B.C. Rich “Son of a Rich”
These were B.C. Rich’s first attempt at a discount line in the early ’80s [before the B.C. Rico imports which became the B.C. Rich N.J. (Nagoya, Japan) series after a lawsuit from the Rico Reed Company]. They were made (at least in part) by Wayne Charvel, & had quite a few structural problems (although if it’s lasted this long, I’m sure it’s fine). Still for a discount guitar they had some impressive specs, Grover tuners (bullseyes in this case), brass quadramatic bridge, Bill Lawrence pickup (in this case, not sure if that’s original)
Also available were the Eagle shaped “Nighthawk,” & the Mockingbird shaped “Phoenix.”
The first B.C. Rich Bich Doubleneck EVER
1981 B.C. Rich 10 string Bich
One hell of a pretty birdseye maple 1978 B.C. Rich Bich 10
I built this Moser 6 in my last guitar building class. I’ve left it unfinished so the customer can choose their inlays, fret wire, electronics and whether it is to be a 6 string or 10 string. If know one buys this guitar in the next couple of weeks, I will finish it up as a 6 string with full Moser electronics and Neal Moser Guitars pickups, custom made by Cox Custom Pickups.
Specs: Koa neck-thru, figured Koa wings, bound Koa headstock, bound Ebony finger board and Rosewood stringers. This Moser 6 has a MUCH thinner neck than most of my builds. There is at least $1,000 worth of Koa in the guitar.
