Yes, very cheesy! BUT THEY MAKE A H/S GUITAR! That's a great thing. But yes, cheese. Oddly enough I still kinda like them.

I love the yellow one. Maple board, single humbucker, OFR and just a volume pot. If i didn't just spend a load of cash on my Caparison I would get one.

Re: B.C. Rich 2008 lineup

I just picked up a red NECK THRU assasin for under $500 on fleabay. People who don't know think it is the most expensive guitars I own when they see it. It was cheap I can let people touch it. don't have to worry if the kids puke on it and it plays well. I may be getting back into BC rich if they keep up the strat shaped models and quality...

Haha, actually, I completely agree. When I think "overrated," Fender comes to mind. I like neck thru's (preferably) with 24 frets, humbuckers, and floyds. I got over fender ages ago. We are on Jemsite, right? the site about the guitar(s) with 24 frets, humbuckers, and a floyd?

I think we've ALL seen much worse!

For me, they look like cool guitars, except they lack 2 frets i use... a lot! Guess I was in a bad mood the day I responded, but it is actually kind of amusing to see some of the responses. =)
