Replacing Casino Electronics (Advisable?)

Recommended Posts

I've been reading through a lot of the Casino posts lately and it got me thinking about changing the electronics.

 

What sort of improvement in tone can I expect? Could I put Gibson P-90's on my Casino?

 

What type of pots and caps should I put?

 

I've been mulling over doing a COMPLETE overhaul on my Casino. I love this guitar so much, it's basically MY signature guitar. It's a 2006 Cherry MIC Casino. I've added a gold Bigsby B7, gold GFS roller bridge and gold Grover Imperials. I want to get it refinished in a CHERRY sunburst.

I am the proud owner of a 2005 MIK dark cherry Casino. I've had it totally modified including: Kluson tuning pegs, the large ivory colored ones; tone pros bridge w/ graphite saddles; bigsby ; new tone and volume pots; new input jack; and new pickups handwound by my friend Ryan Gadow ( Gadow Guitars here in Durham NC ) I now have about 1 K in this guitar and I love it like no other ax. I must say, however, that it was pretty damn good before the mods. The new pickups are lower output giving it a wider dynamic range which, IMO, suites the hollow body better than hotter pups. The bigsby, in addition to looking fantastic, provides a more solid bridge plus it balances out the weight perfectly. As far as input jack, tone and vol., etc., the old ones worked just fine but I like to know that it is as good as it can be. I guess I could have purchased an Elite model for the same $$$, but the mods were lots of fun and I have the guitar I want. Best of luck with your mods, there are few things more satisfying than upgrading an ax you love !!!
