My association with B.C Rich started with this truly gorgeous invention the B.C Rich Warlock. I was a guitar player (SInce there were 3 of us and depending on exams and availability usually 2 of us shared roles of lead and rhythm in our band Graveyard Shift) whiich was my Medical College Band. I was looking for a guitar with a modern look since I played an absolute masterpiece in the SA series at the time which was excellent for slowrock, blues, Jazz and funk. I was shocked to find out that a guitar with a case was being offered by a student who found the floyd rose trem a pain to tune and therefore sold it to me. This guitar named the Warlock actually had a surprisingly sweet and beautiful tone. Its artistic construction though pointed proved extremely comfortable to sit down with and practice for any length of time. I have played this on stage, in practice and handled it so rough but it still looks as awesome as it did then. It was a brand which introduced the locking trem system and coil tap in the 90's when many brands didn't at this price point. For all those who want a cool looking, stage shocking, Rig rocking, Blues busting, Head rocking reliable guitar, I strongly recomend B.C RIch Guitars. Along with Yamaha, Schecter and Ibanez I truly recomend you try this buck saving, soul rocking brand.
