2017 Bacchus Craft Series Tactics Hollow Brown Oil MIJ Telecaster & new hard case

£849.00 + 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 pickups are Momose and very highly rated and also made at the Deviser factory. Cloth covered wiring etc etc. The rest of the hardwear is top quality GOTOH, the bridge having the benefit of Titanium saddles. Add a nice slim Maple neck which is satin finished and has a flatter 8.5" fretboard, it ticks all the right boxes for me!


This particular guitar was made in 2017 & is to the usual Bacchus Craft Series standard. The spec from Japan stated that it was a special edition model. An all round lovely guitar Made with a semi hollow Mahogany body & Maple neck with a Rosewood board. The result is a really lightweight Telecaster Thinline (3.03kg) with the addition of a beefy Humbucker at the neck. Condition is really good. There are a few small dents which are in the oiled finish. The oiled finish resonates better than if it were lacquered but it does mean they are more susceptible to dents. These are minor and I couldn't get the camera to pick them up

Hard Case Policy

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit.  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.
