So did they say something about no more bolt on guitars? Does this mean no Gunslingers?
Someone willingly installed a Washburn Wonderbar onto their guitar?
HAHAHAHHAHAHAHA. That made me chuckle a little too hard.
I think what they mean is just everything being an import will be neck thru. I am sure they will be coming out with the gunslingers as a bolt on because I remember reading a comment of someone asking about the gunslingers coming back and they replied yes, so I would think they'd carry on the tradition of having that model be bolt on.
You know, investors don't have to fork the capital in physical cash. Most of them would take a loan and leverage it through BC rich revenues.
For all of you interested in the new models, seems red blanket guitars has a few of em on hand, including the 50th anniversary models and..... the ironbird.
That Ironbird is the Custom Shop they did recently. Still waiting on the pleb version .
I need some guitars in a 25.5" scale length. LP style lengths aren't gonna do it for me.
It's like Kahler. Only a select few people on Earth can make them function properly. And those people are warlocks whose sacrificed axes were deemed worthy by the tremolo gods.
At least, that's about the only explanation I have for Arjen Lucassen and Dave Sharman.
While hilarious, that post is false! Kahler’s are pretty easy to setup.
Some nice pics of the 8-string with the Floyd:
If I had to guess, that is NOT a 25.5" scale as feared. It does not look as long as the 28" scale of the Schecter C8FR, but it's hard to judge from just pictures. Not sure why it's taking so long to release basic specs. I suppose if I was actually at risk of buying it, I could just call them and ask them to measure.
You thinking 26.5"?
I hope it isnt smaller, that would be fuckin retarded
The purfling on the 8-string fretboard makes them look even wider than they normally would.
I kind of assume it's 27", but I easily could be wrong. I agree that anything shorter than 26.5" would be a terrible fail. It would be so bad that it's hard to imagine, really, but hey, it's BC Rich.
Magnetic truss rod cover is kind of nice. Although...I do think head-stock truss rod adjustment is a bit "old school" for something that's suppose to be so "cutting edge" as this new model is supposed to be.
Yeah i agree. But i honestly could care less about that. It seems most of the models right now that are 6s are 24 5/8 scale length which fuckin sucks. I want the 25 1/2 for the warlocks and Vs! That black V looks dope but the scale length is an immediate turn off.
If it is less than that i would be disappointed tbh. I know some brands have 25.5" 7s, but from what i have heard as far as 7 strings go, 26.5" is a happy medium. any longer and the high e is a little slinky. Any shorter and then you have issues with the low e.
I will be buying my first 7 next year around march and I have my eyes on a Schecter SLS Elite c1 fr7. It is either that or a 7 from BCR that has an appropiate scale length
The link I posted to was an 8-string. There hasn't been a production 8-string at 25.5" scale for a really long time, and really for good reason. Low B does fine at 25.5" scale for most people, but man F# at 25.5" is tough to work with.
I've had 7-strings with scale lengths anywhere from 24.75" up to 27". They all work, at least for low B, just pick the string gauge that works for you. I usually use .010s on 25.5" and under and .009s on 27".
Their new 8 string guitar looks cool but it would have been awesome if they made a import version of that 8 string, U.S. custom shop, Beast guitar they made years ago. The one The Music Farm had. That thing was ridiculously huge!!!
If it helps, this is what an 8-string with a 25.5'' scale length looks like.
Pickup spacing is narrower than the BCR, so it's def either 26.5'' - 27'', which is understandable for a shredder-oriented 8-string.
