We're sorry-this item is unavailable.
The B.C. Rich Outlaw PX3 Electric Guitar features a bolt-on maple neck, 2 Rockfield Mafia humbucker pickups with coil tap, a basswood body with a deeply arched top, a rosewood fretboard with 24 jumbo frets, hollowpoint circle inlay, and two end of body strap buttons for a custom strap fit and instrument positioning.
The Outlaw PX3 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 instrument's adjustment and provides the option to change the neck in the future.
Rockfield Pickups - Mafia
The use of a ceramic magnet gives any pickup extra power due to the increased magnetic field they provide. This feature makes the Mafia pickups produce a hotter and thicker tone that's really aggressive and full. The increased low end, thick mids and in your face highs is what rock and roll was built on! Balanced and full of sustain this pickup is a great representation of its namesake, a truly intimidating killer.
The neck version of the Mafia pickup is just as full sounding as the bridge position, without taking away from what has already been accomplished. Very minor modifications to the overall design and design concept of this pickup gives it punchy, bold tone with the same aggressive characteristics as the bridge version. A tad brighter with a little less output really takes this pickup into the smooth and warm realm of the tonal spectrum. All the while maintaining that balanced bite and in your face aggressive tone that the Mafia is known for!
Deep Arched Top
A deep arched top is used on the B.C. Rich Outlaw PX3 guitar. The deep arch is achieved by increasing the body center by approximately 5/8" and then gently sloping the arch toward the side of the instrument and leveling out just as the slope reaches the edge. A deep arch top when applied to a B.C. Rich shape gives an air of elegance and sophistication.

I have owned this guitar for about 8 months. I like the smooth fretboard and the pickups are of good quality. It plays and sounds nice. It must be tuned often and the tuners seem a bit flimsy. I had to have the guitar set up when I got it because of fret buzz and intonation issues. The "hole" inlays are actually lame because they are not rings, but instead are solid circles with a black painted dot in the middle. Overall it is a good deal for the price. I own many guitars and would rate this average.
I have been playing the outlaw guitar for a couple months now and love it. I am surprised at how light it is! It has a very thin neck and is very comfortable. I had never heard of this pickup brand before , but they sound great!The fretboard inlays are the holes. In the picture it looks like a metal ring, but it is not. It is a kinda cheap looking inlay with a black dot in the middle.Also when I got it the E and A strings had a bad rattle. It got so bad that the rattle would cancel out the sound. I got some new strings and had them installed and had the guitar set up and now I love it.
I purchased this guitar as a back up for my Deluxe series nt warlock, I loved it so much its my main guitar now and the warlock is my back up.The rockfield pu's are pretty good. My warlock has a dimarzio paf fred in the bridge and the outlaw sound identical when I A B the guitars. I was very impressed for a stock pu. I really like the arch top design, it feels good underneath my right hand. All in all its a good medium range guitar for the money. I am happy with my purchase and will continue to buy BC Rich guitars.
