Very nice! Only issue is the black headstock. Would look even better with a colour matched, or maybe even a natural finish seeing as it has a maple board.

Re: BC RICH Retro Gunslinger

nice, the way the shadows hit it, it looks like it has scalloped frets which makes me think that would be awesome to have scalloped frets on that. it just looks like it could take it hahaha

I was actually thinking of getting one of these as a random guitar to have around, maybe tuned to Eflat since my only guitar tuned down is my Fender and its not exactly shred tastic, more blues hah

Re: BC RICH Retro Gunslinger

Nice gunslinger II. You can`t have these headstocks matching. The classic BC thing is to always have a black headstock, or on older guitars, a brown stained veneer top

nice catch

Re: BC RICH Retro Gunslinger

I like those. Prolly the only BC Rich I would consider buying.(well, maybe a mockingbird).

Too bad they didn't issue more colors or some "old school" 80s graphics!

Re: BC RICH Retro Gunslinger

This is the first BC Rich I've ever liked. Their styling has always been too far out there for me. This design, kinda like an RG, is aggressive but not . . . em . . "weird?" "extreme?" Not sure how to put it, but y'all know what I mean.

Re: BC RICH Retro Gunslinger

Congrats, that looks (and hopefully plays) sweet! I thought it was scalloped at first also, weird. I was going to ask if they offer these with the "lightning" graphic, which I always dug, but I'm guessing by jm5150's post that they don't.

Re: BC RICH Retro Gunslinger

Got mine from Funkymunky music.com

Dealt with Scot....$599

This fretboard is FLAT...

I carried a BC Rich for a while as a stage guitar back in the day.. This is like stepping into a "way back" machine


I've got to sticker the bejeezus out of this
