I have an Epi Casino, had it for years. Sounds great, but the strings are a bit scraggly. They feel really loose, theyre tuned up to pitch and the set-up (action, truss rod, etc) was done professionally. But when I play, the strings feel like there is a lot of slack on 'em. The sound and the pitch are fine, no warble what-so-ever. But it still feels like there's a lot of slack on 'em. Ive tried many different brands of string, both wound and unwound G's.

From what I understand jazz guitars (which the Casino certainly qualifies as), most jazz guitars were designed for heavier gauge, rounder core, flat wound. I was thinking of trying that for my next re-stringing.

Or What can I do to fix this?

Sounds like you want higher gauge (thicker) strings. You couldn't really fix it unless you made the scale length longer by resetting the neck and bridge. Do you know what kind of strings were put on it?

This is totally personal preference, but I like .11's on 24.75" in E Standard.

What string gauge do you currently have on your Casino? And what kind of music are you trying to play? What tuning are you in, E standard?

I got it strung with D'Addario .10's (wound G). I mostly play 80's pop-rock, folk, and jazz. I use standard tuning.

Scale length DEFIIITELY can make a difference, but it's too much to be scale difference. And yes, I have enough experience to feel differences in scale lengths.

You could definitely try .11's and see how they feel. Thats what I would do if I were you if your current strings are too loose. You'll probably have to set up the intonation again, which is easy, and probably raise your action a bit too, if you like the 11's.

yeah, serious players use .11's or .12's. my jazz teacher, he uses .13's!!! although that actually makes sense. most jazz players tend to slide rather than bend. but trying bend bridge cables? aint my bag, fat cat. ya dig? <- yes, my jazz teacher talks like that...he's pretty cool though.

A "medium" jazz set from D'Addario is 13-56. Yeah, you could probably go up to 11s
