This looks like a mashup of a Prince Cloud and Bill Gruggett's Halmark Stradette.
27", Floyd Rose, 8 strings, and a shitload of abalone to make it wonderfully gaudy for all the haters.
Taking pics now.
so they changed the spec from 26.5" to 27"? or this is a different model? they really are changing things up with the quickness on these... i can get down with this change though, 27" is perfect for 8 string + floyd.
IIRC they said from the beginning the 26.5'' was a prototype.
Right on. The first 8 string w Floyd was 25.5" I thought, then I saw 26.5" on the spalt one... Couple different prototypes I guess
I think you're right actually. The first proto was 25.5'' and then they said 26.5''. My bad.
Well there must have been multiple protos being that there's been 25.5, 26.5 and now 27. Unless it's a different model? These have sorta been all over the map scale wise
Checking the spec sheet and it does still say 26.5''.
Damon67's post up above shows him measuring 27" scale on whatever model that is
@Damon67 lemme see those pics! You’re killing me, man! Did you get a bunch of different models in? I’m curious what all the different options/variations on these are.
@Holloway yeah... 42 guitar arrived yesterday. 31 more in a week. Just finished taking pics, now editing 500+ photos, then get everything online.
And flying to Oakland in the AM to catch one more game at the Coliseum before they head to Vegas. I'm, shooting for Monday evening.
Most models and options are listed on the site already though.
I live like an hour from Oakland. Maybe I’ll meet you there, and you can adopt me, and I’ll be your live in adult son who takes care of your BC Rich collection. We’ll make it a TV show called “BC and Andy” and have a really good laugh track.
Seriously, though - multiple 8 string trems in that batch?
just 2... the bulk of them arrive next week. I think most stuff is listed on the site. I'll have inventory updated tonight
I like the show idea.
Available in Black Cherry and Spalted Maple with Floyd. Best I can do for now. More Monday
Very cool. Thank you, good sir! These are coming out better than I expected - esp with the 27” scale length.
BC Rich’s main appeal has been the pointy body shapes. I have no idea why anyone would buy a Shredzilla when other companies like Ibanez and Schecter have been making better built superstrats for decades.
unless you really like abalone I guess
This is exactly what I posted a few pages ago. They have the Shredzilla in an already saturated market with lots of brands while they still have a big name in the pointy guitar market. And they could become a big player in that market.
BCR has been building strats and superstrats for decades.
BC Rich has been about ridiculous levels of bling on guitars since like forever... the pointy shapes were their response to the confusing 80s
True, but when I look for a superstrat, BC Rich isn't the first brand to go to. I'm not saying they should stop making superstrats. It just seems like they're shifting the brand to less extreme shapes and more mainstream.
