For several years, I've owned and gigged a B.C. Rich Warlock shaped 4 string. My curiosity has caused me to try and determine a general time of manufacture. Internet search has not provided much except maybe early 80s or so, but not real sure about that, and made in Japan. Here's what it is. Red with rosewood board and black hardware. P type split pu's with volume and tone controls. Headstock has B.C. Rich and N. J. Series. Neck plate has B.C. Rich, serial #B 9547, LA California, U.S.A. Any information at all will be appreciated.
