    Hello fellow Bass-heads!
    I am excited to bring you hand made Bacchus Basses direct from the Aska factory in Japan.
    This time we have the excellent STD-JB5, and no before the juvenile jaunts begin that is NOT a contagious venereal disease :p STD simply stands for Standard ;)

    Here she is in all her splendour. Price $1100 plus $140 shipping.

    Details

    Another beautiful hand crafted instrument from the revered Deviser workshops, home of STR, Momose and Aska. This is from their Craft series, and is top of that range so parallel with their Premium or Hand Made series.
    The Standard was in the Hand Made and Premium Line up until this year due to a change of catalog making the favored two piece bridge unavailable, so now they use a Gotoh 2035B bridge instead on this model.
    The instrument is very solid, rugged in build and the Aguilar OBP produces a great deep rich tone that can growl, can sound smooth and can be bright and punchy. It is versatile enough to satisfy seasoned pros and competes easily with higher end instruments from the likes of ESP moon, or
    or Atelier Z.

    Here is the vid review on my website

    Spec.

    This instrument features stylish perloid binding around a 21 fret rosewood or maple fingerboard, atop a solid one piece maple neck and is equipped with rugged gotoh precision style heads in black.

    Hi Oscar, thanks for your question.

    For this bass in particular, the price has come down because it has been used in a demo video. So the current price is $1050 plus $140 shipping and duty Tax in Texas will be about 7% so if we mark the shipping value down to $800, it' ll be $56.

    I just sent another bass to Mexico the other day and Tax turned out to be 10% so the duty would be would be $80

    So all in all to Mexico, $1270 or to Texas $1246

    Please note that these figures are according to current duty rate calculators and may not be 100% accurate.

    If you want to know about other Bacchus models just pay a visit to my online store to find out more.

    Basically we can ship anywhere in the world using EMS Japan, which is tracked, insured and registered globally. However, Africa and South American countries are outside the normal shipping zone and are a bit more expensive. Around 8KG shippied to these zones is around $240

    The other option is shipping SAL or surface airlift, which takes up to 2 weeks rather than 5 days, but costs around $120. For this though, because of package size restrictions, we have to ship with the neck off. This has been done in the past with no issues.

    We also ship below value to help customers with duty fees :)
