I own this bass for 2 months now, great instrument. Never played a Fender Custom Shop, but I prefer the Bacchus over my Fender American Standard. Craftsmanship is impressive. Nicest fret work I’ve ever see. Fairly light too, 7,7 pound with my luggage scale.
I was a bit nervous about the finish, but my black oil finish is gorgeous. Suppose to improve the sustain and sound too, cannot tell for sure? But having no fingerprint all over the place is a plus.
Love the electronics. Active\passive switch. The active preamp from Aguilar is very effective. A little goes a long way. I never thought I would use so much the tone knob in active mode. I find myself boosting a bit of bass, leaving treble and rolling off the tone instead. But when it is time to Slap, I find a good use for that Treble knob! Switching from passive to active is nearly inaudible if all knob are neutral.
This is now my #1 bass.

These Craft basses are every bit as good as a Fender Custom shop Jazz and are half the price. Record like a dream, with perfectly straight necks and you can achieve very low action if needed. Incredibly clear and punchy Jazz bass tone.
