I adore my Casino Worn (bought it brand new for $399, can't beat it!) but the tuners and buzzing bridge are both things to instantly swap. I picked up a pair of relic'd Kluson tuners and a Gotoh bridge, and then I also faux-relic'd the pickup covers (was gonna do a more thorough job but the covers are welded to the pickups) using an abrasive scrub from Home Depot, good enough to scratch away all the shine and leave a really nice aged look. And of course, before I even got to the parking lot after buying this thing I had the pick guard removed because I considered it both pointless and an eye sore. I then picked up a Frequensator tail piece because why not? What I didn't factor in is that the Casino has Bridge/pickups placement much closer to the tail end than the neck end ala Sheraton, Riviera, etc, so the high 3 strings don't have much room between leaving the Frequensator and meeting the bridge, but thankfully there's enough room to fan the strings out and situate them in the bridge grooves without any slippage. I also had to drill in all new holes on the bottom of the guitar for this new tailpiece. It's not pretty, but it's drilled in super tight/firm and that's all that matters! The Frequensator was old and already relic'd up, rusty screws, you name it. Exactly what I'm going for. At 400 dollars, I basically am treating this guitar as a project guitar to kinda mess around with and try new weird things. When trying to get the old tuners out, the metal 'rings' inside the headstock were very snug (possibly glued?) and the Kluson tuners were slightly bigger and wouldn't fit unless I could get these metal rings out, so I use the new tuner and pushed as hard as I could until it would pop out the previous metal ring. As you can see on the B-string peg, when the ring popped out it took a chunk of wood/paint with it. Oh well! To me these nicks, scrapes and dings just add to the look I'm going for, which is essentially distressed and beat up, so I didn't sweat the damage I caused while doing this little makeover. One last thing: The Epiphone Casino is the greatest guitar design ever, period. I am a die hard semi-hollow guy, own a number of Sherrys, a Gibson e-355, an Epi Joe Bonamassa E-355, etc.. but these cheap-o Casinos are the most fun guitars to play. And when you have a $400 beater guitar that you're not scared to get a little reckless with, it makes playing it so much more enjoyable. Can't explain it, it just feels great to play this thing. And it looks cool too, at least to me! I play some old weird/spooky post-punk meets Roy Orbison on LSD type stuff, so I wanted a guitar that looks like it was dragged out from a mausoleum. I highly recommend the Casino Worn. Again, no idea why it is $200 less than the standard Casino. From what I can tell there is no difference other than the finish? I love the stock pickups and have no desire to change those out, but the original tuners were a dread (I suspect the flimsy trapeze tail piece contributed to the awful tuning issues). Thankfully since I put on the new tailpiece and tuners, I haven't had to tune this thing once. And while the buzzing of the bridge wasn't being picked up on recordings, it was still a nuissance when playing unplugged. Why Epi continues to use these buzzing bridges when there are so many better options at the same price is anyone's guess.
