Overview

B.C. Rich has graced the NJ Deluxe Jr. V Electric Guitar with an ebony fretboard and full pearl binding on the headstock, neck and body. Want more? How about neck through construction, EMG pickups and a Floyd Rose Original tremolo

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.

EMG-81 (bridge position)

The EMG-81 is a high output pickup designed especially for the lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock and roll, or overdriving your amp, there's a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you're looking for exceptional qualities in a rock pickup, the EMG-81 is the one.

EMG-85 (neck position)

Although the EMG-85 has more measurable output than the 81, its frequency response and string interface are different. The 85 uses two Alnico magnet loaded coils with a wide aperture to maintain a beefy low end and a fatter top end. Because of a more natural tone, it works great as a rhythm and blues pickup because it has loads of output but isn't muddy.

Flat Top

Some of the B.C Rich shapes are offered with a flat top. The flat top styling gives a bold and pristine look to the edge of the instrument's shape. Usually when the flat top feature is used, B.C. Rich adds a stripe of single or multi-ply binding around the edge in a complementary color. The binding on a flat top finishes off the edge cleanly and gives a sleek and clean look to the guitar.

Still awesome.

By Brian MacDonald

from Gainesville,Fl

Comments about B.C. Rich NJ Deluxe Jr. V Electric Guitar:

I have a '10 DLX JVR, (before the return of the NJ/NT, etc. models)and have logged hundreds of hours on it, soaked it in sweat, a little blood now and again (hey, if you play true metal or any extreme music, it is bound to happen occasionally), and a few stray beer spills. It has been on stages, in band rooms, and has been used to record many tracks, in multiple bands. The bottom line is that it is the perfect all around package...Best of the best electronics and trem. system, and one of the best neck/fretboard setups in the industry. This guitar can be set up to have amazingly low action without buzz by any good tech., and it plays as fast as you can go. There is a reason why some of the most respected names in rock and metal swear by the B.C., and if you choose to join the gang, you will probably change your mind about what a metal guitar should be. I have played B.C.s since the early '90s, and own two at the moment that together are my main axes in my current band. ( I recently bought a deluxe NJ Warbeast to serve as my "other" tuning guitar. In my opinion, B.C. Rich and Jackson are the two fastest necks to be had, and to offer a little perspective, my U.S.A. built RR1 gets less playtime than the JRV. I don't know of a better metal guitar anywhere near this price-point, and these guitars will put most of the other companies models that cost 2 or 3 times more to shame.

Comments about B.C. Rich NJ Deluxe Jr. V Electric Guitar:

I was skeptical at first when looking at this guitar. Yeah, it has an original floyd, neck through, ebony, fully bound etc etc., but if the materials and construction are done poorly, it won't matter. I've owned several ESPs and Jacksons over the years, and had yet to find the perfect guitar for me.

I tooka chance and pulled the trigger on the BC Rich Jr V Deluxe. My expectations were exceeded by the quality of the materials and how well it was put together. The guitar is goreous, solid, well built and plays like a dream. I originally bought that black one with the reverse headstock, and have since bought one in white. They're my two main stage guitars now.

This V body is a bit slimmer than Jackson King V's or ESP V's, and it has way better playability and access to the upper frets. It is the most comfortable V style guitar I have ever played. It hangs balanced on a strap perfectly, stays in tune even when cranking on the Floyd, and harmonics ring out with low action.

The only thing is that it doesn't come with a case, and that is an inconvenience if you gig out a lot. You'll have to buy a case seperately, but even then this guitar is still a steal. It slaughters anything in the same price range from ESP, Jackson, Schecter, Ibanez, etc.

I had never owned a BC Rich guitar, and had my doubts for a guitar with such nice specs for this price, but was blown away and now own two. I amost never write reviews, but I love these guitars. You will too.

Comments about B.C. Rich NJ Deluxe Jr. V Electric Guitar:

Great craftmanship, a solid Floyd Rose tremolo, a slimmer V body profile than ESP or Jackson, great tone, and easy playability for a V make this ax a true winner for BC Rich. Had to level the FR, and I use lighter gauge strings, so I had to do some setup work, which was easy but took a little while. I changed one thing, just for my tonal preference. I took the EMG 85 out of the neck position, moved the EMG 81 from bridge to the neck, and put an EMG 81x in the bridge position. The 81 in the neck position still has great bass response and has more clarity than the 85. the 81x is also a great pickup. The binding goes completely around the neck, headstock, and body and is absolutely stunning. Great price, too, from Musician's Friend. They keep coming out with great instruments/ amps at tremendous savings, just check on the website often!

Great Buy

By ProgDeth

from Gainesville, FL

Comments about B.C. Rich NJ Deluxe Jr. V Electric Guitar:

When I was looking for my third guitar last summer, I decided to go with the expensive once, instead of buying a bunch of shitty ones, like I had before. Visually, the guitar is more stunning in person than online. The pearl binding accents the gloss black body and ebony fretboard perfectly. All black hardware is a basic rule, and looks good. The only problems with the features for me were the original tremolo and the flat top. My previous guitars were all carved top, making it slightly more comfortable to play, but it took me a day or so to get used to it so no big deal. I replaced the OFL for a low pro floyd, but that's my preference. The EMGs are great, which is good, since the first thing I usually do with a new guitar is switch out the stock pickups. The price tag was perfect for my budget,a dn I was also surprised that it is as good as it is, seeing as there are Jackson's twice as expensive with the same features, and this one even plays easier.

bc rich nj deluxe jr.v

By Dred Folin

from Atglen, Pa.

Comments about B.C. Rich NJ Deluxe Jr. V Electric Guitar:

Iam totally blown away by this guitar. It has a slim fast neck, very low action right out of the box, and the floyd stays in tune even with the heaviest dive bombs. I've played numerous bc rich guitars over the years and I must say it feels and plays better than my usa warlock that I had years ago. I have two other warlocks that have taken the back seat to this masterpiece. the one warlock is a new revenge that I took out of the case , played it for about5 minutes, then put it back in the case never to used again .I believe I'll be selling my warlocks and this is to be my number 1 for a long time. I also have an epiphone lp zakk wylde custom(korean)that is nothing compared to the jr.v deluxe. This axe is nearly flawless in every way. The only negative I can give about this guitar is that the finish seems a little thin. I already have some finish rubbing off the back of the base where the shape splits in the center. Campared to its sound, its playability and awesome hellagood looks ,its a small gripe for such a great guitar. If you have the coin, snatch this guitar up. You won't be disappointed!!

The real Son of the BEAST

By David Perez

from Puyallup, Washington

Comments about B.C. Rich NJ Deluxe Jr. V Electric Guitar:

I like a guitar that has comfort in the neck, has great output in the pickups, and looks like it was forged from the depths of the underworld. I can honestly say that this guitar brings it all. I bought this guitar a few weeks ago, although mine is a little different since mine has the signature widow headstock and diamond inlays on the fret board. The neck is very nice i wouldn't say its the best but it is very playable, unlike one of the Jackosons I picked up for the same price. I also own an old Ibanez Roadstar II edition (made in japan) and I think the neck on it is a little easier to play, but the neck on this guitar comes very close. The pickups on this beast of a guitar are pretty amazing. They are great for really heavy distortion and deafening volume. The bridge pickup has some really brutal output and is great for that crunchy metal chugging. The neck pickups are just as SICK but in their own way. When you wanna kick it into shred mode just flip the three way toggle switch to the bridge pickup and start rippin it up cause it sounds amazing. I find that this guitar can also do clean and sounds best when you use the neck pickup or both at the same time. This guitar has a really simple yet dark look to it that really catches the eye. The pearl against the onyx really makes it stand out amongst other guitars and either option you get for the headstock (widow, or slanted) has its part in making this guitar look very wicked. Overall if you want to play some really heavy music and look sinister while you do it I definitely recommend buying this guitar. Still not convinced? Stop into your local GC and try it out. Keep the music alive!

BANGING BC RICH

By Mike

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about B.C. Rich NJ Deluxe Jr. V Electric Guitar:

I originally was skeptical about the whole idea of buying a BC Rich, for years I've put down the brand for it's low end guitars, but this guitar is so great it;s not even funny. The guitar itself looks amazing. V shaped guitars have always been recognized to be some of the coolest looking guitars, and BC Rich really made this one look very simple but it just has an attractive look to it. The headstock has this cool Kirk Hammett feel to it and it really makes you look like a serious player. The sound is unlike any BC Rich I've played before. I HAVE and own played better guitars, but this one is really up there. I plugged it in to an 140 watt cabinet amp my friend owns and was highly impressed with the minimal buzz and almost zero feedback, compared to the Warlock I tried out (which in my opinion is terrible), this thing is godly. The Original Floyd Rose, absolutely superb, but that's given. The EMG's give a crisp and heavy sound but surprisingly can be pretty versatile, I wouldn't suggest playing this guitar clean though, just saying it's possible without sounding completely boring. I would suggest playing this on a decent amp, no 15 watt Line 6 Spiders. You can but, why when you can at least get a Mesa combo, which is what I use for when I'm just chilling around my house. The neck is comfortable, very easy to solo on. Big relief from my Schecter, which feels like a baseball bat (I'm a big fan of thin necks). The only complaint is that the guitar will get uncomfortable to use at times, but it's something that you can easily get use to. This is great for ANY type of metal, whether it be something mildly heavy like Black Album Metallica, or something mind blowing like Nile, this guitar will give you the bang for your buck. Seriously, get it.

Godly

By Vartanian

from San Pedro, CA

Comments about B.C. Rich NJ Deluxe Jr. V Electric Guitar:

This is the most underpriced and underated guitar I've ever seen. It is flawlessly crafted, theres nothing wrong with the cosmetics on mine, floyd rose is superb. Action was heavenly, plays like /butter. EMG 81/85 combo is amazing, the bridge is crisp and viscious. The bridge is warm and buttery. Input jack is conviently placed on the top wing, at a slight angle. Infinite sustain, a must have for any guitarist who can handle the V. The best $ i've ever spent.
