Praise for the Jack Casady Bass!
Got a Casady Bass off Ebay a few weeks ago and just wanted to post my praise for such a great sounding instrument! Love it with the Blue Steels on it. Plenty of growl and the warm highs are very sweet. Using a Pro Comfort strap with it and have no trouble with neck dive. Good quality, easy fretting, and fairly versatile with a true rock presence, just.... wow! No soundclips yet, but maybe someday! Feel free to chime in if you have one of these! :cool:

I sold mine a few months ago and already regret it. I'm going to try to buy it back or get a new one. I had D'addario Chromes on mine and it sounded great.

I have two:
Silverburst with a Supertone bridge and Hipshot tuners - Standard tuning
Goldtop with Hipshot tuners - D Standard tuning

I've had some pretty exotic instruments over the years and the Casady is one of best basses I've owned....easily the best $700 I've ever spent on a bass.

Amen, brother. A great bass. I've had one since 1998, with Blue Steel medium lights. A fantastic combination.

I recent got the Silverburst that was on sale here. It's the first new-new* instrument I've bought in a looooong time, and worth the money I spent. Want to get some TI flats on it to see how it might react...
*New-new as in brand new, compared to new-to-me (aka pre-owned or otherwise used).

I had one years ago (ebony) and wasn't impressed with fit, finish and playability. It's long gone, but last winter, I got curious over at Cream City Music in Milwaukee and tried a silverburst special. What a difference! I must have had the proverbial dog in the first Casady.
I picked up a goldtone the following week and haven't looked back. I added a Hipshot Supertone bridge and knuckled under and put on Pyramid flats. I love it. Nicely finished and great play, very responsive to right hand, variable impedance plus tone pot are a great combination. I've taken it lots of places I'd normally go with a Modulus or Fender and have never been disappointed - lots of compliments too.

I had one for several years, loved it. Sold it to fund some more recent gear purchases but would buy one again, great bass IMO.

I had one for a short time and loved it. It had the most versitle sound which could changed by hand placement. Unfortunately I had to part with it due to the fact it was so physically big and I am very short with limited reach.

I had one I played for about 3 years and all of my gripes about it finally lead to me selling it a couple weeks ago. Strings always felt spaced way too far apart, 1/2 and first position playing felt uncomfortable and awkward, and it was extremely difficult to access the higher frets, among other things... I just had the general feeling that I would rather be playing something else when I was playing it. Thing had a great sound, though. Recently found a video of myself playing in a country gospel band with it and I was blown away by how it could achieve room-filling depth and warmth coupled with great note clarity. Great bass but I was just not the player for it, you know? Hope you enjoy yours!
