Founded by Bernardo Chavez Rico in 1969, B. C. Rich guitars have been played by some of the top names in the business (including Slash, Nikki Sixx, and Paul Gilbert) due to their original body designs and smooth-playing action.
Currently, B. C. Rich makes over a dozen different models (including the Beast, Bich, Eagle, Gunslinger, Mockingbird, Outlaw, Stealth, and Warlock), each one a testimony to their “rich” heritage. In addition to their radical body styles, B. C. Rich guitars are known for their fast necks and rich sustain. While a lot has changed with the company over the past few years, their new models have received rave reviews and renewed interest.
Current B. C. Rich guitars are offered at a price point that makes them affordable for a wide range of players, yet the company refuses to compromise on quality. You’ll find such quality hardware as Dimarzio and EMG pickups and Original Floyd Rose Tremolo bridges on current guitars. You’ll also see a wide variety of construction techniques, including bolt-on, set-neck, and neck-through construction. From the inexpensive Korean imports to the B. C. Rich Handcrafted series, there’s truly a guitar for every player and every budget.
