The -Craft series- is Bacchus’ ultimate expression of the phrase “Bang for your buck” bringing the best cost-performance that we could possibly get.
The Tactics family is among the most popular ones among the craft series.
This time, we bring you a thorough analysis of this Tactics family!!
We’ll go into fine detail analyzing features that aren’t even on the product pages.
First, let's take this TACTICS DX-ASH apart!
I wonder what kind of parts we will find!
It turned out to be something like this~
It is composed of surprisingly simple parts.
Let's take a look at each one of them!
A detailed look at the pickups!
A soap bar type Bacchus STP-1 is used for the front pickup. With Alnico 5 magnet, that use #42 urethane wiring.
It has a resistance of 8k, and features a tone that is harmonious and deep.
A VT-1 pickup that is commonly used in our Momose brand, is installed for the rear pickup with Alnico 5 magnet that use #42 enamel MWS wiring.
With a resistance value of 6.5k allowing the characteristics of the material and the instrument’s uniqueness to shine and output naturally.
Also, it allows the player to express the nuance of their style while playing.
Stable GOTOH parts
For the bridge we have GOTOH Ti-TC1S’s.
Side cuts have been applied to significantly reduce the chances of it interfering with your picking.
Titanium is used for the saddle, and you can expect rich overtones and long sustains.
The string groove is also particularly worked on to improve octave tuning accuracy compared to a vintage style saddle.
For the machine heads we went with GOTOH SG360’s,
The gear ratio is "1:14", which allows for quick tuning.
You can expect a great experience with great stability from these Japanese made machine heads.
Intelligently designed to improve playability
The waist and elbow areas are contoured for more comfort.
The fit of the whole body is improved and the part where the elbow touches the instrument during play is trimmed.
This really helps you play without stress.
In addition, the joint part has been tapered to improve the performance of the high frets.
Since the guitar is made of wood, the condition of the neck changes depending on the storage method and the change of temperature and humidity of the season.
Sometimes these factors can cause problems in the neck that result in the string height being too high or buzzing occurring, which makes having a good performance a difficult task.
It is equipped with an easy-to-access truss rod and can be easily adjusted with the included wrench.
* Expert knowledge is required to accurately determine the neck condition. It may be damaged if you turn it too recklessly, please be careful.
With a typical 3WAY switch, changing the pickup while playing means making a long stroke and can be difficult.
Since it is a toggle switch in the TACTICS models, operability is improved.
Since it is easy to switch to the pickup configuration during a performance, all the options are available to you at the flip of a switch.
