I have always been a fan of ZZ Top, their music, Billy Gibbons, and of course the mythical Les Paul that Billy received from Dusty & Frank decades ago, 'Pearly Gates.'

I have also been a big fan of many Japanese made guitars over the years, Bacchus being one of the many brands. I have seen a few Bacchus BLS & BLP models over the years, was digging around on the web, and I spotted something interesting.

I spotted a Bacchus Classic BLP-STD FM Relic that looks more like the Rev's 'Pearly Gates' than any other Bacchus I have seen. It's not exact but it's fairly close. It is an interesting maple top, to say the least.

Check the link below & check the fourth guitar from the bottom, H00832. What do you think; look like 'Pearly Gates' just a little? Cheers

I noticed the link above from 2011 & several other older Bacchus links are now inaccessible

It seems like they scrubbed their web site of any Gibson style product

Oh well, H00831 is now officially on US soil probably in US Customs

I sure would like to get my hands on H00382
