B.C. Rich took great care in designing the Chuck Schuldiner Tribute--a Stealth guitar that can proudly represent Chuck's legacy and the indelible mark he left on the death metal genre. Chuck played several B.C. Rich guitar models throughout his short but meaningful career. The most recognized of them had to be his black single pickup, neck-through Stealth guitar. In purposeful style, Chuck laid down many creative and ferocious riffs on his B.C. Rich guitars that launched him into metal icon status. Now it's your turn to play tribute to a legend. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this tribute guitar goes directly to the family of Chuck Schuldiner.

Neck-Through Construction

B.C. Rich is known as one of the pioneers in neck through construction. They use 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 a long piece (or pieces) of premium North American maple. That piece runs from the tip of the headstock to the strap button on the opposite 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. The neck-through construction also allows more of the body and neck to be cut away at the neck joint, which provides comfort no bolt-on or set-neck could offer. You will find the neck through feature on all top of the line B.C. Rich models.

DiMarzio X2N

The X2N is a "take-no-prisoners, in-your-face" humbucker. Twin, wide-bar pole pieces give the X2N a nasty, dangerous look-and rightly so. Our highest gain pickup was created to push tube amps into total overdrive. Put one in the bridge position for a powerful jolt to the voltage the amp sees from your guitar. The result is a sound that can only be described as blistering. The magnetic field of the X2N is very powerful and focused. It captures the character of whichever guitar it's in. If your guitar is warm sounding, the X2N will act like a sledgehammer. A bright-sounding guitar will go into total scream mode. And the X2N still has versatility: single-coil and series-parallel modes are particularly effective, because the X2N pickup's power gives these sounds more authority than is possible with weaker humbuckers. Recommended For: Bridge position on solid body guitars. Tech Talk: The X2N works in any situation where maximum power and overdrive is required. The dual blade polepieces create a very even, balanced sound. The X2N works best in combination with higher-output pickups. It can also combine well with the Fast Track 1, Chopper and Pro Track. The split option is very effective, because a single X2N coil has similar performance parameters to many Strat-type pickups.

Beveled Top

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.

Definate buy!

By Vincent Bautista

from New York

Comments about B.C. Rich Chuck Schuldiner Tribute Electric Guitar:

i purchased this guitar a few months ago and it is prabably the best guitar ive ever played. the fret board is confortable and definatly made for fast playing. the widened out fretboard toward the bridge plays a huge role in shredding and soloing. the light body is also a plus! its body is kinda small compared to other guitars but you will get used to it. the pickup is a monster! it creates very clear and heavy sounding tones i dont really recomend this guitar if your not going to play some type of metal. My friend comments on playing it once saying "Vinny this guitar is way too metal for me" i highly recommend the purchase of this guitar its a beautifull peace of art in dedication to chuck Shuldiner RIP

Chuck Will Draw Out Your Metal Beast

By Chuck S

from Indy

Comments about B.C. Rich Chuck Schuldiner Tribute Electric Guitar:

With this awe inspiring instrument. Not for funk, blues, pop, country or folk. Go get a Strat or Tele for that. But if metal is your passion, like Chucks, then this is your choice. The pickup is the most powerful available. The shape is very comfortable standing or sitting. It sustains like crazy. It is lightweight. The fretboard is like butter under your fingers. Best of all, it just looks mean. Plug into a tube amp an you won't need a distortion pedal. I can't put it down.

I can't put it down!

By Robert Dukarm

Comments about B.C. Rich Chuck Schuldiner Tribute Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar for many reasons. The Dimarzio X2N is super powerful and full sounding yet clear. The volume control has a "hard" action that I find very nice for cleaning up palm mutes just right and it is positioned far from where my pinky can hit it by accident. It has what I call a "brown ebony" fingerboard (the "onyx" color ebony trees have been devastated over the years). Worry not, it looks really beautiful and plays ultra fast and comfortably. I believe it has a 16" radius neck which makes bending notes a pleasure and is further complimented by the 24 5/8" scale length; you can achieve super shredding action as well. The only obvious flaws are the positioning of the lower strap button (makes the guitar neck heavy) and the jack placement which makes playing in a classical position uncomfortable. Rest assured that I am barely phased by those flaws when I consider the guitar as a whole. IMO the best guitar I've owned and also one of the least expensive. R.I.P. Chuck Schuldiner, not only did you leave behind a lifetime of inspiration, you also left behind this awesome axe as well.
