If you want a nj rich, look at this- http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...3776615253&rd=1

a usa handmade- here http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...3776385375&rd=1

mockingbird- http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...3776627247&rd=1

ouuu another- http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...3776565136&rd=1

If its old, or handmade, go for it. If it is a new nj, platinum or bronze, do not. Case Closed. Have a good day.

I have an old NJ Neck Thru Mockingbird and it rules. The pickups are stock bc richs and they are better than EMG hz's imo.

honestly i see nothing wrong with bc rich guitars and it sucks that everytime someone brings up the words "b.c. rich" people go hog crazy with insults. you people act like little kids. the guy asked if bc rich was worth it. a simple yes or no would've been fine. i own an nj beast and there is nothing wrong with it. i love the feel of it and it is an awesome and comfortable guitar to play with. of course the bronze series may not be very good, but they were made for people on a budget, and for beginners and shit. not to win any prizes or anything. yes whoever said platinum and above would be fine, thats true IMO. but if you cant afford one, and want a bc rich, then you'll probably end up getting a bronze series.

Most stock B.C's are hit or miss, just like Epiphones. Once you replace a few parts on the few good ones they work good however, but for the greater part most just junk. You must have got a good one because if you had a rotten one then you would hate them. I've played many POS in my time and most modern B.C's top them all.

and nice Kahler on that guitar, phil.

Edit: I would like to say that I love B.C. Rich guitar. I really do, but I'm saddened by what they have been making as of late. B.C's were the shit only a few years before they started making them out of cheap crap and changing part designs. I don't know why they did it but I still love the once great guitars they made; just in case anyone thinks I'm biased against B.C's. FYI

A beast, Comfortable?!?!?!?!? I fucking hate beasts because how UNcomfortable they are. My cousin has one, damn, when you're playing sitting down its fucking impossible not to get jabbed with a horn. Even while standing up you'll occasionally get poked.
I'd say its more safe to say NJ up is acceptable. I was playing a what appeared to be NJ Beast at a guitar center. It had the fastback heel, speed loader floyd, priced in the same area as a NJ. I looked on the back and it said MADE IN KOREA

It's all about preference dude. You think the beast is uncomfortable to play sitting down. In my opinion, the weird shaped bodies are the only kind of guitars i can play sitting down with. As strange as that may seem, thats how it is for me. If i cant be comfortable sitting down playing a guitar, then its not worth it in my opinion. I am not gonna be standing up all the time playing. I dont get poked at all, but thats just me. I love my nj beast, and i think b c rich guitars are hella worth it if you get the right ones. not all of em are top notch quality, but its all preference. if you like em, then you'll buy em, if you dont, then..you wont. simple as that. yeah about the "made in korea" mine says the same thing. but its an nj, and i love it to death, it plays incredibly well \m/ \m/

basic super strat shape is the best. You can play it like a V sitting down(just rest it on your left leg and elevate you left leg), and standing up, its just as perfect. Yes, its opinion but I just cant see how someone can say that the Beast is easier to play sitting down than a strat. I own a BC rich guitar, one of the body art ones, its pretty shotty. The tuners are shit, its really hard to get it in tune and have it stay in tune. I know yours has a floyd so that makes it different.
I've seen some REALLY bad looking pieces of ebony used for fretboards on some NJs - I'm not saying yours has a shitty one, but I saw this one.. It looked like freaking rosewood (which makes me wonder if its actually ebony, they say it is) and the grain was really odd.
But bottom line, I really dont like Bc Richs unless their custom, but if your gonna get a custom guitar, get a custom Ran ~$2500 cheaper
Anyways, You like the guitar, thats all that matters. I dont own a guitar of which I payed more than $300 dollars for (I own 9 guitar BTW). I've spent much more than that overall on my guitars fixing them up. Because thats what I like to do. But basically, You like that guitar now thats cool. Just, someday I'll bet that you wont be happy with it anymore.

You would have to know how I position the guitar while sitting down to understand my opinion. Honestly, i don't think i would ever get tired of this guitar. For me, it just plays too well and has a killer look IMO. The fret board on my guitar is quite nice, the wood looks great, and i know its not rosewood. Personally, the only brands i would buy are bc rich, and jackson. I like the unique body designs, but thats just me. I know a lot of you guys prefer the classic look and thats cool. but for me, the crazy looking guitars suit me better.

Seems you are really limiting yourself on what guitar you'll play..
And it also seems like you're buying guitars just because they look cool..
