  1. I would love to be able to afford a Elitist Csino Unfrotunatley out of my reach @ the moment and don't come across them much here in the Uk. Bought my MIK 06 Casino off ebay sent from Us marked as Used but got it @ a Fair price worked out at £250 GB pounds so compared to £550 was well happy. Have sinced changed the Pu to Kent Armstrongs , Tuners to Genuine Klusons replaced the Bigsby to a Nickel Trapieze and most recentley the Bridged to a Gotho prob spent a extra £200 on it but I am very pleased with it now. Still would get a Elitist or better still a original 60's model if my lottery numbers come in. One question if any one can help why do they use Groovers on the Elistist I personaly think they don't quite look right on the Casino If they are going for the original spec thought Klusons would be fitted? Respect to you all Mark

  5. Hello All This is my first post although I have to admit to lurking for a while You have been a great source of Info. Many thanks Thought I would add my Casino I have a 2007 MIK custom shop model, I purchased it off ebay from the USA it was marked Used, I have removed the Bigsby sorry but can't get away with these and it takes me too long to change strings especially when gigging. So I added a Nickel Trapieze changed the Tuners for Genuine Kluson Nickel Plated and had the Pick Ups changed to Kent Armstrong P90's. Fantastic guitar I am looking to add a Cherry Casino to my Collection. Full Epi collection is 2007 Casino In VS, AJ 45 63 Re issue, Epiphone Dot in Cherry and a Dot in Vs whch I have just sold to try and Finance the new Casino. Also have Gibson SG special with Vibrola Tailpiece added and A Rickenbacker 330 all Black inc Scratch plate and name plate.
