what about the floyes rose? i think it's okay, isn't it? i tried the floyes rose of an ibanez and you couldn't play because the strings became so weak...

and thank you ThongPick for writing a serious, not insulting but informing post

the only BC Rich shapes i like are the mockingbird and virgin. In fact, I like virgins so much that my custom Ran is virgin shaped. The other body shapes, well I think are a bit stupid.

yes virgin is also very beautiful
but mockingbird looks (in my opinion) very bad
and beast is cruelty to play

To quote BLS, rather loosely : "I'd rather have a shitty B.C. Rich stock pickup than an EMG HZ. At least the B.C. Rich pickups sound shitty ... in an original way!"

You played a cheap guitar with EMG HZ's in them. EMG HZ's are the inexpensive low-quality pickups that are put in inexpensive low quality guitars. HZ is to EMG as Duncan Designed is to Seymour Duncan ... only worse. Play a guitar with authentic active EMG's, and I promise your opinion of EMG's will change drastically.

And I'm willing to bet that when the strings became weak on the floyd rose you played, the pitch of all six strings inexplicably dropped as well ...

what kind of bcrich (what series) do you call your own?

and btw your second post was a post
the first was not

any new 500 dollar guitar sounds like shit, haha!

or well, 90% of them do.

BC Rich are pretty lame, unless you get the american made's, but still I don't consider them to be top knotch. I can't stand their neck profile but at least the sound on the high end models is allright.

haha, you probably don't know how to use it then :P the floyds on rg's are way superior. depending on which rg you play, a 300 bucks starter set is bound to be shit. But the edge trems are far superior then anything bc rich ever made on the trem deparment, the original RG edge trems are great, they're equals to OFR's if you as me. Many people who played them will agree with me.

I've played allmost everything BC Rich had to offer but was never that impressed, they're more about the looks then the tone and quality, though if you need that, thats what you should go for!

Also, KH202's aren't good guitars either, and comparing your guitar to a 300 bucks ibanez starter kit isn't a fair comparisson. I invite you to come over and play my '89 RG750 prestige which will make you cream your pants.

Indeed it does. I played one myself and I'm still pretty impressed with the high-end ibanez range. the low end seems to get worse and worse whilst the high-end's are still doing great.

I bought it off a friend, 400 bucks. it's pretty banged up (ok, it's 16 years old now,haha!) but it still plays like a dream. Must say that the quality of most factory made guitars went downhill.

that even goes for Gibsons, I played one yesterday on my own amp, a 99 les paul studio, it does sound really deep but the neck just seems sooooo slow
