Potentially Rare Guitar, please appraise.

1983 Black B.C. Rich Bich, 24 fret custom neck, N.J. series, seymour
duncan humbuckers in both bridge and neck, R insignia on the back of each tuning peg. And the thing that makes me think it's rare, The headstock is similar to that of the one that has an R at the top,
but mine has the whole word rich vertically, the B and C on either side, and the N.J. Series thingy below that. I will post a picture soon.

Hey red_player,

The logo you describe is the distinguishing feature of the early 80's Japanese produced N.J. series Rich's. I don't know that they are particularly rare but they were only produced in Japan for a couple of years before production switched to Korea. They are well made guitars built to the same specs as their American made counterparts. I've got an 83 Wave that is cool looking and plays great. If you want to see pixs of all the 83 N.J. models check the catalog section of VintAxe.com. Value is probably somewhere between $650-$850, maybe more with a motivated buyer. sb

Hey SB, Is that american or canadian currency?

I'm thinking about U.S. dollars. Of course, condition and demand will ultimately determine the guitar's current worth. SB
