    Circa 1979 B. C. Rich Bich Natural Solid Body Electric Guitar, Serial # 81583. Clean and original Rich Bich 10-string guitar. Just like on a standard 12-string guitar, the high E and B strings are doubled and the G and D strings are paired with octaves, however the low E and A strings are single. All working electronics but will need cleaning. Moderate fret wear to original frets and some light divots in the fingerboard at 2nd fret. A few minor dings and scuffs to the original finish. The serial number indicates 1981 but B.C Rich serial numbers were off by a year or two by the early-mid 80's.This exact guitar was featured in the Pomegranate 2012 Classic Guitars calendar with text by Robert Shaw- month of October. 8.2 lbs. Comes in a heavy-duty Anvi-style custom flight case. There appears to have been a pick holder stuck to the top of the guitar at one point, evidence above the bridge pickup. Original hard case included. Condition: Very Good.
