Epiphone Casino, 2003 regular line, made in Korea.
The major differences from the higher-end Japanese-made CASINO models (Elite and Elitist) are the position of the neck joint (17F joint) and the body back paint (the back side is also painted sunburst).
Compared to the recent regular line made in China, the arch on the top seems to be nicer, but it seems less three-dimensional than the Japanese-made models.
Also, although it may be a characteristic of this particular piece, the reddish tint of the sunburst is almost invisible, and the black area seems to be large.
I'd like to say mid Beatles sound...but I've tried many things, but I can't get the hardness of the Beatlesque tone ^^;
