le maitre des marionettes's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

B.C. Rich Platinum Virgo
24 cases, large frets and comfortable
fixed bridge, a bridge humbucker high output, a microphone "hotrails" neck position (double stacked)
slecteur a 3-position, volume and tone gnral
ibanez neck type, with a flat and large enough to tune the guitar to dtuner abme sound mtallique
mcaniques average oil bath
red finish with black surrounds


Trs super fast race, it was soon felt be hard with this kind of guitar. Access in the chamfers of impeccable Aiges creuss trs. This guitar is exceptionally lgre.
The original sound of the microphones is good overall, maniacs abstain. Personally I ride a dimebucker SH13 and hotrails home seymour duncan for his ...
guitar "bisote" all around so no pain when you press his forearm on the upper body.
Be careful not to injure another player with the head shaped handle "bitch"
! handle is the head of the trs heavy guitar Confre a plate leaning toward the handle. !


Trs good for trasheurs, but the sound is clear "bluffing" all of the same, I do not recommend using it for a concert of variation on unless you have bad taste.
Saturation trs it sounds hollow and a lot of punch.


I bought 585 and I am happy trs for now, even if I think we should change the pickups and mcaniques oil baths .... to make a really good guitar

Does everything has already said.


Ds is the webbing that we feel we have the direct sound has revendre.le handle is very soft it is a pleasure to go back and forth a lot of scratches dessus.cette assets. D a its weight when BPS or more hours with no one feels them not even go (I can guarantee you that with a les paul one feels hours) it PSE nothing, we are against left arm muscle because its head is the heavy nosedive: serious misconduct by the bc rich as it is the largest default that I found.
we play well down with trs.
I takes only 8 because of the guilibrage.


Huhu! then really a tonn for Scratch'n 600 euros.j 'I started playing in clean and sound ... gnial! one found himself taking his tps to enter the clean is so saturated greable (do not ymprenez not a strat either) I speak in micro acute because the neck pickup is my liver need much its clear that saturation, it pierces the ear more than anything chose.je plays death metal and it suits me parfaitement.je dtune and I've played in drop with a draft 65-14 (no conventional trs you tell me) but it shocked him even yours if you feel that the mic do not like the grave does not sound the best in the world but it's not bad.


It'll be a year since I have and I am completely satisfied except that the plate leans forward. If I had the choice again I would.

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

B.C. Rich Platinum Virgo
Made in Asia
24 cases, large frets, inlays drops blood color (o the name Virgo Blood)
Cordier crossing (IDAL for good sustain), 1 micro double bridge position, a micro "hotrails" neck position
Nato body (fragile wood must be careful)
slecteur a 3-position, volume and tone gnral
round head with flat and fast "Beast"
red finish black muzzle


As always, we offer a BC Rich guitar original form and ease of play Ingala. The neck is thin and fast. Access in acute is optimum, the big advantage of BC Rich forms. It is a pleasure for vritable solos. While having an original form this guitar is enjoyable to use. It is surprisingly lgret fasteners for the strap are relatively well established (unlike Warlock o one is obliged to ask straplocks absolute), the head is a bit heavy compared to body weight, but you soon. Note that you can play both sitting and standing, which is not empty in the other BC Rich.
It does not have recess on a traditional stand should opt for a wall stand holding the guitar by the head.


Before talking about the sound, I prcise I'm guitarist Rock / Hard Rock in the tradition of Aerosmith, Kiss, Guns'n'Roses. When we talk about BC Rich is associated directly with the brand mtal, mtal death and co. It is wrong, the BC Rich are excellent for Hard Rock.
Although the form of playing mainly suggre distortion, the guitar has a trs good clean sound for the little it is used on the right amp / prampli. Distortion in the sound is fantastic home, I can not imagine if we applied a Di Marzio super distortion in bridge.


I bought 450 euros new. The report qualitfun / price is relatively good.
I AIM wood a little more solid (even as a second-quality mahogany), the big problem of the range in BC Rich NJ. Whether the Agathis or Nato, it remains a fragile wood.
I tried almost the full range of BC Rich Platinum and NJ before I DCID :-) Honestly NJ Trs worth their price advantage but I prfrais a tailpiece through a Floyd Rose Which brings me all Misra rglages every change of strings. I hsit between form Virgin, Mockingbird and Virgo, the Virgo is the most extravagant while remaining playable trs (the other two have a much more traditional).
At that price I would do well on this choice

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

B.C. Rich Platinum Virgo
A-scratch "made in Korea", as specified behind the head as "beast"
-Bolt, 24 frets, ebony fingerboard
BC Rich Micro-double in a double bridge and simple format (hotrail) to handle. The microphones respond to the standards of BC Rich BDSM, ie that are matched to have a balance in their sound (and it puts the woodchuck the chocolate bar in the foil) ... It's more an argument marketting than anything else, but the pickups are not bad (see part sounds)
Floyd-no, but a tailpiece transverse.
A three-position selector, a master tone and master volume.
-The handle is "fast", thin, flat, like ibanez.
NATO-body, (it is a wooden ring, not as Agathis, even if not as classy as the mahogany)

I think the good points: the tailpiece transverse the handle end, 24 cases and ebony fingerboard.
The rest is classic, I put a 7 (I recall that the average is 5, 7 is not bad, but not excellent). Mics and mechanical qualities of "normal", ie suitable for use in Sunday's guitarist.


Here, we attack the strong points:
The neck is super-nice to the touch, it glides well. If you love the ibanez neck type, one is at home in two seconds. The ebony fingerboard gives a comfortable game for sure.
-Access to acute is simple, the shape of the guitar can go without worry, and the construction of the handle screw gene does not really, unless you want to do tricks on the 23 and 24iemme boxes. In summary, extremely simple access to the box 22.
-The ergonomics are good for a guitar in strange forms, you can play sitting down, the strap holds well when standing, it is light. Problemme small plates, the handle seems a bit heavy, but it does not sting the nose if you loose the handle must not exaggerate.
-As far as sound is a guitar "metal", or hard rock, so the sound volume and tone it thoroughly to make him spit out what she has in the stomach. If for some reason you want to have a more purpose, the tone is effective (the volume is less progerssif) and you can play while having a "credible".

I put 8, access to acute is perfect for most occasions, the handle is great and the body is even practical form.


I play metal (thrash death, polyrhythmic, ambient), I am granted a fourth below the normal (if so) with a gap between the strings respected (from high to low: si-sol/bémol-ré -la-mi-si). I need to have sounds that are huge distortion and clean sounds or crunch worthy of the name for atmospheric passages (like those of the group Textures, and Opeth).

The guiatare sounds great unplugged balanced, even if the bass stand out ... them hereunder out all frequencies ... and it vibrates and purrs against our setomac, we feel it vibrate "good", it's a well made guitar what!

I am very happy with the clean sounds that are apparent, with acute and slamming bass that float, that purr. The neck pickup is excellent, coupled with that of the bridge, there's enough for a jazzy, funky, or if you open the tone at the bottom. The neck pickup alone has a nice grain, like the EMG 60, giving clean sounds like Metallica (clear, warm, well rounded). Bleuffant really on that side.

For Distos is more complicated. Attractive at first abbords the Virgo shows its limits fairly quickly. Let me explain: BC Rich microphones are dug in the midrange and aggressive, with a large output level ... In standart tuning it sounds good in almost all situations (not be too manic anyway, right). For if it sounds against in hell for rithmiques palm mute in a single string, or power chords, but the definition is not there, if you try arpeggios agreements or real distortion: it includes much more .. Nag too much for my taste.

Good versatility for a guitar "metal", with real clean sounds .. but a bridge pickup a little too cut for extreme metal, not quite define. A guitar that looks as aggressive does better in its clear that distortion is a bit of shame ... Then wham! A 6!

Edict of 10/01/08: I switched to EMG pickups (81 bridge and the SA to the handle) that there are 6 months, it sounds much better. The clean sounds are warm and round with SA alone, and it quickly crunch mixed position. The distortion is enormous, precise and defined. Wow! As a note of the sound would be 8.5 against a 10 for one to explore ESP Hetfield.


it'll be six months it is home.
I like its look (BC Rich is primarily why they sell guitars), manufacturing serious, good quality / price ratio, a true guitar paid € 412 ... A € 530 (average price recorded) there are better in quality ... but it is less fun to have a copy of a Les Paul virgo. The report Fun / price is excellent here.

I like clean sounds, the sounds are so so distos (Si, because it goes much better Mi) ... So I changed the pickups, so for about 150 € 412 + mic, it's a real guitar at € 560. I can not find it useful to change the mechanical, even if they are not "pro".

I would do this choice, I buy another if I stole the example is a real guitar, and a real pleasure! And it's selling EMG pickups, Dimarzio or Duncan! (Or more!)
