Here's a very nice looking Bacchus LP:

Dunno if they ship internationally, but you could Rinkya it, right?

You mean the SRV? They're always more expensive, but worth it if you want the kudos of having a very limited production number model.

If you are patient and prepared to take a risk, you can find "player" Bacchus BSTs for 45k.

That 57 is a bit expensive for me here in Aus, but only due to the shipping cost. I have a choice of 2 or 3 BSTs locally for about 700 pounds, and I can play before I buy which is a major plus. If you are local to this guitar, go with a cash offer (seller will at least discount by the ebay and Paypal fee amount), and it would be a good deal.

Agree with JVsearch, and as the previous owner of the 57 I can vouch for the guitar

yes, buy some of those nasty 'Hand Maiden' or 'Crapt Series' or 'Grobal Series' that have all of the incorrect truss rods, head stocks, and 22 frets :evil: ...............

Er, no I didn't mean those at all, I meant BST Vintage Series.

I personally have no problem with the Hand Made Series or Craft Series guitars, they're excellent guitars with some useful modern touches (like truss adjust at the headstock). They may have made some changes but the spirit of the guitars is still the same as the Vintage Series, but then corksniffers will never believe that! :wink:
