    I have one with a Bigsby & no more tuning issues than my Gibsons or Fenders.

    Why didn't he change the Tuners?

    The Casino is a well balanced & well built Guitar. It's very light weight which is a huge plus IMO.

    I've played most of the alternatives suggested here & while most are very nice Guitars they fail at one or more of the points listed above. For that reason I ruled them out.

    I have 3. The Ltd. Edition MIC with Bigsby (Sunburst), the IBJL John Lennon Revoltion (Natural) & the Ltd. Edition 50th Anniv. 1961 with Tremotone (Sunburst). I plan on buying an Elitist in the near future. Casino's are probably my favorite Guitar as they check all the boxes & are so versatile.

    That said, I'm also still trying to find the right Tele for me... So far none of the ones check all the boxes for me..
