The eagle has landed! *lots of pics*

Post by Hansi » Tue Jun 01, 2010 11:04 am

Finally got to pick up my 'new' BLS-120 from the post office yesterday so I thought I'd snap a few pics as I cleaned her up a bit and re-strung her with a proper set of thicker strings. Very happy with the purchase so far, plays and sounds great. Only imperfection I've noticed is the center seam of the 2-piece top. Surprisingly it's also lighter than my Edwards. Original pickups sound pretty good too though I'll probably drop in a set (haven't decided which ones) of double cream Bare Knuckles at some point just because BKPs have always made everything sound even better... :P

Enjoy! :D

Beautiful guitar. Don't spoil it with exposed-coil pickups. :wink:

Nice...dunno about the gold hardware though would change for nickel and zebra humbuckers

Ive had my Duke Premium for a month now and very impressed with the play ability & quality, cost me a lot less than what i paid for my Tokai ls75 (12 years ago)

Will be searching for more Bacchus
enjoy your BLS120
