Anyone have more pics of this V?
Also, interesting notes from Mick about the QC at BC Rich that made him leave for Ibanez. He spec'd a future signature Bich with a longer scale and a Kahler tremolo. They sent him a short scale guitar with a neck angle for a Floyd Rose but with a tuneomatic instead and no string ferrules, so the strings have dug way into the body.
The luthier just couldn’t bring himself to build such a stupid guitar right (widow headstock on a bich? Edgelord “HATE” inlays? Ick). So he fucked it on purpose to prod Mick into leaving.
That’s my conspiracy theory at least lol
Timing is right for the Hanser purchase, leading up to it, during, and immediately after were pretty rough/transitional periods for BCR, including AR and the Custom Shop.
It was bad enough that bad checks, poor bookkeeping, and missing shipments were very common.
