hey look some ESP's in the background!
Anyways I don't like pule burl
“Aaagghhuughhh the abalone is too much! Why don’t they make guitars without it? WAh the abalone hurt mah butt.”
Lol no offense intended but I wanted to say it first.
the traditional ironbird-player isn't into flashy/cheesy stuff, so i really dunno who they are targeting with this...
The new and upcoming ironbird-players perhaps?
These guitars are rad looking... The abalone accentuates the shape in a cool way
I think you meant "dead" or "over it"
So chances are they have a point...
I'd take these new abalonerz over a plain Jane anyday. I mean I get peeps like a plain look but these are killer. I've never been a bc rich dude really, but these new ones are swaying me
I dont mind the abalone itself...what I mind it what the squared edge profile supercedes any chamfers and contours on the edges.
I guess FFDP arent running bc rich? Seems it’s Bill Xavier, whoever that is
/waits months for new Ironbird photos
/gets poplar burl and abalone
The President/CEO of a company is not exactly the default owner. They're the President/CEO.
Bill has been in the industry forever. He worked with Peavey in the late 90's and early 00's, worked for Kaman and Hanser, and was last a VP at Ovation.
The kind of industry vet you'd hire to run your newly purchased guitar business.
Pick the correct string set and you won't have any issues. All my 7 string trems are 2 or 3 springs at max, including one down to F standard. Generally end up having slightly lighter gauges on a trem than on a hardtail anyway.
I’m ok with it on the body, but it just looks too thick on the FB. I’ll prolly still get the Floyd 8, but I’d love it if the FB was bound, but didn’t had the purfling - abalone or anything else, for that matter.
Man, whoever said "traditional Ironbird players arent into flashy/cheesy stuff" gotta be kidding me. The Ironbird is pretty flashy and pointy in all direction. If the abalone binding is what makes you think it is "flashy/cheesy" then you got wrong priority.
it is, but they put some extra double cheese on it...
So... when will they add Monster energy inlays?
"Each USA Kerry King V Limited Edition 50 Pc guitar is priced at $8,666 and can be ordered from the Dean Guitars web site."
Fuuuck that. Are there really people who would buy them?
There are people who will buy two. Not joking.
All I want is one of these, but with a Floyd instead of a Kahler. No abalone. No shitty looking poplar burl (which will undoubtedly be in some kind of green/blue fade/burst, just like every company makes these days).
Either way, BC Rich already publicly commented that the Legacy line of Ironbirds won't have any binding. So I'll just keep my fingers cross that in another 6 months when the production photos of that line are ready it will look like one of the below Ironbirds.
