  1. Traded a fella for this last night for an American Standard Jazz that I just never loved. Now my gold top Jack Casady has a sibling. Also, the first two pics are the ones the guy sent me. I believe it had chromes on it. But, he had it strung with TI's, which is perfect, because all of my basses wear TI's.

  3. Thanks!! I never knew I was a fan until I got my gold one. I’m a Fender fan boy through and through. I’ve tried many other brands of basses and always come back to Fender. I can honestly say I love these Epiphones, though!

    The red one is just like the one Jack himself played in concert when I saw him last Summer. That bass is a lot more versatile than I thought. It's not just a hollow body dub thump machine. It'll get some growl to it!

  5. No doubt! After I got the gold one, I took it to a gig. I was worried about feedback, but it had no issues. It sounded Absolutley huge is the mix.

    Very nice! I have spent little time with Eli basses, what does the knob below the scratchplate ‘E’ next to the F-hole do?

    Very nice basses! I would love to get a chance to try those out!

    I am in a bass crossroad too. Jazz Bass all the way and now I only play my semi hollow Ibanez and my double bass.

  10. That is a 3 way rotary switch. I believe it changes the impedence of the pickup. At “50”, it has a warm wooly tone. At “250” it gets a aggressive and growls quite a bit. At “500” it will almost act as an overdrive circuit.

  14. Definitely get your hands on one. They're wonderful basses. I have an assortment of P and J basses. These things have earned a spot in my stable.

    Thanks, I have to see if any of the very few local shops here have one of those.

    Just looked at my local shop website, they have Epiphone and Ibanez semi-hollow, including the Jack Cassady.

    GOD DAMN IT! I just bought my Ibanez SRH505 6 months ago! And a double bass 2 months ago! Now I'm looking at this basses and wanting to try them out, and the Ibanez Portamento or the new Gary Willis fretless and maybe a P, why not? I don't have one, I should give it a try, no?

    SOMEONE HELP ME!

  17. Haha you don’t need help. I bought a Custom Shop P, American Original 60’s P, Gold Jack Casady, 60th anniversary jazz, and an American Standard Jazz last year. This red Jack is my first purchase of 2019. I hope for there to be many more.

    Nice catch and nice match. I miss my gold top, that thing had a wicked growly snarl.

  20. I have that problem too. Any time I find a bass I really like, I always have at LEAST two of them.
