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.

Rave Warlock Bass?

I just bought a used BC Rich Rave Warlock Bass and the serial number is E616280. Can anyone tell me what year and where this was made? It is black, with EMG pickups, and has awsome tone. I love it and will not be selling it. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Rave Warlock Bass?

Sup? Well I also have one of the exact same bass's and I was wondering the exact same things, So I did some research and from what I understand they are pretty rare, came from korea and were only made in 1986. I don't know how much one woud sell for now though. How much did you pay for yours? I got mine from my cousin and she got in 1990 and says it's the only one she's ever seen.Write me back as soon as possible if you could. My name is Josh. Nice to finally find another one.

Re: Rave Warlock Bass?

Hey Sorry, but i have no idea about the bass, But i'm looking into buying one i found a good deal on (bass, plus case, plus amp for only $200!!)
I actually have a question for you .. what does it sounds like? As Far as tone go's what genre would you say?
If you could e-mail me back i'd appreciate it,
THNX!

Re: Rave Warlock Bass?

I just got one off of eBay in a hard case with S&H for $145.

Haven't gotten it in the mail yet. Ive been looking for feedback about these. Apparently these ARE quite rare! I will not be selling mine either once i get it!

Re: Rave Warlock Bass?

Hey, I just got one of these today. serial E701722. Its red and has one p style pickup. I got it at a pawn shop. Originally priced at $359. Ive been eyeing it for a couple months, and the price dropped the other day to $159. So I scored it. Any info on it would be great, thanx.

Help with Warlock serial BC30162 - what year, model? Also FOR SALE

I have a metallic blood red Warlock, serial BC30162, can anyone tell me how to get the year and model from this? (I know that the old BC Richs had the year as the first two digits up to 1982(?) so I guess it must be newer than that.)

It's also for sale if you wanna make me an offer (I am in London, UK).

gunslinger

i baught a bc rich gunslinger recently, well i traded it for a usa strat. the guitar is black with maple neck and fretboard.it has humbucker in the bridge and two single coils with floyd rose etc. i wont to know if it is a genuine usa model or not. it has made in usa written on the headstock and the backplate, but the serial number dosent make sense it is {b 7405}.now to me this would be a 1974 or 1987 or 1985 but im just guessing.can anyone shed some light and tell me if this guitar is a genuine usa model and also what date this thing is. thanks and cheers!

Re: help me date my gunslinger

: can anyone help date my bc rich gunslinger b 7405

LATE 80's made in japan, unless it says USA on the headstock then and only then its made in the US

Re: gunslinger

DUDE,
So far as I know the 5 digit SN with the 'R' logo is USA. They stopped stamping Made in USA on 'em before '84.

Re: help me date my gunslinger

NOT true the early ST-3's didnt have made in USA on headstock. that serial# sounds too low to be a gunslinger & is probably a FAKE. there are many fakes & parts guitars because during buy outs parts were sold to stores, & people who assembled them & passed them off as factory made guitars

BC Rich Beast bass guitar

I just bought one and it looks and sounds great,BUT,the neck is pulling down like crazy and after half an hour I have to stop playing.Could someone recommend a strap which will perhaps balance the bass better as it really is painful holding it up .ps I aint no wimp with weedy arms,I am a drummer of the fastest punkest variety.

Re: BC Rich Beast bass guitar

ralph marlin makes straps that are about 3 inches wdie....with a sorta rubber backround that makes your bass stay put. i had a arlock and was successful with a 3 inch leather strap...nylon sucks...it slides all over the place....the marlin straps are available at guitar center for about 20 bucks! check online...their prices are better through musicians friend! which is a subsidiary of guitar center!

I need help figuring out serial numbers for 70s BC Rich

There are some guitars I'm looking at buying. One is a mockingbird whose serial number is 80001. Does this mean it's the first guitar BC Rich made in 1980, or the first mockingbird of 1980, or neither?

It is a 1978 and not the first one of 80. In 78 they made over 2000 so the year number changed twice before we even got to 1980. hence 80001 was the 2001 guitar made 78.

Re: I need help figuring out serial numbers for 70s BC Rich

of 1980, or neither? In 78 they made over 2000 so the year number changed twice 80001 was the 2001 guitar made 78.

It appears that the 1st 77xxxs appeared in 76, 78xxx appeared in 77 & 80xxx appeared in 78. You are welcome to send pics n info!

ST III

I have a late 80's ST III. The neck plate has the BC Rich logo, serial number B 7323 and L.A. California U.S.A. on it. The headstock has the BC Rich logo and made in u.s.a. I'm hoping it's a handmade U.S.A. model, I believe I bought it late 88, early 89. It's also got a very nice custom graphics finish. I'm trying to find out 1) if it is a handmade BC Rich 2) what type of wood was used for the body? It is a pretty heavy guitar, 3) how much is she worth? Bridge pick up is a Dimarzio super distortion, bridge and neck are single coils, they are the originals and I'm assuming Dimarzio as well. The tremolo is the Ibanez Edge type. Any help would be most appreciated.

Re: ST III

yes it was made in USA, not really hand made but cali not NJ. ST-3's have poor resale value even with a graphic but it also depends on what graphic. the pickup sould be a double whammy in bridge, the ibanez bridge was used on earlier models. DUE TO EBAY they rarely sell for over 400 most pointy headstock strat types dont have resale value unless its an early CHarvel. the body is probably alder but may have been ordered any way. BCRich has NO way to verify boltons. If u can email me a pic. watch ebay & if we can agree on a fair price. ILL BUY IT

NJ series question

What's the deal with the NJ series guitars? Are they all imports or are there some made in USA? Thanks, Chris

Re: NJ series question

I am attaching an e-mail from the BCrich tech in regards to the NJ models. I hope this answers your question.
Joe

From the headstock it looks as if your guitar was made during the Class Axe era (80's to 90's) and they destroyed all of their production records. The NJ's are imports, which were originally made in Nagoya Japan, hence where the NJ comes from, currently made in Korea. Unfortunately, I am not sure of all the differences, particularly the body wood, pickups, scale length, hardware, electronics, etc. It is probably very similar to our current Platinum Series guitars & basses, but there are going to be differences in parts, since a different factory now makes our imported models.

The Class Axe guitars are not all made in Japan. They did make some USA made guitars & basses. If the guitar says USA on the HEADSTOCK then it's American Made. There are some NJ and Platinum models from the Class Axe era with "LA California" or "New Jersey, USA" on the NECK PLATE, these were made in Nagoya, Japan or in South Korea. However, there are some with the New Jersey and/or LA California neck plates that also have Made in USA on the headstock, and those were made in America

WARLOCK

SOME SELL ME A WARLOCK

Re: WARLOCK

: SOME SELL ME A WARLOCK

I have a Very nice, well maintained B.C. Rick Warlock neck through with a widow headstock, double locking tremelo, better B.C. Rich humbuckers that origonal, with and orangeish yellow sunburst finish and two stripes continuing the neck thru the body. For the guitar I am asking $760. I also have a B.C. Rich hardshell coffin case. Which the company does not make any more. I actually bought the last one they had in stock, so they tell me, but they don't make it anymore. I am asking an extra $40 to make it and even $800 but if you are just interested in the case it will be $100 considering that the case is in mint condition and I bought it for $160.

B.C. Rich body

I have a B.C. Rich NJ Series Warlock Trans. red and I just moved home across the pond to England. I think the damn workers on the container fucked my guitar up and i have a giant crack on either side of the neck of my guitar, on the body. One crack is about 2 inches long, the bastards! The only problem, besides the obvious, is that I do not know if the crack is in the paint, since it is trans. red and has a different top then a regular, or in the body. I am looking for a site that will sell trans. red NJ Warlock (2000 series)-but I am also refraining from going to B.C. Rich themselves seeing as to how they may make the body as expensive as a mother fucker. I do not need any hardware or a tremelo or anything and I would rather it be a new or immaculate condition body but anything without a giant asshole on the side of the neck is okay. Thanks!

P.S.-I do not know if my E-Mail address is activated, if it ain't then I will be royally fucked.
