I've personally spent some time with Bernie. He's the nicest, friendliest, most laid back person you could ever want to meet. He's got a long road ahead of him and could really use any help we can give him.
Regrettably I'm selling my Bernie Rico Jr custom 8 string, only reason is I have a huge amount of taxes to pay by November. I am primarily a 7 string player and something has to go.
It is the most brutal, aggressive sounding guitar I've owned. Sounds huge and pissed off, wood...
I received this guitar some time ago after a 2+ year wait, it was about time I posted a proper NGD about it.
Let's first see the thing in action:
And mandatory pics of course:
- Hesperian Slant body shape (Black Friday)
- 8 string, 24 frets
- 27.5" scale
- maple neck...
Alright, fellas, here's the deal - time is running short and the Tax man needs his money, so I have to sell something. Not everything has to go, but, these are all for sale or trade - please don't hesitate to make any offer you might think of - I'm easy to work with and fairly open minded...
I'm thinking about selling my spot for the guitar below. I've been on the waiting list for year and 3 months and I've already paid $1100.00 down on the guitar and all that is left to be paid is $955.00 (includes shipping).

Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar: Bernie Rico Junior 627 Hesperian Slant top. Looks in flawless condition. Just seeing what is out there, not in a big rush to move this one, but if something interesting comes along, then sure. HAs the SD AHB-3n. Probably one of the best shredders...
I hate to get rid of her, but I need money for college soon. Also comes with passive EMGs that were originally placed in it before the Anderson HC1+
Mahogany body and neck
Looking for 2700, negotiable.
Picky on trades trades but...

I had no idea who he was, but apparently he's "known for his work with Whitesnake". It's based on the 245, with a bigger neck profile and a bound board. MIK.
Top Wood: Carved Maple with Flame Maple Veneer and Creme Binding
Back Wood: Thick Mahogany
Hey every one I'm new to this forum just wanted to say hello and share my Rico with you all :D

I used my Bernie Rico Jr Jekyll 727 (BKP Black Dog bridge) through the Axe-FX for guitar tones.
It's not mastered super loud so crank it up a bit :metal:
Just recorded a quick clip of Misha playing my Bernie Rico Jr Jekyll 727 to show off how huge it sounds. The pickup you're hearing is a BKP Black Dog.
So I am on a work trip to So Cal this week and decided to take a trip down to Mr. Bernie Rico's Jr's shop to discuss the final specs of my custom build :hbang:
Bernie is a really nice and a genuinely cool guy, he invited me down to the shop and he took close to six hours out of his busy day...
