Yesterday I stopped in a music store I don't get to very often, just to browse. They had an Epiphone Jack Casady on the rack. Jack was one of my very first inspirations to play bass, and I've always had a little GAS for one of these.... Took it down to noodle around on it, and YIKES! The action was high, but the G string buzzed from about the 7th fret up to at least 12th. I really doubt anything was wrong with the instrument that couldn't have been fixed with about a half hour of setup. Why would a store have a nice instrument like this in nearly unplayable condition?
