Hey guys

Thanks for this thread! I always wondered where the serial # was on my faithful old Warlock... now I'm hoping someone could help me date it & possibly find out what kind of wood it was made of.

It's an old Platinum series Warlock with the reverse pointed 6-in-line headstock (slant up rather than down). I know it was made in Korea because the headstock still bears the sticker that says so. The serial # is 5587. No... no numbers are missing.... it's just that old.

Can anyone help me out?

dating a bc rich ironbird

I just had a bc rich ironbird version 1 given to me and i have the year narrowed down to 84 or 85. 84 was the first year they were built over seas then shiped back for assembly according to one site I was at. The U in the serial # is suppose to stand for USA.

SN# U0420

The other #'s don't make sense to me????

Close, the "U" stands for U.S.Series, which, as per usual with BCR's was totally misleading, the guitar was built in Japan and shipped to the U.S.A. for final assembly and paint

They didn't last long so your year guess is correct

Any pictures of this Ironbird?

Lorne, you should start a 'dollar per question' service for dating Riches.

Leave no stone unturned until I'm done.

I really hate to resurrect an old thread, but I just bought an N.J. Series Warlock off of my bassist and we're sitting in my room trying to figure out how old it is. the only number which we're assuming is the serial number is 604045 on the Neck plate. It says L.A. California USA

Pics Very much related:








(With it's twin brother :P)

Again, I'm really sorry to bring up an old topic, but that one link on how to date a B.C. Rich didn't help D:

i have an old warlock that i cant figure out either....platinum series, b/o, serial on the neck plate says 5449(not S449, which someone suggested to me might have made it a first run of "special" models, but i double checked and its definately a 5)......might be a custom job tho, seeing as the bridge is an old kahler spyder locking trem...any ideas? also, when i put it next to a newer bronze series, the body is visibly more compact/smaller, but not by much.

if any of you guys are trying to date a platinum, nj series, bronze series or any other "series" guitars its really not a huge deal what year it was. Most bc rich collectors only really care about the year range for USA instruments. And many times USA instruments are the only ones you can make anything out of the serial number.
