Bookmatched? How wide is that slab??
I've been saying for the past 3 or 4 years, that they COMPLETELY dropped the ball on the superstrat revival. If they had done EXACT spec USA Gunslingers, even with many of the old graphics, they would have made a killing.
Whoever takes over (if ever), they need to go back to the basics. Get rid of these stupid-ass widow, or whatever, headstocks, stick with the harpoon and original 3x3, and go back to the original 4 or 5 shapes PLUS the Gunslinger. Period.
About 16” across in the middle and 2” thick...just too small for a 1pc top, I think a bookmatch with the flame would look killer though
How is that too small? Most bodies are 12-14". Unless I missed that you're building a V/Warlock.
I blame the widow headstock for their image slide...
Ironbird, and I’m going to pull from the best spot in the figuring...I’ll see what I can do after I bandsaw it
Ah, say no more. Much bigger body. CANNOT WAIT to see that done!!
I think other than the Bich, Neal Moser’s guitars are truly ugly. He has his own clientele (I guess) and BCR, if it chooses to continue under that name should stay away from Moser’s designs and I agree should stick to the core, classic shapes and headstocks, perhaps stripped down modernized metal versions similar to Ibanez’s Iron Labels (minus the complaints lol)...something about the Rico Jr’s, Moser’s, and even the DBZ’s all had this weird binding and plastic-y finishes and Dean-meets-BCR look that started to homogenize and look cheesy thus killing the classic BCR look with it. Bring back the classics...
And minus the shitty Quality control too
No way, BC Rich without outlandish shapes is like a giraffe without a long neck. The more pointy bits, the better. If Moser gets a hold of BC Rich, a BC Rich Morpheus would be the coolest thing ever.
Blackie Lawless' Warlock from the early WASP years is a thing of beauty.
I just saw in my YT feed that Tone King did a 1 hour and 20 minute video with Phillip McKnight on rumors of Slash buying BC Rich. Whatever happens to BC Rich can't be worse than this. I took the appropriate measure here, made sure to nuke TK videos from my feed.
Get rid of McKnight as well.
Does anyone have any recommendations for string brands for the Quadmatic bridge? Just gave my Beast a string change for the first time, and restringing with a set of GHS Boomers (which is the brand the previous owner said he used), the ball-end twists of the low E are sitting on the saddle, which strikes me as something that could cause problems down the line. Or am I just being paranoid over nothing?
i nuked that fat fuck after he took a shitty ibanez XXV1 and paired it against a kiesel aries, and basically felated the aries to climax, and bashed ibanez like you can't imagine.
Tone King has got to be one of the most ironic YouTube channel names.
You just need to set the bridge slightly further back and then innotate
That Tone King video was nothing more than 2 blokes making stuff up. They have no idea trust me. Neal Moser has been providing electronics for Ron at the CS as part of the team for the last few years now and is always there to provide support when needed.
Trust me, the right people are now in positions to take BCR forward.
I've heard that half a dozen times the past few years. I'm not holding my breath.
Thought some of you guys who like B.C. Rich Stealth guitars may like this. This photo is from their U.S. custom shop Facebook page.
You can't tell in the picture but the fretboard is scalloped. I believe this might be the first B.C. Rich, U.S. custom shop guitar to have a scalloped fretboard but I'm not sure. They have more pictures on their Facebook page as I just chose the one I thought is the best.
