This flat top version of the Warlock comes in black with white binding and white with black binding. The Revenge Warlock sports a bolt-on neck, trademark widow headstock, Chrome hardware, and two high output humbucker pickups guaranteed to rock. White with black binding or Onyx with white binding.

Features: The B.C. Rich Revenge Warlock has many great features, such as Diamond inlays, a Rosewood fingerboard, and chrome hardware. This beauty was made Circa 2006, from Japan. This guitar has 24 jumbo frets on a hardwood neck. The finger board may be wide, that's a small price for a 25-1/2" scale. The volume and tone knobs are not labeled, but you can figure it out. It has a bridge selector with three different settings. It comes with a set of BCR pick-ups, that are Tune-O-Matic. Unfortunately, it (when I bought it) comes with no extra accessories. // 9
Sound: The Warlock will suit you only if you are into the rock (& roll) genres. I don't have a big amp, but it says enough on its own without a fancy amp. I use a FAB Danelectro Metal Stopbox (pedal) that gives it a crunch that most Metal fans will be familiar with. It goes fine with any other effects as well. The noise factor really depends on how good you are and what you are using, if anything. It really has a variety of great sounds, good clean and gain. I also recommend using Monster Cables for a precise and clear tone. // 9
Action, Fit & Finish: I didn't find any flaws at purchase, except that the new stings had to be broken in. I have No Doubt that the builders at B.C. had the consumer, as well as the player in mind when this was made. Although, the nut will get cut into, but (I hope) that's normal. // 8
Reliability & Durability: This guitar will go where you will. People say "ooh" and "aaah, shiny." Yes, it can go Live as long as you can. The hardware is pretty decent, but if you don't take care of it, the screws around the pickups might rust. But not badly. It has a good pair of strap buttons, they've held all of my straps. That's saying a lot. You can depend on it, but as I have said before: just take care of it. The finish is glossy, so I recommend that you clean and/or polish it once every one to two weeks. // 9
Overall Impression: Again, if you are into Rock genres, then this is for you. I have owned mine for two years, and it still is running, if you will. I use it in conjunction win Danelectro petals. Before I bought this, I didn't know much about guitars. If you are still a little confused about it, ask a salesperson at your local Guitar Center. They'll tell you what you need to know. If I were to ever lose this, I would get another one, simply because I would miss the amazing tone and style of my beauty. I love that range of tones this thing can dish out. What I don't like is tuning and the head. The G always gets me (Maybe I should upgrade tuners), and the head sticks out that I'm afraid I will hit it on the ceiling and break it. Maybe I should upgrade tuners. My favorite feature is the knobs. Chrome looks sharp. // 10

-Upgraded headstock (what sets the revenge apart from regular.) // 7
Sound: This is a great beginners metal guitar, I'm running it through a Kustom 12 Gauge amp. Nothing big but I can get some deep metal sounds.
This guitar is a screamer and thats what it's made for, I've used it to play some more cleaner and soft stuff but it just doesn't feel right playing some modest mouse on a guitar like this.
Overall it can make alot of sounds, but you look like an idiot if your not playing metal with this thing. // 8
Action, Fit & Finish: The factory setup was quite good, action was almost perfect. I moved around the pickups but nothing to worry about. the wiring is great in my guitar, no problems that I can tell. The finish is perfect other than a very small bit of the black edgeing. It looked a bit touchy in 1 small part of the guitar. The rest of this guitar is flawless, surprised that a low priced guitar could sound and look this good. // 8
Reliability & Durability: Unless you are a bodybuilder this guitar isn't suggested for long gigs. The thing weights more than any guitar I've felt. This thing is a rock, if you are strong enough to take the weight abuse it is worth playing on stage. The finish so far hasn't been tarnished yet, this thing's paint looks as good as it did in the box. // 6
Overall Impression: I play metal and other heavier music styles, this is the perfect guitar for the style I play.
I've been playing for acouple months, I've played several amazing guitars through the local guitar shop and friends. This guitar is quite good for the price it is and I would surely buy another B.C. Rich guitar. I would rather buy the Original Warlock, or the upgraded NJ Deluxe Warlock. The large headstock turns me off of this guitar.
But I still love it for the body and sound. // 8

Features: Not sure where or when it was made. The B\.C\. Rich Revenge Warlock has a solid Agathis body which is pretty cool. Sports a bolt-on hard maple neck, widow headstock (also cool), chrome hardware and two BDSM humbucker pickups(not the best). The Warlock comes in black with white binding as well as white with black binding, and the rosewood fingerboard has Diamond inlays. Chrome hardware and a tune-o-matic bridge. 1 Volume, 1 tone and a 3 way Switch are shown. There were no accessories provided. The white color is drab and boring. I highly recommend black.And the edges of the spikes on the Agathis tend to ship easily. It gets out of tune way to easy as well. // 7
Sound: This suits my musical styling perfect. I have been playing for a year and 2 months. I play Deathcore Metal. (As blood runs black, job for a cowboy, all shall perish). This guitar can pull of the pinches okay, not to well though. The neck is perfect quick slides from the lower frets to soloing frets. I use a Line 6 Spider III 150 75Wx2 2X12 Stereo Guitar Combo Amp with my Revenge. They work great together. I tried to turn my amp to 10 and this guitar did well at full volume on a 150 watt. This guitar has a crazy variety. You can play anything from jazz to the craziest non-melodic metal out there. This guitar will provide. // 10
Action, Fit & Finish: The action was perfect for my taste. I like it low and near the frets. I saw no in-factory problems. The pickups were extremely low. I had to get them adjusted for a price. Wasn't to bad, although I could have used that money for something else. Bridge and top were properly routed and bookmatched respectively. The only flaw in the guitar was the color finish. I have never seen a dimmer non-vibrant white on a guitar. I give "Action, Fit & Finish" an 8 for poor color. // 8
Reliability & Durability: This guitar will surely withstand Live playing. I've never dropped it, I care about my instruments and don't treat them wrong. This guitar is heavier than most. But I'm sure that if I do drop it, this guitar will hold up. The only problem I've had with hardware was the input jack. It came lose and fell off while playing a show at school. My guitar lost sound and I looked bad in front of my entire school. I would recommend you have it repaired as soon as you get it. 4 of my friends own this guitar and have had the exact same problem. The finish is not good to last on the white version of this guitar. It came drab and it will become more drab with use. // 6
Overall Impression: The REvenge matches my style of play. I've been playing for 1 year and 2 months, I own a Gibson SG, a Schecter Damien Flying-V and a Line 6 Spider III 150 75Wx2 2X12 Stereo Guitar Combo Amp. If it were stolen or lost I would huntdown the ******** Who lost or stole my 300 dollars, if I couldn't find HIM I would not buy this guitar again. I love the easy acces to all frets made possible by the smooth maple neck. I hate tightening the frequently loose tuners. I wish it had EMG pickups. Overall it's a trusty guitar, people always ask me about and say "Woah! Sick axe man!" // 9
