Back to the Classic Series Bacchus guitars..... I saw a few of the strats on one of the links in this thread and they look really nice.

But it's the Les Pauls that have caught my attention. Does anyone know of any of the usual suspects carrying them yet - Ishibashi, Gakkido, Kurosawa?

Marcus, Kurosawa has some of the plain top models but none in flame that I've seen. But, if memory serves correctly, you're a plaintop guy anyways right?

Another good thing about Devisor is that they actually list the wood types the guitar is made from like Honduras or African Mahogany etc

Some of these smaller guitar makers have folded over the years in Japan but Devisor made it through.

EMS still isn't posting my guitar. Pissing me off. It's 7 A.M. in japan and it went out yesterday. I know it's not a live Road or a duke but I have been waiting for this guitar for years. They told me the classics are the most like the old Live roads. Why they renamed their new Universe series Live road I'll never know. Confusing. I need to share that with them.

Now it makes even more sense working with Bacchus. My Honey burst Classic left Japan today. It's not showing up on EMS yet. I'm wondering how long it will take. Anyone know? To Nashville.

I`ve sent several guitars from Japan to Montreal and it takes a week door to door by insured postal service.

plate tectonics?

Some parts of Japan have moved recently maybe as much as 13 feet.

yeah I would have bet money somebody was going to say something about that when I typed what I did...because I`d seen it already. Did you think Japanese scientists had missed that?

I didn't even think of the earthquake :oops: I just meant in general that the plates everywhere are moving all the time :)
sneakyjapan wrote:well yeah Dave, thats valid... and I`ve only been playing for about 15 years so even though my fingers didn`t work as well as I would have liked them to at the time there was nothing wrong with my ears and eyes and in fact they were recommended to me by another gaijin who used to do the sumo television here on NHK, named Tom Quinn... we were on line at another site and I mentioned I had seen some in the local Yamaha shop and he told me to play one...I did and that was that. I spent my youth learning how to draw and paint but guitar was always on my to do list and one day I bought a guitar and was smitten...then I couldn`t stop buying them however, that seems to have petered out probably because I already have more great MIJ guitars than any one guy could use in a single life time, I have been very lucky.
Yeah, I'm kinda getting to having enough guitars now that it's getting a bit daft. I won't need any more once I get about another 5 or 6 (!). Of course once I get them I'll probably decide I need more :lol:

They are usually AMAZINGLY fast. It's the best postal service I've ever used. All the guitars I've bought from Japan have arrived in under 4 days...(that's to Taiwan). It's crazy how efficient EMS is. I wouldn't stress about it too much.
