I suspect that would be called "black pearloid".
not a fan of these block inlays (on a ironbird)
I can confirm it looks pretty nice. My Schecter E-7 has "grey pearloid" purfling. Pictures don't do it a ton of justice, but I'm usually turned off by purfling and I find it very non-offensive. It looks particularly nice on the headstock.
ymmv, but even in these pictures I like it, and it looks much better irl:
15% off discount when you join his facebook group.
Accompanied with the satin black it is gorgeous.
Grabbed my American Pro strat, was surprised how similar the build quality/feel is between the two.
BC Rich have been a shit show for years.
Coming back with attractive guitars for the first time in years - but charging $4500 for them, is NOT going to help business.
Surely you prove you are "back" first before you jump straight to crazy prices?
I thought the $4500 price tag was for custom shop guitars? I know I paid a little more than that when I ordered a custom BCR back in '06. I don't think that aspect is any more or less expensive than it's ever been, at least since the turn of the century.
Between my two zillas, they are definitely high quality guitars man.
For a USA guitar it is around the ballpark of what Custom shops are charging nowadays. Do I like the price? No I don't, but that is how much shit costs now. ESP, Jackson, Charvel, etc. are all up there in price bro
their mik guitars are sub 2k, which is in line with comparable schecters and esp EIIs.
Indeed, I still kick myself for not buying that delicious flame top purplish red warlock musiczoo had on ebay, I think the price was around 4699 (and I know I could have bought it for way less than that). Back then the dollar was still in the shitter too, ugh...
Yes but ESP, Jackson and charvel etc havent been dead for years. Infact its been the opposite. Their prices are justified by years of excellent quality and good grace.
BC rich dont have that going for them atm, and until they could prove they have turned it around they simply shouldnt have jumped to that amount. Who would really trust throwing that much at a BC Rich right now?
The BCR Custom Shop has been running quite steadily over the years.
It's operated somewhat separately from the production/import stuff since the early 00's.
You might also be conflating it with BRJ who, after sinking the ship a couple times, had nothing to do with actual BCR.
I also wouldn't use Jackson or Charvel as examples here. It wasn't too long ago that Jackson was bankrupt and Charvel was importing Schecter clones trying to stay relevant.
Ah was un aware of some of that. Was going by mostly reviews online.
My time in this thread is up haha
Daaaamn these look fine! That orange Ironbird and that green Warlock yum yum!
I wonder though when and if we'll see them in stores/online retailers anytime soon with the Corona virus situation.
Carbon fiber binding?
Well damn... now all they need to figure out is how to add a spacer lift, monster energy, or a BFGoodrich logo
And LEDs. Us Kyles love us some LEDs.
Considering the specs, these (ironbirds) should go under 1k I guess?
I wish that buying an Ironbird for home use wasn't the equivalent of having a medieval broadsword in your bedroom
