    Does anyone have any info on when the new worn Casinos will land? None of the big box stores have them so guessing the little guys don't either. Got money burning a hole in my pocket :)

    My local store has received and sold several since early February. I even saw one in the used section at my local Guitar Center already. At $350, I was tempted to buy it.

    Check the Epiphone website. They sell direct. Might be an option.

    For what ever reason or reasons Casinos of all kinds seem to be in short supply. Some are sold before they've been listed for 24 hours. Seems like the pipeline got drained and it's taking a while to catch up with demand.

    thomann has a 6-8 wait for those being in stock. Both on the US and UK sites.
    I did find the casino worn in stock at a few of the larger Canadian Retailers. Worth a try. You might find one who would sell to the states.

    It seems like almost all Epis are in short supply. Sweetwater hardly has any in stock these days.

    It's quite possible Epi's popularity is finally catching up with them now that they've diversified their product line even more. IMHO they have to be ranked among the top import brands.

    When I say it's difficult to justify the much higher cost of a Gibson vs a nearly identical Epiphone I know I won't get any resistance to that kind of thinking here. The value is exceptional.

    Let's hope they don't raise prices like some other brands have recently. You can't get a MIM Fender for less than $750 anymore unless it's a Duo-sonic or something. Maybe Squiers have gotten too good.

    Musicians friend just dinged my card for the one I ordered in January 2021. They haven’t emailed me or updated my order status, but they say they don’t run the card until it ships. So it may have shipped.

    My local store, which has had multiple come in and sell over the past three months, listed one on Reverb yesterday.

    Follow up: MF billed me April 9. I got an email saying it shipped on April 19, it arrived today April 22. It’s in great shape, intonation is almost right, some fret buzz here and there, and that sucks cause the bridge is set too high. I’ll work it out over the weekend.
