Chinese counterfeit super bizarrely shaped thing labelled BC Rich

Words fail me!

OK, I'll try harder.

I saw this earlier on (via Facebook). For those not in the know, Aliexpress is one source of Chinese-made counterfeirt guitars, copies of Fenders, Gibsons, Rickenbackers (often dubbed Chenders, Chibsons and Chickenbackers) amongst others such as Gretsch, BC Rich, Ibanez, etc. Occasionally they have an original design or two, perhaps a hybrid guitar based on a particular brand but which never existed. And then there are things like the above pictured guitar, mad designs of their own. In this case they've cheekily put the BC Rich logo on the headstock (yhe headstock itself has the barest amount of shaping from the basic paddle blank shape). You can imagine the thinking here: "Oh, BC Rich do some wacky shaped guitars, just put their logo on it."

Poor ol' Bernardo Chavez Rico must be spinning in his grave.

  1. How on earth would you find a case for this monstrosity, let alone fit it in your car? :^)

  2. Oh my... what the he... no, that is just wrong! An abomination! Kill it, kill it!!

    How would you even ship something like that? The box underneath it is clearly inadequate for the job. If you trimmed the extra wood, you'd almost have enough for a second guitar body.

    I can't make any sense of that shape. Giant bottle opener, maybe? It's a warning, kids: this is what happens when your CNC programmer does drugs.

  3. some Star Trek fans should not be allowed to design guitars. I'm guessing it didn't come in THAT box? cheapest solution is a gigbag and a saw.
