Oh no I am with you on the BC Rich thing, I've owned a couple BC Rich guitars and my term for them is Firewood haha. Used to be attracted to them as a youngster purely for their aesthetics, but I've long since grown out of that. I had one US custom bich that played well but it got stolen! I also had a nice us warlock but it had weird neck issues that needed tweaking. But that sig eagle kinda caught my eye.
I remember when my ex bought his bongo he got so much # from everyone because it looked so different but it was so nice, only thing I didn't care for was the pick guard but I tend to dislike those on any guitar. Never had the chance to play a stingray but I've only ever heard good things.
Greg Weeks isn't a mind blowing bass player, I just always loved The Red Chord and I appreciated his taste in guitars. Plus he and Mike Gunface McKenzie are, in my opinion, hilarious.
YES! I could NEVER use a pick on bass and I used to get flak for that a lot. Did try but I'm a plucker and a slapper when it comes to bass, using the pick on those heavy gauged strings always felt clunky and weird.
Of course I'm down to hear your band if I haven't unknowingly already, when you get a moment u2u me something.
Edit: This is The Red Chord, they're deathcore, not sure how you feel about that..
