Yess the Iron Birds look so good (as do mocking birds) but I have never really like the 'feel' of BC's

germX Bought the Ironbird from the body art series. Itís really a cheap + good guitar. Yeah I had second thoughts about the body design but after trying it, I feel that the absence of a strat-like upper bout makes me play differently.

Trey Azagthoth mentioned in an interview how he can always rest his picking arm elbow on the bodyís V like upper extension to give leverage when picking- I could finally relate to what heís talking about.

kp69 The import bc rich stuff is garbage but their USA Custom shop stuff is incredible. I have an Assassin the smokes. Blows away every soloist I've owned or picked up.

Met and partied w/ KK too, and he was actually very cool, and down to earth.

pawel The USA mockingbird models are apparently great guitars, I never played one though. I'm not a big fan of KK, but his signature models look really cool as far as over the top metal guitars go (and the real thing is more like $3000, lol)

It's not sweet Just messing with you, couldn't resist

And actually only one of the guys from Slipknot plays BC Rich (signature model), the other guy used to play everything from Jackson to Ibanez, but now plays PRS.

Petie I met KK at a party once (media launch for a a Machine Head album) and he was a bit arrogant. The MH guys were really humble and cool. I was thrilled to meet Kerry, until I started to talk with the guy, and all he could do was chastise me for never having seen a Slayer gig before (they were playing with MH the next night). Well excuuuuuuuuuuse mmmeeeeee! *LOL* Slayer never came to my little faraway home town.

Some BC Rich guitars are amazing. I love them for Mustaine-style rhythm work, but I need a bit more fretboard radius for leads. They feel very solid.

guitarkatana I'm not a big Kerry King fan myself, but eh, whatever. His guitar at least looks cool.

Here's Chuck Schuldiner. Look at that guitar and tell me that's not sweet.

sanitarium Maybe I was a bit unfair, I know they do make differant models. I was mainy refering to those Warlock guitars (I think that's what there called).
12-05-2003 05:00 AM
mulletman80 I thought that slipknot plays Jacksons...I was just curious about BC Rich. I do agree that they look chessy. I dont think Id buy one just was wondering whats up with them..guess I know now haha
12-05-2003 12:22 AM
sniperfrommars1 The us models are superior in tone and playability to jackson guitars, and feel quit the same to me. the low end stuff is crap, but so is low end ibanez stuff to me. Its to each his own I guess. Bc rich does make strat style guitars, they dont make guitars for everybody though you know?

sanitarium I don't really like em at all, I think the head stock looks scabby and they are painfull to play sitting down. They just look cheesey. Little metal wanna be kid: "oh that looks spikey and the guys from Slipknot play them them so i'm gonna get one, look i'll look so metal. Oh and there so cheap it won't take long to save my money for one".

You could do worse, they don't sound that bad and arn't that badly built. I just think they look crap, oh and you'll want to get new pickups because the ones they come with sound really bad. Just my opinion anyway.
