Indeed. Not just the OP's inquiry from 3 months ago, but also the mystique surrounding mojo.

That said, if one enters a listing in the classified section, they are not allowed to state that the item they're selling has mojo, unless it has a nitro finish. :lol:

Nitro contains mojo. If your guitar does not have nitro, you won't have mojo.

People have always wondered where mojo comes from, now you know. ;)

Is there a Bacchus 101/FAQ hidden somewhere in here?

We need one if not. All of you Bacchus vets need to start sharing the wealth (of info)! :) Perhaps it could contain: 1. Models throughout the years and details (neck carves, type of wood, 1pc backs, etc) 2. Changes in the product line and manufacturing (made in China,. Japan, etc.) 3. Models to avoi...

I might not know for sure until I get my hands on it this week. It has FEB and a claimed one piece back, with Tokai on the headstock and a seemingly valid serial number indicating manufacture in 1980. I'll have to give the back a good scan once it arrives. If I find a seam, I guess I've been duped, ...

1980 Love Rock vs Reborn Old

Hi Folks, I'm in the market for a guitar with a medium C type neck carve, medium to long tenon neck joint, 1 pc back, and clear coat with preferably a honeyburst, tobaccoburst or desert burst type of finish.

I think it;s clear that the identity of The Phantom shall remain undisclosed, or undiscovered. This forum would most certainly vanquish in the wake of such being revealed. However, the identity of the guitar in question may be a simpler task. So, are we thinking LS80? I'm not one for painted guitars...
