Even if it's their affordable line, I wouldn't expect sub-$1k.
Now I remember why I don't buy BC Rich guitars haha
everyone else can manage it - why not them?
It is pretty slick! The carbon fiber binding on the black is sweet, but on the green not so much. Slap a Floyd on it and have it be 25.5" and then its good for me. Let there be an IB in the exact same fuckin specs and I am sold.
They have been messing around with producing stuff in Indo. From what I have heard those gunslingers are not MIK. They are some Indonesian prototypes that will be tested for quality. New BCR wants these things to stand out amongst other guitar companies producing in Indonesia. Sure are they more expensive than others? Yes, most definitely, but they are putting better electronics in their stuff along with more attention to detail. Plus they are doing genuine neck throughs. Not a scarf joint at the headstock. From the headstock to the end is a full neck through.
They don't seem to be catering to the "I don't buy anything over $400, and then spend $600 replacing everything." crowd yet.
Eh, it's all marketing. Be sure to let Alembic know they're not making "genuine" neck through instruments.
If you knew how scarf joints are made, you'd realize how silly this statement is.
1) that's hilariously true
2) at least you can do it in drips and drabs
Scarf joints are in no way a negative thing. Pretty much all USA Jacksons have them. I much prefer it, and it has nothing to do with being a “genuine” neck thru or not. Aside from being stronger, there’s less waste too.
Warlocks look nice but I want the widow headstock. I’d like one either way
I don't understand how no one has mentioned the acoustic in those photos...
Well, it looks like your run-of-the-mill cheapie acoustic for 299$, I don't really see why it'd need to be mentioned.
It's also not the first BCR acoustic, at any price level.
I want one now!
Are all the guys at BCR aware that the numbers 24.75 and 25.5, when used in relation to a neck, typically describe scale length not fret count???
Or is this their bigger and better answer to the legendary Jackson 23-fretter?
not a very good picture but kyle gass also played a bc rich acoustic in alot of the tenacious d hbo series
At the Guitar store I work at in Ontario Canada we got in two of the extreme models, a warlock and a mockingbird.
I'm a huge B.C. Rich fan and have been since the 80's also have played them since then. I've currently got 3 vintage B.C. Rich guitars and a more modern USA custom.
These imports built in the Schecter factory and they feel and play quite well, especially after I set them both up. I'm not really into the Fishman fluence pickups but the people these guitars are aimed at will love them!
I knew something was weird about that Gunslinger. it's the Shredzilla shape.
I'm happy to see B.C. Rich doing a comeback with these guitars, but I also hope they will release a US line of guitars. I know about the custom shop (I got a CS Bich) but maybe they should make some standard models which might justify lower prices than what they charge for custom guitars.
whats the point on having soapbar active pickups on a multiscale if you are going to leave them straight?
the whole advantage of soapbar pickups is that theres no pole pieces to align with strings so you can slant the pickup properly for the multiscale angle without having to design a slanted humbucker
