So, is BC Rich officially dead? Apparently not. But there's abalone. And it's owned by FFDP.

    Since this thread is 80% complaining, am I too late to say it's stupid that you can't buy any one of these guitars for under $1400?

    I'm sure with just a little bit of effort and teamwork we can get this to 100% complaining. Y the 5-string basses have to be 35" scale?

    Eh, it makes a certain amount of sense. Like Tesla or something similar: you release your flashy attention-grabbing (and higher profit) "sports car". Then, once you've got things rolling, you can start marching towards the higher-volume, lower-cost, lower-profit items.

    $8 billion worth of preorders. So, if it’s dumb but it works it ain’t dumb.

    I mean...it's fully-refundable, $100 name-on-a-list placeholders that would represent $8 billion worth in sales.

    I just wanted to point out if let’s say 5% is true that’s $400mm in gross sales. Which should at least cover R&D

    It's not even that big. It's shape makes it look more imposing, but it's within a few inches (smaller, in at least one dimension) of the Ford F-150.

    What I meant was, the 4-door size with the similar-sized bed. The Tesla's bed is actually a bit longer than Ford's in the same footprint. From a practicality standpoint, though, the tall angled side walls would inhibit hauling certain things that might hang over the side walls.

    It's a useless-looking brodozer

    WHY DO THEY NOT HAVE A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN THE OWNERS OF BCR (THE 5 KYLES) AND MONSTER? SEEMS OUTRAGEOUS.

    I WANT THE GUITARS COLOR TO BE THE EXACT SHADE OF GREEN AS MONSTER OR ELSE ITS NOT FOR A TRUE ALPHA MALE

    I think Monster might have a prior relationship with ESP


    The Kyles must be soooo jelly
