OP, here is a little bit about my opinion of a new Bc Rich
NGD - warning, death metal guitar ahead
In short, awesome specs and fantastic build quality for the price.
Vs and star shaped guitars are usually quite comfortable to play sitting because you can hook the spokes of the guitar under and over your right thigh. This generally elevates the neck to a 45 degree angle from the floor, so it's sort of a classical position and is good for your technique and avoiding wrist injury when playing.
The Ironbird Pros look really good, I considered getting one but went for a Jr V Icon instead.
