I play METAL! And this guitar does METAL. I play through a Roland Cube 30, and it sounds decent on the clean channel but outstanding on the distortion. The pickups are perfect for my kind of distortion, which is easy to find on tube amps but eventually I got decent with my old guitar. Now it is really stunning. I am rather pleased!
Overall Impression — 8
Really good guitar for the price, although 600 I might turn my back on it, that seems a bit much, but now I'd be happy to pay it again. If this guitar broke (beyond repair) I would beat up whoever broke it, and then cry for an hour. Then I'd buy another BC Rich NJ guitar, but in some change I might try a warlock... I dunno. Great guitar, bottom line.
Reliability & Durability — 7
Colour is fragile. Guitar is fragile... The strap buttons are good! On my first guitar, they were useless, on my 2nd they were amazing, and on this, I can trust that my strap will stay still but its kinda hard to put on. I've never gigged before, be a few years before I probably will... but the bridge would mean I got depend on it pretty well.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
Well, the colour can't be described in a bad way, its awesome! I did notice it is very fragile though... Everything was set up well, but I may change it... No flaws, factory did a good job, could of done better strings, or its just old strings, I'm not sure.

Ok, this is a BC Rich Jr. V I got on Ebay (originaly at 600). Iif you want the deatiled features you can buy it in (mine is limited edition/custom finish) either look at another one of the reviews or the BC Rich website. Its basically a v with a rosewood fingerboard, 24 frets, passive bdsm H-H pickups, and a Floyd Rose. The finish I have it in is see through dark green, sounds bad but looks great.
