The Jack Casady Signature Bass was designed by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Jack Casady. Casady, a founder of two legendary rock bands--Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna—designed his Signature Bass in close collaboration with Epiphone. The Jack Casady Signature Bass is the culmination of Jack’s dream to create the perfect bass--one that combines superb, balanced electric tone with the response of an upright. And pros all around the world count on the Jack Casady Signature Bass every night including Paul McCartney’s bassist Brian Ray, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, and Mani Mounfield of the Stone Roses.

Jack Casady, along with the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson and the Beatles' Paul McCartney, is one of the greatest bass players in the history of rock, known by both fans and players for his signature sound. Casady took to electric bass after years of study on other instruments. "My first teacher was a big band guitarist named Harry Vorhees,” Casady told Epiphone.com. “Later on I took from a number of guitarists; one was Bill Harris who was the guitarist for the Clovers. He had studied with a guy who studied with Andres Segovia."

In search of the Holy Grail of Bass Tone
“When I first started playing, I ran across a short scale semi-hollow bass,” said Casady “I really enjoyed the semi-hollow nature of that bass and over the years tried to capture that characteristic.” Casady came to Epiphone with his ideas and with help from Epiphone luthiers, fulfilled his life-long dream of designing the perfect electric bass.
