Hi people. I`m a new player, my first guitar was a cheap Yamaha EG112, now I have a proposition on a deal to buy a BC Rich Warlock guitar for 150$ including postage to europe and all.
The guitar is a BC Rich Warlock Platinum. I have some pictures, I tried to ask the owner but he doesn`t know anything about guitars so I need a little bit of help from you people since I cant find this guitar on the BC Rich website.
What do you think of it, how mutch is it worth, what year is it? Is that a floyd rose? What does those markings "Licensed by BC RICH" mean? Any info will help.
Thnx in advance!

It's a cheaper line of BC Rich, and it's missing the bolts to lock the nut for the Floyd Rose. I wouldn't buy it.

This is aside from the fact that most low end BC Rich guitars are pretty much rubbish. You might get lucky and find on that plays decent but I wouldn't hold my breath on it...

PS those missing clamps on the lock nut are a major red flag that it's pretty much a bad deal

ok the bronze series is the lowest end from that era for starters Platinum were better and the higher end ones weren't bad guitars. the licensed thing has to do with the fact that at the time the name was indeed licensed to another company who had the guitars made overseas.

$150 shipped to Europe isn't a bad price however I'd look inot how hard it will be to replace the locking nut clamps. not sure how standard they are. no it's not an actual FR but it is similar.

In the nicest way. save a bit more and buy a better guitar.
