Following the success of his work with Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna, Epiphone have produced the Jack Casady Signature bass. Similarly to the 'ES' semi-hollow electric guitars they produce, the Jack Casady Signature model offers a naturally 'woody' and bright tone that can add a new dimension to your sound. Comes equipped with the VariTone impedance control switch which opens up the sonic possibilities even further.
This Jack Casady Signature is powered by a single Humbucker pickup for immense tone. Features iconic ES-style cutaways and classic Metallic Gold finish.
Jack Casady, electric rock bass player extraordinaire, worked closely with Gibson and Epiphone to create this tasty signature model. It's a long-scale, hollowbody electric bass constructed loosely around his vintage 1972 Gibson Les Paul Signature bass, discovered in a New York instrument shop in the mid '80s. Starting from there, Jack spent a lot of energy working with a pickup designer from Epiphone putting together a new humbucker to reside in his signature model. Together they nailed down a passive pickup and control section that delivered tone so pure and natural it'll give you goose bumps. The pickup is a special low-impedance model (the JCB-1), which produces a bass sound high impedance pickups and active electronics can't match.
The Jack Casady Signature bass is as unique as Jack, with a vibe, tone, and innovative features all its own.
