Is it an optical illusion, or are those frets huge?
Looks like a little bit of both. It does have massive frets but they look like what you would find on a nice Jackson...which is also what I like on my Strats too. When I refret my guitars I use the biggest fret wire I can get my hands on and they turn out very similar to that one.

I think my snark was misunderstood.
The body shape doesn't look like any of their 1980's guitars that I know of (though I'm no expert), but looks like one of Bernie Rico Jr's shapes, and I definitely wanted one of his guitars! Unfortunately, his business seems to have gone belly-up, with some controversy, to boot. I'm glad BC Rich is giving this style a try, and I hope they resurrect more of the Bernie Rico Jr. patterns in the future.
Abalone binding has been a thing for a while-- Schecter & ESP have been doing it for more than a decade, and a whole bunch of acoustic guitar makers have been doing it, too. I'm not singling-out BC Rich when I say I'm not nuts about it, since I also haven't been nuts about it when any other manufacturer started doing it. In general, it's an industry trend I would very much like to see go away, never to return (that, and "aged" new instruments). Apparently, there are lots of people who disagree with me on that point, as the aforementioned examples have been selling quite well. I have no idea if there were Schecter or ESP fans who complained about the release of the Schecter Diamond Series, ESP's "LTD" series, or the new models contained therein, but if there were, they didn't make much of a dent. All that to say, it's entirely-possible these new models will attract enough new buyers to render the "BC Rich club" complaints effectively moot. Time, and sales, will tell, of course.
Are they making this again? I want this.
That thing is crazy hot. I'd buy it and hang it on the wall just for inspiration.
what size are those railroad tracks>>>those are bigs frets
