OVERVIEW

A 6-string and 12-string in one axe with smart electronics and lightning-fast necks.

Nothing makes the statement "Pro guitarist has arrived" in the studio or on stage quite like a doubleneck guitar. If you're looking to conquer miles and miles of new sonic terrain, the PXCB612BK Doubleneck Bich delivers with maximum style and impact. Its bloodline can traced to the late-'70s, early-'80s era B.C Rich Classic lineup, but make no mistake: this guitar is all business. Its form, function and tone-shaping abilities scream sophistication.

Its dual neck-through mahogany body design provides lightning-fast access to the highest frets on its 24-fret two-octave necks, and comes standard with two sets of B.C. Rich B.D.S.M. pickups. The lower neck is strung up as a tradtiontional 6-string guitar with a simple volume, volume, tone and 3-way pickup selector; it also features a fully adjustable B.C. Rich Quad bridge. The upper neck of the Bich is strung as a 12-string with rear-mounted tuners below the bridge. A 3-way toggle lets you choose which neck is active. The Doubleneck Bich is a guaranteed showstopper.

FEATURES
  • Both a 6-string and 12-string in one killer axe
  • Nato mahogany body with dual set neck-thru construction
  • Two maple necks with rosewood fingerboards and ultra-fast-access body joints
  • 24 frets on each neck with easy-to-play inlays and 24-5/8" scales
  • Powerful B.C. Rich humbuckers and intuative electronics

Two headstocks are better than one. Order yours today.

Nice guitar for the money, But who would sell a double neck guitar without a case? It wasn't that hard to track one down, but you would think if you sell a guitar you would carry the case.

Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Bich Double Neck Electric Guitar:

This is my first B.C. Rich Doubleneck, but for sure, not my last.....now I want the Trans Red model and will get it at the first opportunity.

I'm blown away and here's why:

You are not going to get a doubleneck IMO at this price at this level of quality, from any guitar maker.
Hanser Music Group/B.C. Rich must have a serious quality control department in Korea vs other guitar manufacturers.

On to my "true" comparison - I have owned 2 90's Gibson EDS 1275's & 1 90's Epi G-1275 and take note of this:

1) This B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Bich doubleneck is not even remotely as neck heavy (slightly at best) as the Gibson/Epi's are, where, you find yourself feeling like..... well, you are...... holding either of them up at the neck end while playing which can be very fatiguing after just a half an hour of play (poor Pagey!!).

It is in part do to the way the 12 string headstock/layout is designed (Intelligently I may add). The octave tuners are at the body end of the guitar sliming down the headstock vs all the tuners at the headstock end where you would end up with more wood weight, like a Gibson/Epi and their big "slab" of wood at the end of the 12 string neck.

Because of that, how balanced the B.C. Rich is, it does not "feel" as heavy as the other 2 overall either.

2)....and this is a no brainer.... Gibson/Epi - 22 frets and your lucky if you can get to the 18th comfortably because of the way the neck heel is designed on both Gibson/Epi.
No wonder owners of the other two make inquiries into shaving the heels .....pretty absurd that you would even have to resort to that on a 4-5000 guitar!!!!!

MEANWHILE - B.C. Rich - 24 frets (That's right,2 octaves!!) (a big reason why I went for the Bich instead of the Epi besides the fact that the Bich just looks much cooler) and you can get to the 24th fret on both necks without issue....enough said.

3) The build quality is mind blowing considering the price.....The B.C. Rich literally has the build quality of the EDS at The Epi price....that's the truth.

and 4)....and I never thought I would be saying this - I'll never dream of owning an EDS again, Gibson cannot hold a candle to B.C. Rich doublenecks....PERIOD. Its flat out just a better designed guitar all around and it simply eats the Epi for lunch in quality at the same price point....PERIOD.

Oh, & 5) lets talk options..... you get a phase reverse switch, coil tapping & varitone control..... big reason number 2 for me.

The Gibson/Epi has not changed a thing since the day they came out & God help your wallet if you ask for more from the custom shop, even a different color!!!!!

I hope this mini review saves someone from going down the Epi road.

I would like to thank MF for this great guitar at an amazing price, the purchase and getting it to my house went off without a single issue.

Thank You Gearhead Ethan for taking my order, making sure I got this guitar at a great price & making sure that I got this by the weekend.

B.C. Rich FOR THE WIN!!!

Now, I'm going to go play with my new Bich.

    Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Bich Double Neck Electric Guitar:

    BC Rich really thought this one through when they designed it, what a gem. On the 12 string neck, I like the fact that they located the higher octave tuner pegs to the back of the guitar. It minimizes the confusion of trying to locate the right pegs on the headstock while tuning. Thus, I feel, making it quicker to tune up.

    Once you figure out what all the features do, it gets interesting.
    All four pickups all have their own volume control, and the switches and tone controls give you versatility in switching back and forth between necks to give you the sound you are looking for.

    It plays and feels just like a Rich Warlock, and has a great sound whether you are wandering around on the 12 sting neck mellowing out, or decide to switch to the 6 string neck to pump out some heavier jam.
    Its comfortable to play sitting down or standing up. I suggest getting some strap locks for it, to drop it by accident, would be an out right tragedy. I'd stand right there and cry with you.

    This guitar is an excellent buy for the money, and will stay in my little guitar commune.
    BC Rich strikes again, way to go.
    Excellent.

    Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Bich Double Neck Electric Guitar:

    Nice instrument. Did not include a case so I am in the process of ordering one since it is really custom - two necks and most cases are for one. Seems to hold tone okay but I am still learning the instrument. I'm happy with it and it was a Stupid deal of the Day so I saved. It is from Korea but most guitars these days are from there unless you want to spend thousands more for a US axe.

      Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Bich Double Neck Electric Guitar:

      I bought the double neck as "gently used" and it was in very good condition. I immediately figured why the first buyer didn't keep it. The six string action was very high because the bridge was too thick. I contacted b c rich customer service, sent some pictures, and they sold me the correct bridge. I,ve set the guitar up with action and strings that I like and it,s a lot of fun to play. Tuning the 12 string is awkward at first, but you get used to it. If you have a little know-how, gently used items can be a good buy.

        The guitar plays nice, sounds great. A little bit top heavy, takes a good quality strap to keep upright. Tons of tones. This is my second BC Rich pro X guitar. Super high quality you'd expect at a much higher price, especially at the stupid deal of the day price. Set up great right out of the box. Thanks.

          The price alone was worth it for a double neck guitar. Weight is fine well balanced, compared to other double neck guitars I have played. B.C. Rich has always been a quality guitar, well made. I would highly recommend this guitar not just price but quality. Had to set up a little bit but that is the choice of any guitar player on how it is set up.

            This guitar has revived the love I have for guitar. I been looking for a unique guitar that would be different not only in looks but in play-ability. This is the one. First, the frets are like glass so smooth and nice. The 24 frets are perfect. The tones are awesome. Reminds me of 90's Smashing Pumpkins.
