Here is an interesting Bacchus being offered as a prototype on Yahoo Japan.
Looks like a Neal Schon (Journey) Les Paul.

https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/b403921485

This looks like it is from the BLS-95 era of Bacchus production so, my guess is this is circa 1996/1997.
Could this be a 'one-off?'

Wow, someone REALLY wanted that one; Rinkya ending price was 155,000 yen aka $1,462 USD.
YJ shows the Bacchus went for 99,900 yen aka $942 USD.
That's a huge difference; how does that work?

Visible attributes that IMO indicate this example is from the BLS-95 era of production:
*rounded neck heel carve
*bridge type
*molded pick guard
*no serial #
All typical attributes from the BLS-95 era

Attributes that were not visual in the listing such as the mahogany section of the body & the tenon, I am guessing will be:
*off-set/medium tenon (non long tenon)
*2 piece/center seam body

If someone here got the Bacchus congrats
