The B.C. Rich Kerry King Wartribe features a hard Canadian maple bolt on neck, a beveled top basswood body, a rosewood fretboard with 24 jumbo frets and a white pearloid wartribe tribal inlay at the 12th fret, a Kahler tremolo and 2 B.C. Rich BDSM humbucker pickups.
The Kerry King Wartribe Electric Guitar uses a classic Bolt-on construction. The maple neck is bolted on with 4 screws to the body. This construction offers some added flexibility in the instruments 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. That simply means 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).
The Kerry King Wartribe 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.

This is the only guitar i have been able to put into drop G.... yes DROP G and it will still stay in tune it broduces a nice thick bass sound that goes perfect with all of my bands sound.
I have had this guitar for about three weeks now. Overall I am Impressed. This is the Starting point for BC Rich (built with a Tremlo System) They claim its a Kahler Tremlo, but upon further inspection it is only a cheap mass produced P.I.E.C.E. It won't stay in tune for more than a couple of Dives and mabey (If you are lucky!) Some Mid level Pulls. I took it to a Gig and it didn't last a whole set...I Defy Kerry King could (Or Would) sport this baby on stage. I had planned to spend some more money? for a real tremlo but, when I peeled back another layer of the onion, the pickups are (it seems) made by the same crappy Twian knock off Kahler. This Puppy needs WAY to much replaced before it would ever go back on stage with me..Overall a dissappointment, On the plus side, the neck is great and has good speed. (replace the strings ASAP) For the beginner that wants to look cool and dosent care if his Axe can cut it with a cheaper better built Guitar.
i got this guitar about 2 years back and it's been the best guitar i've owned. nothing has gone wrong with it, it's still in amazing condition after the gigs i've played at and all the hours i've put in practicing. i've only had one problem and that is the jack input failing but it'll come back on and stay on the rest of the time, but it's an easy thing to fix.all in all an amazing guitar and worth the money.
Well the sound is good, the Kahler kinda refused to stay in tune for a couple of days but it fixed itself later... the fretboard is a lil' bit uncomfortable, but not unplayable... overall, it's a nice metal guitar for a starter
I recently bought this guitar offline and played 3 gigs so far. It held up great! I have merely no problems with this guitar no buzzing frets or "dead" frets. It has one of the best necks I have yet to ever see on a guitar. My band and I practice about 4 times a week and playing metal the strings get worn fairly fast but Super slinkys or GHS Boomers work great. I was/am truely impressed. I recommend this guitar for beginners,rockers,metalists,and extremists. The BEST guitar I have ever owned.
This guitar is amazing... I've had it for about 5-6 years and have had not 1 problem out of it... It's EXTREMELY sturdy and handles about anything you put it though (trust me when I say ANYTHING)!! I put EMG Actives in it and it sounds even better with those... Def amazing quality for B.C. Rich (prob about as good as Rich gets)!! Highly recommended to metalheads!!
This is a really good metal guitar. It has a great body, has one of the best necks of any guitar i have used and the head it just awesome. I would advise this guitar to anyone who wants to buy there first or second metal guitar.
