Hi everybody, I'm in love with the Jack Casady bass by Epiphone since 2009, when I first tried it, but never owned one. Time passes, people move, and like a river flow, it never ends, someone used to say, so now that I found my inner peace with the Gibson SG bass (owning two of them), I decided that the time has come to buy a Casady. where is the question? in the past years I've tried it many times, and found that the back colour of the Gold model always changes; in some models it's black, in some it's dark wine/red, and for a small amount of time it was transparent/natural with just a bit of stain to darken the woods (like this: Epiphone Jack Casady Bass Guitar + case, Hipshot tuners & bridge, & flatwounds, Epiphone／Jack Casady Bass Metallic Gold 【梅田店】／新品／¥67284／状態：S) just like the original Les Paul Signature. which one do you have? and do you think that a period or another is better or worse? if I'm not wrong, the "natural" one was made during the "made in china" short era of the Casady, and the others are all "made in Korea".
