2019 Bacchus Craft Series BJM Standard MIJ Jazzmaster & new hard case
£749.00 + shipping
Bacchus guitars are excellent. The Craft Series are made at the Deviser Plant in Japan. Fantastic build quality & made in Japan to a high spec. I have had 3 or 4 Bacchus guitars & all have been superb. The pickup Momose Hot Rod 60’s sets are very highly rated and made at the Deviser factory. Cloth covered wiring etc etc. The rest of the hardwear is top quality GOTOH. So with the addition of a Roller saddle bridge with buzz stop bar and a nice slim Maple neck which is bare finished and has a flatter 9.5" fretboard, it ticks all the right boxes for me!
This particular guitar was made in 2019 & is to the usual Bacchus Craft Series standard. A lovely guitar in the popular "Vintage White" finish. Condition is really good. According to the spec from Japan, the 3 way switch has been replaced. There is one tiny (1mm) chip on the back which is photographed in the gallery but that is about it. The big plus on this guitar is the roller bridge and the buzz stop bar both of which are designed to eliminate the Jazzmaster problem of strings popping off the bridge on the Fender models. It already has the upgrade that many Jazzmaster owners retro fit.

Hard Case Policy
As with all my guitars, a hard case is included in the sale. The new generic case supplied with this guitar is quite a tight fit but I supply hard cases in the main to protect my guitars from shipping damage which this does extremely well. There are specific cases made by Fender & Gator for the Jaguar & Jazzmaster but these are around £100-£150. I will leave it to the next owner if he wants to upgrade.
Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £50 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that I won't ship a guitar in a gigbag.
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.
Or, you can buy quickly and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button and I will ship to most UK addresses the next working day. Highlands and Islands can be slightly dearer but I'll keep the cost as low as I can.
I can accept credit card payments by phone and will also offer a small discount to purchasers using bank transfer payments.
Overseas customers are very welcome but please email me first for shipping quotes.
