I've always loved this brand and shape. My first guitar was B.C. Rich many years ago. I've since played many different brands and hadn't thought of them for many years. I purchased this guitar on sale, but will honestly admit that I would pay full price if I had to replace it. The guitar is gorgeous, flawless and plays ultra fast and smooth. I've never received a guitar this flawless, I couldn't believe it! I could see some players finding the tone a bit thin, perhaps, but I enjoy it. All in all this guitar offers amazing value and I can't get over how beautiful and easy to play it is. Tremendous value based on my personal experience. Thank you Long and McQuade for packing it so well and shipping it out promptly. I'm thrilled with this purchase!

This guitar is made in China but then again most guitars in this price range are. The pick-up's are a bit on the sharp side(bright) and maybe a bit mellow, but they are o.k for now as they have enough output for pinches and what not and the coil splitting is also handy to have, the guitar sounds good and cuts through the mix decently. The finish is great and the guitar looks great too. The machine heads are not the best and I replaced the machine heads with some Grovers and it stays in tune perfectly. I didn't like the nut and when I switched the tuners I also installed a graph-tech nut, I like it much better. Overall the guitar is a nice player: fast and smooth. I noticed that players with larger hands might have a tougher time with these since they seem a bit smaller than normal. I got mine for $499 regular $750 and at this price point even with the $150 I spent up grading the hardware I came out ahead. Next step the pick ups. JH EMG's.... I gave the high value rating because of the sale.

The new BC Rich guitars are extremely well made. Mine is from 2016. The top is incredible. Fit and finish is top notch. Setup was great out of the box. Pickup have a coil split feature for single coil sounds. Value for the $ is VERY good. I currently own multiple Core Series PRS and Fender electric guitars, and this BC Rich fits in with no issues. I would like a touch more output from the pickups, but that can be easily compensated for with the amp and/or pedal gain.
