The second Punisher design turns up in the 1992 B.C. Rich catalog and some related advertisements but it doesn't really look like the Punisher we know. These were supposed to be the production models and they had a bolt-on neck, pointy headstock, a single humbucker and a "money bag" inlay pattern
. However, I'm inclined to believe that only one bass in this configuration was ever built. All known photos (one or possibly two photo shoots and the pic of the instrument itself in the catalog which was also used in ads) are of the same instrument with the exact same signature dated "Dec. '91". One of ads of the day that features the second prototype (the "Gene Simmons blew his mind..." ad) notes that the Revenge album is out which means that it was in print by May of 1992. Although the dating of the various ads is unknown I'm inclined to believe that the picture-less, albeit highly optimistic, ad to the right here replaced the earlier ads while the production model was re-made according to Gene's altered specs. Having a production instrument that didn't match Gene's stage instrument would surely have been a recipe for financial disaster. This would also go some way towards explaining the Punisher's abscence from the Unholy video and the short UK tour in May.
