Red blanket had one proto.
Just gotta wait for the full release
But why u mad bro?
I’m not? I want to see these get purchased. Of all the things I have personally mentioned on SSO or seen mentioned this one has seemed to me to be high on the “vocal minority” scale. So #1 I just want reviews on more BCR’s quality control and #2 I want to see someone drop money on such a unique production model.
I'm not sure I've seen someone say they'd buy any 8-string with a Floyd. Schecter and Agile each have made them. There are a few people (myself included) that would like more options because the Schecters and Agiles have certain specs (28" scale and odd locking nut, respectively) that don't appeal to everyone.
The BC Rich specs actually are pretty good for me. Problem in my case is that it took too long. I've ordered two custom Schecters, had an RG852 routed for a Floyd, and had another custom 8 built with a Floyd Rose. Had I not blown all that money, the BC Rich would be headed my way.
So in other words...you’re not going to buy one?
I've definitely seen a couple users say they'd buy any floyd 8. With that said, I still want to know how it feels on an 8. I'm sure it's great for some slight tremolo but I'm guessing you can't really dive bomb or go too far on it, right?
My mistake. I will buy one if they are indeed 26.5/27" scale. Would also like to see the stripped down models they keep mentioning, although I do not mind the abalone at all. Question is, when will they be available and where? The high res photos look pretty much like schecter South Korean quality which is pretty good, generally.
You can go just as nuts as you can on any other guitar, it's just a little harder to do because of the extra tension. Dives are super awesome on low F# and you can do those sweet dime squeels all day long if you like... And yes they flutter too. As a matter of fact, my schecter hellraiser C8 FR stays dead nuts in tune no matter what I do with it, even moreso than my rg7620 with the lo pro edge trem. There are zero downsides, if you are someone who likes trems.
Very unlikely. Had it come out 12-18 months ago, it'd be very different. When a customized RG852 is essentially my "beater" guitar, I just don't know when I'd play the Shredzilla.
But I think it's awesome they are making it and I hope it sells well enough to encourage others to follow suit.
But to the extent that anyone is calling me out for not putting my money where my mouth is for not buying the Shredzilla, I feel like I've already done that. That's all.
I said I'd buy the first Ibby 8 with a trem, so I'm partially there I guess depending on the specs and price and if they are available still when I'm able to buy one, I'll snatch a BCR.
Hoping I can.
I go nuts with the Floyd and it stays in tune perfect.
Only caveat is that I snap high strings like crazy with these longer-scale guitars, so if the Floyd is floating it's a real pain. But I seem to be the only guy around here with the excessive string-break problem.
Two things: looks like I’m gonna need to investigate a type C gigbag....
Honestly, as long as nothing the “new BCR” puts out resembles THIS thing, I think we’re in the clear...
Only 16 days left, stay strong fellas.
That fucking werid, man...
Kind of reminds of of some thing like:
Yeah, I’m one of the guys that will pretty much buy any 8 string with a Floyd. I have the Agile version. And I have a couple of Kahler 8s. And I have a Kiesel Hipshot 8. And I’ll prolly get the BC Rich 8 if it’s the rumored 26.5” scale or longer. But they’re not in stores yet. I emailed (reverbed?) the Music Farm, and they hoped they’d be in last week. But they still don’t have them. @trem licking, @cardinal, and I are the most vocal about 8s with trems, but I find it difficult to believe that no one else would buy them. So many 7s have Floyds, and hardtail 8s are a dime a dozen these days, so I’m frankly surprised we don’t see Floyd 8s.
Dunno if posted already.
"Shredzilla". Abalone is back, coupled with the superstrat trend of the year: long, loooooooooooooooong horns. You're warned Solar guitars.
It's not my favorite looking guitar but it looks good enough to rock. I appreciate the black-burst edges on the 8 so that it doesn't look exactly like a Hellraiser.
Bc Rich on Instagram showing off a short horn Mockingbird with Joe Perry. Would be pretty cool to see a new short horn. One of my dream guitars waaaaay back when.
