Re: Bernie Rico Guitars.

I have always liked the look of the quality of craftsmanship on the Bernie Rico models. The actual guitars themselves though, are all a bit too pointy for me. Dont get me wrong, everyone needs a pointy guitar in their arsenal. But some of the Bernie Rico models are insane!!

Re: Bernie Rico Guitars.

I had a Mason Bernard guitar which was made by Bernie Rico (at a time between his BC Rich involvement). It had the best neck- just amazing. However, I got it for $89, so the value to performance ratio was high. I do think that many BC Rich USA pieces are overpriced, and that may be the hit on these as well.

Yeah they are pricey. They look very well made and I bet they play great and sound good, but they look like they belong to the goth crowd. I would only buy one if I was going to play Mick Mars in a Motley Crue "Shout at the Devil" era cover band.

Ive heard of them. Sight unseen i would bet they feel like the high end bc riches so they are probably an awesome buy. They could attain a high level of value at some point as well. Arent they in the boutique guitar price range?

I played one of the early ones and thought it was great. Just like a custom shop BC rich or better.
