The Warlock features an aggressive body style, dual B.C. Rich humbucker pickups, and a 24-fret neck. The body is built from agathis wood, the neck is maple with a rosewood fingerboard, and all hardware is chrome, including the one-piece adjustable bridge.
Agathis Body With Beveled Top
Agathis wood, like ash or alder, is firm and resonant, offering great sustain and a focused midrange at an affordable price. It’s perfect for the Revenge Warlock’s non-traditional body shape.
Most of B.C. Rich’s body styles employ a beveled edge around the shape, including this one. In many ways bevels on a top are similar to facets on a cut stone. They catch the light and reflect at different angles, giving the instrument more of a three dimensional look. Some of the B.C. Rich top bevels are extreme and wide while others are subtle and narrow. Occasionally the shape of the instrument is accented by painting the bevels a contrasting color.
A number of B.C. Rich guitars use a classic Bolt-on construction. On these instruments a neck (typically maple) is bolted on with 4 screws to the body. This construction offers some added flexibility in the instruments adjustment and provides the option to change the neck in the future.
The Warlock Widow features a maple neck with an ultra-playable natural satin finish, and a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with white pearloid dot inlays. The deep cutaways make access to higher notes a breeze, so you can shred away in that upper register without any problems.
B.C. Rich BDSM Pickup
B.C. Rich designed their BDSM humbucking pickups to provide a solid sound and to be durable while delivering high output. BDSM stands for Broad Dynamic Sonically Matched. Which simply means that the pickup is designed to reproduce a wide range of frequencies accurately (broad dynamic). Then they are tested and matched in pairs (Neck and Bridge) by their inherent individual and signature tonal and output characteristics to give a solidly balanced tone (sonically matched).
The Warlock Widow features a wrap-around, adjustable bridge, for serious sustain and solid tuning. The chrome die-cast tuners seal the deal.
