    I found out about it yesterday. I found some pictures of him playing the Jackson guitar live from when they toured last year. At first, I thought he was playing his Ran V because they both have the Camo finish but then I saw the reverse headstock. I think it looks pretty cool. :cool:

    I also found pictures of Alex Webster with a beard, which is weird for me to see because I'm so used to seeing him without one.

    here's video proof as well. i liked his bc riches and i like this too. i guess he just has the one and its in Ab, because for Stripped raped and strangled he switched to the bc rich. im pretty sure they keep two guitars each in Ab and Bb and just use the Ab one for C# songs and the Bb one for Eb songs, so i guess he has the Jackson for Ab and the BC Rich for Bb

    Given the state BCR is in right now, I'm not surprised. The only sig artist they have is Kerry.

    I owned a BC Rich JR V Icon, the unofficial official Pat O'brien sig model, for the price it was absolutely fantastic.

    I know they also have Steve Smyth and Lita Ford, but I think them and Kerry are the only ones left

    Not sure if they changed things up, but as of the 2016 reboot of the brand, literally their only sig artist is Kerry.

    No way! What is Terrance Hobbs playing right now dude?
    BC Rich is a brand with so much wasted potential. I always felt the ASM could be their RG if they had the right management, marketing, top-down attention and support, artists, etc. Maybe Gibson should buy them - since Fender owns Jackson now it would be a good competitor and match to battle with them in the market. BC Rich got the body shapes and the name.

    The value of said name has been on a pretty sharp decline the last decade or so. The BRJ situation certainly hasn't helped.

    The only folks who were keeping BCR alive are a dying breed. I don't think the body shapes are enough to keep BCR going.

    I know I'll never buy a BCR given all the drama.

    I'm REALLY surprised he hasn't. There's no way BCR has the capital to stave off ESP for too long. :lol:
