    Found a Spector that I'm likely going to grab and I have a plethora of Jazz basses. This one is extra special in a few ways...

    This is a 2020, Limited Edition Bacchus DX-4. I literally went through all of the ones made (a small handful) and picked the one with the best top. You can see both spalting and flaming, etc. The top is a work of art. This one was hand picked by me.

    When I received her, I took her right to Kevin Brubaker and he gave her his special fret treatment in which he crowns and polishes them to his standards and in addition, does what he refers to as his "fall-away treatment" in which the last (highest) few frets at the body, lightly "fall away" at thousands of an inch (stepping down) which allows the action to go even lower than a "normal" fret job. I have him do this with almost all of my high-end basses. Definitely makes a difference, even to basses that come with great fret work from the builder. Kevin's fret work just is a notch above 99% of everyone else's in my humble opinion. This obviously cost me some extra $$$ on top of the price of the bass, shipping and VAT. So I'm taking a significant loss here...

    She's never left my house (besides going to Kevin's shop). Never gigged, never been to a rehearsal. Pretty much as new (well, technically better than new w the additional fret work).

    Comes with the original Bacchus (very thickly padded) gig bag, tools, etc. I had to have this imported, which wax very expensive. I paid some crazy shipping and VAT (import tax). You won't have these crazy additional expenses as I've done this for you...

    More pictures later (these are the ones I have on my phone at the moment)...

    Here is your chance to have what I think is the nicest Bacchus ever built. Grab it before I change my mind (which I'm seriously considering). CONUS shipping only (PM me for a quote).
