Bacchus BLP-STD FM Relic Looks Like the Rev's 'Pearly Gates'

Post by guitar hiro » Sun Mar 25, 2018 8:04 am

I have always been a fan of ZZ Top, their music, Billy Gibbons, and of course the mythical Les Paul that Billy received from Dusty & Frank decades ago, 'Pearly Gates.'

I have also been a big fan of many Japanese made guitars over the years, Bacchus being one of the many brands. I have seen a few Bacchus BLS & BLP models over the years, was digging around on the web, and I spotted something interesting.

I spotted a Bacchus Classic BLP-STD FM Relic that looks more like the Rev's 'Pearly Gates' than any other Bacchus I have seen. It's not exact but it's fairly close. It is an interesting maple top, to say the least.

Check the link below & check the fourth guitar from the bottom, H00832. What do you think; look like 'Pearly Gates' just a little? Cheers

I noticed the link above from 2011 & several other older Bacchus links are now inaccessible :-?

It seems like they scrubbed their web site of any Gibson style product

Oh well, H00831 is now officially on US soil :) probably in US Customs

I sure would like to get my hands on H00832 :lol:

Hard to believe it's been a year since my Bacchus BLP-FM Relic arrived :)

What a great Les Paul & I put it right up there with my (first run) Momose MLS-STD/J & my (other) custom order MIJ LPs too. :D

The bonus is the one piece mahogany back is highly figured, with some flame too 8) and the maple top looks so authentic; best I have ever seen on any Bacchus, period.

I am one lucky bitch :lol:
