    Bc rich is still creating well made basses with some unique designs and premium sellingpoints. So some Great players use them. Maybe you Can add one or two?

  4. I'm fairly certain that Blackie Lawless of W.A.S.P. played a Warlock at some point.

    The guy in Spinal Tap. I guess BC Rich is still in business, but they certainly aren't "out there" these days, are they?

    Damn...never would have guessed that was a Mockingbird. The upper and lower horns did not look like it at all. Thanks Web Troll!

    Bernard Edwards used to play one live with Chic, but apparentely never in the studio (he favored a P and, most of the time, a MM Stingray)
