    I had one for a while. Sounded great, but I couldn't get used to the slim neck.

    A P90 is a good starting-point for every nice guitar.

    I've never met a P-90 that I didn't like.

    Never played one but it's definitely on my 'guitars I need for the general betterment of the planet' list. It's a pretty big list tbh.

    What is it that makes them so great do you think?

    I've had 2 Korean models. One was nice & the other was so so. I also had a Lennon Revolution model. That was a great guitar.

    Since we were talking about Gary Clark Jr...The only thing cooler than Gary C playing a Casino...is Gary playing a red Casino...so pretty!!

    Someday I'll have a turquoise Casino which is just about the prettiest guitar I've ever seen. I don't know how much play it will get because I didn't get on with the Casino neck profile but I'll spend hours gazing on it's lovely chrome and curves.

    Pretty guitars and very lightweight but I find that the neck on my Korean built one seems a little narrow when switching between it and a Gibson Les Paul.

    Had one, loved the P90s but the neck wasn't made for me..oh and the korean QC wasn't that great either...The Casino and the Vox were instant Beatles tone though.Nonetheless I sold it, bought another Gretsch and didn't regret it...

    "Get Back" only sounds right on an Epi Casino.

    I had an "Inspired By John Lennon" model for a few years. Made in China but with Gibson USA P90's as stock. It was the best blues tone I have ever achieved but there was something about it that I never got on with. Possibly the neck profile as others had said - I really like a good chunky neck. I now have a Tokai 335 and love playing that one but I do miss the P90's.

    I'm off to see Gary Clarke Jr tomorrow night. Looking forward to it - I believe he spends more time playing a strat these days after being an SG guy for a couple of years but I still think the Casino was his best sound.
