I bought it second hand in the US and had it shipped to where I live last year. Alot of the boutique pu makers besides Lollar have them, so check their websites. Then adjust the poles to balance the volume between o strings. The neck on mine is definitely fat - bigger than a standard Casino. May 3, 8. The only thing I've done to the guitar is put a shim from lollar under the back P90 to raise it up a hair. I have one - no real complaints - sounds and plays great for the money.

Got this puppy for a sweet deal at GC. The only one they had. Number of 1, Never a big Epi fan but this one has stolen my heart! This is my first P90 guitar and I couldn't be happier.
Sounds great acoustic too. Neck is tapered 60s but very comfortable and substantial Only thing I would change is to add a bone nut. I lucked out because the guitar tech at GC was stashing it for himself so it was already beautifully set up. Felt kind of bad ganking it from under him. Then I played it and it was every man for himself. Very impressed with this thing.
TeleTex82 , Sep 23, Sep 23, 2. Tone to the bone bro. I just took delivery of a Wildkat ltd. Just not as ballsy at all as the Casino. Pickups are quiet though where as the Gibson's are a tad more noisy but not much. But way way better sound at least clean through my V Sep 23, 3. Congrats, i love Casinos Sep 23, 4. I played one of these a couple of days ago, and found the sounds unbalanced, because the neck pickup is very close to the strings and the bridge pickup is farther away.
There was a big loss of volume as a result when you flipped the bridge pickup on by itself. I guess you could have the bridge pickup moved up with a large wooden shim underneath, but that looks like crap.

I'm sure this varies. The pickups are great, the playability is excellent, action first rate, it came properly set up. I've thought some about taking some of the shine off the finish with steel wool but I get distracted every time I start playing it.
I use it with a Victoria Ivy League and they're an excellent match. Gris Gris Man , May 2, May 3, 7. Are they still available? MF doesn't list them anymore. May 3, 8. So I have been pouring over the threads reading up on Casinos. One other question is regarding the neck. Went out on my lunch break and played the standard MIC version.
It was what I thought it would be, but the neck as everybody has pointed out was pretty small. I've read that the '61 is a little "fuller" - nut width being 1. Those with this '61 AND a standard do you feel a difference? Also, been comparing the Inspired by John Lennons as well. Seems that these necks are a little more "fuller" as well? Satin finish and not the heavy poly finish, which is a plus for me. Please add more Casino guys. May 3, 9. I have one - no real complaints - sounds and plays great for the money.
The neck on mine is definitely fat - bigger than a standard Casino. May 4, I have one - bought new. Gibson P90s and electronics are really good and trouble free. Fret tops felt rough although the finish on the fretboard and neck was perfect. Nut was poorly installed. I polished the frets myself , removed the nut and removed some excess glue and set the height and distance to the 1st fret also myself. Also and more importantly, since setting the distance to the first fret correctly this is the only Gibson product that I have owned that the open chords are correctly in tune.
I'm keeping it - incredible value for the money. SPSurgeon , May 4,
