B.C. Rich Releases Six Extended Range Guitars

All six models are now available worldwide in iconic Warlock, V and Villain body shapes.

Hebron, KY (September 4, 2014) -- No stranger to pushing the boundaries of guitar design, B.C. Rich created a collection of seven and eight string extended range electric guitars. All seven string guitars have a 25.5” scale length and the eight string models feature a 27" scale length for comfort and performance. All six models are now available worldwide in iconic Warlock, V and Villain body shapes.

The Warlock Lucky 7 and Lucky 8 feature a mahogany body and bolt on neck with a 12" radius, rosewood fretboard, jumbo frets and an inline pointed headstock. Each guitar is finished with a high gloss black on the body and a fast black satin on the neck. A single ply, white binding around the fretboard completes the aesthetics. Two volume controls along with a master tone knob and 3-way toggle switch control the pair of Duncan Designed Blackout pickups, accented with black hardware and a fixed bridge.

For guitarists with an eye for the more traditional, the Villain Escape 7 and Escape 8 features a basswood body and bolt on maple neck with a 16” radius, rosewood fretboard, pearl bones inlays, jumbo frets and an inline pointed headstock. Each guitar is finished in high gloss black with a single ply, white body binding.
