Ever since Bernie Rico left the company, I've always felt that they were somewhat of a 'lame' guitar company. :redneck: Like If you want to buy a decent BC Rich, you'd be better off looking at Ebay or Craigslist or whatnot for a decent BC Rich guitar.

Nowadays, when I think of metal guitar brands, it's always Ibanez, ESP, and Jackson and I feel that those companies will always make better guitars than BC Rich can ever hope for in this time.

Looks like Kerry King is the only one keeping BC Rich alive today.

they do have a website still, but it looks like it got delisted from all the major search engines

https://www.bcrich.com/

also seems they've discontinued just about everything besides the warlock/mockingbird save for a couple random models at the low end of the spectrum

Yeah.... I'm with shadowalk. It's a bit of a lame company now. I would add Majones to the serious brands.

They've had a few relatively recent runs that were quality.

I ironbird pro from 2014 I think is pretty decent. My mock stc from 2015 or so is an amazing guitar, a guitarcenter exlusive I think. The ST series from the same year are even better and can be had cheap.

But stealths and ironbirds past 2014 I think are unheard of besides the chuck and mark rizzo signatures. And post 2016 stuff after the change in management was $800+ for made in china stuff with poor QC.

The BCR name is apparently up for sale and I heard a rumor Slash may have bought it.
