  1. If of further interest, I can try and measure the ohm value to give an indication of how the are wound. Just let me know.
  2. Morning. They are in-house Bacchus Custom P. Remarkable clean and even sounding PU`s. Just a slight twist of one of the volume pots, and the sound changes. Same with moving the right hand position where the strings are played.
  3. I`d actually categorize it more as a supercharged passive Jazz, with plenty of Omphh but still clear as a grand piano. A bit torn about whether to keep it. Only reason it shouldn`t cost as much as say a used Mike Lull (which I played earlier)is that Bacchus isn`t particular well known in Europe, contrary to Asia.
  4. New price: 1000£ New listing as previous was priced incorrectly, plus addition of spare set of PU's. Open to offers and trade with other 5 string. Willing to add money for the right instrument. Hi All This is an elder 2011 bass that very likely never has seen a rehearsal room, nor a scene. It is as new part from one tiny ding on the rear of the neck, and some surface marks on the edge of the body from resting in a stand. 34" scale, 44mm nut width, 18mm string spacing, 4.4. kg and passive. Ash body stained in a nice brown color with matching scratchplate, which, stills has the protective film attached Ash neck with rosewood fretboard with beutiful inlays. Slightly tapered profile from a flat D in the upper rigister to a more soft C shape at the head. Quite nice actually. Furthermore there's a Tortoise binding along the edge of the neck. High quality passive electronic parts, dead quiet but still room enough for an onboard pre-amp like a John East model. I have a pair of new Kent Armstrong HB5E3N/B pick up's which fits in the slots for the existing PU's. They'll be supplied along with the bass as part of the buy. I've found a youtube link containg this model in a 4 string ash fretboard version. Due to the playing style of the reviewer it doesn't really indicate the versatility and quality of the instrument. The second link, despite a different, and lower prices model, is better. Price contains a 50£ reserve for shipping, if above we split the rest. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xICAjwAd4V0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhsX29DnLTg Kind Regards Thomas
  5. Hi All In an effort to save up for another bass, up for sale is my Bacchus Super Woodline 5 . This is an elder 2011 bass that very likely never has seen a rehearsal room, nor a scene. It is as new part from one tiny ding on the rear of the neck, and some surface marks on the edge of the body from resting in a stand. 34" scale, 44mm nut width, 18mm string spacing, 4.4. kg and passive. Ash body stained in a nice brown color with matching scratchplate, which, stills has the protective film attached Ash neck with rosewwod fretboard with beutiful inlays. Slightly tapered profile from a flat D in the upper rigister to a more soft C shape at the head. Quite nice actually. High quality passive electronic parts, but room enough for an onboard pre-amp like a John East model. I've found a youtube link containg this model in a 4 string ash fretboard version.

Trade value 1500£ as the retail for well above 2000£ new. Kind Regards Thomas
  6. Updated with more high resolution pictures.
  7. Replied to libanass in a PM as the dialogue expanded. I'm actually uncertain of the age, potentially around 8-10 years. I bought it through Lefay directly as the former owner had ordered another instrument from them. Collected it myself at their workshop in Northern Germany and got a lovely chat with Reiner & Meik. Wonderful people!
  8. Thanks Guys. Let`s see if we can find someone for whom 5 strings are enough 😀
  9. Suggest we get this thread back on track - Damn nice bass, and I`m sure it will make its way to a new owner one way or the other! 😉
  10. Bass Player Magazine once did a very comprehensive test of Jazz Bass pick-ups which clearly indicated quite som differences in balance of the frequency spectrum from thick or thin bottom, in your face- or reduced midrange and sizzling treble or simply rolled off top. But, if you like me have a tendency of always dialing in the same sound, irrespectively of the instrument and amp I play, it probably doesn`t matter that much. I recently came across a youtube link with a guy slapping on a Bacchus bass and must admit it`s the best slap sound I`ve ever heard, so don`t think changing PU`s is the first area of attention with this brand. Sorry for hijacking the thread

  12. Had it been a 5 string I would have bought it on the spot. Send me a PM if you have anything this caliber in 5 strings. GLWTS Thomas
  13. As can be seen in my Avatar I had a 5 string Warrior Dran Michael a couple of years ago. What you are getting with these instruments is Fodera, Alembic, Ken Smith etc. quality at a fraction of the price. Mistake of my life was selling that bass!
  14. How are these short scale basses with slapping? Can you still get a good thumb sound despite the shorter scale? I'm tempted!
