    I hate that inlay, but I like the lights... Too much Kyle in my blood, I guess.

    All I want is a white or red Ironbird to exclusively play Bolt Thrower riffs, pls and thank you.

    I'm not seeing the downside here. :shrug:

    I'm a sucker for silly little things like that. I also really like V-Man's headless bass with the glowing red inlays/side dots. I honestly wish it were a more common feature, but I do tend to kind of like gaudy things like big dumb inlays (sometimes) and flashy junk that lends nothing to the playability. lol

    I’ll admit I love that carbon fiber binding on the black guitars. Looks pretty cool. And I’m not much of an Ironbird guy but those last few posted are really awesome. Grabbed my attention immediately, in a good way this time too! May be making a convert out of me yet, but I’m digging pretty much everything they are putting out these days.

    Gunslinger baybeeeeee

    [​IMG]

    "Hey BC Rich Fam ! Sooooo this is a Gunslinger 2.0 prototype for the Prophecy Line (Don't worry - We'll do a run of the original 22 fret legacy version too) BUT this one will be a 24 Fret Neck Through, Sharp, No frills Modern double cutaway... Keep in mind we are still working on this, volume knob will probably move a bit lower etc... but beyond that: should we tilt the pickup as a nod to the original Gunslinger or keep it straight? Should we scalop the 21-24th fret ? What's your vision for the Gunslinger 2 ?"

    Volume lower and back, side inlays only, 24 fret neck thru, scalloped 21-24... Prefer tilted pup but wouldn't matter either way. I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

    Holy shit this is going to be a rough year for down-selection and acquisition. Too much good stuff!

    But aren't they going to be like 25.5"? If so, phooey! Make a MIK at least 7 string Mockingbird or Bich w/ a 27" and I will buy one on the spot.

    I would tolerate a shorter scale just to have a 7 string ironbird in a garish color.

    I've been jamming suffocation lately which has given me major warlock gas.

    aaaaanndd the used market for bc rich sucks! even the cheapo chinese warlocks are going for twice their worth with chips and dents all over the horns

    never thought i would regret not buying a $300 bcr before they went under, i just want the shape to use for modding and fuckin around with

    maybe i should learn how to carve wood during quarantine

    Keep an eye on MusicGoRound. They get solid NJ stuff for <$300. If you're desperate for a project, Bronze stuff starts at like $50.

    Looks like they will be scalloping a couple of frets that aren't there. Unless they messed up the inlays, that is 22 frets already.

    This is the best looking Warlock they have ever released.

    Inline headstock - Tick
    No horrible MOP Binding - Tick
    Direct Mount pickups - Tick
    EMGs from stock - Tick
    Single Volume - Tick
    Blank Ebony Board - Tick

    I mean Jesus H Christ.
    Presumably this is one of the priced ridiculous models?
    If this is sub 1K even I would be interested and I really shouldn't be
