    That is so pimped out in terms of specs it's ridiculous lol. Even as an import it's going to be pricey, let alone a USA model.

    EDIT: It says Made in USA in the back of the headstock.

    I know they had to make it for a broader audience..but Rutan seems to be a 1 pickup kinda guy. Wish they had stuck with that, but then again it's not like I was gonna buy the thing so who cares what I think.

    Oh yeah..he removed the knobs, not the pickup. It's late and I'm half delirious.

    I can attest to the very high quality and materials of the Legacy Series based on my Bich. That's right, I didn't call her "B" and B.C.R. now does. :gayfight:

    Bich.jpg

    I am hunting for the Floyded Legacy Mockingbird next, although they are still impossible to find and asking ABOVE MSRP, which is no go in my book. They thought of everything and use the best materials and have beautiful fretwork. And the Dimarzio D Activators are killer!! However, I think a 25" scale would be perfect for the classic series (at least for my big mitts), and would be perfectly ok with 25.5", although that's a personal preference. If I ever custom order one, it will be either 25 or 25.5".

    I would also love to see them do new MIK versions of the Assassin and Gunslinger. Come on BCR!!!! :mega:

    What kind of foot controller is that? Don't think I've ever seen that one.

    Ah, found it: FU-2

    This all just makes me sad for Pat again. Poor guy. Man it could you imagine how insanely off the rails CC would be with Rutan and Pat as guitarists?

    They're doing an import Chuck sig, there will be an import Erik Rutan sig. This just gives me hope for more BCR 7s. Definitely the biggest score they've had in a while.

    Yep I thought this, but if its to suit "current Rutan" then its to fit with Cannibal Corpse duties. Unless its just an attempt to spec a model up using parts they already have in the parts bins...

    lowkey hyped for the rutan 7. Though at the rate bcr is putting out guitars I don't have much faith that it'll be in stores til next year.

    Yeah I thought in general he never used 7 strings, and his famous Ironbird has Dimarzios (X2n?) right?

    Apparently Erik used one for Upon Desolate Sands (Hate Eternal's last album, which was fucking sick) and he's using it for cannibal corpse because his 24 5/8" scale 6 strings aren't cutting it for B flat or whatever the hell CC are tuning to anymore.
    Chondro Guitars said import line and USA models will be available. No 6 strings except for a prototype apparently.

    I think CC is just that much more commercially viable than Hate Eternal. :shrug:

    I like everything but the Fishman's. Rutan sig needs an X2N or Distortion.
