DOUBLE ROASTED SERIES
Roasted ash body
The most distinctive feature of this model is the “double-roasted” design, in which not only the neck but also the body is made of roasted wood. The body is made of roasted ash, which gives the guitar a vintage-like sound with a good high-mid rise and quick response. The combination with the roasted maple gives a tighter attack.
Roasted maple neck
The roasted maple neck is one of Bacchus’ latest innovations, not because it hasn’t been seen before, but because it is rarely ever seen at such an affordable price. The roasted maple neck has many benefits such as offering a vintage look and sound and offering improved resistance to warping and twisting of the neck, giving better durability overall.
25-inch scale that produces an ideal amount of tension
For this model, we went with a 25-inch scale which is between a long scale (25.5 inches) and a medium scale (24.75 inches). The slightly looser tension than one might expect from the body shape and bolt-on construction creates a unique “loose” feel. This guitar is also recommended for players who feel that long-scale guitars have too much tension which makes choking difficult.
TL type single coil that matches the double roasted look well
The single-coil pickup matches the roasted ash body and toasted maple neck very well, offering a crispy, cutting sound.
Graphtec TUSQ nut
For the nut, we went with Graphtec’s TUSQ nut, which is highly regarded in terms of both function and sound. It also plays a role in tuning stability.
