    If it's anything like my Platinum Series Warlock was, it's basically a guitar-shaped piece of crap with strings on it.

    What's wierd is that I really like the BC Rich NJ Classic guitars, and should have kept the one I had a few years ago...

    No, it's the opposite, Platinum are the bottom of the line, the Platinum and Bronze series are garbage, save your money.

    Cheers,

    Alryt, so hw does the heirarchy go?
    Actually in india there r nt of much B.C.Rich players n none of the major stores deal with B.C.Rich, it ws my frend who told me its gud n i asked him to bring it fr me, i hv nvr played a B.C.Rich myself... with reference to indian currency it comes quite costly, i was getting it a bit cheaper by evading the customs n all... So widin the budget the other options i've at hand are ibanez rg321, cort vx flying v.... Will B.C.Rich fare better then them? N i ws planning to get EMG actives, so if the problem ws the B.C.stock pikups, dat can b overlooked... pls pour in a few more critical suggestions...

    Those are both better than the Virgin for sure.
