Casino Coupe Project Idea

Recommended Posts

I have a Casino Coupe and am very happy with it. The size, the feel, the weight and the playability. The 339 size fits me like a glove. The Gibson version is an ES-390 (full hollow body like the Coupe) - way out of my price range. I was wondering what a mini-humbucker version would be like. There a Gibson ES-390 version with mini-humbuckers - also way out of my price range. If I picked up another Casino Coupe (preferably used), could mini-hums be installed with not too much damage?

 

I haven't been able to find out anything about the pots in a Coupe. Would they be 250/300K like other single coil guitars? Would I have to upgrade to 500K? Whatever, I would have an "Epiphone ES390" at an affordable price. Thanks

The P-90 routs might be too large for standard mini-hums --- in which case you'd need to find minibuckers in a full-size humbucker package. I think GFS has some, probably other makers do too.
