Up for sale, a 1992 B.C. Rich Warlock NJ Series electric guitar in 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original gigbag. From the sought after NJ Series (short for Nagoya, Japan), this bolt-on B.C. Rich is crafted with the utmost skill and attention to detail, competing with its US-made counterparts. Flaunting a menacingly contoured body, maple neck, thick slab rosewood fretboard, uncommon reverse headstock, and pair of hot humbuckers, this Warlock can conjure the shreddiest of spells.
Engineered for high gain, the stock pickup pair is modeled after the Dimarzio Super Distortion with a high output ceramic magnet design providing a range of roaring tonalities with ample output and midrange push. The pickups meter at a hearty 11.4k ohms. This Warlock weighs 8lbs 5oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 9-42 strings, accurate intonation, and fast action.
The neck has a slender D-shaped profile with full shoulders and faintly rolled fretboard edges, measuring .760” deep at the 1st fret and .870” at the 12th. The thick slab rosewood fretboard has a 14" radius with dot inlay and stock medium jumbo fretwire. The frets show moderate uniform wear beneath all strings on frets 1-5, with fretwear extending up the treble side of the board to a lesser degree until just beyond the octave. The guitar plays well in all registers up the 24 3/4" scale, with an ideally adjusted and responsive truss rod. The locking nut measures 1 11/16“ in width. The reverse six-on-a-side headstock features black B.C. Rich-branded Gotoh tuners that turn smoothly, and the R-prefix foil serial number is also present.
On the body, the electronics function as intended, with a three-way pickup selector toggle, Master Volume, and individual Tone controls for each pickup. The black-plated hardware is clean, with only light patina on the bass side bridge saddles. The original arm is intact for the Floyd Rose-licensed tremolo, and the unit is very responsive, pulling off deep dives and quick flutters with ease. Cosmetic wear includes light pick scuffing on the treble side of the strum path, finish chipping through the gloss, primarily on the lower two body points, and some light finish scratches and minor marks on the body as a whole, largely relegated to the back. The neck sports a gloss finish with light palm wear through the gloss behind frets 1-5.
The original B.C. Rich-branded form-fit gigbag is included.
