The stealth that stands out in a crowd.
The Pro Series BC Rich Stealth Pro Electric Guitar offers neck-through construction, a mahogany body, and a Floyd Rose Original tremolo. Other enhancements include a fully bound thin C-shape maple neck, an ebony fretboard with 24 jumbo frets, and a killer body design. Plus, the BC Rich Stealth Pro is equipped with some serious hardware, including active EMG pickups.
The guitar's high output EMG-81 bridge pickup is designed especially for lead guitarists. The EMG-81 is at its best on high volume overdrive through an amp with a master volume control. Whether you're playing power rock and roll, or overdriving your amp, the EMG-81 active pickup delivers razor sharp attack and incredible sustain that makes for brilliant soloing. If you're looking for exceptional qualities in a rock guitar pickup, the EMG-81 is the one.
The Stealth Pro's EMG-85 neck pickup is one of the maker's first pickups, with a slightly more sophisticated and well-rounded half of its famous twin, the EMG-81. Featuring close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets, the EMG-85 is a powerful pickup with exceptional tone and versatility. Most often used in the rhythm position, the EMG-85 pickup's alnico magnets provide a muscular growl and smooth lead tones to give you playability from the muddiest of blues to the most extreme metal. Try an EMG-85 in the bridge position for exceptional smoothness and soul.

I purchased my B.C. Rich Stealth Pro new a few weeks ago and have given it a solid workout at home and on stage. This beast shreds! A metal monster! Since I ordered this online and did not have a chance to play it first I was a little scared that I would not like the 24 5/8 scale length being a 25.5 lover by nature. However, I wanted something different and the stealth delivered.The reverse headstock is classic and the tuners are very smooth on this thing. The Floyd Rose is an "original" and stays in perfect tune once set up correctly.I was hoping for taller frets......preferring 6100 fretwire but I am getting use to the lower profile. I will eventually refret with 6100 wire. The neck is tall almost like a Jackson guitar. The neck is not thin but is not chunky either. The neck does get thicker near where the neck-thru meets the body which actually makes sense when soloing. The guitar is very lite and before plugging it in I feared that it may be lacking body....I was dead wrong. Due to the mahogany body the stealth has warmth with a nice bite to it. I own an ESP MII Urban Camo and as far as tone this guitar blows the MII away to my ears, the MII sounds thin in comparison. Expect neck dive with this guitar, which BC Rich is notorious for.....however, if you play with your guitar about mid level then your pick arm can balance the lightweight guitar. You can also put a counter weight, two pounds or so, in the electronics cavity which I plan to do soon if I can find one small enough.My pick hand tends to touch the volume knob the result is inadvertently turning down the guitar volume. I fixed this by moving the volume knob to the pickup selector hole and just wiring the single bridge pickup (no selector, no neck pickup). This will probably not be practical for everyone but works for me nicely.The tones I am getting out of this guitar is out of this world. Harmonic overtones that none of my other guitars have never given me. Not sure what it is but I like it....a lot! My only real complaint is the pain job. I love the color and right out of the box the Satin Ice Blue is beautiful. However, it is not the best paint or paint job. Within a few hours of playing my pick hand touching the body "buffed" the pain and it is now glossy or semi glossy in that area. The neck seemed like it had paint bumps and I ran some 000 steel wool on it a few times and it fixed it right up. The guitar is very affordable, looks amazing and had tones to die for. It is now my #1 guitar even with its minor flaws.
