Indeed. And it does Seem to work. Spank and snap abounds on those wound strings. Again, I aint changing NUDDN!
Similar to restringing a stock Bigsby, you put a piece of masking tape over the cup/slots with the ball ends once they're in the tailpiece (but before you've strung it to tension) so that they don't fall out. On the Frequensator, three strings at a time. It's a bit wonky, but worth it (in my opinion) for the sound/playability of the tailpiece.can you explain the tape thing? not familiar.
As a lifelong Frequensator fanboi, I will say that if the end caps are loose, they will rattle. Happened to me once, I tightened it, and never had the problem again. There aren't a lot of places on this tailpiece to cause issues, which (in my opinion) is why they work so well. Less bits to muffle the strings. In all honesty, a good simple tailpiece like one off an es125 also sounds great, but the differing string lengths for wound and unwound strings is pretty great.Any idea what parts of your bridge came loose? Thank you.
Ha, agreed. Finally got an easy/consistent way to do it a couple months ago (Imgur) but still not quite as seemless/quick and I’m also wondering why the change.Since the admins changed the way you post photos, which worked perfectly, I can't figure out how to do it, so you'll have to look at the Epiphone website to view these guitars.
awesome totally get it. Much appreciated.Similar to restringing a stock Bigsby, you put a piece of masking tape over the cup/slots with the ball ends once they're in the tailpiece (but before you've strung it to tension) so that they don't fall out.

I got both the Riviera and blue worn Casino, and they're both awesome, but the Casino pickups are not what I would consider acceptable. I ordered a set of Wildkat/Casino Lollar pickups that I think will make this one of the most "bang for the buck" guitars that I've got. Epiphone is killing it, for sure.Thank you! My good friend picked up the worn olive drab Casino earlier this week. He brought it over for me to check out, and it was a killer guitar. Right out of the box, no nothing. Played and sounded awesome. The worn finish might not be for everyone, but I liked it. Neck is kind of thin, but again, it felt really good. Lots of meaty sounds to be had, lots of power. And it's really inexpensive. Someone at Epiphone got on the ball with these things.
