That's a Fender?!?!?!?!?

If we're gonna talk about pointy guitars gotta give a shout out to Neal Moser, the guy behind all of BC Rich's best stuff. He's still building under his own name these days.

And that's exactly the reaction we get every time it hits the stage. I've only ever seen one in person, the one that we scooped up at a local guitar shop for I think ~$700 maybe 4 years ago. I'm not sure how many of them exist out there but it was only in circulation for a single year, '85. A quick search only revealed 1 on eBay and it's currently selling for $1,400. It doesn't really feel or sound like a Fender Strat or Telecaster, it's an entirely different beast. Very lightweight and very comfortable in the hands. It has this strange Fender exclusive floating bridge called a two-pivot vibrato that works surprisingly well for being a string-thru body style. Very interesting guitar, quite rare, and plays / sounds very well. I still personally prefer it over Gibson Les Pauls, Strats, our Jackson Randy Rhoads Signature V, our Dean Razorback, and all of the BC Rich guitars I've ever played. It may not match up in quality to legendary Gibson / Fender models but it makes up for it in personality.

Impossible to choose a favorite, but this guitar is definitely on my bucket list of guitars to own before I die...

This thread has got me all worked up now, itching to buy a new guitar for the first time in over 5 years... Dangerously expensive thoughts racing through my mind. I think I'm going to start seeking out a woodgrain Telecaster... Anybody play a Telecaster? It's one of the few legendary models I've never tried.

My friend showed me this in a catalog the other day.

Forgot the name, but I want/need this:

Looks like one of the Kerry King signature BC Rich Warlocks. My first real guitar was a Warlock, fun guitars.

The "KKW" on the truss rod cover would back you up on this.

Can we post bass guitars here?
I got to play an bass from an obscure russian brand from the seventies, can't remember the name.
I should contact the guy who let me play it so I can find one. Was really ****ing awesome (except for an issue with one of the higher frets, which I feel like could be easily remedied)

I imagine bass guitars would, but why don't you start your own bass thread, I could add one or two.

Anyways my favourite guitar?
