1987-1998 Epiphone Casino
A Prototype During Terada Era
According to the previous owner, he acquired the guitar in 1991. Judging from the date and the features of the guitar, it matches Terada-made orange label which was manufactured only between 1987 and 1998 in Japan. I strongly suspect this guitar was a prototype or custom designed Casino.
Speaking of the condition, the guitar is still in excellent shape, all parts functioning ok, frets redressed once and no buzz heard at all over any fret. Action is properly set and I feel very comfortable for playing the guitar. The only noticeable issue is the strap pin on the bottom was slightly moved from its tailpiece end position.
This light-weighted, lovely and mint axe is shipping worldwide to the lucky owner with a gigbag.
