    Very Versatile and Elegant

    I got this bass because I needed a backup for my Fender Jazz and I wanted to be able to get a more acoustic tone while I was at it. Really cool thing about this axe is that with the tone selection knob, you have quite literally 3 entirely uniques bass sounds, not to mention AWESOME acoustic tone. Everyone always goes on about this bass needing flat wound strings, so I ordered some with it, but I have yet to put them on because the bass sounds so great right out of the box. I'm sure I'll get around to it, but it is not the make or break item others describe it to be. The only thing I didn't like was that when the bass arrived the pick up tone selector switch and the line out jack were both loose. I guess the inspector missed those items, but I still give this 5 stars because this thing sounds soooo good. Very easy to play and overall a truly good instrument with great build quality. As an added bonus it looks cool too. I would get the hard case if I was you, it does provide good protection. Oh yeah, people also whine about the bass being so called neck heavy. It is a hollow body so there is a bit of truth to that, but as usual very overexagerated. A bit wider strap takes care of it just fine. Buy it you won't regret it. This bass can do anything you need it to do if you can provide the chops to pull it off.

    Jack Casady Bass

    The Jack Casady Bass exceeded my expectations!!! Great tone and bottom end. It's unlike any bass I've ever played.

    First off this bass just looks cool, it's unique. The tone is where it really shines, the three different settings allow for substantial tone changes on the fly. This may be a hollow body but make no mistake it can freaking rock. Great throaty tone, if that makes since. Some say it has a really beefy neck but I didn't find it anything out of the norm and I have small hands. Yet another great purchase from the good people at Sweetwater.

    Jack in Black!

    Very nice! I found the acoustic tone to be trebly and rattley (all the pickguard, pickup bezels, etc) but plugged in (as it should be) it sounds great. For a single pickup bass it has a nice range of sounds thanks to the Varitone switch. Build quality is top notch, feels more like one of my early 70s Gibsons.
    The stock strings have to go. Don’t even tune it up, just cut ‘em off and start over. I put Thomastik-Infeld flats on it and wow! I imagine it would be nice with D’Addario Chromes, even Fender 9050s too.

    For the price, it would be nice if it came with a case but it is a $120 option. Oh well, it’ll fit in my double gig bag.

    I love the black finish instead of gold, but that is a personal choice.
