B.C. Rich WMD Warbeast Electric Guitar OnyxToday’s featured guitar is the B.C. Rich WMD Warbeast Electric Guitar Onyx. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The B.C. Rich WMD Warbeast features maple neck-through construction, a beveled nato mahogany body, and A Floyd Rose Original locking 7-string tremolo lets you execute the most subtle tremolo or wildest dive-bombing effects and return to perfect tuning every time. tremolo. With its Rockfield Fat Ass pickup in the bridge, Mafia pickup in the neck position, and aggressive red pinstripes, there is no mistaking the sonic damage you can inflict with this WMD.

Neck-Through Construction
Neck Through construction is used on the WMD Warbeast because it provides the best possible sustain, resonance, comfort and access to higher frets. Neck-through has long been considered the premium construction method for high-end guitars. This construction starts with a long piece (or pieces) of premium North American maple. That piece runs from the tip of the headstock to the strap button on the opposite end of the guitar. This means that the headstock, fingerboard, pickups and bridge all are mounted to this single sound foundation. Sonically it is a difference you can hear. The neck-through construction also allows deeper cutaways, providing comfort no bolt-on or set-neck could offer.

Rockfield Pickups – Mafia & Fat Ass
Bridge Pickups – Fat Ass
Aggressive in its own right, the Rockfield FAT ASS bridge pickup was designed for a specific group players in mind: those with crazy, super acrobatic playing styles. The ones at the gig that make everything look so effortless and easy. As you watch in amazement you say, “Man I need to practice” or, “That’s it, man, I quit!” This pickup’s custom designed bobbins house larger pole pieces that help transfer string vibration from pulls, bends and leads so the user gets less tonal drop off, better articulation and note definition. The Rockfield FAT ASS has a well balanced overall tone that is mean and bold with major sustain, huge bottom end and cutting mids and highs that jump out at you. Each note is full and rings true from this pickup while you take advantage of a look that is just plain mean and in your face.

Neck Pickups
The neck version of the Mafia pickup is just as full sounding as the bridge position, without taking away from what has already been accomplished. Very minor modifications to the overall design and design concept of this pickup gives it punchy, bold tone with the same aggressive characteristics as the bridge version. A tad brighter with a little less output really takes this pickup into the smooth and warm realm of the tonal spectrum. All while maintaining that balanced bite and in your face aggressive tone that the mafia is known for!

Flat Top
The WMD Warbeast is constructed with a flat top. The flat top styling gives a bold and pristine look to the edge of the instrument’s shape. The binding on a flat top finishes off the edge cleanly and gives a sleek and clean look to the instrument.

You can pick up the B.C. Rich WMD Warbeast Electric Guitar Onyx at Musician’s Friend for $699.99.

B.C. Rich Ironbird Pro Electric Guitar Spalted Ebony FretboardToday’s featured guitar is the B.C. Rich Ironbird Pro Electric Guitar Spalted Ebony Fretboard. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The B.C. Rich Ironbird Pro Electric Guitar looks amazing with its Onyx finish and offers professional features such as classic B.C. silver painted bevels, neck-through construction and an active EMG-81 humbucker. The Ironbird Pro guitar has the fire-power needed to heat up any stage.

Introduced in 1983, the Ironbird’s angular lines and striking appearance have earned many loyal followers throughout the years. This guitar combines all the professional you’ve come to expect from B.C. Rich, such as neck-through design, 24-5/8″ scale length, an EMG-81 pickup, Grover tuners and Floyd Rose Original tremolo.

B.C. Rich is known as one of the pioneers in Neck Through construction. They utilize it on many of their guitars, because it provides the best possible sustain, resonance, comfort and access to higher frets. Neck-through has long been considered the premium construction method for high-end guitars. This construction starts with premium maple or mahogany and runs from the tip of the headstock to the end of the guitar. This means that the headstock, fingerboard, pickups and bridge all are mounted to this single sound foundation. Sonically it is a difference you can hear.

Using a ceramic magnet, the EMG-81 active humbucker is a high-output pickup designed especially for the lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you’re playing power rock and roll, or overdriving your amp, there’s a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you’re looking for exceptional qualities in a rock pickup, the EMG-81 is the one.

Most of B.C. Rich body styles employ a beveled edge around the shape. In many ways bevels on a top are similar to facets on a cut stone. They catch the light and reflect at different angles giving the instrument more of a three dimensional look. Some of the B.C. Rich top bevels are extreme and wide while others are subtle and narrow. Occasionally the shape of the instrument is accented by painting the bevels a contrasting color.

Other appointments on this awesome shredder include C neck shape, 24 jumbo frets, 1-11/16″ nut width, 12″ radius, Floyd Rose Original bridge, Grover tuners, and a gloss finish.

B.C. Rich ASM Pro Electric Guitar Black Cherry BurstToday’s featured guitar is the B.C. Rich ASM Pro Electric Guitar Black Cherry Burst. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The B.C. Rich ASM Pro is an electric guitar with EMG pickups, a Floyd Rose Original tremolo and neck-through construction. The ASM Pro is one serious professional level guitar! Other great features include Grover tuners and an ebony fretboard.

Neck-Through Construction

B.C. Rich is known as one of the pioneers in neck through construction. They use it on many of their guitars, because it provides the best possible sustain, resonance, comfort and access to higher frets. Neck-through has long been considered the premium construction method for high-end guitars. This construction starts with a long piece (or pieces) of premium North American maple. That piece runs from the tip of the headstock to the strap button on the opposite end of the guitar. This means that the headstock, fingerboard, pickups and bridge all are mounted to this single sound foundation. Sonically it is a difference you can hear. The neck-through construction also allows more of the body and neck to be cut away at the neck joint, which provides comfort no bolt-on or set-neck could offer. You will find the neck through feature on all top of the line B.C. Rich models.

EMG-81 (bridge position)

The EMG-81 is a high output pickup designed especially for the lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you’re playing power rock and roll, or overdriving your amp, there’s a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you’re looking for exceptional qualities in a rock pickup, the EMG-81 is the one.

EMG-85 (neck position)

Although the EMG-85 has more measurable output than the 81, its frequency response and string interface are different. The 85 uses two Alnico magnet loaded coils with a wide aperture to maintain a beefy low end and a fatter top end. Because of a more natural tone, it works great as a rhythm and blues pickup because it has loads of output but isn’t muddy.

The Assassin was introduced in 1986. It was a double cutaway that was a departure for the odd shaped models that B.C. Rich was known for up until that time. In 1986, there were other double cutaways that B.C. Rich began making with various headstocks, pickup configurations, controls and finishes. The ASM model was one of these double cutaways but was introduced much later. There was an ASM 1 and ASM 2, with slightly different shapes and point shapes, but the more pointed and sleek model eventually settled in as the standard ASM shape. The Outlaw originally had holes drilled in the upper bout, but later models were more traditional looking, they were mostly bolt on necks like most of the double cutaway B.C. Rich guitars.

Bolt-on Construction
The Kerry King V Electric Guitar uses a classic Bolt-on construction. The maple neck is bolted on with 4 screws to the body. This construction offers some added flexibility in the instruments adjustment and provides the option to change the neck in the future.

B.C. Rich BDSM Pickups
B.C. Rich designed their BDSM humbucking pickups to provide a solid sound and to be durable while delivering high output. BDSM stands for Broad Dynamic Sonically Matched. That simply means the pickup is designed to reproduce a wide range of frequencies accurately (broad dynamic). Then they are tested and matched in pairs (neck and bridge) by their inherent individual and signature tonal and output characteristics to give a solidly balanced tone (sonically matched).

Beveled Top
The Kerry King V Electric Guitar employs a beveled edge around the shape. In many ways, bevels on a top are similar to facets on a cut stone. They catch the light and reflect at different angles giving the instrument more of a three dimensional look.

B.C. Rich Mockingbird Archtop Electric Guitar Antique Vintage Natural Ebony FretboardToday’s featured guitar is the B.C. Rich Mockingbird Archtop Electric Guitar Antique Vintage Natural Ebony Fretboard. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The B.C. Rich Mockingbird Archtop Electric Guitar boasts a strong and solid mahogany body and neck, neck-thru construction, ebony fretboard with 24 jumbo frets, Rockfield pickups, Tune-o-matic-style bridge, and that killer archtop body design.

The use of a ceramic magnet gives the Rockfield humbucking pickups extra power due to the increased magnetic field that they provide. This feature makes the Mafia pickups produce a hotter and thicker tone that’s really aggressive and full. The increased low end and thick mids and in your face highs is what rock and roll was built on. Balanced and full of sustain this pickup is a great representation of its namesake, a truly intimidating killer.

The Tune-o-matic-style bridge consists of 2 adjustable posts that are screwed into the guitar body and a bar between these posts. The bar has 6 saddles, one per string. Each string sits astride a saddle and the saddle thus “marks” the end of the vibrating string. Each saddle can be adjusted (moved back and forward) with a screw to control intonation.
