    This is an original custom Bacchus Strong from 2005.

    See vid of this bass here:

    Specs:

    Neck: 1 pc maple

    Fret board: Ebony 35 inch scale with Pearloid blocks and binding.

    Body: 2 pc highly figured Ash in trans black oil finish.

    Pups : Bacchus Custom Shop Humbuckers.

    Preamp: Bartolini XTCT

    Controls: volume , pickup blend , bass, mid, and treble

    Bridge : Bacchus DB 5

    Machine heads : Clover style custom Bacchus

    Weight: 9 lbs

    Comes with Ashton ultra light bag (very similar to Sadowsky style).

    Condition:
    It is finished in a see thru black stain over the beautifully figured Ash body and a clear custom pickguard. The body and neck have a pearloid binding giving the instrument a boutique look to it and plays and sounds great!
    The truss is fully operational and the DB bridge is among one of the best on the market.
    The neck and fret board are in good shape and feel great to play on. Very smooth action with singing high notes and great sustain.

    There are a few minor dings due to normal play wear. On first looks though it is stunning, and these little cosmetic flaws (see pics) barely detract from the overall majesty of the instrument.

    For trade only
