    I really hate to part with this one but I guess it is that time. I purchased this BC Rich Bich Bass on 04/14/13 and replaced some parts on her that needed to be replace. First to go was a rusty Schaller bridge with a black and gold Badass bridge the original which was not cheap to get and then the factory EMG pickups were in need of being replaced so they were as well as all the internal electronics and yes all EMG. Last I replaced the Grover tuners that came with it with a brand new set of wavy Grover tuners that someone had sitting in the original box untouched for years and they cost me some cash to get. All the work done on the bass was by a professional tech just so you know. The bass is neck through and the fret board is Ebony with abalone cloud inlays the paint job is a wonderful trans red. I am not sure what the wood is but this baby is got to be 10lbs to 13lbs I would say. The bass has couple of dings I photograph all of them the best I could there is about 4 the worst is on the back near the control plate. Has some light surface scratches but other then that it is in very good condition. I also want to point out that the Schaller bridge was a little longer then the badass bridge so you can see the indention that the Schaller bridge left at the beginning of the Badass bridge I did include a photograph and you are able to see it. This is a wonderful bass that BC Rich made and these are getting very difficult to find. I feel that the photos show the condition of the bass. Everything works and this baby sounds great. I take PayPal only and only use FEDEX to ship. I will consider reasonable offers. The bass does come with the case that is in the photos. Thank you for looking. No trades please I need room to walk!!!!

    UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!!
    Hey Everyone I want to give an update on the the case that comes with the bass. I have discovered that the latch in the middle likes to come un-done when walking around with the bass in the case so I am lowering the price by $75.00. My work around is to put your middle finger on the latch when carry it around. The price reduction should help if you decide to get another case for it. Just for the record this is the case that came with when I purchased it. thank you for looking!!!

    Beautiful. Was the headstock redone or were they all script lettered at that time?

  12. Cool bass, they always looked kind of "witchy" to me, and I like the thing that looks like a bullet hole in the case. ;)
