(SOLD) Bacchus Handmade BFV-2010M Brown Oil 2010
Bacchus BFV-2010M, brown oil finish, made in Japan 2010. V. nice! This is a limited run high end V-style, made entirely by hand by Topshelf favourites Bacchus. It references the earlier Vintage Series BFV-58 model, but this was part of a limited run of twenty guitars produced with super high specs a few years later. First up, it's very light: at 2.6kg, it's a featherweight champ and rings like a bell to prove it. The neck is a moderate slim taper style shape, akin to a Gibson 'slim 60s' shape and blessed with a gorgeous dark streaky rosewood board. The original pickups were replaced with some hotter humbuckers, which deliver the goods: the thing sounds juicy. It's full and thick, but with an airy complexity through the midrange with awesome note separation. This has turned plenty of heads in the shop already, the thing looks classy as a heck. Vindicate your very viable values and claim this excellent prize.
