BC Rich Platinum Series Bich Black 2002
BC Rich Bich, black, made in Korea 2002. Well, this is quite a shape, right? The original Bich model was a 10-string offering; the lowest two strings were standard and the upper four were like that of a twleve-string guitar. This is a later 'import' model, so it's a simpler six string version with a handy hardtail bridge. It's a fast player; the neck feels slick and shreddable and it sits in the hands remarkably well. The pickups are passive but fairly high output, so there's plenty of grind and bottom end on tap without being impractically hot. These pop up very seldom, so if you're done with the standard superstrats and need an extremely pointy beast with which to raise hell, here's a totally appropriate/inappropriate option.
