The B.C. Rich Assassin FX6 highlights the return of the ASM shape and features full, real abalone multi-ply binding on the body, neck and headstock, flame maple cap, custom revolver control knobs and an ebony fretboard adorned with an abalone vine inlay. The tonal qualities are driven by high quality Rockfield SWV pickups and a tune-o-matic style string-through the body bridge.
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 a long piece (or pieces) of premium North American maple. That piece runs from the tip of the Assassin FX6's 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 deeper cutaways at the neck joint which provides comfort no bolt-on or set-neck could offer.
Rockfield Pickups - Mafia
The use of a ceramic magnet gives any pickup extra power due to the increased magnetic field they provide. This feature makes the Mafia guitar pickups produce a hotter and thicker tone that's really aggressive and full. The increased low end, thick mids and in your face highs is what rock and roll was built on! Balanced and full of sustain this pickup is a great representation of its namesake, a truly intimidating killer.
The neck version of the Mafia pickup is just as full sounding as the bridge position, without taking away from what has already been accomplished. Very minor modifications to the overall design and design concept of this pickup gives it punchy, bold tone with the same aggressive characteristics as the bridge version. A tad brighter with a little less output really takes this pickup into the smooth and warm realm of the tonal spectrum. All while maintaining that balanced bite and in your face aggressive tone that the Mafia is known for!
Deep Arched Top
A deep arched top is used on the B.C. Rich Assassin FX6. The deep arch is achieved by increasing the body center by approximately 5/8" and then gently sloping the arch toward the side of the instrument and leveling out just as the slope reaches the edge. A deep arch top when applied to a B.C. Rich shape gives an air of elegance and sophistication.
