The B.C. Rich Metal Master Series features Generation 1 & 2 tribal design influenced by Kerry’s tattoos.

The Warlock Blade’s non-traditional body shape uses Agathis wood, which, like ash or alder, is firm and resonant, offering great sustain and a focused midrange at an affordable price.

Most of B.C. Rich’s body styles employ a beveled edge around the shape, including this one. In many ways bevels on a top are similar to facets on a cut stone. They catch the light and reflect at different angles, giving the instrument more of a three dimensional look. Some of the B.C. Rich top bevels are extreme and wide while others are subtle and narrow. Occasionally the shape of the instrument is accented by painting the bevels a contrasting color.

On this instrument a neck is bolted on with 4 screws to the body. This construction offers some added flexibility in the instruments adjustment and provides the option to change the neck in the future.

The Warlock Blade features a rosewood neck with an ultra-playable natural satin finish, and a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with white pearloid dot inlays. The deep cutaways make access to higher notes a breeze, so you can shred away in that upper register without any problems.

B.C. Rich designed their BDSM (Broad Dynamic Sonically Matched) humbucking pickups to provide a solid sound and to be durable while delivering high output. This means that the pickup is designed to reproduce a wide range of frequencies accurately (broad dynamic). Then they are tested and matched in pairs (Neck and Bridge) by their inherent individual and signature tonal and output characteristics to give a solidly balanced tone (sonically matched).

Finally, the Warlock Blade features a wrap-around, adjustable bridge with string-thru-body design, for serious sustain and solid tuning, and the chrome die-cast tuners seal the deal.
