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

    It’s like when “Aladeen” switched positive and negative to “Aladeen” and ”Aladeen”.

    Even though there is not a snowball's chance in hell, I would like to see the I.T. series back. I loved the feeling of those necks and with a few mods you could end up with a great guitar. Prices were low too and I deeply regret not buying the prototype for these (400 dollars), it was a Jr. V with a single EMG pickup and lasered BC Rich ghost logo if I recall.

    I think Bill Xavier in his interview with TTK mentioned about doing something or looking into the IT series if I can recall.

    Fingers crossed then, even if its full abalone.
    Also on another note, if one were to buy a 10 string bridge like the ones used on the 10 string Bich, where could he do so? I do not see such a piece on Moser's site and googling it does not help.

    Yeah I got Kahler to do a limited run of the original brass quads, both 6 & 10 string. Can’t recommend them enough, a solid chunk of brass is always a good upgrade. Neal has them and Kahler sell them on their site.

    Thanks, I do not know why I missed those pages.

    Just passed by BC rich's CS page and they still have Kerry King front and centre... Slow update guy or is it true that there are parallel shops being run and some may close?

    The Chuck reissue was one of the first things they talked about releasing. If anthing they BETTER release it because they've been teasing it pretty constantly

    Not going to NAMM the year you are relaunching seems like a shrewd business move tbh.

    It's smart.

    NAMM is fading in relevance. Social media can get you much further and it's a fraction of the cost.

    Bill said that he rather spend the money associated with namm like a booth and a getting the stuff out there etc. On marketing is what he told me.
