I called this article a "Really Stupid Story",
because I think that people who base their buying decisions solely
on name brand, are intellectually challenged. Or to use a really
politically incorrect word "STUPID"
These people get a name brand burned into their
head, and can't see one inch past their noses. They cheat themselves
out of many good things, because they simply won't give anything
else a chance.
In 1999 I decided to release the
Quicksilver Guitar and I stopped
calling this "The Mystery Guitar" I listed this guitar along
with all the other BC Rich models. I think I may have sold a
grand total of two of these since I buried the name "Mystery Guitar".
Notice the sweeping line at the neck joint,
This was yet another reason this
guitar was better than
PRS. There was no heel to get in the way.
It's totally ironic that when Bernie died, his
son chose this guitar to immortalize him. This guitar was the main
topic of 15 long conversations between Bernie & myself before he died.
As I mentioned above I decided to promote my
own guitars in 1999 and released the Quicksilver. The Quicksilver
offers everything the Exclusive does cosmetically. The Quicksilver
has a superior tone due to the direct coupled construction and my
trademarked pickup mounted neck mounting system.
If you would like to see the my next generation
designs after this guitar I suggest you look at the Quicksilver,
They come with numerous neck mounting options and have proven
to be the most versatile guitars I have ever built. They Are
Available In Bolt In Version, Set In Version, Neck Thru Body And
Deep Set Neck Tenon Versions.
