    It's been a few Months since it disappeared now, but does anyone know why this website, with all the great information on early Navigator LP's vanished? :hmm: I found it to be very useful, and it's a bummer when stuff like that goes "POOF", and is gone. :shock: Makes me wish I would have...

    Back-bowed Bacchus, now what?

    So, my Mango wood Bacchus LP Special that I got a few weeks ago has had plenty of time to acclimate. Some of you may remember that I mentioned that the neck was back-bowed when I was first checking it out, and tuning up for the first time. Figured I'd let it get used to around here, then see...
