    Barely two pickups, five knobs, a miniswitch, and a blade switch.

    WTF do they all do? :lol:

    Looks can be deceiving.

    There are actually three pickups, neck/middle/bridge. The knobs are for volume, bass, mid, treble, and gain. The guitar has an active preamp, like many basses.

    The blade switch works much like a traditional 5-way on a three pickup guitar:

    1) neck
    2) neck & middle out of phase
    3) middle
    4) middle & bridge
    5) bridge

    The mini-switch is a coil tap.

    The same guitar in trans-blue is $4000 off the original price!

    What a steal at only $16,555!

    I dunno... I can understand if this isn't that funny or if some find it cool. Even I was a little intrigued by it for about 10 seconds. But now I just look at it with more of a "wtf?" feeling.

    So, I stumbled on a local ad of this abomination... Here's a better pic from a different site:

    [​IMG]

    And no, this is not a modified body shape, it was made like this on a factory... The pic I added in the post is also from a website that's all about hideous guitars, so I guess I'll leave a link to it as well.

    These were made in USSR. And many people sell them like a rare collector's guitars these days, when they are actually absolute shite.

    Looks like a quality piece.... but gloss black on the knobs and switch and make the abalone go away ( looks like abalone). Binding and finish look great. Idk... something about the weird cut of the lower body.

    The "weird cut" is there because originally it was a 10-string guitar:

    The shape's just become more than a little bit iconic and they've made 6 (and 7) string versions.

    Out of everything so far (and out of BC Rich's catalogue...) I'd say this is one of the LEAST funny/weird/terrible guitars in the thread :p

    Dude, you're in the wrong thread.

    The Bich, especially the Steve Smyth sig there, is badass.
