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.

guitar's value and worth

guitars ..much like anything else are worth whatever someone is willing to pay you. life is harsh when it comes to re-sale. chances are if your asking its worth...you basically want to sell it. buyers are cheap,and looking for deals...so figure out what did you pay....then knock off 60% of that. a typical pawn shop will offer you 33% of what it was new and the price will drop based on condition. ebay is a good source to "price" things by. find one like yours....see what it sells for. base your price by the condition. if you have a koa or korina wood, or any "good" guitar...you may get a nice price...but dont bet on it. bottom line...be happy with what you have. or sell it at a loss and move on.

80's Ironbird Neck Thru w/

Just wondering what this guitar might be worth, and what year it was made. I believe it's an 80's era Ironird. Its got the big "R" on the headstock, all tuners on one side, Kahler tremelo, and a "metal and rivets" paint job, with the initials "SL" painted on the back of the guitar, 1 bridge pickup (EMG), and serial number "0388.

Its a killer guitar with a great sound, perfect action. Any info would be appreciated, please send me an email, and thanks!

Selling my Mick Thompson B.C. Rich!!!!!!!!

This is the real deal! You cant find this version anywhere else, trust me I've looked all over the net! This is the one that has "HATE" spelled out on the first four frets. It has the EMG pickups at the neck and bridge. And I'm selling it with the coffin case. Like I said this is the real version and not that cheap one I keep seeing everywhere on the internet. But I'm selling it for a very good price. Send me an E-mail if you are interested!

Re: Selling my Mick Thompson B.C. Rich!!!!!!!!

: If you're still selling the Mick Thomson Warlock how much is it?

Stealth

Is anyone selling an NJ Series stealth? Give me a price and pics.

Thanks

Mockingbird: What year is it? 717 under Floyd cover.

I can't find any serial number on this Mockingbird NJ guitar and wnt to know what year it is. Just has #717 engraved into the wood under the Floyd Rose spring cover. It's under the stock paint too, so it wsn't added after production. I got this Mockingbird NJ Neck Thru TM, with a Floyd Rose, BC signature pups, quilted top, on eBay for $325.00. The guy selling bought it used and didn't know anything about it. It has the fancy late logo on headtock. Great workmanship, straight as an arrow, acoustics of the wood are awesome. I can't belive how kickass it is and for only $325.00, near perfect! I plan to add Seymour Duncans and other goodies to really make it crank. Thanks for any info! ...T

Warlock Platinum Series

A friend of mine gave me an older Warlock that he had sitting around at his house. It's a bolt on neck Platinum Series serial # E614521. I'm trying to get more info on it (such as the date it was made) as it does not have a bridge on it, and I would like to replace it with an original bridge (if possible).

I've been all over the net trying to date this guitar. It's not like any other Warlock that I can find a pic of. It has two knobs and two toggles. All the other Warlocks I can find have three knobs and one toggle. Any info you guys can offer would be most appreciated. I'd love to get this guitar back to playable condition and as authentic as possible.

Thanks for reading! I look forward to replies. :)

Re: Warlock Platinum Series

I have this same basic guitar. Serial #614447. I bought mine in the mid eighties. I bought it used, but it was not very old at the time. So I belive these are probably mid to early 80's vintage. This was not a very expensive guitar at the time maybe around $150.00 range.

1969 BC Rich, Les Paul shape ? worth

I currently own two bc richs, a 1983 rich bitch supreme with active electronics, and 1969 bc rich Les Paul shape, which according to vintage guitar magazine the first of only ten guitars made, it has no serial numbers, Gibson tuners, knobs, pickups, its made out of mahogony, black with diamond inlays, does anyone else have any information, how much is it worth. Thanks Tony

Re: 1969 BC Rich, Les Paul shape ? worth

You should post links to pictures if you can. That will help a lot in determining age, condition, value, etc...

Hope this helps

serial number and possible vale

hi, i have a rave2 and would like to know the possible vaue on this guitar. the serial number is 16369. it was bought in the usa and would like to know the year and origin.

Question on my oddball Lefty BC Rich

Heya all - hoping you might know something of this guitar.

First, here's some pics:

http://home.earthlink.net/~fred.clark/Front_3.JPG
http://home.earthlink.net/~fred.clark/Back_resize.JPG

I bought the guitar used around 1992 for approx $350.00 in traded gear. I added the pickup rings and chrome knob, but all else is as I got it. It has a Seymore Duncan Alnico II in the front and a JB in the rear, and a pull tap on the volume for the front pickup. The tuners are black Grover minis, and the bridge is a standard Floyd Rose. Other than some corrosion on the neck plate there's not a scratch on it. The shop I bought it from said it was a custom order that the previous owner didn't like as the neck was wider than he was comfortable with (great for me as my hands are big) so the owner traded it to him and that's all he knew about it. I assumed this to be from the "Class Axe" days, but the "LA California" stamp on the neck plate and the angle of the neck heel seem not to jibe with those guitars, not to mention the grade of hardware. The serial number is "B 8256" but I couldn't tell from the breakdown of serial numbers on your site what year it might have been built.
I'm not looking to sell it as it sounds amazing (sustain like a synth on this thing!) but it would be intersting to know what year, where it was built etc.

I'm not looking to sell it as I love the guitar (sustain on this thing is amazing!) but I'd be interested in knowing if it's a BC LA, Class Axe, whatever, and what it might be worth. I've never seen another quite like it so it'd be interesting to find out!

Thanks in advance and hope you can help

Fred

Re: Question on my oddball Lefty BC Rich

Hi Fred,that is an Assassin from about 1987 or 1988,so nothing to do with Class Axe-very unusual to have the paintjob go all the way around the body-the cover over the trem springs is not original though and the cavity cover shows it to be American:-)

Re: Question on my oddball Lefty BC Rich

Nice - thanks for the reply! It does seem to be rather an unusual beast - glad it came from the BC Rich shop.

Thanks again for the reply

Fred

PS = anty guess as to what's it's worth?

Not really mate,they usually go for anyhing between $300 and $500 which is a shame as they are far higher quality guitars than the ebay sharks realize:-(

BCRich

I was wondering if you could tell something about my guitar. I believe I bought in 84 or 85 but I don’t anything other then that. I checked out the website but I couldn’t find anything even close to what I have. The serial # is BC14235 it has the MADE IN THE U.S.A just below the BC Rich logo 1 Humbucker and 2 single pickups . 1 tone & 1 Volume & 3 mini switches.If anyone could tell what year it was made or what series is it?

You cannot really date Bolt on guitars acurrately from their serial numbers,as the neckplate was just grabbed out of a large box in the middle of the assembly table

Best guess is 1989 from the number and it is a ST-III model

83 mockingbird

There is an 83 mockingbird listed on ebay. The serial number is 86406.x. It is being listed as a USA made rich, but is not stamped 'USA'. So my question is, is this a USA made rich. If anyone out there knows the answer I would greatly appreciate the feedback. Thanks!

It is a Real USA made BCR-not all-or indeed many USA made BCRs had the "Made In USA" Stamp

Need new Floyd Rose for platinum ST

The tremolo on my old but trusty platinum ST has irrepairably broken, so I need a new one. Unfortunately, the post hole are different from the 'standard' Floyd Rose (meaning, I can't pick one up from the local guitar shop), and I don't want to go plugging old holes and drilling new ones into the guitar if I can help it. So can anyone shed any light on what exactly was fitted into these guitars, how they differ from the normal tremolos and where I might be able to pick one up from.

Hope all that made sense!

I guess you are talking about the single locking terrible floyd copy bc rich used in the early 90s. i don't believe there anything made now to fit. the best thing is to keep an eye on ebay they pop up there once in a while.
the best thing is going to be fill and drill new post holes and put a better trem on it.

Re: Need new Floyd Rose for platinum ST

Thanks for the reply. I thought that might be the case but, well, you never know if you never ask. *gets out power tools*
