You know B.C. Rich guitars are funny, i really love the aggressive sound they have...but they are the worst "feeling" guitars to play

i have a B.C. Rich Warlock Bronze series(my first guitar i've ever owned, won't get rid of it for sentimental value)

i put a Duncan JB in the bridge and the guitar ****ing SCREAMS...has SO much bite...but the neck has to be the one of the WORST necks i've ever played on...as for pretty much all B.C. Rich guitars i've played...i just can't get around the terrible feeling necks...and my warlock never stays in tune for shit...then again i'm sure the bronze series have low ratio tuners so it's nuthin i don't expect from a 100 dollar guitar

sadly enough, i'd take any B.C. rich over the Westone electra i mentioned before...just saying

I used to hate my Squier with a passion. Now that I've set it up I love it. Sanded the thick poly neck finish down, set the action and intonation, and rewired the middle pickup cause it was being a lil bitch.

I'd take a finely set up Squier over a badly setup Fender any day.


Probably the worst guit i've ever played was a cheap acoustic my grandfather gave me.

For my it has to be the ESP Lynch sig model. I generally really like ESP, but there was something off with that guitar, it felt like a toy and the sound was that of really cheap guitar.

I call bullshit.

I've played an actual Lynch Kamikaze and there's no way in hell any real ESP Lynch guitar is going to sound and/or feel like that.

Well it's true. It was his V sig model (ninja can't find it anymore on the site of ESP). Got it as a trade, ended up selling it immediately .

The worst I guess would go to my first guitar.. growing up we didn't really have money for me to get a guitar so my first was an acoustic I found in the garbage. I was pretty young so I didn't know I could replace the missing 1st and 2nd string or know about tunning it lol

An epiphone lp100, looked great, but could not stay in tune. It wasn't that all the strings would gradually go out of tune (you know from the wood just naturally breathing). It would be one or two random strings way out of tune. I had to tune it up pretty much every time I sat down and played and sometimes during. It drove me @#%$^ crazy.

My Epiphone Explorer was pretty awful when I got it, although it was a second.

The $30 (new) classical I bought in Germany isn't fantastic either. I'm sure with a fret level and a new nut it'll be better though.

Fender Jaguar circa 1997. Couldn't hold its tuning or intonate properly worth a damn, you'd blow on the strings and tuning and intonation would go out. Topped off by the fact that you'd have to remove the neck to get at the truss rod to do adjustments, aggravating.

It's unfair to judge a guitar before its been professionally set up.



I would disagree. Even minor owner adjustments go a long way.

My starcaster. Sounds tinny, can't handle any gain or distortion, feels like a toy, made in some random chinese factory. Pretty much got what I paid for. At least I learned a lot from that first purchase in terms of what to not buy, and what I do and don't like in a guitar.

Sadly, my RG520. The neck had a hump in it, the bridge wouldn't adjust low enough, I knocked it over once and the neck exploded, breaking in like 5 spots(thanks to the lousy locking nut screws). I expect a Japanese RG to at least be better than a Chinese Squier, but that wasn't the case with this one.

Beware when buying on eBay. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

A lot of people like to trash-talk guitars they can't afford and have no experience with. You get used to it.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Worst iv owned is a no name Rhoads V my girlfriend bought off eBay for me a few years back. Complete piece of shit, frets that were cut at the wrong angle so the low E slides off the fretboard constantly, trashy trem that cant decide if its floating or not. The only redeeming qualities are that RR shapes are hella fun to play, and the trem has "overlord of music" stamped into it which i find amusing. The only reason I still have it is because I'm still dating her, if I were to ever break up with her Id burn it out in the back yard right away. At least she never asks me why she never sees me playing it.

Now the worst iv played are Epiphone and Gibson Explorers. The fretwork and necks always seem to have poor craftsmanship and end up being nearly unplayable for me.

Worst name brand guitar would probably be an ibanez rg series. the hardware was complete crap. Worst sounding guitar would probably be an epiphone aj100 acoustic...you'd make a nicer sound putting a cat and 3 cowbells inside an oversized blender.

I had a Squire Strat, the strings would get out of tune during whenever I was halfway through a song. The song was worse, it barely had any sustain, and the tone was weak very one-dimensional. I just ended selling it to some guy who was just starting out playing guitar.

Squier Bullet. It sucked ass. In fact, I used it for a fun little experiment where I tuned it to something like D-D(8va)-A-A(8va)-D(8va)-D(8va). It was fun as hell.

A cheap Harmony acoustic that I got from a flea market. It was my first guitar, and didn't know any better. It had a split in the neck joint. Wouldn't hold tune, though it actually sounded alright IIRC. I ended up giving it away.

I had a BC Rich Bronze Series Warlock which was terrible. It was neck heavy, chipped very easily, played horribly and uncomfortable as hell to sit down with. My first guitar a Gould strat copy with a yellow pickguard was better. Fortunately I trade it in for a PRS SE Singlecut.

A squier SE strat... the wiring inside was such a mess with burn marks everywhere and some wires even being slightly melted, I'm currently turning it into a guitar explicitly for slide with just a JB jr in the neck.

I have owned 12 guitars since I started 6 years ago. Except for a starter (a $100 "Eastone") that sounds like it is made of cardboard and plays even worse, none have been "bad". Except for that, a good Epiphone Les Paul Standard (which I sold) and a great Yamaha acoustic - all have been high-end.

A B.C.Rich (looks like 90's) Bronze Warlock. Worst 120 dollars I've ever spent and now I am trying to sell it.
