Limited Edition 40th Anniversary Guitars Now Available

Mockingbird 40th AnniversaryJUNE 29, 2009, HEBRON, KY. – Commemorating its 40th Anniversary as America’s premier builder of uniquely shaped, lifestyle-driven electric guitars, B.C. Rich® proudly announces a new series of handcrafted instruments to mark the milestone. The special guitars are a tribute to models originally developed by company founder Bernardo (“Bernie”) Rico and are limited to a production run of 40 guitars per model.

The four Handcrafted Anniversary Guitars represent the first original designs offered by B.C. Rich: the Seagull, Eagle, Mockingbird and Bich. Each will receive a 40th Anniversary commemorative logo on the back of the headstock, a special serial number and certificate of authenticity.

All Anniversary instruments utilize Neck-through-Body Koa wood construction, a feature rarely seen before B.C. Rich came on the scene back in ‘69. This method maximizes sustain and helps maintain the long-term structural stability of the instrument. Bodies are crafted of solid Koa with Maple accent stripes (“stringers”) on two models and utilize DiMarzio® Dual Sound pickups.

Additional design details include the classic B.C. Rich Diamond fingerboard inlays (Snowflake design on the Seagull), Grover® Super Rotomatic™ tuners and vintage Cal Rad knobs.

“The 40th Anniversary Series lets us pay tribute to our original designs with these retro-inspired models,” said Rock Clouser, product manager for B.C. Rich. “We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure the distinctive look and style of the originals.”

B.C. Rich Anniversary Series instruments each have a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $5,399.99.
