the ultimate guide to bc rich guitars past, present and future

Hi,
Just a wee bit of background about myself I am
29, and have been playing guitar/bass for 15 years .
Throughout the years I have had Gibsons, Fenders,
Rickies, Yamahas, Ibanez, Washburns etc... and was
generally very happy with what I had at that time. I
then discovered B.C. Rich guitars and was hooked.
They beat every competitor in every dep., build
quality, sound, variety of woods, pickups etc, support
was fantastic and so on. I then began to collect more
B.C. Rich's and haven't been disappointed with any of
them.

What year was the Snakeskin coloured (body art?) Warlock Produced?

I recently saw a warlock in a guitar shop near my house that has a snakeskin paint design on the fron side of the body. this guitar looks to be like a body art edition, but I have no clue what year. It says platinum series on the headstock and has a 3 way pickup switch, and also a switch for series/parallel I think. The tremolo system is also similar to that of a strat with strings thru body, rather than the usual floyd rose or khaler style on BC Rich's. Anyone have any ideas what edition or year this model could be?

vintage B.C.Rich

I just traded a new les paul for a vintage B.C.Rich,U.S.A serial number 1205

Identifying when my warlock was made

G'day all, I am writing as I recently purchased a 2nd hand BC Rich warlock, the plate on the back of the neck says "BC Rich, L.A. California", and it has made in U.S.A. on the headstock. The serial # is BCI 1270. I wonder if anyone could help me find out when the beast was made and what series it is (if it is from a series) and what it might be worth either when it was made or now. Any help would be greatly appreciated, cheers!

NJ series Wave

I am the previous owner of an early '80's BC Rich NJ series Wave 4 string bass. She conveniently disappeared, along with the buddy I loaned her to. Shame on me. Now I am looking to replace her at his expense. If anyone can give me an idea how much one is worth or where I can get one now, please drop me an e-mail. I'll respond with more information, if requested.

info about bc rich

i bought my bc rich at a pawn shop 4 years ago and it came with no info it has a gunslinger body [yellow[ .2 single coils with one humbucker serial #11343 made in la california ,thank you

Re: info about bc rich

: i bought my bc rich at a pawn shop 4 years ago and it came with no info it has a gunslinger body [yellow[ .2 single coils with one humbucker serial #11343 made in la california ,thank you

2 sings. & 1 hum = ST3, not gunslinger.
the gunslingers only had 1 slanted hum.
guessing by the ser# its probably an import guitar.
unless it has made in USA on the headstock.
the LA,Calif on the neck plate only states where the company was based from not where the guitar was built.

does it have anything on the headstock like Made in USA, NJ Series, Platinum Series?

BC Rich USA class axe Bich

i just got one of these, does any body know if BC Rich USA ever made set neck guitars or is this for sure a neck thru? also, is the USA made class axe considered a "quality guitar"?

Re: BC Rich USA class axe Bich

: i just got one of these, does any body know if BC Rich USA ever made set neck guitars or is this for sure a neck thru? also, is the USA made class axe considered a "quality guitar"?

you got the real deal.if it has "R" on the headstock its hand made with a one piece neck through body, like mine

Re: BC Rich USA class axe Bich

i dont recall ever seeing any class axe era set neck guitars so it probably is a neck thru. and even though the guitars aren't thought of that well(being class axe) they did make some nice usa guitars.

I can borrow a digital camera and take some photo's but have no clue what it's worth. The list when I bought it back in 1980-something was $2400. I know it's USA made. I believe they called it LA Series. I just don't want to go through the trouble if someone's gonna offer me $50. Know what I mean?

Rick Derringers First Stealth

I happen to see your site and thought this might be of intrest. I purchased Rick Derringers first ever BC Rich (stealth) last year and I am going to Dallas this week to interview Rick in regards to this guitar. It is one of the most pro sounding guitars I've ever recorded with. Along with the serial number Rick had it named "Little Dymie". For history's sake I thought I should gather as much information as possible. Keep playing that rock and roll, Jim Leslie

Re: Rick Derringers First Stealth

Whos Rick Derringer?lol

Need help identifying Nj Warlock.

I was wondering if anyone could help me indentify my nj series warlock, to see the year or anything. I bought it from a pawnshop a while back. I think it may be a early 90's or so warlock. If anyone knows a place to identify the serials or anything contact me.

Older USA BICH for sell

I have a WHITE '80s US neck-thru Bich for sell. I thought it was a Supreme, but have been informed that Supremes ONLY came with neck binding and ebony boards. Mine is unbound, rosewood board, GOLD hardware, the inlayed "R" in the headstock and all the goodies (pre-amp, chorus, distortion, etc). To the best of my knowledge, everything is working fine. Recently had the battery wire fixed and everything else was checked by a professional...he said she "sounded GREAT for a 20-year-old guitar". It has the original hardshell case and an interesting feature...a gold-plated plate inlayed in the back of the headstock with the serial number (81269) above "THE BITCH" engraved in Old English lettering (notice the added 'T'). She's about a 8 out of 10 condition-wise, having MINOR finish repair where the paint was damaged.If anyone is interested, I have pics and am asking $1500. Thanks. - Richard

Re: Older USA BICH for sell

Hey is this still for sale? Let me know - cwolf@atometron.com

Thanks!

Bich Wiring

I have an early 80s Bich Supreme that has a broken wire on one of the battery connectors. I can't locate schematics for the early guitars online. Anyone able to draw where the battery wires lead to and I can send a SAS envelope for the drawing? No one here locally know how to repair the wiring. Oh yeah,has a strange feature...a brass plate on the back of the headstock containing the serial number and the words "THE BITCH" engraved in Old English lettering (notice the "t" has been added to the name). No idea what she's worth but thinking about putting her up for sell once repaired for about $1500 w/ orininal case. Let me know about the wiring please. Thanks.
