    If they would of taken better pics i'm assuming it would of sold quicker than it did. I missed out on that Crews LED guitar that just sold on Rinkya, by a few days. But im pleased.

    I did some reading on the Bacchus and knew it was a well built guitar, plus its had some upgrades. Im sure it will be a good player as well. Now to get it past the ole lady!! She even asked me if I was done buying guitars when I unboxed the Momose. I said "I'm officially done as of today" lol.........

    It is actually lighter in natural lighting, I've tried to capture the way it really looks but my camera didn't capture how it really looks. 20171201_121928.jpg

    Congratulations, you are happy now, in a few weeks you will be over the moon that you bought this guitar, it just gets better and better. They are just amazing my MOMOSE MLS1-STD/NJ FCS weighs in at 8lb 3oz. I must admit that I took some time with it to get the sound that I wanted, for some reason the Beano Pickup on the neck sounded to deep for me. I tried a PG, a Seth, a 57 classic and eventually settled on a SD SH2 that works a treat. I also changed my Momose MLS1-STD/NJ LTB to Seths and they sound great, obviously the look different but the LTB is over 1 lb heavier. Amazing that two identical cars made one year apart have such a large weight difference. Enjoy it, I do every time I look at it.

    Jock did you change your tail piece as well? I remeber some one in a past thread/post they didn't like the tail piece on their Momose, wondering if that was you.

    I've never had a guitar as resonant as the Momose, even my 2008 Gibson Les Paul standard wasn't as lively sounding as the Momose.

    No, all I have done is change the Pickups and added Schaller straplocks and tried not to smile so much when I her so many people complain about their Gibson Historic's. I did get it Xrayed along with my Bacchus classic.

    So are they chambered then? I have a 99 Bacchus Live Road BLS 120 as well. Wondering if the 2 Deviser guitars are chambered or not.

    That is amazing. What colour did you get her in?

    EDIT: The translations of Japanese websites always amuses me. On the page you linked it refers to the Mojotone 59s as "Handjob pickups" hahahaha. A whole new meaning to creamy tone!

    Did you get to choose if it is weight relieved or are you able to specify the weight?
