Alex Webster uses Modulus Q5's. He used a Spector to record the Wretched Spawn.
Modulus can work for metal especially if you go for the EMG's versus the Bartolinis. But they cost about $1200 to $1500 used which isn't really close to the BC Rich you were talking about.
Go for an LTD or a P-bass. There might be some decent used Ibanezes for that price.
The Rogues are cheap for a reason.

I was looking at a Corvette 5 string with active pick ups and was sort of confused. It had 4 knobs instead of five. Usually you have
Volume
Tone
Low
Mid
Treble
And something to switch between pickups

Does this one have no mid? I couldn't figure it out.

I do play a Modulus Q4, since 3 or 4 years, and i just can tell you that I'm still veryvery happy with it!!!!yes of course it's not as inexpensive as another but the quality and sound is great!
I'm in a metalband, but this bass goes for everything I'm playing funk, jazz, rock.......

I'd check out the Ibanez BTB series they are great. The new ones have a normal 34" scale, the other models have a 35" one, and the bridge on them is pretty unique you'd have to see it to know what I mean. But if you have small hands they aren't for you due to the wide spacing. Mine is great I have the BTB405QM.

The bc rich's balance problem is due to where the strap is located just relocate it on the tip like every other guitar, it's easy, if you dare to work with wood and a drill that is.

Talking Basses

Dont get a bc rich dude, yes they look cool and yes they 'scream' metal but they arnt worth the cash. youd be better saving the cash and getting a beter bass. i have many a bass. i personally can say that the esp F series are great. wether its a four or five (i play 5) they are good basses and worth the cash. if u want to try something different then make your own custon.

i recently made my own bass. its a spector body/electronics a fretless modulus neck and EMG extended pickups. the other little bits are basic.

but ye spend that little bit mor and get a much better bass
