    I have for sale a beautiful Candy Apple Red Bacchus Bass Model WL-434 with Matching Headstock and a Mint Pickguard. This is my 3rd Bacchus bass, I still have the 5 string, and they are truly a bargain for the money.

    I installed a few upgrades, IMHO, that worked well with this bass. Stock, I felt the bass was too bright for my taste, so I installed a set of Seymour Duncan Antiquity II Jazz Bass pickups. The SD's worked out well taming the brightness that I was not fond of.

    I replaced the stock control assembly with a Emerson Jazz Bass Control Assembly. See Emerson Link below.
    Replaced the stock tuners with Hipshot HB3 Vintage Style Machines and last, I replaced the stock bridge with a Fender Vintage Threaded bridge.

    The body is Alder and the maple neck has a dark Rosewood Fretboard that is straight and very stable. Presently, I have it set up with DR a new set DR Sunbeams and adjusted with low action. The bass has Dunlop Straplocks on it and I also will include a set of Schaller Strap Locks for those that prefer the Schallers.

    The bass is in very good to excellent condition except for a ding on the bottom horn. See pic below. Bass weighs 8Lbs and 8 ozs.

    Included with the sale is the stock pickups, tuners, control plate assembly and bridge.

    The bass comes with the Stock Bacchus Gigbag and I will include a few extra goodies. :D

    - 2 extra Bacchus Pickguards; White Pearloid and and a Tortoise Shell PG.

    - a sturdier Rockbass Gigbag. A few rough places, but, overall in decent shape.

    - an aftermarket Chrome bass bridge. Your choice, bridge with chrome or brass saddles. I know some like a higher mass bridge than the Fender Vintage. Note, the bass will ship with the Fender Bridge installed.

    - a NIB set of La Bella Deep Talkin' Bass Flats.
