    B.C.Rich beast copy made by tulsi guitars
    Black colour
    set neck
    Body-anigrain
    rosewoood fretboard (nice work, quite smooth)
    24 frets
    Medium-jumbo frets
    dot inlays
    Fixed bridge
    1 volume n 1 tone control
    3 way pick up selector
    Got dis guitar just two days back...
    i ws nt too sure abt the wood, xpected it to be a bit heavy den it rly is, but its fyn, no problem wid it, tone is gud...
    I'm using the stock pickups only, korean made, which arent bad anyhw... gud response... M able to get a thick distortion as well a reasonably clean tone fr leads...
    Vil change them sumtym later to SD dave mustain livewires or EMG 81/85, if i feel the need.
    N superb paint job, awesome work, m impressed...
    At hand i only had an ibanez GRX20 to compare it with, which stands nowhere in terms of playibility, sound n looks(dis is quite subjective thou). But yeah, i've played a few rg series guitars as well n tulsi competes very well, n myt overpower... Just lacks a tremelo bar, which i deliberately omitted coz m nt rly into insane solos n i dont want those tuning problems pop up nw n then aftr using them... I'll manage wid the processor's whammy just in case i need it sum tym(dats vry rare)...
    N i opted fr a set neck to get better sustain...
    Got in a hard case, which seems to be constructed well too... Vil get to know abt the durability as the time passes...
    N i tried uploading the pics, but some error occured, vil post the pics sun, prbly by nyt...
    C ya guys...

    @harsh:
    Thanx mate.
    Its an 'almost' xact copy, i mean i've just changed the neck frm bolt-in to set neck, as my preference, n used a fixed bridge instead of a floating one. I cunt see a reason fr tampering the shape, pickup configuration n all, so used as in original.
    The neck is 5.5cms at 21st fret... Dont know the xact radius, but its quite slim, must nt hamper playability at higher frets.
    N am nt rly sure abt wt paint is used nor hv i got a lot of idea abt the paints.

    nice guitar..I have contemplated getting a tulsi guitar for the longest time now.I am just worried about the neck.I know he does the body well and the fact that his paint job's top notch..but i only feel comfortable with an ibanez prestige kinda neck with the wide fretboard.Will tulsi manufacture the neck according to the dimensions given by you ??..also how much time did it take from the day of ordering to delivery ?....how are the electronics ??...n yes..how much did the beast cost ya ?...
