OVERVIEW

Wicked looks, wicked sound, sweet price.

The B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar sounds great and looks even better. This affordable Warlock features an agathis body, dual humbuckers, all chrome hardware, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, and the popular Warlock body design that takes center stage as soon as you strap it on.

Bolt-on Construction

Classic bolt-on construction with 4 screws to the body offers added flexibility in the instrument's 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. Which simply means that 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
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.

this was my first electric guitar when i upgraded from my acoustic. the acoustic just wasnt workin fer the metal i play. so i bought this. it looked metal. i didnt know a thing about electrics. didnt know what to look fer, what was good, what was bad, nothin. i just knew it looked cool. i picked it up fer $130 at a pawn shop and i think its worth what i paid. people complain about that cheap humbuckers that are in it but on my line 6 amp and even my roland 4x12, if you dial the settings in right, the pickups will have you soundin like a pro. i would have liked a floyd rose and a neck through construction, but its the cheaper series. you cant expect all that. im lookin to go out and but a B.C. Rich WMD Warbeast, which is like my dream guitar. but this is definitely a great guiatr fer starters. the action is decent, as is the sustain. the neck is amazing. theres no fade out even on the biggest of bends, and the guiatr stays in tune really well. doesnt break many strings either. ive only had to change the strings once on this guitar. so if yer just startin out, buy it. it wont disappoint.

If you only read one review, read this one. I know what I am talking about. When I started out playing the most important thing was how it looked. Now that I have experiance under my belt, here is my outlook: good deal. I have beaten the sh*t out of it and it still works (I do believethat the newer design is somewhat less durable). The tone is mediocre at best, but come on! Real rockers troop through it! To adjust the output you can raise or lower the humbuckers (which are really raw-sounding. If you put the 'bucks high enough you can achieve death metal status). But remember this--after four years, even if you take real good care of it, IT WILL FALL APART (and, in cold weather, the neck will bow. Sorry, you eskimos). My opinion is that it is a very good deal but not reliable enough after year one to depend on it (without a backup) for concerts or shows. I recommend lowering one bucker and raising the other, and finding an amp with a vast palette of effects if you own it.

Epic

By Robbie Austin

from WIlmington, NC

Comments about B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar:

I couldn't get it to stay in tune worth a crap when I first got it, but eventually, I put a set of baritone strings on and tuned it to C# standard (like Between the Buried and Me) and it stays in tune perfectly now. Plus, the pups are really great at reproducing the low end.

I do wish it had more features (locking tuners, coil-tapping, Floyd Rose, etc) but for the price..you really can't go wrong with this guitar as long as it looks the part you want!
This is a pretty run-of-the-mill guitar. 2 HBs, non-locking tuners, single volume, single tone and a 3-way switch..nothing too fancy as far as features go.
This little devil has held up to pretty much anything I can throw at her.
It's definitely a great guitar for the money! The pups sound great and it's a breeze to play. Plus it commands attention when you step onto stage! I do highly recommend a low tuning though (drop C or lower) as heavier gauge strings seem to work better and you can take full advantage of the lower frequency range of the pups.

Heavy Meatl machine on a budget

By Chevy808

from Kula, Maui HI

Comments about B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar from this site about 4 years ago. I can tell you, its an excellent guitar for a cheap price. Everything about this guitar is great, including the tone. any metalhead and rocker will LOVE this! Its also pretty durable (all my equipment gets abused) and the body style is a definite eye-catcher! Overall, one of the best guitars I've ever owned!

Some Kind of Monster

By Dethsoul

from Panorama City, CA

See all my reviews

Comments about B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar:

I know my reviews may look harsh, but i am trying to be honest. The guitar body is made of agathis wood, which is a fairly cheap wood. And is why i gave it a 3.5 for features. Now, i own this baby. And i have made it into a real beast. I swapped the pickups for Dimarzios. A PAF Pro in the neck and Super Distortion in the bridge. Now my guitar sounds just as mean if not more impressive than its deadly looks. It's an affordable guitar; not necessarily cheap. I play this on clean and distorted (with Ernie Ball Pure Nickel Slinkies) through a 15watt Crate and Peavy Blazer 158. Both are tube (or at least transtube). This guitar has taken a LOT of abuse since i don't own a case for it, and it just won't quit. It is a SOLID guitar, pretty decent for the money. I forgot to mention that this was my first guitar, i got it when i started playing guitar. Therefor, it is an excellent beginner guitar that's not pathetic nor pricey. This is my "go to" guitar, i play it more often than my Avenger with Seymour Duncan Pickups. I will never get rid of this guitar.

Comments about B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar:

Apart from the neck, it's a pretty good guitar.
Decent guitar. has all the necessities. A pain in the arse to re-string, but still decent.
Mines from 8 years ago... the neck is falling off. Seriously. Theres a big gap in between the neck and the body.

Comments about B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar:

It allows for maximum heavy metal power, it is the signature guitar of Mick from slipknot...and his heavy gothic attitude shines through to the spirit of the guitar.

Comments about B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar:

ok I'm 13. Yeah this thing is so awesome, I played it for a while and I got addicted to the cool sounds this thing produced. My pedals really bring the best out of this thing. This guitar has unlimited potential. The pickups rock out loud and never let you down. I played a song at school and it played so well I had 0 issues. Super reliable. When I played with my fender it blew on me. This warlock will cast a spell on you.

Great Axe!

By jon9110

from fisher

Comments about B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar:

This is a great axe, a regular shred machine. Its amazing for low-end tone and palm muted metal riffs, but theirs no high-end tone. The neck is very smooth playing and fast. Its probably also one of the best looking guitars out there. It screams "look at me!". One of its only drawbacks is its too heavy. A great first guitar..buy this instead of something cheap like a squier, especially for metalheads.

This is a great guitar

By Metalbass13

Comments about B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar:

After many jam sesions with this guitar, I have come to find that it's one of the best that I have ever played. The sound is clean and it's just perfect! Just a suggestion, this guitar is best played on a full stack to get the best sound.

Who needs one of these?

By VictimofBCRich

Comments about B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar:

I owned one of these for about two months. I finally had to give in to that little, ever growing voice in my head. "Why in the heck did you buy this piece of crap?" Pickups? Junk. All of the money you pay for this guitar is the labor to make it the crazy shape it is. Blech! Don't even try playing this sitting down. Do not buy this guitar. If you are a beginner, start your musical career off right. Buy a Squier or Ibanez or Epi or something not made to snatch you with looks and steal your money. Learn from my mistakes.

Comments about B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar:

I went to the store one day trying out guitars when I saw this. I tried it out since its looks, and it blew me away. I actually liked it better than all of the Gibsons and Fenders I played that day. A really versatile guitar with a great metal look.

I have owned this guitar for nearly a year and i have to say. It is a nice little neet looking guitar but the set up is not my favorite! I jam with it I recorded with it but i can never get a good pinch in. its best use it distortion. if you are looking for a pure metal distorted guitar i would say get it its cheap and nice looking. but dont expect any Les Paul sounds coming out of it

    Comments about B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar:

    I wasn't really impressed with this guitar. I owned two of them over the years. I loved the way it looked and really wanted to like this guitar. It just was not a very comfortable guitar to play. Pick ups are weak for playing metal, didn't care for the tone, and hated the feel.

    Starter guitar

    By travismofo

    from CO

    Comments about B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar:

    I bought a bronze series warlock back when they came with the widow headstock. I've had it for almost 6 1/2 years with a decent amount of playing for that time and it still is in almost perfect condition. Not that it has seen extensive abuse but 6+ years of consistant use for a guitar of this price isn't half bad at all. Great for a starter guitar

    Comments about B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar:

    Originally I looked at the guitar and thought, wow. But after I picked it up.. that changed a lot. The guitar first off, sounds horrible. If it's clean or distorted, even with expensive effects or amps.. the sound is terrible. The tuners were cheap, and the bridge was not set properly (have seen before on these brand guitars). Don't buy this one.. if you want a BC Rich, save up and get a better model.

    This is the first guitar I ever bought, and I loved it and still do. It lasts a long time, and plays dirty. The only bad thing I'd have to say is that it really doesn't hold a tune that long. It basically needs tuning like all the time. But it's worth it, for this kick ass guitar.

    Comments about B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar:

    this guitar is heavy, the weight i mean. it's a little uncomfortable at times, but it still has a nice sound i think. i keep reading about people who have to replace broken bits, i never have had to do that. i find that the guitar can be adapted to fit any of my musical needs. the pick-ups are poor for being standard factory pick-ups. it is an easy guitar to play. i like it, but i am looking for a new guitar.
