B.C. Rich Electric Guitars
In 1969, Bernardo Chavez Rico began making flamenco guitars and selling them under the name of B.C. Rich. He then began building electric guitars with design flourishes inspired by his other passion: motorbikes. Fast forward to today and B.C. Rich electric guitars are instantly recognisable and a mainstay of the world of heavy metal.
Different Types of B.C. Rich Electric Guitars
The B.C. Rich electric guitars were solid body electric guitars with a range of outlandish styles. These include the Seagull, the Eagle and the famous B.C. Rich Warlock played by heavy metal musicians in bands including KISS, Motley Crue and Slash. B.C. Rich right handed electric guitars are available for guitar players who favour their right hand, although musicians who are dominantly left handed may still prefer a right handed guitar.
Choosing the Right Number of Strings for Your B.C. Rich Electric Guitar
In addition to standard 6-string guitars, B.C. Rich also make a range of 7-string and 4-string electric guitars. 4-string electric 'tenor’ guitars are tuned in to EADG and are considered to be easier to learn on, whilst 7-string guitars are tuned to BEADGBE, which means you have a greater range but will need to learn to play with an extra string. Ultimately, it is usually just player preference.
