B.C. Rich Ironbird Pro Electric Guitar Spalted Ebony Fretboard

B.C. Rich Ironbird Pro Electric Guitar Spalted Ebony FretboardToday’s featured guitar is the B.C. Rich Ironbird Pro Electric Guitar Spalted Ebony Fretboard. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The B.C. Rich Ironbird Pro Electric Guitar looks amazing with its Onyx finish and offers professional features such as classic B.C. silver painted bevels, neck-through construction and an active EMG-81 humbucker. The Ironbird Pro guitar has the fire-power needed to heat up any stage.

Introduced in 1983, the Ironbird’s angular lines and striking appearance have earned many loyal followers throughout the years. This guitar combines all the professional you’ve come to expect from B.C. Rich, such as neck-through design, 24-5/8″ scale length, an EMG-81 pickup, Grover tuners and Floyd Rose Original tremolo.

B.C. Rich is known as one of the pioneers in Neck Through construction. They utilize it on many of their guitars, because it provides the best possible sustain, resonance, comfort and access to higher frets. Neck-through has long been considered the premium construction method for high-end guitars. This construction starts with premium maple or mahogany and runs from the tip of the headstock to the end of the guitar. This means that the headstock, fingerboard, pickups and bridge all are mounted to this single sound foundation. Sonically it is a difference you can hear.

Using a ceramic magnet, the EMG-81 active humbucker is a high-output pickup designed especially for the lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you’re playing power rock and roll, or overdriving your amp, there’s a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you’re looking for exceptional qualities in a rock pickup, the EMG-81 is the one.

Most of B.C. Rich body styles employ a beveled edge around the shape. In many ways bevels on a top are similar to facets on a cut stone. They catch the light and reflect at different angles giving the instrument more of a three dimensional look. Some of the B.C. Rich top bevels are extreme and wide while others are subtle and narrow. Occasionally the shape of the instrument is accented by painting the bevels a contrasting color.

Other appointments on this awesome shredder include C neck shape, 24 jumbo frets, 1-11/16″ nut width, 12″ radius, Floyd Rose Original bridge, Grover tuners, and a gloss finish.

Fender American Standard Stratocaster Left-Handed Electric Guitar Black Maple FretboardToday’s featured guitar is the Fender American Standard Stratocaster Left-Handed Electric Guitar Black Maple Fretboard. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The Fender American Stratocaster Electric Guitar is a Fender icon. Yep, even the Lefty. Juicy upgrades include a richer, deeper neck tint for a more elegant and expensive appearance. Glossed neck front for improved looks with satin back for smooth playability. Bent steel Fender saddles with classic look and great tone. String spacing narrowed for modern playability, saddle height screws re-sized to reduce rough feel, and string slot on saddle elongated to reduce string friction or breakage. Copper Infused Cast Strat® Bridge Block (steel with copper- 100% metal) for increased mass and improved tone. This Strat features the original headstock shape but has staggered machine heads losing one string tree and improving string angle over the nut. Custom staggered pickup magnets improve string-to-string balance and give the G-string better tone. Cosmetics include parchment/black/parchment pickguard and parchment pickup covers, knobs, and tips.

The return of the American Standard Series Strat continues Fender’s tradition of commitment to the people who play Fender instruments out there in the real world. Today’s American Standard Stratocaster guitars are worthy heirs of their revered ancestors–mindful of player needs and taking full advantage of modern advances, yet remaining completely true to the elements and spirit that made these instruments legendary in the first place. Improvements include redesigned bridges, neck and body finishes, and a Fender-exclusive high-tech molded case. Still there are the beloved hand-rolled fingerboard edges, alnico V pickups and staggered tuning machines for tone and stability guaranteed to last a lifetime (with its limited lifetime warranty)! So make history with the redesigned American Standard!

Redesigned American Standard Strat® Bridge

Bridge Component Specifics

‘American Standard’ saddles- The original vintage-style Fender bent steel adjustable saddle is one of the components that give vintage Fenders their tonal ‘mojo’. Fender conducted tone comparison tests, and fell in love with them all over again. They have a wider tonal range and more character many other saddles. Then Fender improved them; narrowing the spacing to afford more room (and complement the bigger frets and rolled edges), and also elongated the string slot to reduce friction and string breakage, while improving the string break angle over the primary contact point.

‘Tone-fusion’ block- A typical cast bridge block is impregnated with a resin to eliminate ‘voids’ in the material and to bond it together  this steel block is infused with copper, which makes
