In the world of heavy metal, there are few names that command as much respect as B.C. Rich, which is interesting, since founder Bernardo Chavez Rico's background is actually in flamenco guitars. It wasn't until a few years after founding his company that he began building electric guitars, which he adorned with unusual finishes inspired by his love of motorcycles. These designs would lay the groundwork for the unmistakable modern-day look of B.C. Rich guitars. B.C. Rich guitars are played by some seriously heavy-hitting musicians, and often times their body shapes are the perfect complement to musical mayhem thats taking place on stage. Artists such as Slayer's Kerry King, Bullet For My Valentine's Matt Tuck, Ginger Wildheart, Lita Ford, and Cannibal Corpse's Pat O'Brien are just a few of the players who shred riff after riff on B.C. Rich guitars.
B.C. Rich guitars definitely rock, that's for certain, and there's definitely one here for you to rip it out on, regardless of your skill level. If you're looking to purchase your very first electric axe, you'll want to have a look at the Red Bevel Warlock Electric Guitar and Amp Pack. Not only does this pack include an iconic Warlock guitar, it also features the "Insinerator" amp for you to crank up and rock out on. With two BDSM humbucker pickups, this Warlock offers truly menacing tones you'll definitely be throwing up the horns for.
If, on the other hand, you're already an established player who is looking to upgrade to a seriously killer guitar, check out the Pro X Custom Special X3 Mockingbird Electric Guitar. This Mockingbird doesn't just sing, it screams with triple B.C. Rich BDSM pickups and strategically placed 3-way pickup toggle switch. With a limited edition quilted maple top, it's safe to say this is definitely a rare bird.
Maybe you're looking to sound just like rock Goddess Lita Ford? Then look no further than the Lita Ford Signature Warlock Electric Guitar. Designed with input from the lead guitarist of the legendary Runaways, this Warlock (nicknamed "Morice" by Lita) is a total beast. Highlighted by two roaring Seymour Duncan pickups and Lita's iconic axe logo on the body, you'll never find a guitar that looks and sounds as wicked as this, even if you close your eyes forever.
B.C. Rich guitars are staples in the metal world for their bodies that would look as much at home on the battlefield as they do the stage, but looks can only get you so far. With powerful tones that are ideal for shredders everywhere, there's no question about it; if you like your rock to be as hard as possible, you owe it to yourself to plug into a B.C. Rich.
