    It seems that quality seven strings have been rare in this area in the B.C. Rich market, so after all these years, I did get an Ibanez seven string. I tried to at least carry the pointy guitar legacy and get a model that had many of the hardware options that my old USA Warlock had.

    Anyone know if the B.C. Rich custom shop is even still in operation?

    I was going to move in another and I needed cash so this was one of the two guitars I had to sell. Two things I didn't like, the smaller V angle and the too much abalone. It actually looked a lot better on this guitar than on LTD's and Schecters but eventually it started to bug me a bit. Nice sounding guitar. One thing I don't understand is why they changed the headstock. I mean this is a lot better than the current one or the other tacky horned ones:

    Honestly if I could have kept it, I would.

    They are still in operation. One of the forum members on the B.C. Rich players forum ordered/received a U.S. custom shop Widow guitar from them on March of this year. Here's a pic of the guitar that he got. :cool:

    Hey I have an 80's platinum warlock that I want to change pups on and add a preamp to (without routing, if possible) what pups will fit? Did bc rich originally use dimarzios in the guitars and the basses? It currently has EMG select in it. Also does anyone have bc rich basses for sale? I'm looking for point nj ironbird w/ a P pup and a platinum warlock bass, a wave would RULE! And a 90's USA Mockingbird.

    Hail the mighty dead!

    Someday I'll find the Warlock of my dreams (the ones I've been able to lay hands on have all been the lower-end cheapies). Until then, my only BC Rich is my Schuldiner Stealth.

    You guys have NO idea how bad I want these two guitars. I've only ever seen one of the Ironbird Limiteds offered for sale, and the NJ Deluxe Jr. V's with the reversed headstock always seem to me listed in the $900-$1000 range, which is well outta Sniper's price range

    I haven't held or played a whole lot of fancy guitars in shops and things, but I have played a few, and some really nice ones too. But honestly the stealth is the best guitar i've ever played. It's small body is just perfect for me, that neck is slick and beautiful and so easy to get around. There's just no better guitar that i've ever played. Love the light weight feel of it. Great for sitting down it fits perfectly around my leg. Only con is the huge neck dive for me. Not sure how to fix that. I'm a small guy with small hands. Love small bodied guitars. Took a while to dial in a great tone and even made a thread about it. But tone is subjective, but once I found it it was great pickup wise, too.

    Gone now, but what a guitar. This was my JR V Icon, the Pat O'brien (Cannibal Corpse) signature model.

    Yeah the neck dive is probably the one thing that keeps it as my "playing at home" guitar. I took it to practice a few weeks ago because I broke a string on my Explorer while packing it up, and got really annoyed at having it dive when I let go of the neck. Sucks, because it is otherwise a fantastic guitar -- build quality is top-notch, it feels great, and the X2N is a perfect match.

    I wish someone knew of a way to fix that neck dive.

    Here's my BC Rich Gunslinger sweatshop special. Got it used for $250. Once I set it up and slapped in a Dimarzio Evolution, this sucker is an absolute beast.
    Behind it is my Washburn PXS297FR. A 7-string, 29 fret lord of all things excessive. :lol:

    Question for bc rich enthusiasts!

    I have been scoping the market for a BC Rich Warlock USA. Unfortunately, neither ebay or most websites seem to have any on sale. Precisely I am looking for something like this:



    The man using it is Morean. Anyway, I am looking for a USA made warlock of the same kind. Anyone have any info as to where these can be obtained?

    I updated mine quite a bit. Got rid of the FRS, and installed an OFR, added a neck single coil, and scalloped the last 4 frets halfway.
