    Went for a small vacation in Tokyo , and came back with this gorgeous BACCHUS 417 AC ...

    Sound great , feel great ... looking awesome ....

    Don’t know why , but I have the urge to install the Sadowsky pre-Amp kit.

    It is currently loaded with Aguilar OBP-2 and it sounds amazing ... but you know ... GAS.

    Did anyone here install the Sadowsky kit ? ... anyone on a Bacchus ?

    What are your thoughts ??

    More proof that Bacchus takes a back seat to no one when it comes to finish variety.

    Love bacchus and other Japanese brands like FGN. Have foolishly sold both in fits of GAS. 2ED79872-6FEF-4B0E-9311-7E19E5389DC9.jpeg 6D8BF11E-3F0B-4DC7-A974-3B1ACD1768B3.jpeg

  9. Not as much fun as a gaijin on vacation in Japan, and not as nerve-wracking as waiting out an order from Japan . . . . .

    Bacchus, like Moon, et al, have no real American distribution, but they are available thru the Great White North:


    and lo and behold, FGN is making a small footprint here in the 'States:

    www.fgnusa.com (interestingly, this gets you to FGN's worldwide site, then sort thru the 'distributors' tab for the USA: It comes up 'fgnusa.com', but you can't get to it directly . . . . . )

    . . . . . I have no relationship with either, just a fan with too much time on his hands in Google Search . . . . .

    thanks for the great feedback :)

    now , does anyone know of a the Hipshot Xtender that will fit for a drop D without having to drill new holes?
  11. ilansgroove - beautiful bass. Love the black and gold and the beautiful "ebony" look of the body. Congrats.
