2016 Bacchus Craft Series BTL-100M  See-Through White Blonde




£619.00




JAPAN IMPORT


Bacchus Guitars really are top quality instruments. Their Handmade & Craft series are built at the Deviser factory in Japan to a very high standard. This will be the 5th or 6th Bacchus I have imported & every one has been just as good. The Handmade series are priced around £1500-£2000 for most models whilst the Craft series are around £1000-£1200 if you can get hold of a new one in the UK.


This particular is around 5 years old. It is in very good condition with just a few scratches around the body. There is a tiny chip by the input socket and a tiny dent on the back of the neck. The neck, frets & playability are all excellent.

Here is what Bacchus say about the Craft series (translated from Japanese)


The Bacchus CRAFT Series lineup has achieved extreme cost performance with a built-in booth designed independently from the custom line. It is a model that can be convinced from entry users to high-end users with an electric guitar with a traditional look.

The withered sound peculiar to the Alder body is characteristic, and high quality domestic parts are used for parts such as pegs and bridges. The pickup is equipped with "VT-1" which is also used for MOMOSE Custom Craft Guitars. Alnico 5 is used as the material for the magnet, and it features a powerful and powerful vintage sound.

The Maple fingerboard model has a 1-ply pickguard and brass is used for the bridge saddle.

I couldn't find spec for the fretboard radius but it appears to be a 9.5" radius (240mm) and the neck has a satin finish.

As stated many times, due to courier damage, all my guitars are shipped in hard cases (usually new) this one being a plain black one. I do have a tweed option and these are a little dearer (extra £12). If you prefer that, please email me for details. If you are collecting, I'm happy to knock off the price of the case (About £30) & I may even have an old gig bag you can have to take it away in

If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.
