    +1.

    Also, in the 2nd picture (black guitars), the 3 guitars in the back look like Speed V's. At first, I thought they were Jr. V's but upon close inspection, they don't have the angled tips that the Jr. V's have. Don't mind at all getting a black Speed V.

    I see the abalone binding and spalted veneers survived. I see a mockingbird with a giant ass evertune rout. I see a lot of ESP Vs for some reason.

    The spalted maple is past its expiration date and looks hideous with excessive abalone binding.

    I can see a couple of 7 (maybe 8) strings. Possibly a Mockingbird with evertune? So..that is starting to look good.

    They do have a 8 string strat in their lineup. Looks a look a Schecter. Top is red with all the binding and all.

    After a while the smaller wing angle and size of the JrV started getting to me. I wonder if the speed V is more of a regular V size? Also please no 3x3 ugly headstock.

    I mostly attribute the Speed V to the likes of the ESP NV and a few customs out there (ie: KxK) due to the straightness of the wings without any curves/angle changes/etc. and completely symmetry

    not really sure how it translates to overall size though


    but please if they legit bring back the Speed V in it's proper form (completely straight wings) in some basic colors (ie: black, white/cream, etc) I'll buy on release. idc which headstock I just want the proper body

    I don't own either of those shapes but people who do have stated that the Speed V/KKV shape is larger than the Jr. V. I think they say the Jr. V is thinner. In the picture below, it seems the KKV's horns are, indeed, a little larger than the Jr. Vs'.

    Red Blanket Guitars responded to some of the comments that inquired about Ironbird guitars and basses.

    For the Ironbird guitars: "No Ironbird? There will be an Ironbird 'One' available eventually. There may be something else coming too".

    For Ironbird basses: "Any Ironbird basses? Nope, maybe 2020".

    Hmm, maybe I anticipated a little more from them this time . Only one evertune, few 7 strings. But then again, I don't have the money or time for a new BCRich. I would like to try them out some time. To see if they are actually decent.

    I feel like this is a similar, but smaller, line up that they had 15 years ago.

    That 8 string headstock though, whoa..

    How about a Trey Azagthoth InstaGIB signature BC Rich? That'd be cool.
