  • Why can't the plural of 'moose' be 'mooses'????
I'm considering buying a guitar from BCRich.com. I've heard from a friend of mine who bought one from them that he loves it. I have no idea about the process of ordering one, nor the cost (though I know that they don't come cheap :P). Does anyone know anything about the ordering process? If you do, please, share your wisdom. :) Oh, and I've looked on the BCRich website, and that doesn't help either. :'( Any suggestions on what kind of guitar to order or just general info about it all would be helpful. Thanks! :)

I was blessed in the fact that I have a B.C. Rich distributor just across the street from me, so I have access to King V's, Bichs, Beasts, & Warlocks (once I have the money of course ^_^;;;)

Unfortunately, I do not know what the steps are for ordering one, 'cept maybe going to your local music shop & asking them to get a few guitars from B.C. Rich.

As long as you show a real intent to purchase one, I am sure that they will try & get one in for you. :)

But anyway, I own a B.C. Rich Warlock (Bronze series, I believe.) It took me a little time to get set up (thanks to the tail-piece being fully adjustable & removable when you change strings x_x), but I really love the way the guitar plays/feels in my hands :D.

If you do go B.C. Rich, I'm positive that you will not be disappointed :)

But...I just hope that you are able to figure out how to get one ^_^;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

I talked to my friend who ordered a guitar from them, and he said that you have to contact the BCRich dealer nearest you, and set it all up w/ them. I'm gonna look into all that once I have the money. Speaking of which, how much did your Warlock cost? And do you know the general price range they go by?

I was lookin' at the site (BCRich.com) and I've found the guitar I want. The only problem is, the money. Here's a pic of it:
It's an NJ Warlock with a Floyd Rose tremolo system. It costs $900.00. So, I'm looking for a job lol; no, seriously. Earlier I went job hunting. I didn't get too much of anywhere, though... :'(

NEVER get a strait tail piece guitar from BC Rich. I made that mistake, and the intonation slips all the time on the B/high E. The nice thing is that the pinch harmonics come out BEAUTIFULLY compared to most other guitars (even better than a Jackson with EMGs, which I have personally played... oh man...). The taps come out very cleanly as well. Over all they're nice guitars, but there could be better.

By the way, you take the space between the V and you put it over your thigh so it's raised upward.

*gets so irritated watching people try to figure out how to play a flying V sitting down*

I play a BC Rich flying V... so.. yeah... I like the V because I'm more comfortable playing uprights.

A straight bridge... you know. It's a normal, unbending bridge, as opposed to a tremolo (wobbly tail piece), which comes in a couple of varieties. Get a Floyd-Rose tremolo and complain about how hard it is to change the strings, but enjoy the fact that you can do dive-bombs and stuff like that.

Oh, I can't believe it! I forgot to mention that, ironically, it comes with a  Floyd Rose bridge lol; it's ironic b/c i just remembered when i saw your comment lol; so i guess no worries there? is that the only thing you think i should watch out for? oh, and my friend said that the guitar he has (he has a Warlock) has built in distortion, and there's like a switch or something you can use to turn the distortion on and off; does anyone know if all the BCRich guitars come with built in distortion; i'm wondering about that

They don't, and he's probably full of shit and he doesn't know the difference between neck and bridge pickups. He's probably referring to the fact that they started packaging some of them with EMGs in the bridge pickup and some other pretty clean neck pickup in there along with it. I'm fairly sure he's just retarded, and if he isn't and they really have a built in overdrive (or less likely, distortion) in the pickups, then no, not all BC Rich guitars have that, because mine doesn't.

lol; he may be full of shit; as for not knowing the difference between bridge and neck pickups, i have no clue if he does or not; i'd assume so, because he's been playing for 8 or 9 years, and i'd hope he'd know the difference :P.

he could mean a "gain boost controller" wich overdrives the pickups further. The REAL (handmade, usa) KKV is equiped with those and theres some jacksons who got it to i think.

Okay, sit down with a guitar that has a tremolo. Grab the whammy bar (rod sticking out of the bottom bit where the strings are attached) and press it down until it touches the body of the guitar.

I've known what a dive bomb is, but I've never actually TRIED one before yesterday. :P And I was surprised at just how loose the strings got. But cool, nonetheless, though I wouldn't know what situations to use them in while playing. ???

Was talking to Radiczor. He didn't know what a dive-bomb was.

Heh.... I love Floyd-Rose tremolos. I played a 7 string with one of them, and I dive-bombed the B string on the 12th fret, then let off of the fret, and it stopped vibrating once it hit rock-bottom, then I released it and the sudden tension started the string up again, but it was the open B, and then I pulled the bar back and the guitar started squeeling. Kekekeke.... The guys in the shop shouldn't have given me a 7 string with a floyd-rose and an 80 watt amp. ^______^
