The return of the age of shred.

For guitars of the straight waisted variety (or reverse offset).

Bring back the U.S. made B.C. Richs. I've wanted a dual P Mockingbird bass forever.
I was checking one out a few years back. It was hot shit, but spendy.

I've wanted a neck thru mockingbird guitar with cloud inlays for ages. I really like those. People shit on BC Rich, but they have their charm, especially the real early ones.

The vintage B.C. Richs are super expensive, there's no way I could ever justify getting one. But those old Mockingbird and Eagle basses are so f'ing nice. I was just looking around and assumed they were U.S. but looks like some of the output may have been Japan too.

I think Donald Trump has something to do with all of this.

"Guitar-based music is on the way out. Guitars aren't selling as well, etc. ."

From the Trump playbook, what you're supposed to do is 'double-down' and go right against the grain, hence the return of the shred. I suggest you all invest in environment-destroying Aqua-net hairspray stock.

Make Guitars Shred Again.

Makes sense, 80's nostalgia is all the rage everywhere from music to economic and environmental policy.

I nearly bought one of the (non-US/recent) Mockingbird neck-through things; newer BC Riches actually come with a *particularly* great setup. Wound up with my Soloist instead (price worked better.) But... The best choice was a Koa Musicman Petrucci Sterling I found a week later.
King Buzzo: I love when people come up to me and say “Your guitar sound was better on Stoner Witch, when you used a Les Paul. “...I used a Fender Mustang reissue on that, dumbass!

I'd be pretty happy to have one of these Fernandes/Burny jobs, too. It's totally an absurd and tasteless guitar, but I love it.
