Don't even think of B.C. rich unless it's a old one or a custom shop.

Yup. A guy I know has an 80's pro bich, beat up though needs new floyd and pu's... I think i might get it off him for $100. (he plays bass)

I can personally attest for this.

I own an NJ Warlock that I wish I had never purchased. Terrible electronics, sub-quality bridge, and woods that may as well be particle board. I only paid 300$, and it was still too much.

But today I have purchased a Schecter C-1 Classic over e-bay for 550$ :D

Soulinsane 2005-01-16 22:17

I hope that works better for you dude.

FF, gratz on the old B.C. dude. $100 is a deal if you know how to fix it up nice.

BLS 2005-01-16 22:21

You'll like that Schecter, Schecter makes some damn nice guitars. What pickups does your have?

I hope you get it. I would snag it in a second if I could. As long as everything is strait build wise (no warped neck) the guitar will be awsome!

FearFrost 2005-01-16 22:37

well the floyd can be fixed, and needs a few parts on the nut lock, pick-ups are messed up bad, feels ok neck wize, but needs to have some treatment done to the neck (it feels real dirty, maybe a sanding job would do it).

Soulinsane 2005-01-16 22:44

Steel wool works great but only if the pups are off or you are going to replace them. 000 steel wool will get the gunk out of the wood grain and polish the frets. It is long work but it works wonders. The dust from the wool will fuck electronics unless they are taped up good.

BLS 2005-01-16 22:50

A slong as the bodt and neck are in good condition than everything cna be easily replaced.

I'd jump on that deal so fast

Zombie Clown 2005-01-16 23:39

Schecter, dont they make the black jack guitars?

BLS 2005-01-16 23:47

yeh

Soulinsane 2005-01-17 00:10

They seem like a nice guitar to me too.

Dyldo 2005-01-17 01:20

If you get a B.C. Rich - Make sure like stated above that it's of an older model somewhere at or above Platinum and you'll be satisfied.

I'm assuming you're inquiring of the Schecter : Seymour Duncans. A '59 in the neck and a JB in the bridge, with coil-tapping capabilities.
