    Not a lot of talk about the Telecasters (or Strats) compared to the MIJ Les Pauls/SGs.

    These come in at roughly the same price, though different specs (Tele Custom Bacchus, standard Edwards) - are the two makers pretty much even in terms of quality?

    Safe to say both compare well to MIA Fenders?

    I've never played a Bacchus, but they are held in much higher esteem in Japan than Edwards.

    I definitely like those Bacchus guitars. They look great, both the strats and the duke models. Tomo said the Bacchus guitars are really nice. That's definitely a +1 in my book.
