I'd like to make it the best it possibly can be i. Does anyone have any ideas on the best pickups for this type of guitar hollowbody --or Ptype pickups that give off less feedback than the stock pickups? Any other suggestions for cool mods that would make this guitar shine, yet keep its identity as a Beatles-esque hollowbody?
Thanks in advance! Rock on, my friends.

Messages 11, I would send those pickups to Zhangliqun for rewind first. He can advise you on what winds and magnets would work best with that particular guitar. Then, spiphone they're out, add a sound post, which can really help with the feedback. I usually put in new pots on cheaper instruments I changed to Gibson dogears on my Casinos, which made a positive difference.
I also used K CTS pots and a switchcraft toggle and input jack.
I never tried the soundpost, but these seem to work on Gretsch hollowbodies really well. Plays like if not a bit better than my '67 I'm not sh! In fact I probably play the Cassy more because it's more acoustical. It's a fine, fine instrument. The P90s are, for epiphonee money, the best PUP out there. Oh yeah, and for shits and giggles I spent 5 bucks on one of those rubber switch grommets just like Mr Lennon had.
That, I have to admit, made no difference in the tone. I just got my casino and have that "I need to mod something" itch there. I don't really understand the function of pots and stuff. Epiphone uses cheaper parts in the guitars like switches and pots.
Upgrading to good quality CTS pots will make a tone difference. If doing a Casino you want K pots. The guys can correct me here but on the Epiphone HB guitars I think they vest k pots while Gibson uses k.Rizk Casino is here to give you the chance to Epiphone Casino Coupe Mods net up to £ + 50 free spins over 5 days, for a truly fabulous start to casino life.

May 18, · The only pressing mod (to my mind) involves the tuners. The Klusons cost $ Even if I do end up doing the tailpiece and bridge mod, that will still only cost $ So: $ guitar + $89 case + (at worst) $ worth of mods vs an Elitist (now up to $ at Sweetwater! casinocanli.co).
Curious what are the electronic value of the caps you had changed and also the pots rated at and any csaino kind other that i need to know czsino I order the pots. What did you use cloth wiring and if so what guage. Any other specifics for the other mods you indicated Im curious as to what I need to get and want to be its the right specs and so on.
Can't comment on the pots modx such. I'll replace them if they break only. Mine's a '96 and still stock. One of my 4 main guitars I play out with. Anyhow hell yes you can cut through the mix Then again IMO no such thing as a "only" rhythm guitar, but I know what you mean though.
To me it sounds the best with some grit. Actually IMO the Casino sounds good no matter what you throw at it, and very very stage friendly Never tried that one.

I tried a bunch of others though, but always come back to my old TS9 and EQ pedal. I guess I've used the Tube Screamer for so long it is more of a familiarity thing rather than being better or worse. In terms of tone it seemed to be clarity in mine. My old pots were scratchy when I turned them. My stock selector switch would also cut in and out the PUs and I had to mess with it to stop the guitar from cutting in and out.
I keep my tone pots full and the treble PU on full and roll the neck PU in and out as a tone control. Since the new pots no more scratching and seems more clarity of tone. As far a rhythm or lead what are you trying to do?
It is a guitar and does either. If you are trying to play metal through a cranked Marshall stack then it is the wrong guitar for that use. It is going to feedback and is not going to have the cutting tone of any solid body guitar if that is what you are asking. Oh I don't know about that byrds. Other than feel and sound they all give me the same cutting edge My Hofner is becoming my favorite to go to, but I think you already know that.
Then again I guess it depends how you set up your rig and what you play. Why I didn't mention it not being to good for metal type music Guess I shouldn't take such things for granted Casino Raf, How does your Verythin play? I've always been intrigued with them, I primarily play either a Casino or Riviera and the Verythin is similar to For or a Sheraton.
Oh, it's just a great guitar. When I was shopping for a semi I was looking for something different than the usal types I seem to end up getting. I walked into a store and this guitar sitting on a stand just caught my eye. Didn't know much about Hofner guitars, but all it took was very little best trying it out and that was all I needed to know.
The epiphone buckers aren't quite humbucker sounding, or what I'm use to, but very good sounding. Much louder than the '57s on my ' The controls, mods tone and vol.
Drop or raise a notch or two on them and you can hear the change immediately. I can roll off the tone and not get muddy or boomy at all. I'm constantly playing with the controls of my guitar, old habit, so I'm very very pleased with how these respond. Amazing the different sounds I can get out of this guitar by just turning a knob just a little.
Something you might not like is that it has a long scale Not an issue for me but I though that was kind of strange on a semihollow. From cheking at the Hofner site they all seem to be the same. Or at least the MIG are I've seen the newer versions of the Verythin sporting full size buckers They also have the Asian version, a CT Contemporarywhich is just as good for a lot less cash.
Wish I would have known about them first. Although I belive they didn't come till a while after I got mine.
I got a real good deal on mine so no big deal Anyhow the CT sports full size humbuckeers and I belive they come with a short scale. Byrds has got one so he might be able to give you more on them. I do know he seems to be very happy with his
