    Up for trade, handmade in Japan series Bacchus by Headway Guitars bass. I believe it’s an 02’ model, as well as a discontinued model. Not sure if it’s a Venus, or standard.

    BODY: Ash

    FRETBOARD: Ebony

    SCALE: 34” scale possibly 35”

    NECK: Maple

    PICKUPS:Fender noiseless pickups

    ELECTRONICS: 9v John East retro 3 band preamp

    PICKGUARD: Aftermarket white pearloid


    Originally, the bass had the Bacchus two piece bridge system. The bridge has since been replaced by a previous owner with what appears to be possibly a Schaller. The current bridge offers adjustable string spacing, which is an added bonus! Unfortunately whoever installed the bridge, cosmetically did not do the prettiest job. However it is purely cosmetic and works as it should with no issues.

    Bass does show signs of wear, (shown in pics). Plays like a dream! Lots of woody growl, full lows, amazing mids, and wonderful highs! The John East preamp make this bass an extremely versatile beast! Perfect for any style of music!

    Interested in other basses 4, 5, and 6 string. Other possibly trade interest would be a dark glass alpha omega bass pedal+small bass combo or bass head. Will also entertain other basses of less value+cash, or + dark glass alpha omega pedal.
