did you get your Tokai used? Because new, isn't the Bacchus cheaper?


No...bought the Tokai brand new from Japan a couple years ago - about $1300 delivered

The Bacchus was about $1900 delivered. The plaintop is a bit less expensive.


Ah, yeah, the yen has got really strong in the last year or so. Damn.

Sure has.... the current LS150 (160) is going for about $1700 USD on Kurosawa's site. You'll never be able to sell it for that much as well... crappy time to buy from Japan and a crappy time to sell anything with the economy being in the dumps. It's a buyer's market for used gear.... just depends on how badly someone needs to sell something.

Then I went a step further and installed the Faber locking alum tailpiece/studs and the ABR bridge with brass saddles/locking posts and it took a good thing and enhanced it even further. I put the Faber stuff on all of my Les Pauls because it really does make a difference.



Hey Marcus. Where did you get your parts from. I'm considering doing some upgrades with my Bacchus. I'm really curious as to how much of a difference it will make to it.

Makes a big difference. Over in Europe, you'll get your Faber gear from:

Here is my Bacchus Classic Series BLP '54 (it's a custom order with a thicker neck than the current BLP).

Wow, I have been waiting for a 54 to come out in that series. If it was a custom order, did you order it yourself? I may have to see about getting a goldie 54 if that is possible. Yours is amazing, nice choice!

In this order, there were 3 BLP '54, one black, one goldtop and mine.
I order it by the european importer.

Here is the '54 of another owner.


I have two Bacchus duke before this one (and many older Bacchus) and the quality is as good as a Duke.

Thanks for the information, that is interesting. I expected Bacchus to put some 54's out here since they are putting out the SG specials and LPs with mini-humbuckers but nothing yet.

I sent an email off to SOAR to see if they could order one for me so I will see how it works out.

I have a couple of Classic LPs here which are among the best guitars I have ever had. I'd love to get the 54 though in gold, that would be nice.

Your guitars are very very beautiful (the first one is... I can't find any word in my poor english to describe it) !

I like the mini-HB model too (in black !). And now I know the quality of this classic series, probably want to get the mini-HB model.

I think Deviser could make another run of '54 because some '54 would be ordered by frenchies in the next european importer order.

Hi Guys,

The other day I saw and tried a beautiful Bacchus BLP Classic....violin burst I recall.
That was the BEST Les Paul I have played in my entire life.
Question: The inlays seems like acrylic which is fine for me, but I wonder if the Bacchus logo on the headstock was acrylic as well?

Thanx!

Hmmm.. dunno. Mine looks like it could be MOP - lots of blues, reds, etc in it. But these days with synthetics, it's hard to tell. Doesn't affect the tone though ( )

Yep, tone is the deal. I was just curious about the material used for the logo.
