Been looking at Bacchus Woodline AC and Dragonfly Fat J basses in particular recently. They look very well made and
I recently played an Xotic XJ-1T which I loved also so it's out of the three!
Anyone have experience with these basses and know best place to order being based in UK? 😁
The good people at Ishibashi sent me this old Bacchus Grooveline. I reckon it’s early to mid-2000’s. I’ve been looking for a Stingray with a J neck size for a while and this really fits the bill. It’s a dinky J ash body, weight is a sweet 3.5kg. Maple neck with with blocks and binding is always a winner.
It’s a fixer upper and that was reflected in the price, but these Handmade logo’d Bacchii are always superbly built and the pickups are amazing. Such is the case here, it’s a really good player, even with a duff fret job, old strings and that criminal bbot bridge in place of the Deviser Tune-o-matic. What were they thinking?
I will sort out that crack and replace the bridge and broken tuner. I’m thinking of stripping what is left of the finish and refinishing in an emerald green stain. The previous owner had fingernails like Wolverine, by the looks of it. I’ll also sort out the frets, a level, crown and dress awaits.
Anyone know where a man can buy Gotoh tuner buttons?
Sad to see this go, but I need to update my PA system.
She's almost mint. No fret wear, and only one small ding. Neck is straight as possible. Plays like butter and sounds even better!

Handmade Bacchus P with Gotoh hardware. Body is slightly downsized, meaning it's light, very comfortable and made to an impeccably high standard. Nitro finished, side-dots on neck glow in the dark. A classy take on the P bass.
