Here I introduce my new Bacchus Les Paul Universe, guitar is made in China, and is part of the affordable products of Bacchus,
Guitar look is amazing, these are the specs:
Body TopBurl Poplar
BodyMahogany
NeckMahogany
FretboardRosewood
NutABS
BridgeT.O.M-Type
MachineheadsRotomatic Type
PickupOriginal Open Zebra HB
Control2Vol, 2Tone, Toggle SW
Scale628mm
Width at Nut43.0mm
Fingerboard Radius400R
FinishUrethane
StringRoundwound Strings .010-.046
AccessoriesGig Bag, Allen Wrench, COA

First thing I did not like were the pickups, the sound was not terrible but it did not fill my expectations, so I decided to install Gibson Burstbuckers pro (I do have a Custom with 490/498 and a R7 with Custombuckers, I wanted something different). With the Gibson pickups the guitar made a good quality step forward, now it is a rock guitar, with a full rounded sound.
And my next change will be the tuners, I´m thinking in Gotoh SG381...
Fretboard hydration is needed as well.

For the rest the guitar is very playable, and the weight is also a plus (3.7kg)

Attached some pics with the previous Zebra pickups and newest one with the BB Pro

Thanks for the review...they sure do a decent job on these for so-called "lower end" guitars.

#5 sure, guitar looks very special, the top is awesome, and guitar finish as well.
Is a good choice for me as second guitar in gigs.
