Gentlemen... BEHOLD! My custom built guitar!






My BC Rich USA Custom Shop Stealth 7 String.

Don't get too excited, these are just the dealer's pics, I've not actually got it in my hands just yet, but I couldn't resists showing everyone!

I cannot wait for it!

Congrats! It reminds me of a Jackson Warrior body shape. What pickups do you have in there, and what's she made of?

Yeah, the Jackson Warrior is a rip-off of the BC Rich Stealth.

The pickups are DiMarzio Evolution and Air Norton. She's got neck-through maple, with a mahogany body and ebony fretboard. Which should sound quite awesome, no doubt.

Re: Gentlemen... BEHOLD! My custom built guitar!

maybe its the pic quality, but for a USA custom, it looks kind of ...... not good. i know its a unique shape, but the quality doesn't seem to be there. like i said, probably just the flash from the camera. more pics please

Ahh, I just love the less extreme shapes of BC Riches.

If it were me (and had a lot of money) I would get a Supreme.

But it's your guitar, so play it hard.

Re: Gentlemen... BEHOLD! My custom built guitar!

Yeah, it's definetly styled after Chuck Schuldiner's guitar, but it has a lot more of my own person touches, such as 2 humbuckers, 7 strings, no inlays and the like being the differences.

As for getting something like a Supreme, not really much point as this baby was built to my own specs, and I like to keep things simple, so nothing too flashy, like inlays. I think nothing looks classier than a nice ebony fretboard with no inlays. There's also no crazy active electronic setup or anything, just a very simple 1 vol, 1 tone and a 3 way toggle. Very simple indeed, and it's just what I need.
