Yes the Casino! It's the only hollow body in epiphone catalog with P90's. The others are semi's I believe...
A Gary Clark Jr Casino with Bigsby just passed by my place with his owner over Christmas. I would go for that one if I was in the market for a budget hollow body...

Zen beat me to it but the Aria TA is a good 335 copy, I've had one for ages and it's a solid guitar for the money.

P90 size hums would fit in nicely, or maybe add some decent wood surrounds to reduce the mount width. I think AllParts did some nice sets at one point.

Knowing Ivan, he's going to be after something pretty specific, so we'll need to wait until he's around again and can spend some time conversing.

My havent you lot been busy! I have been (and still am) ill. Just starting to come out o fit as the prescribed meds start kicking in and... I got bloody GOUT!!!

FWIW I love my ES335 especially now I can play it through my Fishman Loudbox Artist amp! A match made in heaven.
But I have a yen for something with a deeper hollow body & one or two P90s. Getting even deeper into bayou territory these days and there are some things I cant do on any of the fender-y guitars or the Gibson. I did have a look at the Godin with 2 P90s but cant find a decent used one. Nick Barraclough has a rather fine ES225, which is what got me started on this particular quest. Trying hard not to lumber myself with a lot of work that I am ill suited to with one of those pitbull kits...

They're not particularly tricky (i made one after all), but they are pretty time consuming. But i guess you know that already. :)

I have one of these and love it: http://www.epiphone.com/Products/Archto ... gster.aspx

This is a highly underrated guitar.

Wonderful. Great tone. Very versatile. Resonates and feels great to play. Pickups are outstanding.

Lucky me. I have an ES295-alike on its way to me, which is one of the two possibles I was hoping for. Stupid cheap p
rice but with a guaranteed return policy if I cant get on with it. More when NGD arrives...

An ES295 is a lovely tool. Hopefully the 'alike' will deliver the goods :)

emailed today telling me it is on its way. Frustrating as I have 2 gigs this week and it wont arrive until too late.

Presumably you didn't pay extra for next day delivery, or is this some private eBay purchase?

Looks like I got conned - disappearing chinese firm fronted in the UK. Fortunately I paid with a credit card so come Monday I should be back in business STILL looking.

I still haven`t found an ES295 alike that I can afford but still rather fancy the Peerless version.

None of you chaps looking to move a deep-ish hollow body guitar on?

Possibly a bit too Jazzy, and would probably need different pickups fitting but but Andertons are currently doing these at an end of run price. So overall probably too costly. But have a look anyway. It comes with a hard case.

Or this on reverb. Got humbucker sized P90s fitted by the look of it, not the stated humbuckers. https://reverb.com/item/18776021-peerless-tonemaster-orange-high-gloss
