    Can anyone help me try to find out information about my guitar. I have a GC Rich not BC. I have been asking Q’s on the net but nobody believes me. I can send a picture as well as the serial numbers. I keep hearing there is no such thing. If that is so, how come this has been in my family for many years? Any help would be appreciated. Only serious comments please. Thank-you for any help you can give me.

      Hi,I have a GC RICH acoustic guitar 6 string cut-away style nice spruce top amber tone birds-eye maple sides and back with a centre stripe and oval sound hole.All in all a real quality guitar.I got it here in Canada from a shop that was closing out back in 1982,the guy told me that the ”GC” was a member of the Rich family maybe a cousin that was also making guitars,I’ve been looking on the net every now and then to see about it.Anyway it was listed at $300.00,I got him to throw in a case and got the whole works for $250.00 it was a good deal,because I’ve had lots of fun with it over the years it plays sweet,easy and a nice voice and tone.I still have it and wouldn’t sell it for $500.00 if it came up.That’s all I can tell you but if you got one keep it ,don’t sell it cheap,they’ll only be harder to find down the road. jb

        i have owned my GC rich acoustic now for 40 years. its 1980, birds eye maple back and sides, mahogany neck, rosewood fingerborard, spruce top. i two would like some info on wear it was made . its very well made and high end woods. the birds eye is a orange transparent colour. looks 3d. i herd there was a greg rich worked for bc rich , was a brother. if the g in gc rich is from the brother of bc rich bernardo c rico, be pretty rare indeed, i think it was made in maybe the fugigan factory in japan , who specialized in copies of high end guitars back in the day. hope any of this helps. stay cool.

Hey I have been researching this too. To no avail. I have a 1969 RC rich. If you find anything can you let me know and visa versa. Thanks
