I know. I was answering my own question as to which are the good models when i said Classic. I don’t think I’ve seen a single Vintage Series on YJ in the last month I’ve been checking the Bacchus search page every 3 or 4 days. I’m new to Bacchus and they seem to be so rare on YJ, at least, that I’m not sure i had ever even heard of the Vintage Series.The early models are supposed to be pretty good. I kinda like the Brian by Bacchus strat I have. I might even grab one of the higher end LP's eventually. It would probably need some hardware and electronics upgrades though.
The Classic Series are not the Universe Series, they're a higher quality guitar. I suggest you hunt down some Vintage Series guitars, I'm in love with mine.....still.
Didn't know that. I saw a few specials advertised with that off centre headstock and assumed they were still MIJ.The new ones are made in China. Give away is the right open book headstock, bell trussrod cover and no serial if I am right, on the MIJ ones. Sometimes they lack the "live road" script on the headstock...
Oh yeah i know the Classics are not that rare. I was talking about the Vintage Series, but now that it seems that the Vintage are their Fender copies that might be why I haven’t seen them on YJ. I haven’t been looking at any Bacchus Fender copies. I have my one beautiful Tele and that is all I need. The shorter scale andDidn't know that.

I have a Classic Special that showed up a few weeks back. I wanted noiseless P90s so I put in a set of mojotone quiet coils. They sounded lifeless and the original P90s were not that noisey. So now it is stock again. I am actually hunting for an extra set of P90s for my 54 style LP but Bacchus has not responded to my emails.
To the OP, the Classics do come up every few months. You just have to be patient. When I bought my special, there were actually 2 other p90 Classics that were up within a week or so.
There is a black LP with a bigsby currently:
Feel free to grab it. Wow that price is right. If I hadn’t just gotten a Tokai goldtop with p90s a week ago i would have bid on it without thinking about it for longer than 5 seconds.Yes, that should be MIJ from what I understand. It's a Craft Series (C serial number) but proably an early one that it still says Classic Series on the hs face.
I was admiring it myself.
I can't right now. Last week I had the kitten spayed and it was almost 3x more than it was 4 years ago when I had my other 2 done. Quite the unexpected price increase.Feel free to grab it. Wow that price is right. If I hadn’t just gotten a Tokai goldtop with p90s a week ago i would have bid on it without thinking about it for longer than 5 seconds.
