Question Dating a BC Rich by serial

I have been trying to find out what year my BC Rich was made in, as I got it extremely cheap when it was on sale at a 2nd hand shop down here a few years ago.

Its a platinum edition warlock, with a floyd rose trem and a normal headstock (Not one of those pointy devil ones).
I read up on how to do it, but I still cant date my serial.
I read this: Dating Your B.C. Rich Guitar | Dolphin Music
And my serial is 19651. I know its definitely before 2000, but no idea when. 1999 Maybe?

Help would be appreciated!

according to that link, it looks like a 2001?

If you list your gear in your signature, you're a prick.

Yeah maybe.
The 19 in the serial confused me a little.

I mainly want to know because I am selling it to buy a Schecter 7 string. So I just need all the info I can get on it


Edit:
"In the year 2000, they changed to the letters "BO" (Bolt On) and three digits (B0XXX)"
Cant be a 2001 by the sounds of that, because I have a Bolt on neck

yeah, i dunno man. B.C. Rich's serial numbers can be a little screwy sometimes. not surprising considering how many times the company has changed hands. Ed Roman didn't help things either when Class Axe went belly up and he bought all their remaining inventory, including a .... load of bodies and necks and assembling and finishing them himself and passing them off as "real" B.C. Richs


my B.C. Rich Wrath USA is #C920178

which leads me to believe it was the 178th made in '92 . but who knows

Indeed. So this thread isn't about taking a virgin out on the town?

No luck on the BC Rich forum page so sorry for a misplaced post...
Anyone here know how I can date a US ST3 bass?
the serial is B2918 but I can't find anything that even resembles that sequence on any of the general serial info pages. They seem to mainly address the NJ's and even platinums.

The ravages of age (and a head injury) has gotten the best of me and I can't remember exactly what year I bought my BC Rich Platinum Series Warlock. Early 90s, maybe 92 or 93. My serial number doesn't match anything on that site. Definitely bolted on. This number is engraved on the plate:
18133

Any help is greatly appreciated.
