Easy to handle headless construction
Be it during a live performance, rehearsal at a studio, recording, or just practicing at home, the headless construction employed in this model presents great handling regardless of the situation. Its length is close to the one of a regular electric guitar. providing excellent portability when carried in a gig bag. The contoured slim body inherited from the Bacchus WOODLINE family is easy to hold and allows for comfortable performances even over extended periods of time.
Special control layout
The control layout was designed based on H.J.Freaks’ requests, having, as a result, a special layout that is equipped with a 3 band equalizer and passive tone that allow for a great variety of sounds. Both active and passive tones provide you with a wide range of useful sounds to work with. The kill switch and passive/active switch are both located near the bridge for quick and easy access. The output jack is not located on the bottom, but rather on the top in order for the shielding to not interfere when placing the instrument on its stand or the floor, and also facilitating the handing of the bass, overall creating a more convenient user experience.
Aguilar Pickup & Preamp
From our wide selection of pickups and preamps, H.J.Freaks chose a combination of the Aguilar Hot Jazz pickup and the OBP-3 preamp. With its 6mm diameter alnico 5 magnets, the Hot Jazz pickup is a very balanced pickup capable of producing very powerful results while maintaining a pure sound that allows for any kind of player to introduce their own nuance into their music. With the Aguilar OBP-3 preamp, you have the possibility of pulling up the middle pot in order to switch the frequency from 400hz to 800hz, allowing for a wide range of different sounds.
Equipped with a Jim Dunlop flush mount strap lock right out of the box, the strap is sure to hold strong. With a made in America headless system (Bridge & Headset) from Hipshot that is compatible with single ball-end strings. giving the user a wide selection of strings to choose at their own preference.
Brandishing Bacchus’ emblematic ash wood body, with an elegant oil finish. It allows for a rich raw sound thanks to its open-pore finish.
DR Hi-BEAM stainless steel strings
Featuring H.J.Freaks’ long time favorites, DR Hi-BEAM stainless steel strings right out of the box. Stainless steel strings have superb durability while providing a bass with range to cut through any mix.。 .
