It is a pure metal machine! The active pickups are hot and sound amazing on my Line 6 stack and Marshall Jcm800. Full sound that is amazing and the neck pickup sounds great for soloing. Can do decapitated, Lamb Of God to ZZ Top and Stevie Ray Vaughan and of course Slayer!
Overall Impression — 9
I play metal and it is the perfect match! It can get a little uncomfortable if you sit and play it for a few hours but nothing you can't get used to. I would definitely buy it again and I love all the features and and how versatile it is. This is my first BC Rich and wow I am impressed!
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar will gig every night for years and the hardware is built to last. Stays in tune even with the hot stage lights on it all night and stays in tune perfectly with the kahler tremolo and the strap buttons are huge and the strap fits on tightly and takes a lot to pull it off. Very dependable and can definitely gig without a backup.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The guitar came setup perfectly from the factory and the tremolo works amazing and you can lock the tremolo down and tune down to drop c and wow does it sound great. The pickups came perfect and everything came perfect from the factory I couldn't find anything wrong with it.
