The B.C. Rich Stranger Things "Eddie's" Limited-Edition Replica and Inspired USA Custom Shop Warlock is a striking replica of the guitar featured in season four of the Netflix hit series, Stranger Things. As the award-winning sci-fi-horror-ensemble drama takes place in the 1980s, this angular, shred-approved Warlock is the perfect “guest star” to represent the aggressive rock and metal riffs favored by the teens in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana. But the Stranger Things Warlock USA is far more than set dressing for a television series. Armed with two made-in-USA humbuckers—a DiMarzio D Activator X (neck) and a DiMarzio Super Distortion (bridge)—this mean machine is designed to bust through a band mix, recording date or jam session with tones that go from belligerently beautiful to full-on raging. The flat-mount Kahler 2300 Series Professional Tremolo Guitar Bridge System is perfect for launching screaming dive bombs, bewitching warbles and trance-like trills. When you need to unleash a relentless barrage of ferocious licks powerful enough to seal up an inter-dimensional gateway, the Warlock’s Shredzilla Ultra Slim Contour neck provides a smooth and unencumbered runway for your swift fingers. The B.C. Rich Stranger Things Warlock USA definitely struts an ‘80s attitude, but it also possesses the ergonomics and tonal firepower to create supernatural textures for any style of hard-hitting music.
Styled to Survive the Upside Down
When you’re peering into the frightening expanse of an alternate dimension, you’re going to want an equally formidable presence at your side. The sharp, claw-like cutaways and harpoon headstock of the “Eddie’s” Limited-Edition Warlock USA immediately alert demons, Soviet agents, malevolent scientists and government bureaucrats that you mean business. Whether you choose the black or red crackle-paint finish, this is a guitar that commands attention.
Mighty Enough to Fight the Demogorgon
A blood-thirsty Demogorgon can’t be pummeled into submission with weak pickups. Lucky for you, the B.C. Rich Stranger Things Warlock USA is armed with two very potent, made-in-USA humbuckers—a DiMarzio D Activator X in the neck position, and a DiMarzio Super Distortion in the bridge position. The D Activator-X produces a focused attack in the upper mid-range frequencies and an overall tone that’s assertive, wide open and appropriately savage (we are battling hell spawn, after all). Developed in the early 1970s, the fabled Super Distortion is the OG of high-output pickups, and it uncorks ballsy mids, massive lows and resolute highs. Both pickups clean up nicely when you cut back your guitar’s volume or reduce your attack on the strings, but when you need to bring on the brute force, these DiMarzio marvels can deliver it in abundance.
Built for Psychokinetic Speed
The Stranger Things Warlock USA’s Shredzilla Ultra Slim Contour maple neck ensures you can comfortably launch your fastest runs to dazzle friends and foes alike. The firm grain of the ebony fingerboard adds to the playability by aiding smooth and swift finger movements. Your mind-over-matter skills will rival those of Stranger Things’ telekinetic Eleven, as what you envision in your mind will immediately be conjured through your fingers.
Advanced Weaponry to Defeat the Mind Flayer
You’ll need more than just speed to vanquish the Mind Flayer’s hordes from the Upside Down, and the flat-mount Kahler 2300 Series Professional Tremolo Guitar Bridge System adds a number of sweet tricks to your arsenal. You can freeze adversaries in their tracks with feral dive bombs, mesmerize them with subtle pitch fluctuations, or startle them with alien gurgles, wails and shrieks. Go as wild with the tremolo attacks as you need to, and the locking nut and bridge will keep your tuning sweet and precise.
And a Warlock Saves the World
The B.C. Rich Stranger Things "Eddie's" Limited-Edition Replica and Inspired USA Custom Shop Warlock is a celebration of the Netflix series, the iconic B.C. Rich brand and guitarists who love to shred. It even comes with a custom hardshell “Hellfire Club” case included—a nod to the Hawkins High School Dungeons & Dragons club portrayed in Stranger Things. But this guitar is no mere souvenir of a pop-culture phenomenon. The Stranger Things Warlock USA is made to be played, and while its looks and features veer more toward hard rock and metal than traditional jazz or pop, it’s a guitar that feels good in your hands, produces great tones and takes no prisoners.
