So I've been Givin the oppertunity to get a bc rich platinum bass for half price(brand new but fell off the shelf ,minor dents on top, purely cosmetic) I was wondering what was thought of them? It would be a secondary bass for me, my first being a spector spectorcore fretless(that I love). I just had a few questions, is there binding on the neck? If I got this I think it may turn into a project bass. I've played with bronze series basses(briefly) and was unimpressed with the tone , Did the platinum vary much to them? qualitywise did the platinum seem much better than the bronze? If i get this I might consider leaving it as it is.My likely option though would be to defret it, strip the body of paint, give it an oil finish(in some sort of burst) and replace the pick ups. What are your guys thoughts? get a cheaper bronze or is it worth the difference in cash?Quality of neck and body... I prominantly play death metal and jazz.odd combination but thats life huh?
