You mean Chinese copy of American Epiphone Casino?
Equipment:
I have guitars, amps, pedals, cables, various other things and a strong affinity for short signature lines. . .

We all know a Chinese (or Korean) Epiphone is not a Gibson. Poor? It serves its function well.

I have a Qingdao Casino. I bought it because I didnít want to gig anymore with my going-on-sixty-year-old ES-125TDC - itís getting a bit delicate. The 125 is an amazing guitar; it sounds huge. I didnít expect the Casino to measure up, and of course it didnít. How could it? It hasnít been vibrated for half a century.

But I viewed the Epi as a platform and changed everything on it. Vintage-voiced Fralin P90s, pots, switch, jack, nut, bridge, tuners. Everything except the trapeze, the bridge bushings, and the frets.

Iím looking at those bushings ....

Does it measure up now? No. But close, or close enough. On stage in a bar with a drummer and you wonít hear much difference. Itís fun to play, it looks good, it sounds good, Iím not plunged into deep depression when I ding it, nobody is going to steal it; I donít have to spend my breaks wondering if my guitar will be on stage when I get back. And it doesnít have a Brazilian fingerboard, so I donít have to worry about crossing borders with it (which I do often, living where I do - Germany/Switzerland/France).

It sounds wonderful through a tweed for old-school blues. T-Bone, early Freddie - no problem.

Itís not a 330. Or a 125 (basically the same thing). But itís pretty darn good. Even the poly doesnít bug me - but my hands donít sweat much.

All you HAVE to do is put reasonable pickups in it instead of the crazy overwound stocks.

I bought the pickguard on EBay, C-Rocker Custom Guitars shop.

My Epi Casino was mase in 2015 so I order this model : https://www.ebay.com...8.c100290.m3507

Buy a 5 ply pickguard with 60° wide bevel.

Choose the correct model : http://stores.ebay.c...+5ply+pickguard

I'm doing the same with my ES 335 Pro
had to order the pickguard off Reverb from a seller that makes a 5 ply version specific for the current Epiphone 335 Pro,
I ordered it without the hole drilled for the bracket because I want to glue the bracket on.

I had ordered a Bosco 335 style pg but it doesn't fit, is 3 ply, and looks cheap

I prefer the no-screw look, too. My Casino wears a 3 ply Terrapin guard.

I own a 1967 Casino E230TD and have been searching for a vintage original or replacement pick guard that fits...including (preferably) period correct guard mounting hardware.
Anyone know where I should be looking to find such a thing?? I also need the wiggle stick....but no luck thus far finding any of this stuff. Help appreciated.
