Default NGD..Snakeskin BC Rich Assassin...US Custom Shop

Just got this one for a straight across trade for my Kramer Sustainer. I guess I'm just not a super Kramer fan. It was a well made guitar, but it really didn't do it for me. In addition to that, I felt the sustainer unit was a little lackluster. IMHO, the one I had in the Jackson DK2S was far superior.

Now I've never been a big BC Rich fan either, but this thing here is outrageous. This one is from the California custom shop. As far as I can tell it's from the late 80's or early 90's. The neck is to die for.......24 frets, nice raw feel to the back of it...just great. The pups are killer too.....lotsa output and grind from the bridge, and a really cool Tele/Strat thing from the neck.

This one came to me disassembled, and I spent awhile yesterday assembling and setting it up. I still don't have it dialed in perfectly, but it's close. The only bummer in this deal is, the dude forgot to send me the strap buttons, I'll replace them soon though.

Now on to the porn.........................

These were apparently listed at $1,400 new........this one's in new condition too. I only had $500 in the Kramer, so it's a really good deal from my perspective. It also works out for the guy who got the Kramer, as he's the same guy who bought Luke's, and he wanted mine as a backup stage guitar to that one.


One thing about this one is it's making me really interested in the Gunslinger re-issues.
