Yes, I am certainly one given to modifying an instrument, but I can't honestly think of anything better to install on this guitar.

B.C. Rich has been taking it up the ass lately around these forums ...

And rightfully so.

I never could understand why people are generally unhappy with B.C. Rich Guitars.

My first guitar was a Warlock, Bronze Series. I loved it so much. Unfortunately, it also was smashed to bits in a car accident on the way to a practice.

With the money from that car accident, I got another Warlock This time Platinum.

They're not bad at all, I like how they feel and how they look.

The problem in the new B.C's are not the electronics. They can be easily replaced. The problem is in the bridges. They suck and are very herd to replace, 'cuase they use only the ones that are made for B.C and they require major mods to exchange them. The Custom shops can be made with and bridge though.

That is the major problem, among others.

The feel like fucking toys..
And their tuners (atleast the one on the platinum series) fucking suck. Its hard to get it in tune, and this is coming from a floyd man.

I bought a BC Rich a couple months ago, it was a KKV Signature series (not the starter) the pickups sucked, im not sure what the wood is but its definately not made for passive pickups. the neck was horrible and really slows you down (it was glossy) the floyd rose wasnt too great either it would still go out of tune a lot. plus other problems that came from the store I got it at.

in order to make that guitar good I might as well have built it from the ground up my self.


my 100 dollar ESP LTD > 400-500 dollar B.C Rich

I have been asked to clearify why the nu-B.C. Rich's are not good guitars. There are lots of reasons that I can list but I will list one and then someone else that knows list another.

Unstable building materials = the bridge post will lean forword in a short time and ruin the whole guitar.

Terrible pickups

EDIT:shit, saw soul already mentioned that. I guess alll around terrible value for a baseline model. If you have the money to throw around for a custom now-adays.......(endorsers.....and millionares....lol) I would get one. Otherwise, RAN IT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AMEN!!!

The bridge gives my old warlock alot of shit.

Things that found out over time:

The nut is not flush with the neck/head stock (also is made for .09's ONLY), also brung it back to store owner day after xmas, he said it was the right one, and took it to the shop to see, they said yes, a factory defect, and would not do shit all about it.
the horns break toooooooooooo easy (sitting in a hard case (walk out of a car), it dropps about 1 foot, and open it up... 1/2 a horn is off)
ALOT of problems with the tuners
pick-ups are BAD
Neck feels like a peace of shit


Thats all i can think of right now, but there is ALOT more.
