The high end ones are decent, but you can get better guitars for cheaper.

All the low end ones suck.

If you're buying a Warlock just because it looks cool, you're a dumbass and you deserve to die.

VINDICEDIT:

The high end/low end comment was about BC Riches in general. I don't think they make good Warlocks.

there are LOTS of good BC Riches, honestly... do you expect a $200 bronze series to sound good!?! I play a Platinum Virgo and it's an amazing guitar... If you want an inexpensive guitar, your going to have to sacrofice tone. But if it's tone you want, and awesome shapes your into, you're going to have to throw down over $400 for a Platinum, Platinum Pro, or NJ (now called "NT") series guitar.

If you get a $400 B.C. Rich, you're wasting your money.

Ibanez and Schecter make far better guitars around that price range.

I think B.C. Rich guitars are mostly for nu metal.. They have such a heavy sound but with distortion all it sounds like is dhudhddudududududdudu .. if you want clear tone and quality.. But still want to play metal.. Dean , of course gibson, epiphone, (fenders are .. well more classic rock.. not for metal, and schecters + a tube amp works really well.

EDIT: Iceman? what do those sound like? BTW: i never said i wanted to play metal: im into stuff like MCR, The Clash, and TBS
#11
i play a platinum beast. its great for my style, personally tho, i think they suck in teh way of versatility. but, really, who would bring something that looks like that to a jazz show?
i really enjoy my beast. and, unlike some comments posted here, they arent all that heavy. i probly wont get another bc rich, im looking at esps. they have some good shapes, and better tones.

Low end B.C. Rich guitars are built with the notion in mind that if it looks cool, it doesn't matter how it sounds.

...That is possibly one of the worst notions ever to grace a guitar company.

Not to mention B.C. Riches are so fugly...

I agree with the Dean comment...Gibsons are overpriced, and most Epiphones are crap (you can get an Agile that's just as good, if not better, for cheaper). You might be able to find a used Jackson for that price; their mid- and high-end guitars are nice.

If you think a Bronze Warlock sounds good, you're not ready for a $1200 Fender.

You said you thought it sounded good - with an ear for tone like that, you're certainly not ready for a $1200 Fender.

Yes, i got my BC Rich for $450, and anybody who bashes BC Rich, and braggs about a $1200 fender, or an ibanez, or a gibson has wasted their breath, and possably their money too. I like my guitar, would i have bought it if i didn't? besides, I think fenders and gibsons are over priced, gibson pickups for the most part are terrable, and single coils get too noisey with high gain. And maybe "thud thump thump" is what i want when i play with distortion. Aside from that, i can even get the famed gibson Les Paul "woman tone" out of my guitar... so suck on that
#19
Remember people...tone is subjective.

Arlabester, I've heard that the NJ series BC Rich's are decent-why don't you check out some of those?

Also, I still think the Elitist is the best choice...Unless you REALLY want a unique shape.

xenn you are all knowing BUT this was just a simple question. anyway you know ive been looking at the American Deluxe HSS Strat, and i wonder..i have that hummer, great for punk, and then the two hot sc's, the perfect, most versitile guitar in the world! but, i rlly want the LP, so lemme ask this, do i rlly need all that versitility in that strat? or should i get my guitar design build for me? oh yeah, and the gibson sg, i played one and it was kickass, but will the quality fade over time xenn? people in my band will hate me for gettin an sg tho-_-

If you can find a lutier to custom build you a guitar to your specs for $1000, do that. No guitar will ever top a guitar that you design to your specifications.

As for versatility, it depends on what you play. Do you play a whole lot of music? Or have you found your own style that you're going to stick with?

ok well i like to play about damn everything, lots of mcr, tbs, jamiroqaui, so deep purple here and there, some random video game crap, and i can get my guitar build for around 1200 bux, i wish i could show you, and xenn, did you answer my sg question?
#23
Nope, missed the SG question..

If you were looking at an SG Special, I suggest you pass it up.

The SG standard, however, is a nice guitar. I'd recommend it.

And with your band "hating you" for getting an SG? Tell them they're lousy friends and bandmates. Don't concern yourself with what THEY want. Focus on what YOU want. If they hate you for using an SG, ditch them. If they are THAT close-minded about guitars that they hate you for having an SG, they are pathetic.

With the versatility issue, why not check out a few guitars with coil tapping? That way you'll get all the versatility you need.

Since you like SG's, look into the Washburn Idol series. They're really similar to SG's, but I really prefer the idols. Also, nearly all of them come with coil tapping stock. Most come with Seymore Duncan pups as well.

Absolutely. Either way, the SG or the Strat will work fine for lead. Try them both out, along with some Washburns and anything else you happen to like the look of. Pick what you like best.

^Aww...you poor kid. Your sarcasm detector must be broken.

I was being completely sarcastic. The dumbass from slipknot is the only person I know of who actually uses a BC Rich.

And I believe they're classified as "nu-metal."

And we all know "nu-metal" is code for "sh*tty music."

BC Rich has gone way down hill pretty much the only guitars they make worth even holding are the custom shop guitars every other guitar is made out of agathis and nato horrible tones and their pickups suck. and slipknot dont even use BC Rich anymore mick switched to Ibanez, so Kerry King is all they have left
#37
I have a BC Rich Warlock Bronze Series. I really like it because i got custom pickups in it is probably. Why. Sounds really good, really clear, very nice sustain, heavy and clean as it comes. Perfect guitar for my style of music (Hybrid of All metal types and Hard Rock)
#38
the neck thru nj series are insanely awesome guitars...i played one the other day and it blew me away. and their only like 6 or 7 hundred so not too bad.

Lol, Mick Thomson hasn't used BC Rich guitars in at least a year. He uses custom Ibanez RGs, and has done since BC Rich couldn't/wouldn't make custom warlocks to his specs.

"Nu Metal" is actually code for "anything that came out between 1996 and 2002" hence why SOAD and Slipknot are the same genre as Deftones and Staind
