    I had my full size Casino's Pups rewound by Buddha Handwound Custom Pickups. They got quite a bit clearer with a touch of bite. Before they were too hot and dark sounding. I rewired it to '50's style tone control and installed a set of Grover Deluxe Vintage tuners. It's my favorite guitar since I've tweaked it to my taste.

    Lovely guitar and congrats. Question: Is it pronounced coop or coopay? I've heard both on demos.

    Americans say "coop". The Brits say "coopay". :)

    This is mine. A co-worker who’s a wizard with a dremel did the cutout from a set of covers I had laying around. The pickups are some garbage I found on the web. They’ll get upgraded when I get around to buying some better ones. I bought this at one of our “yard sales” without a tailpiece. That’s a full size one from a standard Casino. Works just fine.
