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.

depends on who you talk to...ive seen them range from 199 to 699. my x got his stolen, and ive been trying...to no avail to find a replacement. but you should be able to google it and see what the model is going for

Why ask?

People,if you ask a question,and people,namely me,offer to help,then at least have the decency to email them/me

I'm getting bored of offering to help and getting no replies,pretty soon I'll stop offering,and I know a great deal about B.C.Riches

looking for elvira warlock bass and blood smear bass

ive been looking for these basses for a while with no luck. i should have bought the elvira when it came out, the one im looking for was a platnum series i think came out possibly 4 or 5 years ago. ive also been looking for an early 90s bass that was white with a blood smear paint job. i think they were warlocks and maybe gunslingers. i also think there was a virgin the first and second year class axe offered it. i could be wrong though im getting old. i ended up buying a black bolt on usa bass instead of the blood smear warlock because i was a couple of hundred too short at the time and ive regretted never getting one (though i probebly cant afford one now either).

Re: looking for elvira warlock bass and blood smear bass

There was no Elvira bass,only guitars

Can anyone suggest how much I should ask for it?

BC Rich Calibre Warlock with Seymour Duncan

Hallo,
my "made in Europe" Calibre Warlock has two Seymour Duncan humbuckers instead of the Rockfield pick-ups (which should be the regular ones). Since BC RICH staff members told me that in Germany those guitars come out with SD, do you know the exact pick-up model?
Thank you.

Please assist w/dating a Bronze series Warlock

Serial number on back of guitar reads: 52338398. Headstock is 6 pegged on same side, bolt-on neck, dot fret markers fingerboard. No markings on headstock other than BC Rich sig and the nut cover reading Warlock. Just snagged it from a pawn shop for my friends' 13 year old son.

Any help anyone can provide re: date of manufacture would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

What Year BC Rich Warlock Bass and possible Value

Bought this from a individual about a year ago and im looking for more info about the year it was made and maybe the value of it.It has the "R" on the headstock not BC Rich name, Serial number B007447, im 100% sure the number after the B is a zero not an O as in B.O. for Bolt on neck although it is a bolt on.I have looked all over the web and can find no info or serial number matches for this particular guitar. Thanks for any feedback.

Re: What Year BC Rich Warlock Bass and possible Value

You won't find any info on this serial number system,and the usual websites are invariably wrong on what they tell you about the import and USA stuff anyway.
The bass you own is a JE series bass,JE standing for Japan Edition,it wasn't supposed to leave Japan,it's probably recent,but without the model #,I couldn't give you a clue about value,sorry

I think there were more than 230+ that made it past customs. Then the lawsuit over the Rico name came into effect. They're really the same as a US made in all aspects. They were just put together in Japan and shipped back to the U.S.... I saw one a week ago that was $800.00. I think that's a fair asking price for one almost mint. If it's mint, $1,000 would be a good price. I paid $350 back in 1993 for the one I used to own. I kick myself in the ass everyday for selling her! Hope this helps.

Serial number S00054193 warlock bass-guitar

Where this guitar is made? Assure that of Japan, whether but so it?
