  1. That looks cool and different. More of the classic look but slung low it'll work in a rock band. I can't think of a stye of music that it wouldn't. For some reason I don't like that they named it after an artist even though I like and respect Casady guitars should be named by the guitar designer like Leo Fender or something. I'll just give it a name like BB King's "Lucy" ha! Just kidding. It's certainly not a deal breaker. I think Mickeybro is right about the Thunderbird looking a little daft like in a country band. I think I will get the JC but I want to hear it and see how those pickups sound and how it looks on me. Sounds like the JC is winning this thread - I'm still happy to hear what you think!!!
  2. Lol - yeah I sorta liked Motley Crue well, until I didn't anymore 😂 but they had the LA look down! My instinct is to care about image and it's part of why I bought my first one, but I grew to love the neck and the way it hung low-slung like you say. I don't wanna look like an old guy trying to relive glory days but yeah folks are open minded especially the real music fans are. I guess I should go to Guitar Center and try them out but if I like the feel of the JC I think it could look cool in a rock setting or anything else really. Yeah a T-Bird has that unique look alright definitely a rocker but if I like the feel I'm really leaning towards the JC I can always get a T-Bird later. Maybe even a Gibson. I think the Epiphone uses the same hardware and the Gibson might use better woods but Epiphone is much better these days. Aren't they still made by Gibson? I see pro bands playing them and they sound good.
  3. Yes Guitar Center has to order them but I have 30 days to return it and yes they're open just need to wear a mask. I might buy from them cuz I hate mailing shyt back
  4. I've played a diverse variety of music pretty much all of it would probably be under the general term "rock" but being a little older I've played proto-punk, hard rock (not really metal but just as loud) I've played softer stuff, psychedelic, ska-reggae, country (-rock or old classics) alternative, indie, garage-rock influenced punk influenced (started out in a punk scene) I played for a 60's era psychedelic "rock-star" recording artist where a very "Jack Cassidy" like bass would have been best for the style but instead of anything hollow I played a '76 Gibson T-Bird. I live in Austin and I played exclusively in orginal music bands but Austin isn't the original music mecca it once was so I might pick up some blues or country gigs to make a little extra money. Since I once owned a T-Bird but sold it in Germany 40 years ago I haven't had one since and have wanted another one. I took a long break from music and am just getting back into it. Given the chance I'd probably settle into a rock feedback-tinged loud rock band but at least for now will likely need something more versatile. I felt like my old Gibson T-Bird was quite versatile but the one thing all the bands I played in were LOUD back then. All things considered I'm leaning toward the Jack Casady thinking it's probably the most versatile but I've wanted another T-Bird for the last 40 years so it was my first choice in fact I almost bought it but my bank had one of those suspicious transaction holds on my debit card and was declined, maybe that's a sign 😵. When I saw the JC model I liked it and haven't been able to decide ever since. Thanks for the feedback I've been out of the loop and seriously just can't make up my mind!!!!
  5. Hello guys! I'm currently looking at two very distinct basses.These basses are the Epiphone Jack Casady and the Epiphone Thunderbird Vintage Pro.I really just can't decide between these two and am hoping some of y'all might tell me what you think. Which would you choose and why?
