Overview

The B.C. Rich Warbeast features a maple bolt-on neck; solid, string-through, beveled basswood body; Son of Beast style headstock; a pristine rosewood fretboard with no inlay; and 2 BDSM covered humbuckers.

What do you get when a ruthless Warlock picks a vile Beast to bear its spawn? A Warbeast of course! The twisted minds at B.C. Rich combined the ultra-in-your-face upper and lower horns from the Beast with the more comfortable rear of a Warlock - there's a joke in there somewhere... The Warbeast however, is not joking! Ripping the heads off of lesser axes - the Warbeast is on the prowl.

An affordable and aggressive electric guitar starts here! This BC Rich Warbeast delivers heaps of profoundly malevolent features that all entry-level axe slingers in training will hold in high regard.

Bolt-on Construction
The Warbeast uses a classic Bolt-on construction. The maple neck is bolted on with 4 screws to the body. This construction offers some added flexibility in the instruments adjustment and provides the option to change the neck in the future.

B.C. Rich BDSM Pickups
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. That simply means 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).

Beveled Top
The Warbeast guitar employs 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.

good guitar

By Rockstar_85

from El Paso, TX

Comments about B.C. Rich Warbeast Electric Guitar:

It's a pretty good guitar besides the fact that you can only use it for metal. The only difference between it and a b.c.rich warlock is the humbuckers. The war beast looks like it is uncomfortable to play sitting down but trust me it isn't! It is also a good looking guitar

AHHHHMAZING!!!

By Skatellica

from New Jersey

Comments about B.C. Rich Warbeast Electric Guitar:

i got this guitar about 5-6 months back for my birthday. i had no experience what so ever. this guitar was great for such case. it looked GREAT and all my friends loved it. its inexpensive yet better than ANY other guitar you can get at this price. i just threw EMG 81/85s in it, and the sound blew me away. as i said, ive been playing for about half a year, and im already rockin out at gigs. if i need a guitar that wont burn a hole in your pocket, but sounds like on of those expensive ones, get this.

Good guitar for price

By Matt Johnson

from Wilmington ohio

Comments about B.C. Rich Warbeast Electric Guitar:

This guitar is a pretty good buy. Obviously you ultimately get what u pay for however i have had this guitar for 3 months now. I have had no fret buzzing thus far. For the most part it stays well in tune. Pickups deliever good quality tone. Comfortable and light weight. I did however have to ajust the action when i got it because it was slightly low. Overall a good buy

Execellent

By Aerospace274

from Mankato, MN

Comments about B.C. Rich Warbeast Electric Guitar:

Excellent guitar for the price. Overall, has okay tone with the stock pickups, It stays in tune fairly well, going out every now and then, but it's not that hard to retune. As far as sitting with it and playing, it's very comfortable,but I normally stand when I play. It feels great to play, the neck is well made and has low, comfortable action with no buzzing going on. It can maintain sound even with very high bends. And, obviously, it's made for metal. Just by looks, you can see this guitar is for metal players. ( Not exactly a jazz styled guitar, if you know what I mean. :) )It's fun to play and it looks great. Overall, I give this guitar 5 stars.

Amazing

By Kyle Koshman

from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan

Comments about B.C. Rich Warbeast Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar since early October. And from the moment that I took it out of it's box and played my first note, I was in love. It's so comfortable to play, standing up or sitting down. And such a good guitar for the price. Great guitar to spend some more money on adding better equipment into it. With mine I've added a EMG set of pickups, the same set Zakk Wylde uses on all his guitar and the next thing I want to do is put a Floyd Rose or signiture Kerry King tremolo system into it.

Good guitar

By Justin

from Vista, Claifornia

Comments about B.C. Rich Warbeast Electric Guitar:

Nice guitar. Played it twice at guitar center and if you put heavy body pickups on it, it would be a perfect guitar. It has a mean look to it and a floyd rose wouldnt be half bad either. I noticed no fret buzzing however the neck isnt low enough for me because I like to play fast. If it had a floyd rose, locking nut, faster neck, and was more comfortable to play, I would buy it in a second.

Good but not very diverse

By Ted

from El Paso

Comments about B.C. Rich Warbeast Electric Guitar:

This is a good guitar. It sounds pretty good with distortion, but it seems like you can't play much other then punk or metal. It's cheap and a good beginner/practice guitar. I'd recommend it to anyone who's a beginner but wants something better then a squier/first act guitar.

pretty decent

By Tyler

from Brooklyn Park, MN

Comments about B.C. Rich Warbeast Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar a couple years ago and its a great begging guitar for metal players and that sort of stuff. but some problems of this guitar is that it just goes out of tune quite a bit so if that doesn't annoy you then there will be no problem. also the body shape sometimes digs into your chest if you play sitting down.
