About This Listing

What a sweet guitar , on par with any PRS SE model !!!
And it only took me a month of searching to get all the correct info on her !!!  lol

She is a top-quality, hand-crafted made-in-Japan guitar, absolutely gorgeous and extremely well made.  I have been rocking out with her for a few weeks already and she sounds and plays terrific !!!  

Originally a Custom Shop only guitar, this 1996 BC Rich Signature Series Exclusive EM-1  Archtop TBS , designed by Bernie Rico himself , was made in Japan to the same exacting quality control standards as the USA Custom Shop models at a more affordable price ( still $700 + in '96 ). The attention to detail is evident in all of the small things I look for in a quality guitar,  ie: . frets are well levelled and the ends are all smooth , binding is tight and consistent, inlays show no fill around the rout etc ...
She has a 3 piece mahogany/maple body and a sweet Transparent Blue Sapphire flamed maple top, bound 22 fret rosewood fretboard with distinctive inlays, classic bound BC Rich 3 X 3 headstock set at a 15 degree angle, all combine together to give this girl that exquisite, lush look with a solid, balanced feel .
Powered by dual BC Rich BDSM humbuckers for a thick, warm neck tone and a real screamer at the bridge . Cleans chime and ring , and it won't take much for these powerful pups to kick your amp into overdrive !!!  Very versatile tones, all in all. Two volume, one tone , 3 way selector.
I have set her up- myself with some Ernie Ball Super Slinkys and she's a dream to play, the action is low , neck is straight , no buzz or dead frets and great tonal resonance from the body.  
Excellent aesthetic and playing condition , no major scratches , dents or chips, with just the usual shallow pick swirl and a slight ding at the very top of the headstock ( barely noticable)
Will be extremely well protected for shipping !
Please review my feedback for yourself , you'll see I do my best to make sure my customers are happy with their purchase and get what they expected , if not more . I only sell what I would gig with myself.
Thanks for shopping at Andy's Axedom !!!
