I have a recent casino coupe. The factory set up was awful, and the pickups were terrible (IMO, some people love them... but they are super hot and dark). Fret work was great, and the basics were sound. It wasn’t hard to set up well at all. I have put a b7 on it, new tuners, new nut, new bridge, new pick ups. I also knocked back the gloss on the finish and sanded off the awful black goop in the f holes. Basically, I found the actual guitar part of it fine - but swapped out everything that could be swapped out. Then again, I am a tinkerer and I bought it specifically to tinker so I’ve been happy with it overall.
