Epiphone For Every Stage

[GEAR] Selling high end gear because you prefer your cheapest one

So I have that USA Gibson les Paul I bought used few years ago, and I was pretty cool with it until recently.
I played an epiphone casino in a shop, made in China, worth maybe half the price of the Gibson. But i dont know, she really had a thing, so I took her back home. It's been some time now and I can say I really enjoy it far more than my Les Paul, at a point where I decided to sell the Gibson.
I saw a lot of people on this sub wanting to upgrade, but I somewhat "downgraded" and I'm happier than ever with it !
Have you already had some similar experience where you ended up selling high end gear because you prefered some "cheaper" one ?

What Jazz/Blues guitar should I get? (Semi-hollow archtop)

Hey guitar I'm looking to upgrade from the beginner guitar I've been rocking for a few years. I really like the double cut out style and have been considering a few models, maybe you can give me some advice. I was thinking about an Epiphone Casino or the Gretsch G5122DC Electromatic. I feel like the Gretsch is better then the Casino, but maybe you could recommend a model I've not even heard of! Thanks

[QUESTION] Are the modern day Chinese Epiphone Casinos any good?

I've had a growing hankering to own a semi-acoustic and an Epiphone Casino has always been 'on the table' after watching every bit of old Beatles footage I can find on Youtube.
I don't have a guitar store nearby that has any Epiphones in stock to try out, so before I drive for 90minutes to give one a go, has anyone got any experience with the current guitars rolling off the Epiphone assembly line in the last few years? Can you give me the highlights and lowlights?
I keep thinking 'Epiphone were good enough for the Beatles, they'll be good enough for me', but then, 60's Epiphones weren't built in China. I've heard good things in general over the last few years about the quality of far eastern guitars but I've not actually played anything other than my American Strat for the last twelve.
Are modern Casinos up to their namesake's reputation?

Epiphone Elitist Casino p90 Pickup Replacement [QUESTION]

Hey guys, I recently stumbled upon a basically new Epiphone Elitist Casino body/neck stripped of all of it's hardware for a really dumb low price of $300. I've always wanted one of these so I snatched it up. Not my first rebuild, won't be my last I'm sure.
The only part I am having difficulty deciding on/sourcing are the pickups. I have played both an Elitist and one of the LTD John Lennon 1965's and those Gibson USA P90's sounded very cool. I'm not looking for the most aggressive tone of all time, but I also want plenty of mid-range and umph (not necessarily vintage). I can't seem to find a source fo the Gibson USA P90's anywhere. Seems like what I want are the Lollar p90's. But read on...
Due to the metric Japanese measurements plus the Epiphone/ES 330's unique cavity and top curvature, nobody seems to sell a direct aftermarket drop in. There is only one pickup set I've found that is drops-in by Kent Armstrong. I can't find a single video or review of them anywhere. Not outrageous price ($120), but too much for the risk imho. I'd never even heard of them until I started looking so I'm apprehensive.
The pickups everyone raves about either the Seymore Duncan Antiquities ($230+ for a set) or the Lollar p90's that already have my attention ($230+ for a set). Surprisingly the GFS p90 pops up a lot as being pretty great, for only $70 for the set. p90's are easy and relatively cheap to adjust as you can swap magnets in seconds, so that GFS set is tempting as hell. However none of these are direct drop in replacements. They would require drilling new holes, or shims, or both. Which I am not totally against.
As a final third option, several people offer rewinding services on p90's. I could grab a cheap ass set of the china Epiphone imports for $30 direct, and then pay somebody to rewind them properly. Lollar charges $230 for that, so it's basically the cost of a new set that I could then drop-in. I've found another indie guy that will do it for $90, to Lollar's specs. I just don't know if it's a good idea to start from such a crappy base.
Anyone have any experience or guidance for me? Thank you!

A small tour of Epiphone's Qingdao factory in China.

Doing some Googling, and stumbled on this page. I play a Casino, and was interested in getting a little more info.
Wanted to share because I found it quite interesting!
And what are your thoughts on made in China guitars from that past 5 years? From what I've read, QC has gone up dramatically. My Casino is a 2012 model, and I've got no complaints.
