Shatter perceptions the way only a B.C. Rich Warlock can with matchless Warlock style and edgy sound. The B.C. Rich Warlock Bass digs deep with an agathis body, 34"-scale bolt-on maple neck, 24-fret rosewood fingerboard, and B.C. Rich split-coil pickup. Chrome-finish hardware includes an adjustable bridge and B.C. Rich die-cast machine heads. Also has single volume and tone controls. Add to this the Widow headstock and you have a bass guitar which looks the part.
This BC Rich Warlock bass uses a classic bolt-on construction. On these instruments, a neck (typically maple) is bolted on with 4 screws to the body. This construction offers some added flexibility in the instruments adjustment and provides the option to change the neck in the future.
All B.C. Rich imported bass guitars are equipped with either passive or active EQ B.C. Rich bass pickups. The passive versions are black P-style pickups and have open face pole pieces. These factory B.C. Rich pickups give a good solid response across the bass spectrum eliminating unwanted muddy undertones. The B.C. Rich active EQ bass pickups are still P-style, but they have a black sealed smooth top. With the active EQ circuit (9 volt battery required), the clarity and attack are boosted. The center detent tone pots give the player a wider range of sweeping tone control to provide the maximum low end clarity and power.
The Warlock body employs a beveled edge around the shape. In many ways, bevels on a top are similar to facets on a cut stone. They catch the light and reflect at different angles giving the instrument more of a three dimensional look. Some of the B.C. Rich top bevels are extreme and wide while others are subtle and narrow. Occasionally the shape of the instrument is accented by painting the bevels a contrasting color.
