Dagan demoes the Epiphone Jack Casady Bass in the sleek, sexy Ebony finish! Deep, articulate tone and classic hollowbody style are the hallmarks of this bass. The maple body, mahogany block under the bridge, set maple neck, and rosewood fretboard conspire to create a sweet-playing bass you won't want to put down.
Inspired by the Les Paul Basses and ES hollowbodies of the early 1970s, Epiphone have created the Jack Casady Signature with a unique tonal palette.
This great bass comes equipped with a single low-impedance JCB-1 humbucker with VariTone control, as well as traditional volume and tone knobs. Pearloid trapezoid fingerboard inlays, body binding, and Jack's signature across the headstock set it apart from any other bass in the same price bracket.

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.
