B.C rich is an American brand of acoustic and electric guitars founded by Bernard Chavez Rico. This company was first started to make electric guitars in the 1970s that are notable for their atypical body shapes. In the following decade BC Rich gained a boarder exposure with the popularity of heavy metal and it is often linked to the music scene. There are many designs of guitars found in market and some of this is odd designs. It was a stage favorite of guitarist, who plays the lead guitar work. Initially the pickups were Gibson’s, rewired as 4 conductors and potted, later Guild pickups were treated the same way. The seagull shape was uncomfortable for some to play due to the sharp upper and lower point that drug into the leg sitting down. It was redesigned several times including a smoother lower point and also with a junior version with simpler electronics and a pointless version which is quite rare. The BC Rich Mockingbird was designed by Johnny and it was made popular by Joe Perry of Aerosmith. The mockingbird model experiences a resurgence in the early 90’s through Gun N Roses lead guitarist slash after the played one on the Use Your Illusion world tour. The most popular of the BC Rich line is the BC Rich 10 string model.
The acrylic series guitars are made completely of acrylic and their bodies are transparent which makes the electronics inside viewable and the original run of this acrylic models featured a standard bolt-on maple neck with wood headstock but the later models are featured with an acrylic headstock, matching the same color as the body and it makes the guitar more attractive. In this series the neck is bolted inside the body to look like a neck-through but neck joint in this is still visible. This combines the elements of both bolts-on and neck-through design. Like Rickenbacker and Jackson, BC Rich used a neck-through body design in many of their instruments and it is also pioneered to the heel-less joint. In addition to that they use custom battery-powered active electronics- pickups and also tone controls inside the guitar. These were designed by Neal Moser and it helped with the bone crafted parts and many set ups in the custom shop and it also added feet on winged guitars which was one of Rich Bich designs. Their guitars come in a variety of shapes which are similar to electric guitars such as the fat bob, which has a body in the shape of Harley-Davidson gas tank. B.C. Rich have eventually settled up to create guitars for metal guitar players. New heavy metal guitars could be pointer death ax, or BC Rich could go conveniently-style guitars, which haven’t really corked out that well for B.C. Rich guitars. The BC Rich Warlock is both an electric guitar and also a bass guitar made by B.C. Rich. It features a distinct jagged shape and two hum bucker pickups.
