The power of a handcrafted 10-string, for less than you might imagine.
The B.C. Rich Bich 10-string is a handcrafted, inspired, imported version of the 10-string. Of course this guitar features the B.C. Rich neck-thru design, Nato body and contrasting wood stringers. In addition to their eye-catching appeal, this instrument is designed for function. The Bich 10-string guitars have a comfortable 24-5/8" scale on the 24 jumbo fret Ebony fingerboard, headstock and neck binding, string through the body design, tune-o-matic style bridge and two open-faced Rockfield humbucker pickups.
The Rockfield Mafia pickup is the perfect choice for that warm, overdriven tone that has made some of the world's leading guitarists famous. These custom high output pickups cut through any mix with loud and proud authority. All the while, they maintain extreme balance and note definition. The overall tone is clear and rings true in any format with booming low ends and crisp mids and highs that are now again what timeless music is made from.
Years ago, B.C. Rich introduced the 10-string guitar to the world. Revolutionary in that it had the typical 6-string headstock, but it had an additional 4 strings that terminated in reverse at the headstock and went to tuners on the end of the body. Due to its huge sound and construction, the B.C. Rich 10-string has been seen on rock stages adorning pros such as Slash and Joe Perry. For years, these 10-string instruments were only offered as Handcrafted B.C. Rich instruments.

Black onyx Bich 10 is a very useful guitar. Overall quality is very good for the price, if you want to get same features (through -body neck, ebony fingerboard, to mention a few)from a american brand, you'll pay thousands of dollars...You can get a good sound right out of the box, with a minor intonation/height adjustments. The pickups are very good too, non microphonic and quiet. This model has a basic tone controls, which is enough for me. On my guitar I've changed the nut- put graphite and did a custom string spacing (very individual specs), put a little heavier strings (10-09, 13-09, 17-09, 26-09, 36,46), added a "bright" caps at the volume controls ( 220pf value), changed output jack to Switchcraft, installed straplocks- now it's a super axe with wide tonal range- Byrds, Beatles, Who, etc. With distortion- a bunch of unique tones too. I would reccomend this guitar for 12-string shoppers. I miss doubles on 5th and 6th strings a bit, but with regular guitar size/weight/portability I can get used to it!
