Pulled the trigger on my first multi-scale!

Postby SEANZILLA » Tue Jul 30, 2019 11:48 am

Couldn't resist anymore:

VM49K
Lefty
Swamp ash body/headstock
Roasted maple neck
Antique ash finish w/trans black in raw tone
Royal ebony fretboard
Gold hardware/frets/logo
Singles
straplocks
metal knobs w/abalone (may buy the wooden knobs later)
abalone offset dots
ebony truss cover

This should look badass :mrgreen:

I had to do a double-take on your username. I've been following BC Rich on instagram lately, and they have a new model called "Shredzilla". :lol:

That Vanquish sounds awesome. Trans black on AAT raw tone, with a roasted neck, royal ebony FB and gold hardware sounds like a killer-looking combination.

Well, I've managed to stay sober. Somehow. I was told over the phone "10-12 weeks, but this one might be done a little sooner." Then I see a Q&A with Jeff and he said build times are currently 8-10 weeks. THEN...I see a post saying raw tone models can be done in as little as 5-8 weeks.

I've got 6 weeks into it. So, somewhere between tomorrow and 6 more weeks. I have no idea.
