    No trades at this time please!

    This is a Bacchus model 24. The model has gone through some revisions since it's introduction around 2000. This one is a more recent model (not the very latest) that has the way-cool two piece bridge and Bartolini 3-band that's active and passive (via toggle switch). She also has a coil tap switch (which enables only one coil on each humbucker).

    It's a tone monster, particularly if you are a slapper (although it also does finger style and pick style great). If you are a slapper, it's very percussive and each note punches through like Chuck Norris!

    Neck is very Jazz-like. It's also a 3-piece and is very stable. The fret work is second to none. Very level. The bass is extremely well-made and SOLID! The fretboard is a gorgeous ebony!

    Update on weight, she's a hair under 8 lbs !!!!

    She has a "hand-oil-rubbed finish" which is not quite as tough as poly. She has been played quite a bit and the body does have some wear as a result. If you are looking for mint bass, best to move on. If you are looking for an AWESOME player with incredible tone and tonal options that you don't have to worry about bumping, etc, then this is your bass!

    She comes with the original gig bag (a pretty nice one). As I recall, this model was around $1,800 or so new before shipping from Japan and import taxes (which place it above $2k total cost new). Because she has some cosmetic wear, I'm going to only ask $685 local and $725 shipped (CONUS), which is EXTREMELY reasonable and cheap for a Japanese made Bacchus (especially a model 24 w Humbuckers and a Bart pre)!

    If you have never played a Japanese Bacchus, you are missing out! I've owned several and they are amazing instruments. The craftsmanship is in the league of basses costing double and triple what they ask for them.

    Correct. Swamp ash I would say as it's not terribly heavy at all.

    Does this bass have a tilted headstock? I notice there is no string tree usually seen on Bacchus.

    Correct, there is a bit more tilt on this headstock than a standard Jazz headstock (Bacchus or other).
