    It is indeed a very interesting bass. . . if you plan to go hunting with it! :eyebrow:

    I don't think you would get past security at an airport carrying that bass in a gig bag. . .

    One of the better laughs I've had all day.
     
  11. That thing owns. I think the original 5th tuner probably broke and they couldnt find or were too lazy to get a black replacement. The paint job isn't bad. I would play something like that for a few shows. \m/

    I've kinda always had a soft spot for Ironbirds, I almost bought one back in the day (80's). I had found a really interesting one (in yellow!!! :meh: ) that had neck and strings COMPLETELY parallel (String spacing at bridge was exatly the same as at the Nut.) which felt kinda strange but kinda cool at the same time. IIRC it also had the tremelo.

    I can't say I've ever seen a lefty or a 5 string one tho.

    Actually, $1000 is a good price for a custom Rich lefty with the Kahler and Alembic pickups. If I were a left and had the cash and somehow developed a liking for those shapes. So far the only B.C. Rich shape I really don't thik "over does it" is the Eagle.
     
  14. I never understood the whole "pointy" thing. Just my opinion though.

    Pointy rocks. Unless you hate pointy. To each his own. Personally I always hated Ironbirds. Until I saw this one that I can't play. Never got the whole fretless 6 thing though. Maybe a pointy fretless six? Argh.
     
  16. A warlock fretless six! lol awesome
