    Hi guys,

    Just wondering if anyone has BRJ shop photos they could share? There used to be loads about but then everything went funny with photo sharing sites and they seem to have disappeared. Im a big BCR guy and have recently started getting into the BRJ stuff but love seeing photos from inside the shop.
    Here's some to start!

    Cheers in advance!

    Not knocking your interest in BCR/BRJ at all, esp. cause BRJ made pretty good guitars early on, but a lot of people on this forum got burned by him in a pretty big debacle a few years back. Idk if there's much goodwill towards him here.

    Considering all of the terrible things he did to many members of this community, you may not find a lot of people both sharing your enthusiasm for his work, or his shop for that matter.

    Oh yeah Im more than aware of the chaos he caused, Im more trying to see what was actually built and is out there. So many guitars did leave the shop before the whole black friday events but theres hardly any details or info about them out there so just trying to find out more.

    BRJ is a huge piece of garbage. It is also said that a lot of his guitars were actually built mostly by a ghost company in Mexico. I would take one of his guitars for free.

    Since I wasn't around SSO at the time, did anyone from the Black Friday sale get a guitar? Also what's the story on his communication, did he just take the deposits and go dark? He's surfaced in the past couple years, how has no one confronted him?

    Have a read through this : http://sevenstring.org/threads/the-...-for-updates-for-by-customers-ad-free.138377/


    The Ricos have always been terrible business men. Jr never really resurfaced other than a stupid appearance at NAMM a few years ago now.

    I knew it would come up in this thread but hoping it can stay more about guitars
