Ok, so I just got my 2nd instrument for $200 bucks at a pawn shop, it appears to be a B.C. Rich Bich (6-string), but the knobs are out of place, and it looks kind of old, so I think it's from a discontinued line of Bichs. Anyway, whoever last owned it REALLY messed up the bridge and string height. There is WAY too much action as I go up the neck (towards the pickups), and the action is so low at the bottom of the neck that it buzzes against the frets. I have no clue how to fix this, and I'm sure that if I try I'll just mess it up more. How much do you guys think a trip to the repair shop will cost?
$40 give or take $10.
it could deed a simple set up, or of could be worse and the neck is warped and need replacement....
I'd say you got ripped off for 200 bucks. Hope it's nothing serious like the neck.
Take it to a local guitar shop, buy a new set of strings, and get them to re-string it/give it a proper setup. It shouldn't cost anymore then $40.00, like mikeyElite said!
Knobs out of place how? re-drilled? What does the truss-rod cover plate say? Old model BC riches are sick, new ones suck balls, unless there top $$$ high-end. I just got rid of two, PM me for more info.
