The B.C. Rich Classic Deluxe is Eagle Electric Guitar is truly both classic and deluxe. Classic neck-through construction with deluxe appointments. A quilt maple cap and full thick pearl inlays and binding create a strikingly unmistakable appearance while Rockfield SWV pickups, Grover Imperial tuners and a Tone-Pros bridge deliver equally striking sonic recognition! A white pearloid eagle in flight graces the ebony fretboard.
Neck-Through construction is used on the Classic Deluxe Eagle 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 — SWV
SWV Bridge Pickups
SWV is short for Select Wound Vintage. Everybody has them. Why? Because they kick butt! This is where some say it all started and came from. A changing of the guard, if you will, in the future engineering of guitars and guitar pickups. If it wasn't for the original Patent-Applied-For design, who knows where we all would be? With all that being said, this pickup rings true of that vintage tone with of course, a Rockfield twist. Specific people in the know were asked and shared herds of info about how the originals were made. That along with Rockfield's knowledge made for a great combination and a tonal blast from the past. A warm singing and smooth replication of classic Patent-Applied-For style tones that are clear and ring like church bells on Sunday afternoon.
SWV Neck Pickups
This pickup is perfect in the neck position of any guitar where there is a need to get warm, thick vintage Patent-Applied-For tone. This versatile neck position pickup takes from its vintage brethren a unique and bold tone that is smooth, warm and balanced from top to bottom. The Rockfield SWV neck position humbucker is sweet and full with great lows, mids and ringing highs.
The Classic Deluxe Eagle 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.
