Unless surfing the internet gets you ripped I'll never look like that

Dave & Srecko if getting rid of a few Bacchi will help I'll volunteer to take a few off your hands, we'll start with the BST-54 and the goldtop!!

Further to my new Strat, I found another one just like it on Rinkya and it also has no logo on the headstock. The price however was a bit of an eye opener!!

This makes me much more confident that this was a run made by Bacchus that had no logo but the primary question is WHEN and why no logo? The actual specifications look quite outstanding!

Yeah it said new and the same seller has another one on there in Inca Silver. I was really wondering how long the "no logo" ones were made for and when they started. It was also a relief to see other "no logo" ones so it reinforces the belief that the one I bought is genuine.

Thanks John!

They are continually being made since about 2006 when the official Vintage Series was discontinued. Bacchus had started to get more well known outside Japan and that would bring the attention of Fender to bear on their copyright infringing Strats, so, no logos. "Official" Bacchus BST models have a different headstock shape now. Shops are still able to do small runs of BST models with the clone headstock but not with the Bacchus logo it seems.

It looks like they don't put the Bacchus neck plate on them either, so if yours is like that there should be a mark in the neck pocket to identify it.

Of course you can still buy a clone Strat with a Bacchus logo, but it would be by special order only, and maybe only through somebody with a connection to the company (Japanese dealer).

I always thought yours was genuine, but not an old one. We'll see be able to be sure when we see it.
