Happy 30th Birthday to my Casino

I bought this 1983 Epiphone Casino in Ochanomizu, Tokyo, in October of 2006. I just realized by the serial number that it was made in October, 1983. That makes it 30 years old this month! Great guitar.

If you think that you've seen it before, you probably have. I wrote most of the original Wikipedia article on Matsumoku and added 2 pics of my Casino. (And I really need to update the article.)

Photo#4: Pic I took in 2006 and posted to Wikipedia under Matsumoku.
Photo #5: Shimokura Second Hand Guitars, Ochanomizu, Tokyo, Oct, 2006 (where I bought it.)

This Casino isn't stock, but the mods were done before I bought it. It has Grover 108C tuners, a Gotoh nylon saddle bridge, and a Gibson ES-345 tailpiece. It plays beautifully, stays in tune for hours, and sounds great. It's one of the best guitars that I've ever owned.
