+1, big thanks! A very good idea.

So this forum can include:

Bacchus
Built by Aska
Sonix
Headway (accoustics)
Deviser Special Specification:
-Evo
-Stun Rise
-STP
(never seen any of these)

Seventy Seven
Momose
Riverhead (old brand from the 80's)

There may be a couple more, I'm not sure.

Bacchus strat are very nice. Only thing is all the ones I've tried have C or U necks and I like V necks. In fact most japanese made strats I have tried have c or U necks. Only Tokai fit my taste.

Thanks Ned. An excellent addition to this fine forum.

My contribution - I believe it's a BST-64V as it has a cap board. The neck is really too fat for me, but I'm reluctant to let it go as it's such a high quality guitar, it feels and sounds like it should have cost at least twice as much as they usually sell for. Big, fat, warm sound - excellent pickups too.

I still prefer the slimmer neck on a RW board Goldie though.

I don't think it's Lake Placid Blue, so maybe Ocean Turquoise?

The maple necked Bacchus Strat's have big old V necks, I have a BST-54V and a BST-57-V both have nice big V profiles just like the originals they copy. The RW boards have C profiles, again true to 62 or 64 Strats.

The 60s Strats I've tried have all had necks closer to the profile of a Goldstar - a fair bit slimmer than a Bacchus. I'm sure there were fatter ones too, I just haven't come across them.

Looks the same as my old BST-62, I'd say LPB.

Thanks Ned for the new Bacchus section, I'm sure it will generate alot of interest in these not-so-vintage Japanese masterpieces!!

Here's my little Bacchus collection, Three Strats, a white, factory relic BST-57V, an Ocean Turquoise BST-64V, and a 2T sunburst BST-54V, that's actulally currently jointly owned between myself & Diodibuh

And my latest addition a BSL-59V Les Paul, that's is a fantastic guitar, and the lightest LP I've ever played weighing in at a tiny 7 1/2 pounds!!

Tricky question, I've just been playing my 1979 LS80 Goldtop, and it definetely has something the Bacchus doesn't! They are all great guitars though, I wouldn't say any of my LP's are 'better' than any of the others, but the weight of the bacchus is great news for my poor old back
