From what I've read/seen, only choices are yellow and red....

I agree that lightning graphic would be fricken awesome! Maybe if these catch on, they'll expand the line...

Oh yeah, They're MIKs.. But with the present specs at the price point they are at it's a no brainer.. Where else ya gonna get an OFR equipped maple fretboard instrument for under $600? With Dimarzios stock to boot..

Re: BC RICH Retro Gunslinger

I'd love to buiy my old one back that I had to sell last year.
If one of you guys has it, hit me up, but I'm combing the net for a US made 'slinger.

these new ones I'm pretty sure are offshore models.
If they are set up well i might look into one of them....

Re: BC RICH Retro Gunslinger

Where is it made? None of the literature states place of manufacture. Love that guitar!

Compares to my Assassin? Ha ha.

I agree with the neck scenario. An entirely different pup from an Ibanez. I tend to think mine as close to an old Kramer.

BTW, did you ever remember what stock pup was in your old one? (Gimme411 from HC)

Re: BC RICH Retro Gunslinger

Sounds awesome, I'm liking it. So is the neck a similar slim profile to the Wizard necks?

Re: BC RICH Retro Gunslinger

sounds sweet! only thing holding me back from getting one is I could get a 550 for about the same price and that has 24 frets. However if I got one of these I'd prolly tune to E Flat too. So maybe instead of just getting an Rg550 for college, i'll also get a gunslinger for E flat haha. But that is in a year so maybe the price will go down on both

Re: BC RICH Retro Gunslinger

Man!!! There isn't much NOT to like about these!!!

Two things, I rolled my fretboard immediately.. And the paint job while looking very nice is thin, particularly around the control routs.. This one will looked reliced before long without trying I'm sure..This doesn't bother me in the least, I bought this for the Frame.. I wanted a BC Rich 22 fret, OFR equipped, Maple fretboard, 2 HB ****ING BEAST!!!

And THAT'S what this is.. The upper fretboard access is almost as good as my N4.. The deep cutaway is sweet!! Nice flat radius fretboard too...The pickups are great.. The neck twinblade is smoooooth

It came with 4 trem springs.. I took one off and dropped it to Eb.. The neck and fretboard feel unfinished.. I'm going to remove the neck and tung oil mine.. In the last 10 days, I've received a Carvin CS6(terrible,sent back) an American Standard Strat from MF(neck issues,sent back) a 2002 American Standard Strat on trade (More on it later) and this one..

This is the one that gives me the perpetual ****eatin grin on my face..
