Rich in 1974, a system of serial number The Bolt On guitars serial numbers started with BC.
In 1975 Di Marzio agreed to build wax-potted, 4 conductor pickups for BC Rich and they were used until BCR began designing their own in the late 80s.
The company started to make electric guitars in the 1970s that were notable for their atypical body shapes. The company briefly switched owners in the 1990s before being acquired in the 2000s by Hanser Music Group, a distribution company based in Hebron, Kentucky. C Rich has since been acquired by Praxis Musical based in Orange, California. A somewhat odd design, ostensibly based on a toilet seat shape, this guitar was designed by Bernie Rico.
Rich is an American brand of acoustic and electric (bass) guitars founded by Bernardo Chavez Rico in 1969. Rich gained a broader exposure with the popularity of heavy metal and has since often been linked to that music scene. Rich instruments are custom-made in the USA whereas the mid- and low-budget models are produced in different countries in Asia.
Assuming that you do have a US ST and this is what you are talking about I would be more then happy to take some detailed photos of the wiring of both of my basses (one is set up stock, the other with EMGs) and send them to you. Derek Derek, I am talking about my 6 string guitar. The guitar is gutted right now but I can send you a picture any way if you'ld like. Send a picture if you want to my email [email protected] love seeing some snakeskin BC Riches!
Did you mean two switches to control the pickups and 3 knobs?
