Shape: Its shape brings this guitar to the essence of heavy metal, with its pointy corners, very agressive style, pearlescent details around the body and pearlescent stripes parallel to the neck. It's stunning to look at this guitar during a concert!!!
Construction: Its headstock and neck are built in maple, which is a great wood for neck construction. The body is made of mahogany, but the guitar hasn't a heavy weight, wich is great to play while standing. The fretboard wood is ebony, and gives an elegant finish and provides great playability. Also, the body top style is beveled, which makes it even more easier to play.
Comfort: Its neck is very comfortable, its fretboard is very good to play, and the body shape doesn't hurt (unless you are really skinny, because the pointy corners of the guitar may bother you while playing sitting).
Sound: This guitar really shows its power while playing heavy metal and hard rock! Its sound is amazing, it has a good sustain, great to holding power chords for a long time. The clean sound of this guitar doesn't impresses much, but its pickups and other electronics holds a heavy distortion very well, has a great response, it is loud and heavy like a lion roaring! I would say it is a great guitar for Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, but I don't recommend it if you want to play blues, jazz or classic rock. As i'm a heavy metal guitar player, I don't have this problem.
Pick Ups and Bridge: I am satisfied with the pick ups, but I think B.C. Rich could have put EMG's as seen on Warbeast NJ Deluxe. But, well, for a guitar at this price, it's predictable that i wouldn't have better pick ups. I'm not saying they are bad, they sound really good and have a great tone, but it could be better, and maybe you want to switch the BSDM's (original pick ups for this guitar, built by BC Rich itself) to EMG's or other brand pick ups in the future. The bridge is fine, could also be better, but holds the guitar tuning for a good time, and doesn't gets out...
