All I'm getting from this thread is that Vinnie Vincent discontinued Hide's 11-polepiece pickups.
Yes, may we return to our cloistered ruins to contemplate the meaning of the greatest question of all time. Which wouldst be greater the Ironbird or the Stealth which begat him?
someone add a poll...

Speaking of Ironbirds... Just saw this on the B.C. Rich: U.S. custom shop Facebook page.
I believe this is the first B.C. Rich electric guitar that I've seen without any volume/tone knobs.
I still say the “early” harpoon headstocks are the best looking...I’m lucky to have an ‘86 usa Ironbird with a harpoon that I’ve had since ‘94 that I’m refinishing right now. NJ series (Japanese, and SOME Korean) Ironbirds from ‘84-‘92 can SOMETIMES be found with these headstocks as well -and they are the rarest and coolest looking IMO
That Tony Iommi Ironbird is the one I always lusted for a right handed version of.
This seems like a nice place to put this....
Those early NJ’s are some of the best shred guitars for the money to this day
They really are. my 85 NJ ST plays better than my Rg550 and is interesting in that its a 24.625 strat. the pickups arn't great but thats an easy fix.
That plus a very stout kahler addiction led to those three and a mock that is going to get a new kahler or refinish and back to quad not sure yet. Oh and a Warlock neck that needs a new rod and board.
All early BC Rich’s had weird scale lengths...they’re always somewhere between 24.5” and 25.75” lol
Those are yours?...nice!!
Yup been nabbing them up since the early 2000s when the prices were low lol
Cool, I’m retopping my ‘86 harpoon usa Ironbird as we speak. I sold a handful of NJ’s over the years that I wish I still had. I’ll never part with my Ironbird, it’s the only BCR I’ve kept over the years
Show everyone the top you have picked for it. It looks pretty stellar.
My phone won’t compress my pics...go ahead, throw it up (just kill the audio lol)...I’ll definitely put up some pics of the build and a NGD when it’s done
Thanks, I’m super proud of that piece...one of the nicest slabs of curly black walnut I’ve ever seen, it’s going to look unreal bookmatched
Whoa..... If I only had the $...
