Bacchus Universe Series Live Road BLP-Mini Metallic Green 2017
Bacchus BLP-Mini, metallic green, made in China 2017. Well... that's adorable. Bacchus guitars do exceptionally well on the local domestic Japanese market, but they've never made a real attempt to sell outside that niche. Frankly, the rest of the world is missing out; they're brilliant guitars. This mini LP features a 22" scale; it's a stack of fun to play and is supremely cute. It's built from proper tone-woods and features proper sturdy hardware, so it holds tune like a champ and plays very smoothly. The tone is very convincing; it certainly doesn't sound like a cheap and nasty instrument; there's plenty of sparkle and warmth on offer. The neck is small and would easily accommodate the hands of a child, but it's not so small that feels strange to full-grown folk. The green sparkle has a nice depth to it and is delightfully gaudy; it's certainly cool. Basically, it's cool, and it'll look great on your couch!
