this guitar is one of the best bc rich guitars out there. i highly recomend it to beggining guitarists who are looking for massive tone and metal distortion....i find it best to use a marshall double stack with a Death metal overdrive pedal. this guitar might look uncomfortable to play because the body is big and abstract. but believe me, its not. the guitar is top heavy and seems to sit in your left hand more than it does on your lap.(whle playing sitting down of course) when you stand up...not only is the strap holding it..but it rests nice and easy on your hip. very smooth action and solid bridge. it rarely goes out of tune.

I won this guitar and dont get me wrong, I love it. The design of the body and everything about it, at the time of purchase, were amazing. However, if you are someone who plays all the time and you are looking for a guitar that will last you, I do not suggest that you buy this guitar. After about one year of having it, I noticed that one of the wires wasn't even soldered to the volume knob! That was fixed but I now have a major problem with the feedback this guitar's pickup has. If you buy this, replace the pickup! If you aspire to perform on stage, it is really difficult to "rock out" (i.e. headbang) with this guitar. There are just too many protruding edges and they will jab you. Other than that, this guitar is good for someone who likes to play occasionally and enjoys playing metal.

Beast

By heavymetalkiller

from Ann Arbor, MI

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

I wish this had a whammy bar. Nice tone, loove the shape it looks so wicked. The only thing is, you cant sit and play this, way too painful. I saw this guitar then bought it about 20 minutes later. I've owned it about 6 months and no problems. It sounds great with god strings.

Great Guitar

By Nasir

from Carlsbad, CA

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

This is a great B.C. Rich; especially for the price. This was the first guitar a bought, that was around 3 or 4 years ago, and i'm very glad i bought it to this day. It's great for Metal, but clean tones still sound great on it. I highly recommend this guitar. It has great tone; especially if you have a Marshall.

Not too bad

By PocketTaco

from Undisclosed

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

with the right amp and equipment, you can make this guitar kill. Careful how you play it, sitting down can be a little uncomfortable and standing up takes some time to get used to (due to its unordinary shape) one humbucker is all you need, though i suggest changing them cuz the stock pick-ups are not the greatest but until then, you'll manage. sometimes i feel like the neck is so thin and fragile and kinda worries me that it might break at some point. Overall, great metal guitar for a good price.

Nice Guitar

By heaven to hell

from Shaftsbury

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

I have owned this guitar for about a month now. It really is a very good guitar for playing metal and anything that needs distortion this is that guitar. In this short time I've owned it it does have a few chips in the paint, but their barely even noticable. I get lots of string buzz with it and so that's really the only reason I gave it a four star that and the fact of it already has some chips in the paint.

Its pretty good!!!

By Wicked Arsen

from PA

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

I have it and it is pretty good. It sounds a bit better then other B.C. Rich guitars, and looks awsome too! The only thing I can think of that is alittle off is its really annoying point that gets you everytime you put it on your lap... Well I find it pretty worth the small uncomfort, and suggest this to anyone looking for a SOB.

Wow

By The Man With No Plan

from Syracuse, NY

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

This guitar has a FAT tone. Genuinely not a guitar for your average fingerpicker such as me (I'm more UNDER average). A sweet looking guitar, a sweet - sounding guitar, and a sweetly-priced guitar rolled into one.

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

This guitar is awsome,i play hvy metal and i have an amp with a lot of distortion and the harmonics on this thing makes it sick sounding,and its a whole lot more comfortable than it looks too.the only downs are the curves, i hit it on everything and its a little smaller than most, but if u play metal this is a perfect choice

Not bad at all!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

Within seconds of the employee pulling this down for me I already had a customer look over and go " dude, that thing is bad---!" and he was right, it was finished really well, the neck was nice and thin with a matte finish on it. the factory action was just fine. Nice and low. Too bad the amp I tried it on didn't sound very good. I used several guitars (one with an active EMG) and none of them sounded great. but I could tell that had I plugged this into a Marshall or something better it would have had a good amount of bite to it.(BTY, the amp was a mesa triple, It sucked) sadly, somebody banged the guitar pretty good and took a good chunk out of the headstock. I was tempted to see if they would take anything off the price. overall, nice little axe.

Brutal!

By Zak

from Navada

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

This guitar is so smooth and easy to play it is amazing! I knew when I first plugged it into the Line 6 spider III at the store that it was for me ( Ihave the same amp). I was skeptical about a single pickup and no tone knob but I'm telling you it doesnt matter. The high output pick-up delivers such a brutal, withering sound that you will not be dissappointed. The neck is fast and easy to play and the string through bridge is awesome! I play with head phones on quite a bit and let me tell you, you can "feel" every note coming through the body. I will "Never" sell this guitar AND I will be trying out ALL the other BC Rich's I can find in the future. I know there are more expensive guitars out there and I think there is place for all things, I just wanted to tell people that, while this may not be the most expensive axe out there, It feels like it is. good luck and rock on.

Sweet Sweet Guitar

By Mansour R.

from Branchburg

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

I went looking for this guitar JUST to test it, not knowing if I would buy it just then, but right when I saw it and played I was amazed. I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone who is a beginner or plays hard or classic rock. this guitar basically says to me, rock on! And it surely sounds like that to. there is one thing I would like to add though, the top point(where your chest would be,while playing the guitar)goes hard into your chest if you lean on it too much, but if you don't and you play upright, you're good to go. with sound and style.

Its ok

By LamarreHero

from Chesapeake, Virginia

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

This was one of my first guitars, and I have to say that this is an ok guitar. There is nothing really special about this guitar other than that it looks cool. Thats probably the only reason that I bought the guitar in the first place. Within a year of owning this guitar I traded it in for a better one. I would recommend choosing to buy a better guitar from Ibanez, Fender, or Gibson instead of buying this guitar.

THIS IS BC RICH IS NOT WORTHY

By chris rodriguez

from CAPE CORAL ,FLORIDA

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

I have a bc rich like this but my bc rich they dont make anymore because this is the updated version of mine first off this guitar only has no pick up (mine has two) it does not have tone volume on the guitar (mine has tone volume on the guitar) you literally need five pedals to make it sound good (i only need one on my old version) i have seen bc riches styles and when you play this guitar its gonna make you think bc rich in a bad way. i think bc rich should take a stand and make better guitars. if you are gonna buy this bc rich wait a day and look a little maybe you might find a better bc rich

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

Crazy epic guitar, my buddy owns a Bc Rich Warbeast with 2 seymour duncans, and i bought this guitar, its powerful, the only bad thing is its top heavy, also it goes out of tune quickly, but it sounds just as good as a warbeast with seymour duncans!!! happy jamming

I like it

By Spaz0matic69

from Medford, MA

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

Well, I haven't been playing guitar for all that long, just slightly over a year, but I feel that this guitar is pretty good. I'm not sure what exactly qualifies as a "smooth" neck, but I think that it's fine. What it boils down to is that I just like the feel of the guitar and how it sounds. However, this guitar has had some problems. The input has gone out twice and when I first got it, the truss rod was messed up. So, I'm not an expert or anything, but I would say this guitar is at least a decent one and that it was definitely good for a beginner like me.

good guitar, but one flaw

By jhon tunet

from San fran ca

Comments about B.C. Rich Avenge SOB Electric Guitar:

this guitar is great. it was my xmass present and i love it. i love the rod bevel, i love the headstock, i love the shape. Some people complain thet its hard to play sitting down. i like to wedge the botom on my right leg and then its actually quite comftorble. the extra and bigger frets make it esier, i think, to find the frets but also make it dificult to play some of the harder riffs. My only big issue with it is the fact that with only one pickup, it buzzes really anoyingly (theres probably a name for that i just dont know it) so i end up turning the volume nob off when im not playing.
