    i recently acquired a BC Rich Bitch. Previous owner claims it is a 1983, however i have my doubts. Serial number starts with an 87. Also the pickups were changed to active EMG pickups. Anybody have any idea on the age of this bass starting with this serial number, and possibly what pickups should have been in a bass of this era?
  2. Um, that would be Bich. :roflmao:
    The 5-digit serial numbers were supposed to start with the first two numbers being the year produced. As indicated by Dolphin Music the serial numbers got ahead of the year because of the amount of instruments they were producing. So, your instrument could be a couple years older than what the serial indicates.
