With a motto like "Performance is our Passion," it's easy to see that Epiphone is a brand built on a foundation of hard work, innovative ideas and the drive to exceed the expectations of musicians around the world. Throughout their 140 year history they've built guitars, basses, amps and accessories for every genre of music imaginable, and their gear has been seen on stage with industry greats like the Beatles, Nirvana, Alabama and the Strokes. While their entire product cataloge is impressive, Epiphone's bass guitars truly stand out as some of their most inspiring and notable instruments.
Take for example, the Jack Casady Signature Bass Guitar. The culmination of a long-lasting relationship between Epiphone and Casady, this maple-bodied beauty is loosely designed around Casady's vintage 1972 Gibson Less Paul signature bass. Its low-impedance JCB-1 humbucker combined with its versatile volume, tone and Varitone knob controls give this exclusive bass the sweet, woody sounds that are synonymous with the Jefferson Airplane bassist's playing style.
Speaking of playing style, if you're new to the music scene and have your sights set on the bass, you'll definitely want to check out Epiphone's EB-0 SG. As one of their most affordable models, the EB-0 SG is a recreation of the classic '60s SG bass and captures the look, feel and tone of its predecessor without the vintage price tag. A great choice for younger musicians, this bass is built to a reduced scale with a thinner neck, making it perfect for smaller hands and shorter bodies.
