I've had this guitar for about a month now and it's glorious, you can tell there's been a lot of thought put into each aspect and finished beautifully. Swapping the strings out proved much easier than expected and the trem stability is shockingly good, even after a fair amount of abuse. I did have a little trouble setting the initial intonation and fired a quick email to the folk at BC Rich, who called me back in minutes (incredible customer service) and showed me i was being a bit stupid and had a string backwards (you're gonna want to clip the ball end and clamp that to the trem, not just feed the end through). On that, the intonation is now spot on and super stable. The neck joint is so smooth that upper fret access it a joy and the rest of the neck is smooth and easy on the fingers. Tonally the push/pull pickups add some great subtle choices on clean and with the gain turned up its something else, growling through everything I can throw at it. I'm really struggling to find anything I dislike, I'm 100% in love with this thing. Additional thanks the Damon at Red Blanket, due to a lack of reviews i bugged him quite relentlessly about the guitar and I got back great advice.
