Up for sale, a Bacchus Craft Series TF4-STD ASH electric bass guitar in excellent condition and perfect working order. Hand-built in Japan, this bass features a lightweight ash body, one-piece maple neck, and Aguilar OBP-2 active preamp governing the humbucker pair. The bass has an impressive natural sustain and thump that translates well through the pickups, with Master Volume and Tone knobs, a pickup Blend/Balance control, center detent active Bass/Treble knobs, and a Preamp On/Off toggle switch. The sound is full and punchy, offering both the midrange complexity and note attack of the ash body, and the top end detail and cut of the maple neck and fingerboard. The neck position humbucker sounds big, round, and wompy with plenty of definition, while the bridge is more focused and midrange-forward. This Bacchus weighs 7lbs 14oz and has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 45-100 roundwound strings, optimal action, and spot-on intonation.
The one-piece maple neck has a slender C shaped profile with slight shoulders at the nut, filling out with more roundness and heft as you travel up the fretboard, measuring .800” deep at the 1st fret and .905” at the 12th. The maple fretboard sports black dot inlay and flawless stock medium jumbo fretwire, playing easily in every register with a straight neck and ideally adjusted truss rod. The scale length is 34”, and the bone nut measures 1 1/2“ in width, ensuring optimal sustain and articulation. The matching headstock features the Bacchus logo and a chrome set of tuners with large clover-shaped keys that turn smoothly and hold their pitch well.
On the body, the active electronics work as they should, the chrome hardware is clean as can be, and the black barrel knobs and pickup covers show sparingly little wear. The body features a thin Trans Blue finish that highlights the broad, dynamic grain of the ash body, with wear limited to some minor finish scratches and marks on the body as a whole. The neck profile sports a pristine satin finish.
The original Bacchus-branded padded gigbag is included.
