Now cloning is becoming rediculous...

    I like BC Rich basses, especially the older models. But they appeal to a niche market. If cloning them proves a worthwhile enterprise then what's next? A budget clone of the Gibson RD Artist? Guild B-302? A 34" scale, steel-strung version of the original Ashbory bass?

    Cloning is annoying, we were looking through the guitars in the school instrument store, we opened a case, looked in and saw a gourgeous looking black SG. Then I thought about the person who owned it and thought "no way do they have the money for a genuine SG". So I thought it would be an Epiphone, not a bad guitar. But no, it was some damn Korean clone make that I'd never heard of. With my guitarist who owns a Les Paul Studio there he was pretty annoyed at this abuse of the SG body.

    Anyway, the bass in the pic is horrible, nuff said :).

    'Pointy' and 'bass' just don't go together. I like my basses like I like my women; curvy and smooth.

    If the normal BC Richs' suck, then how could a cheaper clone be any better?

    That's so wack. The body is that godawful BC Rich pointy look (many good things came from the '80s, but pointy guitars are not among them!) but the headstock looks traditional. Identity crisis!

    EDIT: oops, that's apparently an authentic headstock (shoulda read all of the initial post in this thread!) I always just thought all BC Riches had pointy headstocks.

    My first bass was a Mako Warlock that, IMHO, was a really nice sounding bass for being a plywood body with serious neck dive. The best part of the bass were the passive P/J pups. It played really well aside from the forementioned neck dive. But I was also a 13 year old kid at the time and Motley Crue was in!

    I like the pointy goodness :spit:

    That one probably sucks but I'd love to have an American Mockingbird Supreme :D

  14. Not my style in the least, but what I really find retch-worthy is how UN-like the Warlock(I think that's the model they poorly copied)this thing actually is. Yeeuck.
     
  15. IMHO why would anyone play the warlock their heavey unbalanced, UGLY, and it feels like your playing a slab of plywood with the strings on it. but like I said IMHO.
