  1. Hello bass community. Is it only me or do any of you find BC Rich basses hideously and god-awfully UGLY??? I see a lot of them on Craigs and I just wonder, in my spare time, who the hell buys them?? BTW, I think Danelectros run a close second in ugliness. Any other contributions to this list would be greatly appreciated. Please, my apologies and no offense to those who already own them.

    ps. I feel you could actually injure yourself seriously with the BC if it falls on you.
  2. See the rules. No "ugly bass threads".

  5. This is another useless thread.

    They are "dated". Very 80s metal. If you're in a Kiss tribute band, a BC rich and a prosthetic tongue will be absolutely a necessity.

    The US & Japanese BC Rich have a great reputation.

    Yet, they look awkward and would consider one only if I was in a hair metal cover band. Tried to be in one but the band acted very rudely: after sending me the song list for the audition (about 10, 5 I knew already but still 5 new to learn), radio silence. No email, no call back. Unbelievable.

    Some people, including and especially me, like them.

    The US-made instruments from mid-80's and prior go for big dollars. There's a reason for that. They're extremely well made and they sound and play great.
