FYI a common problem with Casinos, in fact P-90's in general...

You might find this of interest (note Lindy's comments about polepiece adjustment vs. shims):

BTW they can be had cheaper:

Hit it with some silver or chrome model paint, swap it in when you change strings (about a 10-15 minute job), and you're good to go - big difference in tone and pickup balance...

Thanks, Steve. That is great info from Fralin. Based on this knowledge both of the pickups on my Casino are too low. I'll measure again after a string gauge change and setup to see where we are. I'm going to let the guitar acclimate to it's new home for a bit before I dig in with dialing it in.
