BC Rich Left Handed Guitars 2011

BC Rich are one of the more distinctive guitar brands around today, thanks to their edgy and eye-catching designs.  The company was founded in 1969 by the late Bernardo Chavez Rico.  The majority of BC Rich guitars are assembled in China, although a small number of hand-built USA models are created at the custom shop in Kentucky.

Unfortunately for left handed guitar players, BC Rich are one of a small handful of guitar companies who no longer make regular production runs of lefty guitars.  However, as is the case with companies such as PRS, BC Rich will still produce smaller limited runs of guitars as long as the demand is there or if a dealer orders enough stock.  You will no doubt also still be able to find older models in select stores as well.

So as with the PRS page, this one will be a little different.  We will update this article with information on new limited run announcements as we hear about them.  If you are aware of any yourselves, please leave a comment below!  Here are the models we are currently aware of, due this year.

BC Rich : Left Handed Guitar Models

Time for another look at some more juicy left handed guitars.  This week we’re checking out the rather beastly BC Rich’s 2010 range of leftys.

Unfortunately BC Rich are one of the few brands who don’t really provide much in terms of left handed guitar options so this should be a fairly short article.  Although the mockingbird is a great design and personally I think the Exotic model is gorgeous we can’t help but wish for a better selection.
