New B.C. Rich Signature Models
B.C. Rich has introduced several new signature models created in collaboration with Kerry King, guitarist for Thrash Metal titans Slayer.
Four new models are available, each bearing finishes, features and tones approved by King himself.
Two models feature a new Kerry King graphic: The Kerry King V Flame Generation 2 depicts a two-tone tribal graphic over a flaming backgound image and the Kerry King V Metal Master Generation 2 shows this same graphic over a gloss Black finish. The Generation 2 images are based on the B.C. Rich Handcrafted guitars that King plays on tour with Slayer.
The V Flame features a Kahler X-Trem tremolo unit, 24-fret Ebony fingerboard, beveled body top, black hardware and B.C. Rich Active pickups for a street price of $569.99.
The V Metal Master guitar utilizes a wrap-around bridge, 24-fret Rosewood fingerboard, beveled body top, chrome hardware and B.C. Rich BDSM humbucking pickups for a street price of $399.99.
Ushering in a new shape for B.C. Rich are the Kerry King Beast V models. These guitars mate the company's fear-inducing Beast shape with its Speed V body style, the company says. The Kerry King Beast V NT provides the classic B.C. Rich "Neck-Through-Body" construction designed to maximize tone, sustain and long-term stability. Features include a Gun Metal finish, Kahler X-Trem™ tremolo unit, 24-fret Ebony fingerboard, beveled body top, black hardware and B.C. Rich Active pick-ups for a street price of $999.99.
To make this instrument affordable to more players, B.C. Rich says, the standard Kerry King Beast V alters the recipe slightly. It offers Bolt-On neck construction, an Onyx finish, Tune-O-Matic bridge, 24-fret Rosewood fingerboard, chrome hardware and B.C. Rich BDSM pickups for a street price of $399.99.
