So i know i don't have the money right now, so I'm not going to call them for a quote or go to a dealer for a quote or anything...

But anyone with some expereince with them, could you please give me a very rough extimate(like hopefully within 100 dollars or so) a Neck through Bich shape with a floyd rose on it and made out of maybe...alder or mahogany would run me?

Remember i just want like a ballpark price so i know how much to save up, so if your off by some its ok.

Just send them an Email. If anyone will be able to give you a rough quote, it's them.

I can't estimate down to the $100 mark, but expect to shell out anywhere from $3000 to $4000

I don't think bich has enough space at the rear end for a floyd rose tbh.

BCR only go through dealers. It's a bit ghey. They basically refuse to do direct business or sell parts.

I don't think it's worth the hassle TBH, as you'd have all the extra charge from your dealer, and shipping, and it would take forever to build... They are some of the best customs out there, but they're really only for big time pro players.

Either find a small custom luthier to do the exact thing you want, or buy one of BC's high end models, and customise it yourself.

There is no way that you can get any custom guitar for $100 or less, let alone $1,000 or less. A Floyd Rose alone costs more than $100. Don't even bother asking them about it if you expect it to be $100 or less, because it's not going to be that low priced.

Wow. Some people can't read. *cough*cough* IRONMAIDEN5, GLAMDRING22.*COUGH* He said to give him a rough estimate within 100 dollars so he knows how much he has to save up.
Be cool.

9/10 companies are like that unless you're an endorser or artist. A small luthier would take even longer to make it. Customize one of their high end models, and you'll ruin the value and never be able to sell it. Go to a dealer. I'm sure they have a spec sheet you can fill out and submit for an estimate, like most other custom shops

You misunderstood what I was saying.


I ment hopefully within a 100 dollar range of what the guitar would actually cost...

So if you said 1400...and I had to pay 1500 or so, then you would have answered my question.

3000 is alot =\

And I've checked they don't offer the BICH shape with both Floyd rose and neck through =( I think i saw some pictures on google of a bich with a floyd rose, but I'm prett sure they don't make it anymore.

Looks like I'm gona be waitin for my dream guitar for a while =(

Who knows, by the time you have the money saved up, your dream guitar could be something entirely different. My tastes have changed a lot over the years. Keep your options open and play around with stuff. Like CJRocker said, most companies are nto going to give you a direct quote. That's true in many industries. So when you have a couple to a few grand saved up and no emergencies to use it on, go talk to some dealers to get some quotes.
