B.C. Rich are the weapons of choice for Vortex (Dimmu Borgir) for many a year and can be heard on their most recent albums. Paolo Gregoletto of Trivium is another big name in the ever expanding roster of Artists using BC Rich Bass Guitars.
It's safe to say that few other manufacturers of Bass Guitars focus more heavily on the needs of the heavier player than BC Rich. Boasting a huge range of some of the most eye catching designs and shapes of guitars ever seen on stages across the world, BC Rich offer players of all skill levels the ability to stand out from the crowd with instruments designed specifically for the needs of discerning heavy players.
A number of B.C. Rich guitars use a classic Bolt-on construction. On these instruments a neck (typically maple) is bolted on with 4 screws to the body. This construction offers some added flexibility in the instruments adjustment and provides the option to change the neck in the future.
B.C. Rich Bass Pickups
All B.C. Rich imported bass guitars are equipped with either passive or active EQ B.C. Rich bass pickups. These factory B.C. Rich pickups give a good solid response across the bass spectrum eliminating unwanted muddy undertones. With the active EQ circuit (9 volt battery required), the clarity and attack are boosted. The center detent tone pots give the player a wider range of sweeping tone control to provide the maximum low end clarity and power.
Most of B.C. Rich body styles employ a beveled edge around the shape. In many ways bevels on a top are similar to facets on a cut stone. They catch the light and reflect at different angles giving the instrument more of a three dimensional look. Some of the B.C. Rich top bevels are extreme and wide while others are subtle and narrow. Occasionally the shape of the instrument is accented by painting the bevels a contrasting color.
