View Full Version : Casino Owners--changing tuners?
06-07-2008, 09:02 AM
I know Kluson is what a lot of people have used, but will I need to drill new holes? Just want to change out the tuners for a better quality tuner.
Also, anyone change pickups? What pickups did you buy? You like?
I have two Casinos that I want to upgrade after buying an Elitist Casino.
Any recommendations on how you've improved your Casinos?

I'm borrowing infiniteposse's Korean-made Casino right now and it's really a nice guitar. I like it considerably better than the 90-91 Gibson 335 Studio I previously owned, surprising given the low cost of the Casino. I've been thinking of picking up a Casino, but I've managed to fight off the gas as I'm really a Fender guy at heart. The tuners actually seem pretty decent; I don't think I'd feel the need to replace them (if it were mine).
Can you share how your Elitist version compares in sound/feel/quality of finish compared to your other Casinos?

Bump in case anyone has any thoughts on this. Thanks

My elitist definitely has better tuners. Definitely has better pickups. Seems more solidly built. Just better hardware all around.
I just love the necks on these guitars, and the sound. An Elitist is definitely a step up from a regular Casino. Definitely one of my favorite, if not my favorite, guitars. I'm a Tele guy all the way, but I love these Casinos.
