Epiphone Jack Casady Bass (Ebony)
The Epiphone Jack Casady bass is bound for glory. It's a versatile, long-scale, semi-acoustic, modern electric bass with that'll give you classic tone. This classic semi-acoustic tone is so pure and natural it'll give you goose bumps. All courtesy of the custom made low impedance JCB-1 pickup, which produces a bass sound high impedance pickups and active electronics can't match. The Jack Casady Bass also features laminated maple body, mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard with trapezoid inlays.
Here what Jack Casady himself has to say about the bass...
"When I first started playing, I ran across a short scale semi-hollow bass, despite lacking some low end, I really enjoyed the semi-hollow nature of that bass and over the years tried to capture that characteristic". Eventually Casady found a rare Les Paul bass that came close. "In 1985, I was living in New York and happened to stop in a music store one day and saw a goldtop, full scale semi-hollow Les Paul bass, I loved the bass but found the pickup to be deficient."
Jack Casady took his ideas about how to build his longed for bass to the skilled luthiers at Epiphone, and after some work they managed to fulfil his dream. Now his dream is available to everyone through this amazing signature bass.
