Vintage guitars for sale: BC Rich

BC Rich is a brand naturally associated with rock and metal - but the brand emerged from the workshop of luthier Bernardo Chavez Rico, who had been making flamenco guitars in LA throughout the sixties. Ultimately, BC Rich production would move to Asia, but the early US-built guitars are highly prized by players and collectors alike. The through-neck construction of many BC Rich guitars, combined with early active electronics produced guitar tones very much suited to the early 80s metal scene.
