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.

Case sold separately.

Iv'e been playing guitar for only one year, so to anyone looking for a professional guitar, look at other reviews. I used to play it thru my 15-watt amp, which sounded so bad when i got my 120-watt crate. Fact: This guitar was made for metal. The distortion that comes from this guitar ALONE is amazing. On clean setting, don't expect to do some Stevie Ray Vaughn crap, it sounds like a bass(which may or may not help you in different ways). Without overdrive, this guitar will not work for you. If your amp has some nice overdrive built in, great.Everyone says "pointy" guitars are uncomfortable. The Warlock, on the other hand, is one of the most comfortable pointy guitars ive seen. The body is very heavy (but maybe not as bad as my tele...?)but it's also very solid. The paint so far is fine, I bought mine used so it had some bald spots and scratches. The neck is great: it's very playable, I get no fret buzz and i think the action is ok. The thing is, i havent been playing long, so i cant play like slash. all i can do is my pentattonic and blues scales, and tapping. Remember, i am an amateur, don't expect me to be good at tapping. Tapping for me is a little harder on this guitar, maybe the action is a little higher than i like, or maybe it's the strings i put on. i dont know. electronics and accesories: not much to say. The knobs are sensative, which is a good thing because in the middle of a song i could reach down and change the tone in literally one millisecond. The tuners are fine, the bridge works (this is only the bronze model, but i wish it would have a tune-o-matic) and nothings broken.Price-wise, this guitar is an amazing buy. If you are still in highschool looking for a cheap guitar, you could afford this in 2 weeks pay at the most. If you don't think my judgement is all that great, then look at other reviews before buying this guitar. If you think i'm right, buy it now.

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.

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

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.

    Bronze Series Warlock Electric Guitar

    By Suhm Bodi

    from unspecified

    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.

    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.

    B.C. Rich Bronze Series Warlock

    By lambofgod3596

    from Lewes, DE

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

    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.

    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

    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.

    great value for distorted playing

    By Chris-K3P7L

    from Reading, MA

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

    I've had this guitar for a few years now. It's my go-to guitar when I want to play with distortion because it has great sustain and really makes it easy to play pinch harmonics. I usually run through a Boss Metal Zone distortion pedal to a Marshall DSL100. I agree with another commenter that the sound is bright and a little thin when you play it clean, but if you're looking for something to rock out on, this is a great deal. I do wish it had a tremolo, but I suppose then the sustain wouldn't be as good, and for the money you really can't go wrong. I will also add that the body is very durable. I have a 3-yo and a 1-yo and this thing has been dropped more times than I can count and it still works fine.

    Not what I expected

    By Ninja-uJddO

    from Normal, IL

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

    Let me tell you first I bought it for looks. The sound is acceptable, but is too bright for me. When you slide, the stock strings feel like they're gonna cut your fingers. Don't get me wrong, its super strong, but its not the right sound for my style

    AWSOME Guitar!!!!

    By D7v.AjQ-H

    from Undisclosed

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

    This was my first guitar almost four years ago and it still plays great! I use this for drop B and C and there isnt too much buzzing at all. great guitar for begginers and lasts forever. Just watch the pointed headstock and dont chip it. if you think it would be hard to find a case for it and thats a deal breaker ill tell you what to get: Coffin Case. Look it up! theyre on this site and are awsome! Overall Great guitar!!!
