Epiphone Jack Cassidy Signature Bass Goldtop Korea 2012
Epiphone Jack Cassidy Bass, made in Korea 2012, shiny gold. This has a superb classy growl to it; it's like a wolf in a gold tuxedo. Jack Cassidy played bass with psych icons Jefferson Airplane; this model was the result of the sonic meanderings over a couple of decades and has become a somewhat of a cult hit. These Korean made Epi models benefit from a precise and careful build and finish; so this feels very tidy and reassuring in the hands. There's a thick, growly warmth and fullness on offer that'll surely thicken out a rock and roll band with great effectiveness. The deluxe hard case is a nice bonus as they don't come with the bass and cost a fair bit. Surely your fans deserve to see you with a big, sparkly gold moneymaker shaker right?
