    The TB'er that bought this bass and said he was sending PAYPAL NEVER sent funds, so it is STILL AVAILABLE.
    For sale is my Bacchus WJB Short Scale Mini Jazz Bass. Its got a 30" scale and a smaller body than a regular jazz bass. (similar size to a Hofner Beatle Bass) Absolutely BRAND NEW CONDITION. Not a scratch or mark anywhere. Frets, truss rod, electronics are perfect. It sounds GREAT and has super low action with no fret buzz or rattle. Its so fun to play and great to travel with. It is also super lightweight. Just a shade over 6 pounds on my digital scale.

    These are SUPER rare and you will not find one in the USA. I had it shipped to me from JAPAN and I am the only owner. I paid over $500 for it. I have played maybe 3 times at home and has never been gigged. With the Covid-19 stopping all my music gigs, I need to liquidate music equipment that is not essential. If you're looking for a cool little bass you can take with you anywhere you go....this might be it. Comes with a light gig bag. $350 will get it delivered to you via ground in CONUS.

    I’m interested in getting a short scale bass and I’d never heard of Bacchus, so I did a quick check. It looks like there are some Bacchus wjbs on reverb. What is it that makes this one rare?

    I had not looked on REVERB for them. When I bought mine, there were NONE listed on REVERB. ALL of the Bacchus WJB mini jazz basses listed on Reverb are from shops in JAPAN and you need to spend around $150-200 above the selling price for shipping and wait for the time it takes. By rare...I meant you do not find these in America for sale. NO USA sell them, that I am aware of. I am open to slight negotiation, but this is literally a brand new bass in 100% perfect condition. I paid over $500 for mine from Japan from the link that I included.

    BTW, I own 3 other (5 string) BACCHUS basses and this is one of the best kept secrets among bass guitar companies. In Japan, they are highly regarded ...but relatively unknown in the USA. Really high quality and play-ability. This particular model is very unusual because not only is it a short scale that can hold it's own against full size, full scale jazz basses.....but it is a smaller body that ends up being light weight. I think that the appeal initially is for a smaller person or smaller hands...but because it has a smaller body, it is a great traveler or a bass to keep near your desk for impulsive playing for ANY size person. Since my music gigs have all gone away for now..I am wanting to sell some of my non-essential basses.

  7. I have a 34" Bacchus Jazz MIJ and they are kind of a secret of the bass world. High quality.

    It is possible. I was sent a PM saying that he would take it and asked for my paypal. He told me he would send me payment today and have not received anything yet. If he does not come through today, then it WILL still be available. I will update you and also send you a PM if it falls through. This is a great bass and unusual for a short scale to sound identical to a full scale jazz bass.

    The TB'er that said he wanted to buy it and would send PAYPAL today, did NOT follow through. No money has been received as he promised, SO it is still available to others that were interested. Please PM me.

    You might help your case if you posted reasonably sized pictures. In your listing there is one OK sized picture (shown twice) and the rest are thumbnails that make it impossible to judge the condition/quality of the bass.

    Thanks. I had already boxed up the bass, ready to ship and waiting and waiting for the promised PAYPAL funds. I may unbox and take more photos in a while. One TB'er had asked about whether this is a neck diver and I sent a photo that I will add to my posting. (While standing with a decent wide strap, there is no neck dive. Sitting, however, without a strap...the bass does have some neck dive because the body is smaller and lighter weight) bacchus standing with strap.jpg
    Available AGAIN...original buyer flaked out and did not send funds.

    The bass is wrapped up, bubble wrapped, double boxed and ready to go. Since I thought that it was sold already. It can be brought to a shipper today.
