I think it was 2009 when he got his Jackson sig, ugly little thing that it was. I like eye-catching guitars, but the silver glitter looked cheap and reverse headstocks on RR Vs look unbalanced to me.

While I do not like Bullet for my Valentine or Matt Tuck at all (Emo/metal clash is not really my thing) I do not blame him for going to Bc Rich, they make some sick guitars, something I personally spent far too long ignoring, at my own cost!

think of it this way. you could have a room full of worthless douchebag darrel signature deans - jymellis

I love BFMV, one of the bands that got me into metal
This is gonna be interesting, I hope to God it doesn't turn out as an abomination, something not radical would be awesome.

If you only like a company because a certain artist plays for them, you don't like the company.

And quite frankly, I don't see anything worthy coming from this. Jr. V with SDs and a TOM.

Given how good my Pat O'brien signature JR V is, if the Matt Tuck one was priced well and not obviously a Matt Tuck model (no huge graphics or ....) I'd buy one, just to have a fixed bridge guitar to go along with my Floyd Rose'd JRV Icon.

That said, the Steve Smyth Bich 7 would be perfect to tune down to Ab...

What's up with all the douchers using B.C. Rich guitars now?

I like how they have the Stealth Pro (Floyd Rose, EMG's, Satin Blue) as the Icon/clicker for the Stealth series, then you click it and it isn't even in the selection The icon looks Satin-gun-metal-gray, then you hover over it and it's ....ing blue

He'll probably have some god awful graphics/inlays on his guitar... Maybe it can be the runner up for worst looking guitar just after Rob Flynns sig!

But this will do the company some good as every Emo fanboy will end up buying BCRs.

If they make a Terrance Hobbs or an Erik Rutan Signature, BCR will be forgiven. Seriously, they both deserve a sig.

First that horrific black veil brides abomination and now this? I agree with you, but at least they have Steve Smyth, Pat, and Kerry (we don't need to go into anything), to counter their non-metalness.

Also, a Rutan signature would be great, seeing as I would love a good quality Ironbird.

I randomly saw a Guy Marchais signature on ebay, but I don't see it on the BCR website.

It had 1 SD pickup and a kahler bridge.

I sometimes post over at the BCR forum and someone said that the Hobbs Sig was pushed back and should be out sometime next year hopefully. A Rutan sig would be SICK!

Both of them definitely deserve a sig.

An Erik Rutan signature model would be sweet. Black Gloss, bolt-on, OFR (black), dual EMG 81's, Ebony board with Diamond inlays, maple neck, NON-Beveled. I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

1. You have obviously never played a USA Select Jackson.
2. Jackson Has Chris Broderick now, how can someone NOT like Jackson?

I like his Rhoades a little bit, not my favorite but yeah. Shame to see him leave Jackson, they need more artists. But B.C. Rich makes good guitars though.

Why should I even care I do not like Bullet for my Valentine anyway....

Stuff from BCR that would be pretty cool:

White Warlock like Max Cavalera's



Terrance Hobbs sig

Rutan sig

Something US made at a reasonable price like $1200

There is a good Ironbird out at the minute, in terms of quality at least, the Ironbird Pro



Mahogany body, EMG 81, Floyd Rose Original Trem, Neck thru, Ebony Fretboard etc, pretty much the same specs as my JR V Icon, and the Ironbird costs less than 500 in the UK; at that price, those kind of specs are unheard of in any other guitar company here. Sure, it's Korean built, but don't let that fool you, from what I'm starting to understand is that whoever Bc Rich hired to build these things do not mess around or make half assed stuff. My JR V Icon can quite easily stand up to the quality of my Ibanez K-7 and my Crafted In Japan Fender Malmsteen strat.

As for a Rutan sig, I'd have one in a heartbeat, though I would like to see one offered in red, possibily with an "INSTA-GIB" sticker bundled in, so we could tool our Ironbirds up if we wished. On the other hand, I might rather hope that I could get mine to say "QUAD DAMAGE"

I just think the silver bevels, and bevels in general, look ....

I agree, I don't like the silver bevels. I love the red bevels on the JR V Icon, but even if the guitar was only one colour I'd rather still have it bevelled even if they were not coloured differently, they make guitars feel more comfortable to play for me.

I will say though, for the amount of time that Erik has been playing Bc Rich guitars exclusively now (it must be 10 years at least, surely?) he really deserves a signature model.
