Congrats to our Epi bass man Jack Casady who received Bass Player Magazine's Lifetime Achievement Award last week at the Key Club in  Los Angeles along with Larry Graham and Anthony Jackson. After receiving his award, Casady and Jorma Kaukonen gave an exclusive Hot Tuna show.

jThat same weekend, Epiphone set up shop in LA at SIR Studios for Bass Player LIVE! where Casady stopped by to greet the lucky winner of an Ebony Jack Casady Signature bass and hang out.

Jack worked several years with Epiphone R&D to make his signature bass a reality. "I did a lot of homework and bench testing and finally when it clicked in right, it was great." The Jack Casady Signature bass features a JCB-1 low impedance pickup and employs a three-position transformer to shape the frequency response.

"They blow the old Gibsons to smithereens, even in the construction," says Casady. "The workmanship that's coming in on these instruments is just super." Congrats, Jack from all of us at Epiphone!
