Yes on both counts - bought a couple of Greco Mint Collection EG59's, a couple of Springy ST70's - maple and rosewood fretboard twins.

Just sold a Gibson 61 SG reissue and a Gibson Classic SG (P90's). Have several more going soon - Bacchus Classic Series flametop Les Paul (stunning top but the neck profile is too large for me), Edwards Tele-Gib, Van Zandt strat, and a few more that I can't recall right now.

How bout you?

Whats under the finish ?? Since they won't tell you the model or even a year, id say there's probably 4 words. You've been ripped off.

Hey BT I can hear your song playing in the backround.
No worries, the Phantom did not strike on that one!

Weight's about 9 lbs. Solid flame top, not veneer. Upgraded with locking Faber ABR bridge with brass saddles, and Faber locking alum tailpiece and studs.

Great guitar and absolutely gorgeous but the fat 58 neck profile is a bit too much for me.

Bacchus only made the Classic Series guitars for two years, 2011 and 2012. Here's a little info on the brand and this series' Les Paul in particular:

I am selling it - just haven't launched it publicly yet.

I did - to fund a purchase. I'm on the hunt for a double cut Les Paul Junior. Guitar show this weekend in Arlington - might pick up a real one, vintage if I can afford it. Prices have skyrocketed on them.

How've you been? Bought anything new! So nice of you to surface near Halloween. Seems quite appropriate!
