Hey all, so I've really been thinking about a Bacchus lately, something for a Jbass alternative to my Lakland DJ5. Was thinking about the 24, which is similar in aesthetic to the Sadowsky modern.
I reached out to sales@Bacchusdo.com
about buying direct and didn't get a response. I found this fellow http://www.dannymstewart.com
as a Bacchus dealer, as well as seeming to sell lessons and pretty much everything else imaginable. His E-Merch website is kinda hard to navigate so I reached out to him via email. He has been very communicative and the prices he's quoting are exactly the same as shown on the Bacchus site..... however a couple of things are making me nervous;
I can't locate it easily on my mobile app, but there was at least one Bacchus on the TB classifieds where the owner got a bass from this dealer which was very different from the one he paid for, almost an imitation of the one he thought he was getting. Instead of a bartolini pre it was some no name pre, totally different hardware etc, and he ended up selling it at a huge loss. Next... I got a response from Bacchus, saying that they no longer manufactured the specific model I was interested in..... however there may have been something lost in translation.... the sender's English was very poor. On the other hand Danny stated that the model I wanted WAS available and would be ready by Oct 15th if I ordered now.....
Has anyone here purchased from Danny? Seems like a great guy.... but something about this setup is making my spidey-sense tingle....
