In Reply to: Jack Casady Problem? posted by Lee on May 02, 2001 at 10:27:22:
: Howdy all. I recently purchased a Jack Casady Signature from a large mail order outfit as a scratch and dent item. When it was delivered, the fretboard had separated from the neck from the nut down to the second fret. I tried to get Epiphone to cover it under warranty but since it was purchased as a second, it was my problem. The seller did offer to take it back and refund my $ but since I got such a tremendous discount on the instrument, I decided to have it fixed ($100) and keep it. The seller did give me a $100 credit for my trouble - VERY happy! I have since seen two other Casadys on ebay with the same problem - one stating that it has only minor cosmetic damage(!) so beware. Anyone else out there have the same problem? But, after all that, I absolutely LOVE this bass -especially with the new halfrounds!!
Lee, I bought a Casady back in Dec. and it was delivered in Jan. I bought mine from Musiciansfriend. I'd never bought anything big, like a guitar online before, so I was a little nervous about doing so. As it turnred out, I was very lucky. My Casady came in absolutely mint condition, cosmetically and electronically. Sorry to hear about your trouble, but if it cost $100.00 to get it straightened out, I think it's well worth it. This is one of the best basses I've ever heard in my life. No B.S. I don't work for Epiphone either. This bass will grow on you like moss on a tree in Alabama! Like the ads used to say(I haven't seen one in a while) this bass has such a pure tone you have to hear it to believe it. I know about 12 other guys with Casadys now, and NO ONE has anything bad to say about them. Belive me, that extra $100.00 will be forgotten about soon. This bass is a definite keeper. The only bad thing about owning one of these beauties is: Where do you go from here?
Enjoy that bass!(Like I have to tell you)
P.S. For a real upright bass type sound, turn ALL the midrange down on your amp.
See what I mean?
