The Jack Casady Signature Bass was designed by Casady in collaboration with Epiphone and is the culmination of years of experimentation by the Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna bassist to find an instrument with superb, balanced electric tone and the response of an acoustic bass. It features a laminated maple body, a set in mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, and trapezoid inlays. A JCB low-impedance humbucker helps recreate the sound that has made Jack one of classic rock's mainstays. It also features a 3-point adjustable bridge and a set of vintage style tuners. Case not included.

Casady is one of the rare rock bassists known by both fans and players for his signature tone. And like The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson and The Beatles' Paul McCartney, Casady became a bass player after years of study on other instruments. "My first teacher was a big band guitarist named Harry Vorhees. Later on I took from a number of guitarists; one was Bill Harris who was the guitarist for the Clovers," Casady told Epiphone.com. "He had studied with a guy who studied with Andres Segovia."

Looking for the Holy Grail of Bass Tone
"When I first started playing, I ran across a short scale semi-hollow bass," said Casady "Despite lacking some low end, I really enjoyed the semi-hollow nature of that bass and over the years tried to capture that characteristic." Casady did find a rare Les Paul bass that came close to the sound he was seeking. "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," Casady recalled. "I loved the bass but found the pickup to be deficient." Casady approached Epiphone with his ideas and with help from our Epiphone luthiers, Casady fulfilled a life-long dream by designing the perfect electric bass.

I like it !


After taking 3 weeks to review this Bass, take some time to get it's feel this is what I think. Looks wise, very nice. I did not like the strings that came on it and switched them out for D'Addario flat wounds. This gave me the warm mellow sound I was looking for, and also gave me the action and feel I am comfortable with. While changing out the strings I came across 2 tuning gears that where very rough, but after taking them apart and lubing them they got better and the gear quality is exceptable for the price range of the instrument. Over all I am pleased, think it is a cool instrument with many possibilities.
