I'm fairly new to the MIJ LP guitars so I do not know all the makes and models that are out there. I'm trying g to decide on my next MIJ LP. I have an interest in the Bacchus Duke guitar series and i have been speaking with a owner who has one for sale. I've read quite a lot on this series of guitars. I like the fact they are a 1 piece back and neck and no poly finish. My question is what other makes and models are comparable to the Bacchus Duke that can be had for under $1200.00 new and used? I am using $1200.00 as my budget cap. By the way i own a 79 Tokai LS50 which i love but looking for a non poly finished guitar for next buy.
