Hello fellow bass people. I just joined after being a part time bassist for many many years, I'm in my 60s now, retired and performing regularly for the first time in years. A few years back I bought a Sterling (affordable version of a Musicman Stingray) and it's been my main instrument but it's pretty heavy and tends to feel like I've been backpacking with one shoulder strap after a while. My old body is wondering about something lighter and I've been considering the Jack Casady Epiphone as he was an early inspiration and what I've read is very positive but I haven't found one in a shop anywhere in the Chicago area to try. Any thoughts on it's weight and sound/playability/feel etc. will be appreciated. And Happy Birthday to J S Bach.
