good casino upgrades?

Recommended Posts

Hey Notes, I love that Natural MIK Casino it has a terrific tone to it unlike the newer ones that tend to be pale and lifeless.

I'm thinking about putting on grovers on my riviera... Do i wan't the nickel or chrome to match with it the best? ANd there seems to be different model, which would fit a riviera without needing to drill? And one more question, i was looking for the roller bridges, but it seems like they measure different, anyone who changed bridge that knows? And which nut is recomended?

I have to agree. I went to the music store expecting to buy a brand new Casino. This one looked so much better than the new ones, it was in excellent condition plus I got it for $425. Irresistible.

 

I got lucky that day.

The Kent Armstrong pups distributed by WD Music Products are designed by Mr. Armstrong, but manufactured by Dong Ho Electronics in the Philippines.

 

Bottom line, the only upgrade you will do to a Made in China Casino are the Grover tuners and the nut? or would you mess with the pots and electronics also?

I replaced my stock tuners with Grover Rotomatics and made a huge difference. Other than that, haven’t done much. Mines 14 years old and sadly electronics are starting to get wonky.
