Epiphone Casino Archtop Hollowbody ... - Replay Guitar

[Gear] My three Matsumoku guitars with my Helix. Love me some wood grain!

These are my three main guitars, a 1981 "Austin", a 1979 Vantage VS650, and a 1974 Epiphone Casino

Guitar 1: My main guitar is the 1981 "Austin". Austin is in quotations because it's not actually an Austin. I went through their catalogs from the 70s, 80s, and 90s and couldn't find a match for this guitar, as well as the logo font not matching any of their other logo. That said, this is my favorite guitar. It originally had four knobs and just the pickup selector, but I did a few modifications. I actually got this because I wanted a backup for the Vantage, but I ended up falling in love with it, so it is now my main.
Guitar 2: The Vantage VS650 was my first Matsumoku guitar, and it was the first time I was truly happy with my sound. It has the same wiring as the "Austin", but the switches and knobs are in different places. Basically, it's the prototype for my perfect guitar.
Guitar 3: The Epiphone Casino was my most recent grab. I saw it posted for sale locally, and I immediately knew I needed to get it. A little backstory on it, Epiphone moved their production to the Matsumoku factory in the early 70s, and made some changes to their guitars. This is only a Casino by name. It has humbuckers as opposed to the classic Casino P90s, and the neck is bolt on. That said, this thing SINGS. The neck pickup is super warm and full of sustain. The bridge pickup isn't working properly, but I have yet to really dig into that problem. I'll get to it.
Helix: I have so much to say about the Helix, but I'm not gonna get super into that right now (feel free to ask questions about it though). I love it, it does everything I need, and it's super practical for me.

Pics Here!
Rare 96 Epiphone Casino Metallic Black Hollow Body Guitar. $850 + Shipping
Rare 1996 Epiphone Casino Metallic Black (MB) Sparkle Hollow Body Guitar MIK Peerless Korea P90's
Up for sale is my Epiphone Casino hollow body electric guitar with an incredibly rare and beautiful metallic black finish. I have not seen another Casino in this color! The metallic finish is subtle in darker lighting but really shines through in brighter settings. The second picture was taken at sunset outside to really show the sparkle finish.
The guitar was made in 1996 at the very reputable Peerless factory in Korea. This 22 year old Casino is in great condition and sounds fantastic! There are a few small surface scratches and a few tiny dings, but nothing too noticeable. The frets are in great shape with very little wear. It is fully stock and equipped with two P-90 pickups. The guitar also comes with an original fitted Epiphone hardshell case.
You will have a tough time finding another Casino in this finish and in this great of condition. Don't miss out on this rare guitar! This item is sold As-Described, would prefer local pick up, but willing to arrange shipping.
Pics Here!
Edit: I believe I'm allowed to post this Reverb link because I have other descriptive text/pics in the post, but if I'm wrong I'm happy to edit. Here's a Reverb link to the sale. It's marked a little higher on there because they take a cut--would obviously rather sell to a Redditor! I've got some decent karma on my Reddit account, so you can tell I'm not a new user or burner account.
Edit 2: Item is now SOLD. Thank you!

[DISCUSSION] D'Angelico Crazy Deals Recently: Is It A Good Guitar?

So I picked up the Premier DC in November when it was on crazy sale at Guitar Center, kind of on a whim since I didn't have a hollow body. And I have to say, I've been impressed!
Quality Control:
I had one issue, the pots were not tightened completely and spun. As far as setup goes, I have not had to make any adjustments. Not a single one. That's pretty incredible for a brand new guitar, and this was still in plastic so no tech had touched it. I mean, I'm really knit picky about this stuff, and I have been really impressed. The frets are flat filed, not rounded, but that's to be expected. It's shocking for a $350 guitar.
Build Quality:
I feel like this is separate from quality control and setup. The guitar is solid. Feels better than the Ibanez Artcore in the same price range, about on par with a good Epiphone, definitely doesn't quite feel up to Gibson but it shouldn't. The construction has some points I'm not a particular fan of, like the three piece neck and the pots/switch are not very robust. In the future when I feel like getting out the fishing line I might replace the pots and wiring, though there are no real issues.
This thing sounds amazing. Way better than my friend's Epiphone Casino. Feels very classic rock in its tonal characteristics. You can really feel the sound and lean into the distorting harmonics with a pushed tube amp. It feels super natural and the controls are decent. Tone pots are wrong, I think, and get muddy as you roll off. Probably needs different caps. I really like these pickups, though. I guess the sound is close to the Gibson 59s, maybe? Something along those lines.
Other stuff:
It came with a pretty nice gig bag, it's pretty light overall but doesn't do the neck dive thing, and the headstock is really a sight to behold. I don't know how I feel about it, yet, but that little crown is hilarious.
Just to point it out, the one without F holes is up on Musician's Friend for $350 right now. That's a crazy good deal if you're into it. Mine is the same guitar but with F holes, and I would buy this one in a heartbeat.
For the sub $1000 bracket I think this is a real contender, and I love the sheer number of options available. I'm super happy with the double cutaway and wine color, but the SC in White is gorgeous, too. At $750 I would have a hard time with things like the Hagstrom and higher end Epiphones sitting there. But at $350? Dude, there's no competition.
What do you guys think?

[GEAR] NGD My new Martin DRS1

I recently purchased a new Martin DRS1. I wanted to upgrade from my Takamine GS 330 that I had for a little over a decade. I'm currently recording an album with a friend and was wanting an acoustic to play some duo gigs and singesongwriter nights. This guitar had the built in Fishman Somitone so that was a plus.
I also played/considered Taylor 110, 210, and a used 410. None of these models had the bass I was looking for. I already have a Baby Taylor, so I wanted something on the other end of the spectrum. I also checked out the Martin DRS2 with the sitka spruce top and D15m. The D15m came closest to beating out the DRS1, it had a little more projection, but I didn't feel like the jump in price was worth it.
What sold me on the DRS1 was the range of sound it produced. It has that Martin bass, but also a really nice high end sparkle. It also has a jangly feel to it that I love for the singer-songwriter type stuff that I do. I've already recorded a couple songs with it and it sounds great. The sapele body is beautiful and has a really nice smell to it. I was hesitant regarding the Richlite fingerboard, but it plays great and feels really nice. The TKL hard case included was an added bonus. I got it at Guitar Center during the Presidents' Day sale so after taxes I spent a little under $700, which I thought was a good deal.
I also included pictures of my Epiphone Casino and Baby Taylor in the album.
