The bass Abbath's playing. What is it and where do I get it?

eBay.

A lot of money and effort requires for a p.o.s.

Kinda wanted it black like Abbath's. Any other places for a better price, or is it that rare?

Would it be possible to get an ironbird guitar body and put a bass bridge, neck and pickups on it?

No, and it would probably be easier and cheaper just to custom build one yourself.

Which would not be easy or cheap at all.

I played one in a store several years ago. Its big, ugly, uncomfortable, and average at best. Would not recommend.

If you play it sitting down, yeah, but Abbath doesn't seem to have a problem.

Definitely make your own body and fit an allparts or Mighty Mite neck. You can make it much better than any BC Rich.

I have to agree, that ebay ironbird is the lowest of the crap with the tailpiece that was smaller than the USA version you could mount a kahler onto....
I had one of those POS units for a while. sold it as soon as someone offered me 50bucks more than I paid which was 275 with the case....
