: Has anybody ever heard of Bacchus basses? I've bought a five string fretless in Japan and was wondering what kind of reputation the they have.

: Thanks,

I tried a couple & found them to be of a very high quality. Hand finished & equipped with bartolini pickups, active circuitry. Swamp ash body, gotoh machine heads, what more could you want. I think they're up there with pedulla & sadowsky personally. I toured hard with a pedulla bass which has less spec than the bacchus I tried & the bacchus costs half the price! I have since sold my Pedulla.
One of the basses did have a small problem with the truss rod, but another was fine. I guess you just have to look carefully for any defects. THey are assembled by hand apparently so I guess mistakes can happen.
Hope your enjoying your fretless. Does it have bartolinis & gotoh heads?
