    So I've been kicking around the idea of getting a JC bass for the past few years... what are the +'s and -'s of this bass?
     
  2. I just got one in a trade, i trade a bass i got for 425$ for a mint jack with matching case so i was getting a pretty good deal.

    Its a nice bass the notes really ring out i am guessing due to the fact its a hollowbody, i really enjoy it but i need to work on the neck dive.

    FWIW,
    Steve Azola was selling one for like $350 with a Kent Armstrong pickup down in the La Mesa area. What part of North County are you in btw?

    Steve or Jill if you see this I want that bass :hyper:
     
  11. I picked up a Jack Casady to fumble with in a GC once, just to say I played something else besides what they usually sell. I was quite amazed at how good this bass sounded. First time I had played a bass with flats too. Good bass IMO.

    NICE! PMed you!
     
  15. This thread made me go play mine, so while on break i just gotta say its a great bass i really like mine. I would never pay the full 130$ epiphone wants for the case, the case is not very solid looking to me

    Mine is black :)
