    Do you like the Fish?

    Does the JC do something you like better?

    Only you know the answer, but I'd keep the Fish.
  3. Both cool basses, but very different beasts.

    imo , the Fish will be worth alot more in the long run .
    you can always buy another Cassidy bass later , or better yet ,

    Greetings from the North,
    KEEP THE REVEREND. The Jack you'll be able to find alot easier than another Fish. I saw another Brad Houser on the Bay yesterday and before I could get my monies straight,it was gone in a blink of the eye. And it had 8 days left in the auction. I hate to say it but I really worry that the value might start creepin up on Reverend basses since it doesn't look like ol Joe Naylor is gonna make another batch too soon,if at all. If you let yours go I wouldn't be surprised if you'll look in the mirror one day soon and really regret it.

    Unless you really prefer the Casady, I also say keep the Reverend. They're great basses, and may become collectible since they're out of production. I see used Jack Casady models for sale regularly, so save for awhile and add one to the herd! (Or, better yet, get a DiPinto Belvedere. ;) )
