well, anything from korea is basically shit, just look at the tone woods and build quality for instance. ibanez prestige's aren't custom made either though.

But I do have a custom made ibanez here at home, it's a bass guitar, factory custom!

In relation to price, I think BC Rich is just around the same level as any of the well known guitar brands, but they do have freaky designs so thats what get them a bunch of fans across the world!

I agree about the Les Paul neck's feeling slow, they are to fat and bulky. I get in so many arguments with other guitarists who swear Les Pauls and Strat's are the only true way to go. They are both shaped with technology from 50 years ago! I think Jackson Custom's are the way! So smooth, like butter!

Yes, they take a little getting use to. Like I said before, I think the only good quality is the shapes, so fucking metal. Alot of people have complained about the beast and it's shape being hard to play. I actually like it, there should be a warning label on it "Danger!-only for the extreme".

What I meant was B.C. Rich's are pretty crappy guitars but if you want the shapes you must learn to sacrifice a bit of over all skill on your guitar for it. Hence: it takes a little getting use to.

I would play an Ironbird, or a warlock, but the beast is just too stupid looking.

first, i liked the beast most
but it's harder to play
and you need an airfield to land it

the warlock doesn't need that much space
one of the reasons, that i finally bought it
and not another one

a matter of personal preference and a matter of knowing good guitars/materials/tone.

Germany has some great guitar shops, like musik productiv and musicstore koeln!

Exactly! - how the fuck is music technology supposed to progress when people refuse to play anything but 40 year old fenders and gibsons and marshall amps from the 80s?

I say adopt the work ethics of the past and embrace visions of the future when making musical instruments.
