Casino specs for inside guitar


Recommended Posts

I posted some time back and asked whats the specifications were for the epiphone casino pots that I wanted to replace and I did get some response but it was not certain .

 

Here are the specs for the pots -

500k linear for volume

500k audio for tone

 

Both are short shafts

 

The cap is a .022uf

 

Just thought I would pass this along if someone is maybe thinking of doing an upgrade and wanted to be sure it would not effect the tone .

I would kind of like to know also.

 

Single coils like the P90s in theory should be 250k pots.

 

I know Gibson used to use 350k pots on their guitars instead of 500k for HBs.

 

Based on that, then the Gibson 330's and the Casino's in the 60s built in the Kalamazoo plant either used the 350k pots or 250k pots. Anyone know the answer? The new Lennon Casinos built to the same specs should have the same pots.

 

The new stock line Casinos may have 500k's. I do know my MIK burst I had the bad switch replaced I had them put in CTS 250k pots at the same time.

 

I never thought to ask the tech what he took out. Before the swap my MIK burst and MIK natural sounded different anyway: the burst more electric and the natural more woody. They still sound that way so I can't compare tone based on the pot swap in my two.

 

Thanks in advance to the guys who know.
