The Jack Casady Signature Bass was designed by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend Jack Casady and is the culmination of years of experimentation by the Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna bassist to find an instrument with superior electric tone and the response of an acoustic bass. Featuring the Casady-designed JCB low-impedance pickup and a three-position rotary impedance control switch for a wide range of tonal versatility.

This bass is a gem. Visually: I mean look at it. It is a showstopper. Everyone who sees it fawns over how gorgeous it is. The faded pelham blue is understated majesty, the pearl fretboard inlays look sharp, and the accessories set off wonderfully. Feel: Big, round neck fills my hand perfectly, feels great. Nice wide fretboard. I have a 335 guitar, so the body shape feels right at home. And it's feather light. The factory setup was near perfect, too. Its light body lends itself to neck dive, but I have a nice thick leather strap that holds it up fine. Sound: Sure it looks nice, but it's an instrument. It's first job is to sound great, and ho boy is this bass a tone factory. Roll the tone down and lower the impedance and you get a warm, deep tone that rumbles your belly just right. Drive the tone up for clear mids and melodic highs. Switch the impedance to 500 for a growling rock sound. This thing can do anything you ask of it. The only overall complaint that I can offer is the stock bridge isn't great. I will be upgrading this to a Hipshot 3 point bridge in the future. I don't know why Epi would produce such a fantastic instrument and then drop this cheap bridge in it, but for the price it's a minor gripe and easy to upgrade. Overall, this bass is a dream. Plays like butter, sounds fantastic no matter what style you're going for, and is a showpiece item. Quality production (even though it's made in China!) and nearly flawless technical aspects. 10/10 would buy again.

A la base j’étais un peu soucieux d’acheter epiphone mais des les premières fois j’ai compris que j’avais fait un bon choix c’est une bass avec un son gras et merveilleusement chaud ,manche facile, bonne prise en main cependant vaut mieux jouer assis ou debout car sur un banc sa se tient moins bien, changer les cordes pour du flatwound . Somme toute très versatile et le petit look vintage est génial !!

La qualité de finition est là. Le tone est incroyable. Le manche avec un radius de 12" est ultra rapide malgré le vernis. Le sustain est superbe. Le pickup donne beaucoup de son! Côté négatif, c'est pas une basse ultra confortable à jouer pour la main droite, ça creuse dans l"avant bras pas mal. Le tone incroyable vous fait oublier ça par contre! Aussi, elle un peu neck heavy. Ça prend une strap qui glisse pas trop!

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
