  1. Hi, I considering buying a Casino for myself this Xmas. I have 2 questions: 1. How is the bridge fixed to the guitar on Casinos? Usually bridges mounted on post require solid wood. How do they anchor the bridge on Casinos? 2. I've viewed a lot of 'Vintage sunburst' Casinos. Some finishes are Black --> Brown --> Natural and others are Black -->red -->natural. Which is the 'Vintage Sunburst' on the current standard Casinos? Which models & years have which finish? Thanks!
  2. O.K. you've convinced me! I'm gonna buy a Carvin!
  3. I recently purchased a used Masterbilt EF-500RCCE from MF. I absolutely love this guitar BUT there's a strange springy rattle when the open B string is played, or when ever any B is played. This really stands out when playing the second string 12th fret harmonic. Anyway, I found that when I plugged into the Nanomag jack the rattling stopped. I pulled the jack out to have a look and found that when I tapped on the side of the jack with my fingernail I could hear the springy rattle. Unfortunately this isn't a simple jack. It appears to be some type of mono dual switching jack (See below): http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fender-0056055000-Jack-Output-Fishman-Switch-/171269864178?pt=Guitar_Accessories&hash=item27e07abaf2 My questions are: 1. Has anyone else reported this problem with the EF-500RCCE? 2. If I stick a plug into the Nanomag jack to stop this rattle, will it drain the battery? 3. Can this be replaced with a simple single switchjack? (i.e. does the output wire to the 'mix out' jack have to be grounded when the NanoMag jack is used?. BTW- this jack has 'CHUNGSEN' stamped on the surface of the plastic casing.
