Epiphone Celebrates Jack Casady + Tour

Article Contributed by Cash Edwards M… | Published on Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Jack Casady is one of the most influential bassists of his generation.  He ranks among the Top 25 Bassists of all time says Bass Player Magazine and today his signature bass can be heard on tour with Paul McCartney, Jack White, the Stone Roses, and of course, Hot Tuna.
Epiphone and Jack Casady first released Jack’s signature bass in 1997. It was the culmination of years of experimentation by the bassist to create an instrument that had superb electric tone but also had the response of an acoustic bass. Twenty years later it has become the bass of choice for everyone from world-renowned players to students.
To celebrate this, Epiphone presents the new Premier Artist Signature Series and the debut of the Limited Edition 20th Anniversary Jack Casady Signature Bass. It features a beautiful Flame Maple Veneer top finished in Wine Red, Casady’s custom-wound black JCB-1™ Humbucker, and a 3-Position VariGain™ Switch; 50, 250, 500 ohms. Plus, a custom 20th Anniversary gig bag, deluxe leather strap, and certificate of authenticity hand signed by Jack Casady.
“Jack Casady has not only been a great friend to Epiphone but he embodies what we strive to do everyday,” said Epiphone President, Jim Rosenberg.  “Jack is an innovator, a maverick and totally unique.  He never stops trying to improve. And he has a great time on stage, too!”
