fabbcrich's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Really good guitar"

B.C. Rich Platinum Warlock
Manufacturing Korée
Alder body
Maple neck
Rosewood very black
Tune o matic bridge
24 cases
2 humbuckers BC Rich passive bridge and neck
1 volume for each microphone, 1 Master Tone and 1 3 position selector
I said that I shielded the cavity knobs so frying already low original has become almost non-existent distortion even background, on this occasion I could see that the cables are large diameter welded well, quality is to go


The handle is just all natural falls or her to be
The shape despite its edges and tips is very comfortable sitting as standing, standing with the strap it is balanced horizontally so a little effort is required to keep it through, just a little trouble at the break in the covers and cases (Fortunately there are special forms for outsized)
Access to acute is natural too, the body is indented, just fixing the handle on which one can bump ... but like most guitars handle screwed.
Sound, quite versatile, with a micro volume can be a little mix between the two, it's nice.
The tuners are good, fluid and precise, they hardly move, even during a concert or more repetitions.


To the metal is perfect it's just happiness whenever I plug
Should not seek a muffled sound with this beast is made for big sound, not necessarily the hottest and most fat it is rather average to the next:
Clearly, it sounds rather crystalline and banging on the bridge pickup and softer with very deep bass on the neck pickup, a beautiful clean as chordal arpeggios that,
Crunch, power is needed to make a clean almost slight distortion as a function of the attack strings,
Distortion, big bass and lower midrange, treble powerful beings without éxessifs it's more precise, sharp, grain not transcendent but better than most guitars in this price range, harmonics come easily enough, the notes sound good untied , its slime and it is not clean enough.

Since I have one with the maple neck through emg and I know what it is surgical precision, and the BC Rich is not too troll of the cot.

The features that I like most: powerful, precise enough, not bad grain, the deepest of all the guitars I've tried sound (due to the alder body and a pitch of 652mm probably), comfortable, and super beautiful.


I use it for 9 years and has not aged
I first had a BC Rich Mockingbird bronze two years before this one
I got it pretty quickly but I've tried almost everything, Squier, Fender, Epiphone, Gibson, Ibanez, Yamaha, Charvel, esp, ltd, Shecter, jakson, prs, etc ...
Only Shecter have a sound that is close but not as deep
I do not hate anything in it she has it all, his only fault (although it's not his fault) is for cases and for the stands due to its shape it can only be suspended by the head.
The value for money is very good, you have to put € 650/700 for the same thing in another brand
I would put 8/10 it is very well made, just the pickups I think change, otherwise really good violin and fittings, nothing has changed and nothing sizzles by now.
Looking back I'll take a guitar-shaped stratovolcano for practicality, but this is secondary, as the sound and comfort are good that's the main thing. It's not a guitar for beginners, but when you start to get the correct level, to repeat, the concerts start and the studio is in its place no doubt.

B.C. Rich Platinum Warlock
This guitar was manufactured in Korea.
24 frets / 2 BC Rich Humbuckers
Bridge "Tune O Matic" Fixed "String Through Body" (Strings Through Hole)
3 Adjustments (2 volume and 1 tone) and a pickup selector
The handle is a handle screwed 4 points, rather flat handle end ...

The finish is quite good even if we can expect more for that price, what I mainly blame: the strings are not centered (the high E is closer to the edge of the handle that the low E) The nut on the top of the handle is not suitable for the head Widow, thus, the high E string "does not borrow the entire trench is reserved" (It's a shame, because it inspires no more confidence than that, a little shock on top of the handle and the cord is susceptible to jump to its location).

That's why I put him 7


The handle is very nice: it is relatively thin and fast access to acute is easy.

When we got used to playing sitting become easier and more enjoyable than a stratocaster, however the guitar tends to nose dive when playing standing up, please have a strap "faux" leather / leather grip it and to avoid duplication of effort.

The guitar is rather light, wood does not seem very dense, and yet we get a good aisaiment sustaint through, inter alia, through-the strings.

The muffled infernal fuse and artificial harmonics on this guitar, which is quickly and easily by hand.

I would put 9 because it is so enjoyable to play.


I play a lot of heavy metal riff typed / Death Mello, where the sound should be typed with very low and has sharp and acute and clear sound. And I must admit that this guitar, once well tamed perfectly meets my demand.

I play on a Marshall MG100 DFX, with a distortion pedal Rocktron Metal Planet / or a ZOOM G2 ...
In setting distortion cranked, the sound is pretty good on the bridge pickup, this guitar is clearly intended for such use. (On the other hand the microphone handle is too fat and too approximate)
In setting Crunch / Overdrive (70 '/ 80' spirit ^ ^) The neck pickup sounds provided us friendly, and the solos go well, the bridge pickup to a report just as aggressive even in this config sound.
In his clear, the neck pickup gives a warm and pleasant, but lacks clarity and hairline, the bridge pickup is too sharp unpleasant in this type of config, prefer to use both lowering the tone control.

I would put 7 in sound as the pickups lack of accuracy for me, and the neck pickup is clearly not right / crappy / no (delete as appropriate) ...


I use it since November 06, and even if I have a fender beside I do not play on the one, because it corresponds better to my style of play

This is a guitar of "transition" that I intend to change soon (missing a floyd rose), which allowed me to test real humbuckers, and thus perceive that this is what I need

I bought it blind, I tried a BC Rich Warlock Bronze Series ... Some time ago and I liked the sound memory, that's why I made the purchase.

The value for money is pretty good, although little blame has some flaws this guitar finish: String thru body => Rings unadjusted Centering ropes, round nut, knob not right, not straight jack plate ( ok good, it's many flaws, but I'm rather obsessive)

If this choice is presented again, without hesitation I would do because, despite these few flaws, this guitar is for me a great guitar for its sound qualities, its sustaint, ease of use, especially for its unique look.

Global opinion: 9 / 10

Yossem's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

B.C. Rich Platinum Warlock
The Platinum Series is manufactured in Asia. It has 24 frets and micro BC Rich humbucker are double the number of 2. The bridge is fixed and does not have vibrato. The strings are through. The micro selector has 3 positions (bridge pickups, and the two neck pickup). Control buttons are 3 in number: master volume, microphone volume and tone. The handle is screwed.


The handle is very nice, it is smooth and fast. The strings are easily accessible, and the treble notament saw the shape of the body. The weight of this guitar is widely supported. Holds it in position is correct, despite a small tandance to head examined.
Its level, it's all cooked. Obtaining a powerful and heavy and very easy. In his clear, it will be played on the volume and tone because you can not disable dual microphones. The bass tend to saturate a bit. This phenomenon disappears when one understands the principle ... . A 5-way switch would have been preferable here.


This guitar is perfect for my style (Heavy, Rock, Hard Rock ...). To play in the moonlight clear sound, it also does. https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif
I use this guitar on an old Dean Markley DMC 80 with the Digitech RP150 effects pedal. The sounds are impressive, both in setting clear that control over-saturated and unsaturated.
I can not say I like or hate qe a particular resonance in this configuration since everything and suits me perfectly meets my expectations.


I use this guitar for 1 week. Some say it's a little early to give an opinion. I would say no, the view is almost in the first hours of use, we like it or not. Personally, I love it. What I like about this guitar? Sound, metal-oriented, and of course its shape.
Prior to the acquisition of this guitar, I use a good old-Stanbury that my time after a good ten years of existence asked a remplacment. I tested the Ibanez GRG 170 DX which also has a good sound.
The value for money is very correct for this guitar (especially if you buy out of country).
If this choice had to be rebuilt, I would do without hesitation, or else I would take the model with vibrato floyd platinum pro (he was not in my budget is cruel life).
