Every time I sit down to play this guitar, I remember seeing Ozzy from the shitty seats on the Diary tour. It was one of the first concerts I attended in HS.
For whatever the reason, it takes me there.

What we have here, is a mid to late 2000s vintage series bacchus flying v custom. These (like most mij bacchus and momose guitars) are built in small batches. This one is an early example as the logo is on the back side of the headstock.

As far as fit and finish, envision PRS attempting to build a replica of a flying V custom. Boom. That's the level of quality this thing exudes.

She was mostly a case queen and came with the warranty card, case, key etc. The only signs of use are some light aging on the pups and scratches on the guard. Weighs a 7.1 lbs on a very accurate luggage scale. I love those things for weighing guitars. mahogany body and neck, ebony board, lacquer finish, 12" radius, 1 11/16 bone nut.

Bacchus pups get a lot of hate, but generally i find they just need an adjustment or two to dial them in. That said, I hate the neck pup. I do have a set of vineham '59s that may find their way under those gold covers by summer. The bridge pup is fine though, very paffy.

Just for H4T3BR33D3R the abr screws directly into the mahogany body.

She rings like a bell. The R0 I sold to mmolteratx had the same kind of quality to it. Strike a note and the guitar made you play that note, it rang out and screamed "use some vibrato on this" right in my ear. So you do what the hell it's telling you and play it. Amazing thing when that happens.

pics play games with white guitars depending on lighting and the background, so here's a few in varying light.















While I didn't think this was a "grail" guitar when I was ordering it from 4,000 miles away based on some crappy cell phone pics by a guitar shop in japan, now that it's arrived I know selling this ever, would be a big mistake. I've done that before and regretted it, once. And I'm currently working hard on getting that one, or another exactly like it, back in the house.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

I wish I could hit that like button more than once.

I can, but then I'd just cancel my 'like' :c

I dislike V's, and I see this a very well constructed counter-argument.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

HNGD - that is a classy looking V
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

thank you all, i am really happy about this one.

from the original ad images, my impression was "oh dear, this is a gaudy mess but i'm sure it would flip fast if i hate it".
