I've searched for, and found, a bunch of info on Bacchus guitars on this forum, but very little specifically on the BLS-700.

Does anyone own one? What are your impressions?

I am seeking a rather inexpensive LP copy, and am also considering the Agile AL-3100. (Yes, I know the Agile is "anatomically incorrect", but they tend to get good reviews)

I owned 4 BLS-600 models; 2 flame top & 2 quilt

I believe they are BLS-700 in the current/latest line

I believe they were Korean made & poly finished but they have the very same attention to detail & overall quality that I have seen in the MIJ Bacchus line

The bodys were all center seam back, center seam top, and center seam veneer; three layers & all center seam which again is the typical Bacchus attention to detail

The e-lp-92 should certainly be added to my short list for consideration.

What attracts me to the Bacchus are some of the pictures I have found on the Japanese websites.

47,775 yen = $526.47 USD according to today's exchange rate (does not include shipping)

BLS -700 I can recommend it.
It is made in guitar China, and PUs is made in Korea.
Having long TENON, the specifications are good.

I have this model 6 month ago, it is well built and finished for a chinese model, 2 pieces neck, 2 pieces body, long neck tenon.
The neck is like a 60's, very thin, the fretboard is very flat, I don't know what's the radius.
Electronic is very cheap and PU are not killer sounding, so with a good pots, caps and PU's upgrade, I think it is a good alternative for a cheaper price.
Here are the pictures of the model I have sold 6 month ago.
