B.C. Rich Metal Master V
In what country was she made?
I do not know.

What type of bridge: fixed bridge-type stop bar, not easily adjustable.

What kind of handle: Handle C a little big.

How many frets, what kind of microphone and their configuration:
24 cases (this is good), microphones BC Rich BDSM dechez (passive with large output level and a rather nice balance).

What are the settings:
A general volume, a general tone, a pickup selector.
I liked a setting microphones (just to make a killer switch, or a kind bisouilles crunch micro and micro saturated) ...


The handle is it enjoyable?
Yes, basic finally, I find it a bit big for me, it is far from the highways (like Ibanez) normal, but not unplayable.

Ergonomics is it good:
Yes, a flying V (if playing standing) is quite disconcerting even being bothered by ... nothing!

Access to acute (recent freight) is it easy?
Oh yes, it's even made for that it seems!

Gets it easy to sound good?
yes, because the pickups sound pretty well balanced to give a good basic sound after I have not played too much metal and with large saturations, but clean / crunch / OD it goes thunder.


Are they suitable for your style of music?
Rock, Hard Rock, impeccable!

With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
I played with MG100, a Gretsch Electromatic, a plexi and a Vox AC15, my preference for the latter two for raw crunch and OD ibid.

What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
There is nothing to detest, it does the job!
I just regret the fact of not having two separate reasons mentioned above volumes, a mobile vibrato was not luxury (for fans of vibrato).


How long have you use it?
I used 2 years.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I already had an Ibanez Ergodyne (Highway handle, true), I tried stratovolcano in the same price range, especially acoustic guitars.

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Most: access to acute.
Least: no separate volumes, no vibrato, almost impossible to adjust the bridge.

How would you rate the quality / price?
Value level, I think I paid a little expensive at the time, I had no back, or good websites for this kind of material.

With experience, you do again this choice?
No, I'll take one with a vibrato and separate volumes.

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

B.C. Rich Metal Master V
Guitar made in Indonesia
Bolt of 24 frets maple,
the rack bar adjustable stop (not really)
BC Rich BDSM pickups two humbuckers,
a 3-position pickup selector,
a volume knob and one tone knob.
And look fabulous!


For a guitar of this price, it was a guitar more than correct.
The handle is quite nice, only downside, the bridge is hard to settle, and the strings are a bit high to the handle.
The input jack is not great either.
Access to acute is rather easy (compared to other guitars with similar prices), even playing sitting
I have not weighed, but it does not weigh very heavy.
It is fairly well balanced, better than a warlock anyway.


The pickups are BC Rich pickups, microphones, entry-level, yet we are left with no microphones as bad as one might imagine: the micro serious sends big sound, regardless of the tone control .
You can get a sound rather nice with the mic acute, but we need some tone settings.
Basically, sounds more than adequate for a guitar of this price.


I used six months, and what I like most is the look! But the handle rather fast for a entry level guitar.
But this guitar has a defect: the bridge. Unable to pay, the strings are too high relative to the handle. It's not unplayable, but a bit annoying at the end of round.
But this guitar at a value price more than adequate, and for that with experience, I would do the same choice.
