THX DUDE YOU ARE THE BEST.

I know man ;). I want the exact model of course.

what strikes me most is the reversed head plate and the vintage trem.

yeah i know its an Iron Bird but is it the old school 80's US series? it makes me wonder cuz it doesn't have a Floyd Rose. Is it the NJ series? Bronze? Platinum?

That's looks more like a generic strat-type trem than a wilkinson, there's no mounting poles for it to float on, it's screwed straight onto the body.

I think there's the knife-edge Wilkinsons and the screwed-on ones but I could be wrong.

BC Rich Silver Series Ironbird from the mid 90s, made in Korea.

The higher series was called 'gold series' and featured a single locking Floyd Rose style trem while the 'high end* 'diamond series' featured a double locking one.

My first guitar was a Silver Series Warlock. It was okay for learning how to play...

I even still played it at the Obscene Extreme fest back in 2000:
