Momose is sold, Bacchus still available.

For sale are Momose telecaster TL-52 and Bacchus strat BST-64V from vintage series.
Momose is in a player condition, has some dings and play wear but tons of natural mojo, comes with original hard shell case and is probably the best tele I owned/played. I'm a tele player and have owned tons of these guitars over the years, have gone mainly from custom shop Fenders to japanese telecasters of various brands. I haven't tried Crews teles but so far these are the best. Finish seem to be some sort of really thin nitro, as it is wearing on the few spots (check the pics).
There is some light flame figuring on the neck which pop depend of the angle and light, neck it self is to die for, pickups are one of my favorites, with tons of twang and superb clarity and bite, super light and resonant, like a proper thing should be. You must be wondering why I'm selling it then? I got two of them. And need some cash.
900€ + shipping (price is so low because of the cosmetics, otherwise it would be double the price).

Bacchus is another gem, we all know how great these Vintage series are, this one has been in a possession of forumate here, I'm sure he'll recognize it. ;)
Guitar is probably the MINTiest Vintage strat there is, 'nuff said.
Plays and feels like butter, again, it can easily compete with custom shop Fenders, have tons of those too.
I'm not completely sure about selling it but I need to raise some funds, otherwise I would keep both.
Comes with gigbag.
850€.
Thanks for looking.

I'd do 1250 euro for the members because it's a great forum.
I also have an LS-60 inkie in excellent condition with original case. I would like to keep them both and sell a synth instead but i have to find cash very fast.

Up for sale is this very low serial number Bacchus les paul classic series from 2011. Handmade by the skilled luthiers at the Deviser plant in Japan. The third one they ever made. Quite special plain top with lots of figuring going on. Nice fat 59ish neck. Very thin laquer as you can clearly see the pores in the wood. Weighs 4.15 kg. Great playability and sounds great. I replaced the original pickups with a set of Tokai (Gotoh) paf mk2 pickups. Clear improvement: rounder and more complex sound with less harshness and scooped mids. Almost up there with Momose, Nav and high end Crews in regards to playability, sound and overall feel. In great condition and has virtually no fretware. TRC is not original as are the strap buttons.

More pics
Will ship in a nice quality Gator hardcase and the original pickups will be included as well. Located in the EU.
1000 euro + shipping

You probably won't find a lower serial number Classic. Another very nice guitar that I miss lol.

Yes, a Bacchus or Crews plain top would do nicely I think. I read everything I could find last night on Crews.

Keep your peepers on YJ. I've seen a few Crews sell for good prices over the last few months.
