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
