    Seen a few BC Rich fans around here so thought I'd share my newest find. 1981 BC Rich Eagle, a vintage handmade beauty! Maple neck and wings, rosewood stringers and a nice rosewood fretboard and head plate. The Bill Lawrence pickups sound incredible in this, hadn't tried them before but wow this guitar sounds incredible.
    Anyone else here got any vintage BC Richs?

    Neal Moser's preamp & classic BCR Wire Scheme.
    He probably did the nut & the fretwork on that one along with the setup.

    Indeed! Not one of Neals nuts on this one but that's not to say he didn't do everything else. You can't beat his set ups, had two others from him and they're always incredible

    @twguitar thanks for the enlightenment about all those switches. I'm always looking into some crazy wiring scheme... Those BCRs are way cool.

    I wish I could click "love" rather than "like". I once had an Eagle not unlike that, they are amazing guitars. So much fun fiddling with all the sound options!

    This is the kind of guitar that makes me wish BC Rich had kept it together. Congrats, she’s a beaut!

    Yeah it's a shame they went so hard on the imports, destroyed the brand imo. The Custom Shop is building some stunning guitars at the moment. There is always Neal Moser too who you just can't beat imo
