        Comments about B.C. Rich WMD Widow Electric Bass Guitar:

        Let me preface this entire review by stating that I am primarily a guitar player. I played bass briefly in the late '60's while keyboards before moving on to guitars. I have played bass since then on a limited basis, generally for those tracks on my own home recordings (using a Gibson EB-3).

        The shop I frequent was going out of business. Among the last purchases I made was this axe. It was an impulse buy just because my only bass was an old Gibson I had since maybe 1968. I tried it, strapless and unamplified, in the store at their final clearance, and it seemed punchy, comfortable, and interesting. The price was half of the market price (the price here), so I had to pull the trigger.

        At home, I was even more pleased. The neck and fingerboard are as comfortable as butter for me. The pickups are quite responsive and the tone great. Seems to be a much better instrument than the retail price suggests.

        The look is really cool but of very limited appeal and suitability perhaps. It is essentially a black widow spider. That would be superb for a metal act, but would more than arguably be out of place in a lounge jazz combo, even if the sound would work. Because of its custom shape, standard cases are not great fits. Looks like I will have to make my own coffin case (a fun project of its own) since those commercial ones don't seem to be available anywhere nowadays.

        I have noted a little fret buz, but that could be entirely attributable to me being a guitar player and needing to get acclimated again to the electric bass.

        I'd give this 5 stars, but there are limitations for this,but is a great axe for the price out there. Try one for yourself.

              The sound that comes out of this guitar is amazing. You won't be sorry if you buy.

              Comments about B.C. Rich WMD Widow Electric Bass Guitar:

              This is a beautiful guitar with a great feel to the fret board. It is well made and looks awesome. The four pick-ups enable any player to find a unique sound. BC is a trusted name among many pro musicians and this one does not disappoint. The unique shape will have people talking and will be remembered.
              The only complaint I have is that MF does not know how to pack a guitar that does not come with a gig bag or case. The first one arrived damaged due to very insufficient packing. The second one arrived with the same exact packing as the first poorly packed guitar but by some miracle it survived UPS' punt pass and kick style of package handling and MF's poor packing job. But the guitar is sweet. The Widow has venom.
