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

    Looks like an abalone parade.

    I'm guessing it was a case of "Fuck, we just need to launch this thing now and we can add the full range later"

    I have to say, that hardtail legacy Mockingbird is sweet. If I had a reason to buy another guitar, one of those would be high on the list.

    That blue shredzilla is really doing it for me. I also am liking the warlocks quite a bit!

    On mobile you have to click the three lines in the upper right hand corner but on desktop there’s just stuff to click towards the top

    Damn, just trying to see how much they will charge for the Shredzilla 6 with the Evertune. Besides the Abolone, it's damn near perfect.

    I would buy an extreme shredzilla but no FLOYD??? WTH.

    The prophecy series is promising, but the color choices are gross and the maple boards accentuate the abalone even more along with the color

    Pardon my French, but where the fuck is the 8 with Floyd? Did they succumb to the generic, “no one will buy one” bug?

    Yeah I've got nothing but a sign up page as well. I was afraid of no Ironbirds after seeing the preview on their instagram page, but optimistic that they'll be added later.

    Same. They even created catagories that are empty or only have 1 instrument in it, if you look at the basses.

    Maybe they are going to add more soon? Maybe it isnt the full lineup just yet?

    I hope so because i want a shredzilla with a floyd or an ironbird with a floyd or a stealth with a floyd. 25.5 inch scale length and no bullshit

    I thought someone with inside info earlier in this thread confirmed that while early ones were built with 25.5, that it would be shorter scale, except for 8 strings, etc.

    Honestly I would buy one if it didn't have the abalone. I'm not entirely opposed to it, it looks good for some of the Schecter stuff but it looks so cheesy with the pointy shapes.

    I do like the look of the Stealth, however. Even the splalted maple one looks kinda cool to me. Wish the inlays were the diamonds like on the "Chuck" Stealth.

    Honestly, judging on people's requests online, it seems like they're missing huge opportunity not putting out several Stealth and Ironbird models.

    Just because they make them doesn’t mean that enough people will buy them to make them viable in the numbers they’d have to order.

    Not gonna lie, that double-neck is looking mighty tempting depending on the price.
