For those who seek B.C. Rich performance in a 7-string, meet your match.

This JRV 7 string guitar from B.C. Rich features classic B.C. Rich neck-through construction, a Floyd Rose Original 7-string tremolo and Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners, and a beautiful trans purple quilted maple top to make it really stand out in a crowd.

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 Floyd Rose Tremolo System is used by more professionals throughout the world than any other. No copy can duplicate the patented double-locking design of the Floyd Rose Tremolo System that allows you to lock your guitar in tune at the nut and at the bridge. The Floyd Rose Tremolo System is engineered like no other tremolo system. Its high quality steel parts are manufactured to exacting specifications.

B.C. Rich is known as one of the pioneers in Neck Through construction. They utilize it on many of their guitars, because it provides the best possible sustain, resonance, comfort and access to higher frets. Neck-through has long been considered the premium construction method for high-end guitars. This construction starts with premium maple or mahogany and runs from the tip of the headstock to the end of the guitar. This means that the headstock, fingerboard, pickups and bridge all are mounted to this single sound foundation. Sonically it is a difference you can hear.

Most of B.C. Rich body styles employ a beveled edge around the shape. 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.

Other appointments on this awesome shredder include C neck shape, 24 jumbo frets, 1-7/8" nut width, 12" radius, and a gloss finish.

Case sold separately.

  • Way ahead of its price range!!

    As reviewed by Seth Greenwood on 11/19/2013

    I got this guitar a few months ago and it's been my main guitar ever since. The feel of the neck and fret board is quite possibly the best I've played(that includes a 3000$ ESP). I'm not going to lie, the pickups are good, not great. The bridge pickup is excellent, harmonics come out effortlessly and the clarity on the low B/A string is amazing. The neck pickup is average,it sounds better than most BC Rich stock pickups but its not in the same league as things like dimarzios or duncans. The Floyd rose is amazing (as they usually are). The overall sound for heavy music is superb. It has some pretty great clean tones if you are going for a crisp compressed type sound but i wouldn't recommend it if you are mainly playing jazz, blues, country etc. The tuners are absolutely superb and so are the locking nut and bridge. I can go weeks at a time without having to tune (I absolutely abuse the wammy bar) and when i do have to tune it, its a pretty easy and painless process due to the really smooth tuners. I wouldn't have said its a particularly light guitar but its not very heavy either, it's light for a 7 string i guess. The finish is flawless, I can't find any imperfections on the binding and the paint has survived some reasonably hard bashes without a scratch. . It doesn't come with any case or bag but luckily the customer support at Guitar Center suggested a case to buy with it and it fitted perfectly. It was the SKB V-type soft case.I would highly recommend this guitar to anybody who plays metal/rock and wants to keep under $1500. It without a doubt devours any other 7 string in its price range (that i have tried or heard at least). I almost bought a dean rc7x instead but I went with my gut and bought this one and am incredibly glad that i did.

  • Great Guitar for the money.

    As reviewed by Mike Renzi on 6/21/2013

    I bought this guitar a month ago and I couldn't be more pleased. The floyd does exactly what it should, but I went into this knowing I would eventually block it (not before giving it a fair go, but whammy's just aren't my thing.) It balances well, and the upper fret access is great which isn't surprising on a neck through V. The stock pickups are really actually pretty good. I swapped mine out, since I happened to have a spare set of pups, but I wouldn't have been upset if I had to keep the BDSM's. My only problem with this guitar is two finish flaws. One, at the tip of the headstock, the colored paint is worn down revealing about a pin head sized amount of wood to poke through. I thought maybe I'd banged it and chipped the paint, but the clear coat is still on top, so that wasn't the case. Also on the low B side of the neck, right where it meets the pickup, the corner is also missing a small amount of paint. I doubt this is common, and it doesn't hinder play or even looks enough for me to worry about getting a different one in its place. Overall, it's a great guitar, and if you're in the market for a 7 string V, don't hesitate to get one.

  • Excellent BC Rich

    As reviewed by Tyler on 10/24/2010

    I bought this guitar a little over 2 weeks ago, so far I have had a great experience with it. For a 7 string it was very easy to adjust to, the neck feels great and the v-shape allows easy access to all 24 frets. The Floyd Rose Original 7-string tremolo is top quality and adds alot of versatility to this guitar. For stock pickups the BDSM humbuckers sound great and reach a great range of high end and low end tones. I also noticed how much lighter it is from most BC Rich guitars which I was surprised and pleased with. So for any guitarist who want to experiment with a 7-string guitar highly suggest this model. It was worth every penny.
