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.

RICH...bc rich international on front

Does anyone have a guitar that has this on the headstock, front of the pegboard? the only one I've seen is mine.

Re: RICH...bc rich international on front

i've seen a few of these. the bc rich international series was an import series though i'm not sure of the years they were made. they were either made in indonesia or korea.
they were a lower line guitar along the lines of the bronze series made today.

BC Rich Stealth Headless bass?

I received a Stealth headless bass in electric blue as a graduation present in the late eighties, it has Bill Lawrence pick-ups, neck- through body, active eq, two-octave neck, ebony fingerboard, and the standard BC Rich electronics, but I've never seen another headless, and would like any info on how many were made and approximate value

Well, I bought a Rico wave

Well, I did it. I'm now the proud owner of a BC Rico Wave. Overall, I like it. The pickups, made by GOTOH, are servicable. (They will be replaced with a Bill Lawerance XL500 in the neck, and a Kramer Quad in the bridge.) The electronics will be upgraded to have 2 series/parallel/single coil switches, and a phase switch. And probably a refinish is in order. (Black, with silver leaf along the side beveled edges.) The bridge is a brilliant piece of genius! (Pat. Pending BC Rich stop/saddles.) I'll probably change the nut out, using a 1/2 brass, 1/2 bone compensated nut of my own design. Any Idea of the age of it? Serial # 1956. thanks for listening.

Rico Wave

The official scoop on RICO is all records were lost in a flood. RICOs are the reason that I started my archive to catalogue as many BCR instruments as posible. I hope that the instruments themselves will tell the story - since no-one else seems willing. So far, it is posible that Ricos were made somewhere between 76 & 82. Neal Moser mentions on his site that he made the Bich proto (September 76) while Bernie was in Japan to work up a deal to start importing guitars. I guess we'll have to wait on Neal's book to get more info on that. Meanwhile, the serial number format changed to 6 digits in 1982. There is an article from Vintage Guitar Player magazine about Bernie Rico and his guitars that is really good reading. The author says that only 150 Ricos were imported before the name was changed to RICH. The Rich instruments didn't move to the 6 digit SN format until after the NJ Series started. The earliest RICH NJs with the 6 digit SN are from 83, so far. It really does look like the first digit of the 4 digit SN is the year, so far. This would make yours an 81. It's really to early in my research to be sure: I only have 17 Rico's, 10 Rich's & 5 NJ's in my list that predate the bigger SN format. Send pics to BROCKWOOD64@NETSCAPE.NET & ROCKON! Bart

Sounds like that will be a real nice guitar when you done. The wave is one of my favorite body styles. i'm not exactly sure but i would say its from 81-82. that would probably be pretty close. good quality made in japan. enjoy it!
