amazing! great, rockabilly tone, nice polished finish, and wait...what? dagger f-holes? incredible, smooth sound. . i actually don't really like B.C rich, but this? keep up the good work. very different from other B.C rich products...in a good way! but not everything is good about it. the whammy bar is too low for me, it is hard to hold, and a little big. i guess that just comes with getting a hollowbody.
I play rockabilly through a Fender Tonemaster. This guitar has a great look and sound. It is a bit heavier than many hollowbodies though. The Bigsby Tremelo is a nice feature to give it a traditional 50's look, but the design is unique to any other hollowbody. BC Rich players are usually metal-heads, so keep in mind the Tremelo Bar is not a Whammy Bar. The Tremelo Bar will not bend the strings to geat deep high and low sounds and it is more fragile, so it cannot be violently pulled. The neck is thick, so may not be ideal for fast-shredding. But it definetely has great fret spacing for rhythm guitar and melodic soloing. If you are into metal, it's a guitar more for the styles of Sabbath and Candlemass rather than Slayer or Cannibal Corpse.
I generally do not care for BC Rich guitars that much, but this guitar is amazing! The one I played didn't have the tremolo but I'm sure that it's still safe to say that this is an awesome guitar. Generally I don't like BC Rich pickups, but these have a very good tone to them. I am considering picking up one of these for myself.
I've just played this yesterday at my local music store. Im not really a big fan of B.C Rich products in the first place. I've played them all from the warlock to a 12 String Bich. They never really suited me. My friend Picked it up and started playing it while I tried out a jackson. He said that It may have been one of the best guitars he has played. Which I didn't believe him so I tried it. The Neck on this Guitar is Amazing. Smooth and quick, Made for very quick soloing. The sound was crunchy and Deep. I played it for about an hour. For a stock B.C Rich I was very impressed. I would recommend trying it out.
