I'm not sure about the acrlic ones but you would get flamed for asking if you should buy a normal one. What kind of music do you play?


Since yo u like Dire straits you could get a strat thats what Knoplfer uses most of the time.

my friend had a acrylic mocking bird...its green, acrylic have a weird tone, some people hate them, but if you like it go for it, i dont think it matters what other people think on here,b/c they hate bc richs,i happen to like them...but the body wood is the bad thing about the normal ones,its cheap...but prepared to get flamed for mentioning B and C,with Rich in this forum...some people will be asses about it...


edit: one brand of guitar you could look at is an ibanez,no matter what they have good guitars,except ones with a Edge III tremelo....but check them out,or maybe schecters,since people will say that ne way

Hm..since when is plastic considered a tonewood?

You can get MUCH better for the price. Post what kind of music you play and what kind of sound you're looking for and we can recommend some really good guitars for that price.

I have the bc rich NJ Classic seiries Bich model and it sounds very good. It's all one peice, unlike most guitars. I got it for $600.

The NJ series is pretty good. I'd recommend you look at those instead of the acrylics if you like the shapes.

i have the special edition mockingbird which is just the platinum series with a mirror scratchplate(i think) n its a pretty decent guitar. nice neck n really good sustain.

personally i would never buy a guitar made of plastic but iv never played one so if u like the sound get it.

dunno y people hate bc rich so much......
#13
i dunno either...maybe b/c they have a metal look and thats y some want one or b/c people buy the low end ones and get pissed and assume the rest suck ass...

yeah, that's exactly what happens because retailers don't usually sell the NJ series or anything other than the "low-enders"..well, at least the GC i go to

i believe the reason is simply because they want the pointiest looking guitars with flashy paintjobs so that a 10 year old kid wanting to play guitar will look at it and want it right away...i've actually seen parents going into the store and immediately heading to the warlocks, pick one up, survey it, usually saying something along the lines of "little Timmy would love this one" and buying it...what a shame, that's why i suggest bringing an experienced guitarist with you to buy one...

Do you mean that B.C. rich is a worse guitar then my ibanez?

they look better, the necks last longer, and they sound much better
i had a bich and my ibanez s series blew it away
