    Hi all

    Ive come across a used MIJ tele in a shop that I'm trying to get info on. Its Bacchus which I know put together excellent guitars but this particular tele also references Headway on the neckplate..... I cant remember exactly but it says something like Bacchus created by Headway. Has a humbucker in neck... massive slab of Ash I think with ebony fretboard.

    is this Headway reference normal on bacchus teles? If not, does it indicate age and what the actual specs might be? shop guys don't know much either. I know headway were the umbrella of bacchus, momose before they started Deviser but cant find info on web about "created by Headway" reference.

    Thanks

    Hi, Yes the Headway reference is normal for a Bacchus guitar. They used to make an Albert Collins tele, circa 2004, excellent guitars.

    That is an early MIJ Bacchus.
    I just got a Handcrafted which was the next designation MIJ Tele.
    The quality on these is superb.
    I have 3 of their MIJ Jazz Basses and they are killer.
    They favorably compare with my AVRI Fenders and a 65 Jazz Bass.
