I paid about 230 for my axe. I got it at Musicians friend scracht and dent store in Kansas city, kansas
i love the looks!!! i like the pickups they crunch and put out some good sound. unless ur super picky this guitar is great. I like the widoes peak, i like how it stays in tune.
i dont like the toggle swich to change between pickups whenever im bustin out hardcore live i always hit the toggle swich changing myt one. people alwasy complain about the weight of this guitar but..with the correct strap ull be fine.
great construction, dropped it alot and nothing broke off so its great. Ive put it threw a rough beating and its with lasted
i love my guitar and wouldnt change it. If u like the looks buy it and the playing ability and tone will suprise u as much as the looks.
I have been playing guitar with a crappy Kramer Focus for about a year when I decided to ask for a new guitar for Christmas. I asked for a B.C. Rick Warlock. I've always loved the way they look, nd i had been a fan of Slipknot for some time, and I admired #7, Mick Thompson's Custom Warlock. I think my parents got it for around $450-$500.
First off, I must say the look of the guitar is really cool. The pointy edgs, the widow headstock. A beautiful black finish only sow ugly fingerprints for everyone o lo-and-behold, while the chrome hardware on the black sticks out like a nun in a Slayer show. Its a beautiful site-- but I might be over exaggerating...
the covered humbuckers are really hot, and pickup just about every vibration the strings have to offer. although these pickups are desigened for metal, they have an unually sweet sound when played clean.
The bridge is a regular tremolo, and give the neck extra slack wen using thick gauge strings. the neck is quite easy to move around on, probably because the strings are set fairly high, which is a great thing when playing heavy metal. the extra jumbo frets give a little more leniency with fingering when playing fast power chords. the guitar is also very easy to tune, although it doesnt come out of tune that much.
Well, when i like to play, I love to stand up. I also like to have my strap low. I notived that the neck on the guitar is heavier than the body, so the guitar is a little unbalanced, causing your hand to get a little tired while holding it up while playing. Also, make sure not to bump the headstock into anything, it gets chipped very easly. I learned that the hard way.
The pointy edges are great, the humbuckers are hot, the neck is heavy... but overall great to play.
Great to play heavy metal with-
I ordered a left-handed version of this guitar from Guitar Center for about $295.
First of all, I love the look. The strings are very close to the frets and the frets are smoother and closer together than normal guitars. This helps a lot if you are playing for speed. A lot of death metal bands use and endorse BC Rich guitars. Another thing I like is the tremelo. You can pull it back to give kind of a wail sound.
When I first got it, it seemed kind of heavy. It takes a while to get used to, but after you do, it seems weightless. Any other guitar you play afterward will feel like a feather.
The tone of this guitar is a lot better than I expected. This particular style is mainly used for fast, heavy music, but it also sounds great if you're playing without distortion. I was really surprised about that.
There is no other guitar I'd rather have than the BC Rich Platinum Warlock. Outstanding looks, amazing sound, comfortable feel. BC Rich at their best.
I BOUGHT IT OFF OF MUSIC123.COM FOR 249.00
THEY HAD FREE SHIPPING, SO 249.00 WAS IT.
IT HAS VERY COOL LOOKS, I REALLY LIKE THE SOUND OF THE PICKUPS.I LISTEN TO A LOT OF PUNK AND METAL,AND THIS GUITAR SOUNDS EXACTLY THE WAY IT SHOULD FOR THOSE TYPES OF MUSIC.THE WIDOW HEADSTOCK IS VERY COOL,AND I LIKE THE SEPERATE VOLUME CONTROLS FOR THE PICKUPS.
IT WAS A LITTLE HEAVIER THAN MY OTHER GUITAR,AND I WISH THE TREMELO WAS LOCKING, BUT THE STRINGS STAY IN TUNE REGARDLESS.
IT IS VERY WELL BUILT,THE PAINT IS FLAWLESS,AND THE HARDWARE LOOKS GOOD.OVERALL, IT IS A VERY NICE GUITAR FOR THE MONEY.THE NECK IS WELL BUILT,IVE GOT THE ACTION SET VERY LOW WITH NO FRET BUZZ WHATSOEVER.
I HAVE ONLY BEEN PLAYING FOR ABOUT 2 YEARS, AND ITS MY SECOND GUITAR.IT IS HANDS DOWN BETTER THAN MY ENTRY LEVEL IBANEZ AS FAR AS THE SOUND AND LOOKS I WAS LOOKING FOR.IF YOU WANT A HEAVY METAL GUITAR, THIS IS IT.
