On The Unofficial B.C.Rich serial number Archive,we have a ST III g***ar serialed BC118xx which was reported to have been made in 1986
However,dating bolt on BCR's is damn near impossible,because,nobody at the factory really cared enough to record them,and the neckplates were just grabbed randomly from a large box on the assembly table,never in numerical order
Yes,Maple is heavy as hell,and a bright tone wood
I have a Gunslinger bass,same as the ST,but with a reverse headstock,and that's heavy,but not as heavy as my neck thru ST bass
