Epiphone presents the Ltd. Ed. 20th Anniversary Jack Casady Bass Outfit commemorating the all-time best selling hollowbody electric bass designed by Jack Casady, co-founder of the Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna, and a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Featuring a Flame Maple Veneer top finished in Wine Red plus a custom gig bag, deluxe leather strap and certificate of authenticity hand signed by Jack Casady.

The new Ltd. Ed. 20th Anniversary Jack Casady Bass Outfit has a maple body with a Flame Maple Veneer top in a commemorative Wine Red finish with single-ply white binding. The hand-set mahogany neck has a 34" scale with a rosewood 12" radius fingerboard, a 1.6535" nut, and 2-ply black/white truss rod cover with "20th Anniversary" silkscreened in white along with Jack's trademark signature in gold on the headstock. The rosewood fretboard has pearloid "Trapezoid" inlays and 20 medium jumbo frets.

Custom Wound Pickup
The Ltd. Ed. Jack Casady Bass Outfit features Jack's custom designed JCB-1 low impedance, low output pickup, which employs a three-position transformer to shape the frequency response. "I went to work on the pickup and it took almost two years to develop," says Casady. Controls include a Master Volume, Master Tone with Black "Top Hats" knobs with metal inserts plus Epiphone's custom 3-Position VariGain Switch for additional tone shaping (50, 250, and 500 ohms).

Rock Solid Epiphone Hardware
Every Jack Casady Signature Bass features nickel hardware, classic style 19:1 ratio tuners, and a 3-point adjustable bridge exactly like what the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer uses on-stage. "Every year I get two new instruments that I take out on the road," says Casady. "No ringers. I have none that are set up a special way or anything like that and they are great." The Ltd. Ed. 20th Anniversary Jack Casady Bass Outfit includes a padded gigbag with the 20th Anniversary "Jack Casady 20" logo and a Hand-Signed Certificate of Authenticity.

The pick up is different from anything else. It is a quieter signal, but so clear that you can hear every nuance. There is nothing else like the Jack Casady on the market.
