im gonna be coming into some money later this year and i wanted a good solid guitar thats a fixed bridge, preferably through body stringing, 24 frets, with a red maple top.
this tick all the boxes
BUT

im not all that trusting of BC Rich guitars because i've played a few and they dont feel that great to me. although they were the low-end models, and i think im right in saying this one is a mid-range guitar

you can see it here
i can get it for £249

what do you all think?
opinions pleeeease

Doesn't it have an agathis body?

You can get the washburn x50pro for 50 pound extra, which has better pickups and wood.


EDIT: also a real top instead of a veneer.

^ I seriously doubt a £249 guitar will have an agathis body.

Check your quote. I fixed that before you even quoted me.

Also, just so you know, £249 pounds is over $500.

Umm...huh?

And, yeah, It probably would be a good idea to get the Washburn.

TS, it really would help if you'd give us the specs for the guitar.

*adds to sig*

i'm a very happy bloke

EDIT: The one a linked earlier has a Mahogany body. it'll sound much better. The extra switches are coil-tap/split and phase switches etc. Very versitile.

Oh...my...God...I didn't think it was possible...

I suddenly feel sorry for hundreds of little Metalheads just starting out on guitar...
They don't know any better!!
Why?! Damn you BC Rich!! WHY?!?!


Back on-topic, the Washburn that was suggested actually looks pretty nice.
http://washburn.com/products/electrics/x/x50.aspx

And, it has great specs. I'm tempted to get one, myself.

i totally didn't realise it was a bolt on neck.
completely killed it for me.

how shit

whats the point of having thru-body stringing and a bolt on neck?

and Agathis is a bad wood?
i have almost zero knowledge of woods.
except my Ibanez is mahogany and sounds bassier for it.

No. Instead of spending your money on a new guitar, why not put some SDs or Dimarzios in your Ibanez?

Edit - ^ Not the good ones.

For the second time in the last 5 minutes I'm agreeing with you again.
Mahogany is probably one of the best tone-woods.
and its got Rockfield pickups too!

Well i'm supposing you play metal, so some Dimarzio's or Seymour Duncans (But don't get the Dimebucker) or maybe swineshead's or BKP if your in the UK.

why do you suppose i play metal?
i play everything man, metal rarely actually.

i've looked into pickups once or twice before and i figured Dimarzio make the best.
maybe something like a PAF pro?

what am i saying! i dont want new pickups. quit brainwashing me.

I don't think it's Slash's sig. I think Thomann are just associating (sp?) the guitar with Slash's mockingbird.

same thing.

although that said, there was an interview with him and and dave kushner in total guitar a couple of issues ago, and apparently theres rumours of an endorsement deal.
slash was denying it though.
