This year, B.C. Rich introduces the Eagle bass shape to their NJ bass line. According to Gary Baker, Divisional Manager for B.C. Rich guitars, "This particular shape was semi-retired for a few years in the import line, however to due the greatly increased requests for this shape, we feel that it is time that the Eagle fly back into the B.C.
