Semi-hollow maple body provides bright attack and resonant acoustic thump
Here’s something we don’t see every day: a semi-acoustic bass. What’s more, the Jack Casady Signature Bass features a maple back and sides, whose bright and naturally resonant tone complements the woody thump of its 34-inch-scale bass setup. Even without its killer electronics, all you have to do is listen to the acoustic sound of the Epiphone Jack Casady Signature Bass to know this is a very special instrument.
Specially designed pickup captures natural bass tone with extra clarity
To capture the full range of the Jack Casady Signature Bass’s acoustic bass sound, Epiphone outfitted it with a specially designed low-impedance, low-output humbucker. Not only does this humbucker capture the Jack Casady Signature Bass’s thump and growl beautifully, it also gives your sound the kind of clarity you don’t typically get from bass pickups.
VariTone control makes dialing in the perfect bass sound as simple as turning a knob
Epiphone’s VariTone circuitry is a truly unique beast, and it’s part of what makes the Jack Casady Signature Bass such a fun and distinctive instrument to play. The VariTone control lets you dial in the impedance of its active humbucking pickup from around 50–500 ohms, which seriously affects your sound. As you turn the Jack Casady Signature Bass’s VariTone control, you shift its tone from even dynamics and full tone to a punchier response with a narrower sound and plenty of bite. This gives you an absolutely massive sonic palette to play with!
