Bacchus...thoughts???

Recommended Posts

Hey I was thinking about getting a fender jazz bass but saw a really nice looking Bacchus jazz bass, I'm not too familiar with them. Any thoughts, comparisons???

There was a thread on Bacchus basses earlier this month. They look pretty tempting. Must resist 😎

Probably less so now and everything is so standardised by CNC machines but there will be higher quality materials etc used between series hence the price difference.

The older Japanese ones were all hand made. I am unfamiliar with the different series they have now but anything Japanese pre-2012 or so will never have seen a CNC machine.

Played a couple of Bacchus basses in the past and they were excellent. Great feel and tone. @thebassgallery usually have a few in stock if you fancy trying one out in person.

Late to the party, but I have a Woodline Handmade 5 and it's absolutely superbly made. I had a Sadowsky preamp put in and it's stunning.

I have a WL534 Global active in Olympic white winging it's way from Japan, or maybe chugging on a very slow freighter. The clear pickguard will be replaced with a pearloid black one, and I have in my spares bin a set of Hipshot Ultralite tuners  and if needed, an Audere 3 band pre. A few years ago I had a Bacchus HJB-5, and it was amazing. I had to sell it to fund an emergency so I'm real happy to have another Bacchus in my sights.

I've got some carbon wrap that I got to wrap a mountain bike. I might pinch a bit to wrap the pickguard on mine. I can never make my mind up about the clear ones Bacchus fit.

I tried my best to share the love for, and put the word out, about the Bacchus Craft Series WL-4 DX in blue available at BassDirect UK.

It was my way of fending off the unbearable GAS that I was having, hoping it would be gone the next time I checked. Nobody was up for it.........so it came home to me!

A quick switch to Sadowsky knobs (with a line marker) and a set up and I'd say it's the mutt's nuts.
