Agree Marcus, my point is that Yutas or Alnico Specials could well just be different names for the same thing, and that there were variations in production details over the years. Mij says Yutas Suck, but to my ears they sound the same as the ones with flat poles.marcusnieman wrote:That 57 is gorgeous.
Bacchus is still relatively unknown here in the States. The thing I hear more about mine is "What is it? Can I play it?"
With all the discusson about the pickups, in my own pedestrian way, like Rich said, I think the pickups in it are some of the best strat pickups I've ever heard...... and for some reason, I'd concluded that they were Yutas. Now finding that they aren't, it doesn't change how good they sound or how damn well made that guitar is...... just love it.
I think i'm going round in circles
