a while back and really liked it, for both tone and workmanship.
I guess I'd probably say the Casino then. P-90s have a fair bit of beef to their sound and I've always found it easier to thin out a fat tone than to thicken up a thin one. I think a Tele would be more limiting.
I just bought an MIM Tele (Classic Player Baja) and I'm absolutely in love with it, but Epiphone archtops really are fantastic too.
I think basically it comes down to what tones you're after. What do you currently have and do you want to get a similar guitar or explore new territory?
I would vote Telecaster personally. I've never played a casino coupe but I have a Tele and love it. I am Fender biased though!
Both great guitars, buy the one that reflects your sound the best.
