B.C. Rich: Masterpiece Bich
0

Purchased from: Guitar World

Sound — 9
Great for metal guitarists, it can rip out a wide range of rich quality sounds from acoustic to distortion. It can give a peaceful acoustic tone great for any intro, or a meaty riff great for any song. I use my Crate half-stack cab set, and it sounds amazing, and always blows people away.

Overall Impression — 10
This guitar has pulled off Slipknot, Rammstein, and Mastodon near perfection. I have been playing for 5 years, and this was my second guitar, my first was an Ibanez GAX30, and the B.C. Rich Bich Masterpiece blows that guitar away.

Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar has lasted through many gigs without failing. I've dropped it a couple of times, and it always has come off unscratched, the fret board has remained strong after many sessions, and buttons are solid as a rock. Everything in this guitar is quality.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Everything that it comes with was near perfection, it took only two minutes for me to get the sound that I wanted out of this guitar, and the Chrome pickups pick up every sound that you want to hear. I've had this guitar for almost a year, and I have yet to find any flaws with it.

Features — 10
The Masterpiece Bich is not short on looks or features. This bolt on guitar is an arch top with AAA quilted maple veneer. It is scaled to 24 5/8 with 24 jumbo frets and has a Rosewood fingerboard with block inlay. Additionally it has a string though body with a tune-o-matic bridge and two chrome covered humbucker pickups.

    theres nothing wrong with sitting down while playing to learn a song then standing up to clean up its sound and sharpen the quality of what ur playing for on stage plus not all guitarists are gonna be on a stage.
