Just like a true Rico.
I...I cant tell if you're being serious. I see a high post count, so i assume trolling (and also because I have a mental block against pairing personalities/comments/life details with online usernames), but...OK, I'll bite, just in case of newbies reading. Ha!
Trem cover plates are rarely centered, unless they are too big. The floyd route is asymetrical.
For example, here's an Ibanez Prestige (yes, I know it's an edge zero, and not a floyd):
It's warm and well humidified. What exactly is it you'd like to know? Listed 2nd right after Musician's Friend on BC Rich's dealer page... really we should be #1
How DOES a dealer that only sells Ovation and BC Rich live, anyway?
Considering that BC Rich is like 3 weeks old born-again....
Were you able to get any shots of the spalted 8 Floyd?
It’s flabbergasting. It really is.
We don't sell picks and straps and band instruments for little Joey. Most stuff we stock you can't find in stores. We're approached all the time... ESP, Takamine, Diamond, Jackson, Gretsch, etc.. but just not interested. It's a passion thing, never got into it for the money. I deal with brands that I know, love, and have played for decades.
RBG is the #1 indy dealer on the planet for both of those brands. BCR started producing their Custom Shop 50th Anniversary guitars in January. We've moved more than 50 units for them so far this year. With Ovation, we do nearly as much as the big box guys... literally hundreds of thousands in revenue with that brand.
As for Peavey which you din't mention... as much as I love that brand, it's been a struggle. I don't see them going anywhere but deeper into the pit with Courtland running that company... and I hope they see me say this. That said, if they can turn things around (probably won't happen under current leadership) and start producing USA stuff again, we'll be there to support.
Is there an interesting back story on the name? I've wondered where the "blanket" part comes from.
Them shredzillas really do look nice. 1,500$ nice? Eh knock off 500 and we’ll talk. Keep yer abalone! Plain ol white binding on the neck is fine, but I typically don’t care for the blinged out look.
Lack of imagination? Other people gave me the name. If you google my username you'll see I've been in guitar forums for a spell, posting pictures of my guitars on a red blanket. People started calling them the 'Red Blanket' pictures. When Ovation asked me to be a dealer, it was the only name I could come up with that didn't seem silly and contrived.
Ah, crap I’m an idiot - I never thought about those photos. But it’s a good name - especially with an organic back story like that.
Now back on topic - show me pics of the Spalt 8 Floyd on the red blanket, lol
Maybe i should hit up BC Rich for a sponsorship. That black Ironbird is calling my name.
I'm not sure if it's year and years of LTD Deluxes or Schecter Hellraisers desensitizing me to abalone
But those are hot.
This means that Erik Rutan will be able to buy new BC Rich Ironbirds without having to constantly search the used market. That thought popped in my head and it legit made me happy
abalone on black is ok. on green.....not that much.
but glad to see the ironbird back..in black
I hope that they won't put a thick layer of gloss finish on the neck and keep it natural with a satin finish. And yeah, the abalone isn't too bad on those black, if the specs are more to my taste than the future Legacy model, might actually get one of them abalone binded black Ironbird
I don’t mind the abalone on the black or white, but it’s wayyyyyy off on the green!
