Links to a spec list might help, but honestly, I wouldn't be caught dead playing anything that looked like that. :lol:

Word to the wise, too -

No idea how things stand today. But back in the day, the BC Rich basses were the WORST neck heavy, neck plunging, neck diving sumbitches I ever had the misfortune to play. My bro (Rick, Leon) has one, and it's both heavy and awkward.

Tone and playability are decent, though. Not outstanding, but definitely the better side of acceptable.
