I am putting this incredible bass on the market.
I got it back in November from the second owner. He bought it from Vashon Johnson (miley cirrus); I really wanted to get into 5 strings and this bass is too hard to pass on once you play it.
Bacchus are handmade in Japan by incredible luthiers, on par with US Lakland and Custom Shop Fenders if not better.
Can't justify keeping this beast unplayed.
Neck: 1 pc maple
Fret board: Ebony 35 inch scale with Pearloid blocks and binding.
Body: 2 pc highly figured Ash in trans oil finish.
Pups : Bacchus JBT-ALV
Preamp: Bartolini XTCT
Controls: volume , pickup blend , bass, mid, and treble
Bridge : Bacchus DB 5
19mm spacing at the bridge
Machine heads : Clover style custom Bacchus
Weight: 9 lbs
This bass has tone for days, the flexibility with the electronics is amazing.
It is a LOOOOUUUUUDDD bass, much louder than anything I played, stingrays, elricks, active fenders, and active yamahas.
It ships in the pictured IGIG bag, it is fits a little tight but keeps it very protected.
I found this video comparing some bacchus, the standard 4 is the 4 string version of this one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ek9IsXjLlI
price $1350 shipped in the US only, no international shipping.
I would consider a trade + cash for a 34" 5 string, G&L 2500, Fender Jazz or a wide bridge yamaha BB5000.
