B.C. Rich has announced that its brand new NJ Series guitars, which feature the new Floyd Rose SpeedLoader bridge, are now shipping to its dealers worldwide. The updated NJ line is joined by new Platinum Pro and Exclusive models, as well as a variety of other new guitars.
B.C. Rich has upgraded its NJ Series guitar line by providing the new SpeedLoader system as original equipment on eight models. The integrated SpeedLoader bridge and accompanying string design allows a string to be changed in a matter of a few seconds by eliminating the need for tuning pegs, wrenches, clipping string ends and string stretching. The company's classic Widow headstock design no longer sports tuning pegs on these models, as only fine-tuners are needed on the bridge itself.
B.C. Rich is also shipping new set-neck and neck-through versions of its EM1 guitar. The Maple set-neck features an arched, AA+ Maple top on a Mahogany body, 5-ply body binding, rosewood fingerboard, two chrome-covered humbucking pickups and chrome hardware. The Mahogany neck-through model provides the same arched top and Mahogany body with an ebony fingerboard and gold hardware. Both models offer a classy, more traditional look.
The brand new NJ Classic Series is now in production. These guitars capture the essence of 1970s-era B.C. Rich guitars, but at prices most players can afford. Two models kick off the new series: The classic Mockingbird and Bich feature Mahogany body wings, Walnut stringers, Ebony fingerboards, Cloud inlays, AA Quilted Veneer Maple Tops and an attractive Antique Natural finish.
Also arriving in stores are the new B.C. Rich Platinum Pro guitars. This tier, augmenting the company's best-selling Platinum Series, offers upgraded features including licensed Floyd Rose tremolo bridges, necks and headstocks that are painted to match the body finishes, and new Black hardware.
