Guitar made in Korea
24 frets, Mafia and Fat Ass Rockfield pickups (passive) Original Floyd Rose tremolo
Volume and tone controls plus 3-way toggle switch
The neck-through body feels very comfortable and allows you to play fast but it's much wider than a Jackson or ESP neck.
The neck-thru design makes the access to the upper frets easier.
The body shaping is wonderful. This beauty isn't too heavy if you're used to BC Rich models. If you play standing the head feels a bit heavy. And when sitting one of the horns might pierce your thigh slightly; it can be painful and you'll need some time to get used to it.
The sound is very good for metal freaks.
I play mainly metal, death, black, thrash, brutal death, etc. and it's the perfect guitar for that kind of music (with EMG 81 85 pickups, you'll become addicted).
I use it with a Roland Cube 30X (usually with the Mesa simulation with the Metal Stack setting). I was positively surprised by this guitar because it is very versatile and it has a very nice and well-defined clean sound, broadening your playing possibilities. The only remark I would make is that the neck pickup sound, which I used to love in the beginning, became slightly weary after a while. It's perfect for very fat metal sounds but it's a bit disappointing for blues (which doesn't really affect me, because I don't play blues).
I've been using this guitar for over a month and I find it wonderful. I love the neck with its red binding and the original Floyd Rose tremolo which doesn't get out of tune even after one hour of serious abuse.
I tried several BC Rich models and I also hesitated between the Warbeast WMD and the Jackson RR3.
I would buy it again without hesitation even though I would love to own a Randy Rhoads-like guitar (a RR24 or a Dean Razorback V255 Explosion).

24 frets, Rockfield Mafia pickups and fat ass (liability)
original floyd rose
1volume, 1selecteur microphones (3 positions) and 1 tonalitbr /> NECK
The handle is very comfortable crossing it saves in rapidity and precision, after it is much wider than a stick or so jackson esp if you find a polish your sleeve go your way.
access to acute is facilitated by the handle through so it's a pleasure
the shape is really beautiful the above there is nothing to say this guitar is a killer and beauty not too heavy when one is accustomed to bc rich. after standing it stings a little nose while sitting after one of the tips fit in the thigh and the time to adjust it makes aasez evil (g had Blocked traffic for 10 minutes the first time)
The resulting sound is very good when you play metal research
I play mostly metal, death, black, thrash, brutal death..et this is the guitar for metal par excellence (I think when adding emg 81 85 we become even more addicted to that guitar).
I have a pair of Roland Cube 30X (I mainly use simulation messa metal stack and position) and to my surprise this guitar can be quite versatile as the clean sound is very nice and very pleasant it does not bleed too and adds many more possibilities to the guitar, small flat for his neck position which seems to me at the beginning which has the force of Use tired a bit. I mean we actually faster around but it is perfect for oily sonorits very typs metal if not for the blues it disappoints a little (but I do not care a bit of playing blues)
I like to play all own sonorits to metal and I is not too try other thing apart with clear microphones
I use this guitar for over a month and I still can not get to the store in the bag so that I find beautiful. I love the red handle Liser and real floyd which moves only very few !!!! even abusing it for 1 hour.
I tried SEVERAL not bc rich and I have long hesitated between warbeast wmd rr3 jackson and I had the opportunity to try and my disappointed.
I got 598 euros with a fast freight and keys (to settle the floyd) on Thomann (https://www.thomann.de/fr/bc_rich_warbeast_wmd.htm)
and I would do without hesitation that choice even though I would love to own a type of guitar randy rhoads later as the dean razorback RR24 or V255 explosion.
