Here’s my Ironbird Prophecy Mk 2… point-five. I custom-kitted out this one to the enth-degree.

I removed the direct-mounted Dimarzio super-distortion, then had the pickup route enlarged to to fit a covered SD pickup (was just enough room for the smaller uncovered dimarzio, and that was it). The new route is shielded to ensure there’s no EMI problems.

Added a pickup-ring so if the SD replacement p’up didn’t work out I hadn’t drilled the holes out of another humbucker ruining it for anything other than direct-mounting. Thankfully it worked out great!

I took a Duncan Custom, mag-swapped the cermaic for a rough-cast Alnico 2 mag instead of a regular Alnico 2, and then put on a black-chrome custom cover… making it a custom, custom-custom? 🙂

Changed the pot to a push-push, so you just need a little downward pressure to go from humbucker to split-coil mode; I found yanking the volume knob in the middle of playing a nuisance, and a light tap takes less co-ordination and is less distracting from performing overall. Also replaced the knob with a lower profile one with actual numerical markings so you can easily tell where you set the knob at a glance.

Added stainless steel parts to the floyd rose (pictured) which I think are mechanically smoother than the stock bits, and prefer them aesthetically. Also switched out the brass/magnesium pivot-posts for hardened stainless ones – I find the FR action much smoother now. Also replaced the sustain-block with a Genuine Floyd Rose Fat-Brass-Block for added tone and sustain.

Lastly, I replaced the tuners with locking ones, as well, once you’ve experienced the convenience of locking tuners when doing a string change, you’ll understand.

I have recently given it my full TLC treatment; I polished the frets, cleaned and oiled the fretboard with linseed-oil ( no cheap citrus oils for my boards), cleaned the body of the guitar, and put some D’Adderio XL 9’s on it.

Will throw in a B.C. Rich branded Softshell case with B.I.N. purchase!
