The information contained in this article is correct according to the UK distributor for the brand. I was unable to get a reply directly from BC Rich themselves.

You are almost certainly going to need to special order any of these guitars as stock seems to be very thin on the ground at the time of writing. The UK distributor did tell me that there had been some hold-ups at the factory.

For each guitar, I have shown a couple of example models, but keep in mind that for most of these, additional finish and bridge options are also available.
