Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 1980s B.C. Rich NJ Series II Warlock bass in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original faux leather gigbag. From the sought after NJ Series (short for Nagoya, Japan), this left-handed bolt-on B.C. Rich is crafted with the utmost skill and attention to detail.

Featuring an alder body, “Super 2100” laminate neck, and thick slab ebonic fretboard, this Warlock bass has a resonant acoustic platform with a clear, cutting quality and plenty of natural punch and heft on tap. The stock pair of split coil Precision-style pickups can conjure aggressive growl and thick thump, with a myriad of tonal sculpting options. Controls include a Master Volume, three-way pickup selector, Preamp Volume, Preamp On/Off switch, 6-position Varitone, Phase switch, Dual Sound neck pickup switch, Dual sound bridge pickup switch, and a Master Tone control to round things out. The bass can sound defined and open, or engage the active Preamp, powered by a 9V battery, to push your rig to its limit for mean grind. This B.C. Rich weighs 9lbs 9oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 45-100 roundwound strings, easy-playing action, and spot-on intonation.

The Super 2100 neck is BC Rich's labor intensive and quite rare "100 piece" design, with a medium C-shaped profile carve that has shoulders and lightly rolled fretboard edges, measuring .830” deep at the 1st fret and .930” at the 12th. The thick slab ebonic fretboard has a 9 1/2“ radius, and the stock medium jumbo fretwire is practically perfect, with just a touch of light wear beneath the strings on the crowns of frets 1-4. This bass plays cleanly up the 34” scale with a straight neck and a responsive, optimally-adjusted truss rod. On the reverse headstock, the “R” tuners turn smoothly and hold accurate pitch

All of the electronics function as intended, and the original trio of black dome-topped knurled knobs are present. The toploader bridge sports a heavy-duty design, with a light dusting of patina on the chrome-plated saddles. Cosmetic wear on the gloss White finish includes some chipping on the lower bout body points and just a handful of minor nicks and dings on the body as a whole. The smooth satin finish on the neck profile is flawless.

The original B.C. Rich-branded faux leather gigbag is included.
