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

    What I would do for a Beastmaster, had it not been litigated into oblivion.

    It's the extreme metal endorsees and players that first turned me on to the brand. The suffocation guys, Erik Rutan, Chuck, Trey, Eric Hersemann, and more recently the Blood Incantation and Vitriol guys. The fact that KK was even an endorsee had completely slipped my mind until recently. That said, I like the KK "noise" solos, but then I love trem wankery :lol:

    He was used in some official BCR marketing materials, and was listed by them as an endorser.

    That was around the time BCR was circling the drain again, so it's likely he just wanted guitars, which Moser could provide.

    While everyone may hate on Five Finger Death Punch are we really acting like they haven't been playing BC Rich for forever now? This isn't news? I remember seeing plenty of NGDs for that natural Zoltan sig when it first came out and that was awhile ago.

    Kael had a Spector signature model since 2013. Interesting to see him move on from there considering how much attention they gave him and the quality of workmanship.

    Zoltan did some endorsement hopping for awhile. He ditched BCR, then went with Dean, then Diamond/DBZ, and looks like he's back with BCR.

    I'll be honest, even though Kael's Spectors are probably better instruments, holy shit they looked ugly.

    EDIT: I'm also guessing the guitars Zoltan are using are guitars he used before he moved onto Dean.

    For years it was just a REX with no inlays, and murdered out.

    The newer design was all Kael, at least that's what both sides said when it was released. Still not too bad though.

    I don't really count the stupid brass knuckle bridge plate, as they were easily removed.

    JHS' new website launches June! No, Summer! No, End of Summer! No... scratch that. JHS' new website lauches SOMETIME!

    All joking aside, this is why it's a great idea (hint hint, nudge nudge, JHS) why you don't shit can your old website while working on your new one. You keep the old one up UNTIL the new one is finished. I thought businesses had learned this shit in, what, at least by 2002?

    Here is to hoping BC Rich has a functioning, bug free (or mostly, anyways) website as planned on Thursday.

    I don't pay a lot of attention to Five Guys One Cup, but I was under the impression their guitarist was with Diamond.

    As long as there is no ecommerce module, doing a decent site is piss easy nowadays. My grandma could do it.

    Yeah like I said, he endorsement hopped for a bit. I'm hoping if they bring back his sig model, it's the old one he used to have.

    In a recent post, people asked, and the BC Rich account responded.

    So we can assume that Music Farm and Red Blanket are on instructions to not talk about them until Thursday?

    Yeah, I asked him a little earlier, and he said he’s hoping the new ones will arrive later this week.
