Exclamation pro-"bc rich" thread

after reading through a lot of your threads
i can definitely say that most of you are contra-bcrich(-guitars)
even if they never played on one

well i have to say that i just bought a "bc rich warlock pro" for 500€
and i am very satisfied with it

my friend bought himself a ibanez sz320 for about the same and we both agree that the bcrich is more fun to play

i tried a lot of other guitars
i lost hours in shops to try any kinds of
ibanez (especially rg-series), jacksons, emp's and many others

and finally i have to say that the warlock pro offered most for that amount of money:
it's really awesome to play; the double humbuckers sound best and everything is quite fine

sure not everybody likes its look but i cant find any other reasons why someone should like (to play) it

ripp3r

ps: happy new year

Just a thought...do you live in London? I was in London this summer and there is this mega guitar store in the basement of a Virgin Records in London. Killer stuff...got to play a flying V for once. Good stuff.

The Beast has got to be one of the stupidest designs ever. No matter what you're going to get jabbed with one of its horns when playing.

[get jabbed]
they only two where you can jab yourself is the ironbird and the beast
you're right
i own the warlock and the only thing that can happen is that you jab others
but not yourself; its also very comfortable to play while sitting

[pro-bono]
pro what?

"pro bono" is lawyerspeak for legal work done for free as a public service. If BCR was giving guitars away in the 80s, I sure as hell didn't see them and wish I had! I think the fellow who used "pro bono" in his sentence must have used it in some context that only he knows!

To the guy who bought the BCR- Who CARES what anyone else says about your choice of guitar? You gotta get the guitar that works for YOU and fuck all else. I only play Hamers, and nobody else seems to give a shit about them. Fine by me- keeps the price of used Hamers low and all the more of them for ME!

No I live in the USA. I wouldn't mind living in London though except that exchange rates makes everything 2x more expensive.

@ wyldbil

first thanks for the explanation and you are of course right that it should have no meaning what the others say
and i do not care
i read those anti-bcrich-threads already before buying one myself but i then wondered what all those people really dislike at these guitars
i think it's a great guitar and i wouldn't change...


@ guitar_demon

very good to quote without knowing the meaning^^


@ TheDreadfulHoroscope

another pro-bcr-one :-))


@ rapeandruin

well in europe prices are good at the moment because €uro is more worth dollar
but it would be even better without taxes and import costs

I love my neck-thru mockingbird, I loved it even more once I threw a set of seymour duncan invaders in there. B.C. Rich is one of my favorite guitar companies, I just don't like any of the import models. An orignal hesperia factory B.C. rich will make you shit your pants if you play it. The action is like warm butter, smooth and satysfying.

What do I mean?

BC Rich Sucks ass, unless you pump out +$1,000 US for a custom one.

My problem with BC rich, I own one, and the damn thing is not good, the wood sucks, chips like a mother fucker, plays like a fender, and I had to bring it to a shop 3 times. All the ones I have played are poorly built.

Whats a real mans guitar?

thats my guitar, now other good guitars would be an ibanez (god knows what trash you picked up that was an RG for $200... maybe play a REAL RG), Jackson, Schecter, Gibson, or something else with class.

Ibanez shits all over the standard series BCR! My 2620QM is a good example ! But the BC Custom Shop is another story.

I own an NJ Warlock and I wish now that I had never purchased it, even if I paid only 300$ for its unplayed mint condition. Now I'm furiously scraping together the requisite funds to invest in a Schecter C-1 Classic, which will undoubtedly be a much finer instrument.

The thing sounds like cardboard to me. I'm going to completely dismantle the instrument and sell the pickups/faux Floyd Rose/tuners on E-bay for a little extra cash. I don't know what I'll do with the actual woods ... possibly make a coffee table or something.
