I recently purchased a Bacchus Vintage Series Strat that is a replica of the SRV 'Charley' guitar but there is no warranty card.

Considering the serial number on the example I purchased I'm guessing it is from circa 2004.

I contacted Deviser Corp. and they do not know the actual model name.

I scoured the Bacchus section here at the Tokai Forum to find the info but found nothing.

Looking for anyone that has a matching warranty card for this Bacchus model with the model name stamped on the card.

Here is a link to one example (not the one I purchased) of the guitar in question.

I know it's like looking for a needle in a hay stack but thanks for any help

I PMed TF member 'sneakyjapan' because I located a post in which he stated he had a Bacchus 'Charley' Strat.

Bad thing is, sneaky has not posted here in over four years.

After some (more) digging I did find this

I knew they didn`t use their own p`ups exclusively because my bacchus SRV Charly copy has Crews lipsticks in it.
I`m gonna search the Japanese web and see what comes up for Yuta.

That's a rare one..... I've only seen pics of them before.

I do have the Fender Japan version of it though.

When I have time available I have been doing a lot of digging for info on the Bacchus 'Charley' Strat on the WWW.

I came across this post from another forum; dated from 10-11-2005, from a member 'sneaky.' Next to the bottom post in the chain.
https://www.thefenderforum.com/forum/showthread.php?21913-new-Stratocaster-CIJ
"I have an MIJ Charley copy too but mine is made by Bacchus and guess what...they only made 12."

That has to be the same person as our TF member 'sneakyjapan.'

If there were only 12 examples produced (who knows) then I can imagine locating a warranty card with the actual model name stamped on the card would be nearly impossible.

I have seen the guitar referred to as BST-SRV Charley from two different online sources but that is not definitive IMO.

Yes I'm pretty sure that's our Sneakyjapan .....

Good luck on the hunt for info.... if they only made 12, that's very nice catch.

The Bacchus is still in Tokyo but will be shipping some time within the next two weeks.

I thought the photos of the fingerboard look like Madagascar rosewood but the more I look at the photos the more I see similarities in the fingerboard lumber like my 2004 Momose MLS-STD/J (Jacaranda).

I think this Charley Strat might have a Brazilian fingerboard.

Both guitars are from the same time frame & same production facility.
