B.C. Rich took great care in designing the Chuck Schuldiner Tribute–a Stealth guitar that can proudly represent Chuck’s legacy and the indelible mark he left on the death metal genre. Chuck played several B.C. Rich guitar models throughout his short but meaningful career. The most recognized of them had to be his black single pickup, neck-through Stealth guitar. In purposeful style, Chuck laid down many creative and ferocious riffs on his B.C. Rich guitars that launched him into metal icon status.
This guitar is in exceptional condition and is amazingly playable with killer tonality and slick, fast action. It’s no wonder Chuck made these his go to guitars, this plays just like a Gibson Flying V, but with even an easier accessibility and balance and a kick-ass, master player feel. There are some light signs of handling and play but no issues, mods, repairs or any other nonsense. It has some wear spots on the back and a few dings on the top but nothing that stands out. If a dose of spiritual healing is what you need, keep your individual thought patterns on course for a symbolic experience that will make you more human than human.
B.C. Rich is known as one of the pioneers in neck through construction. They use it on many of their guitars, because it provides the best possible sustain, resonance, comfort and access to higher frets. Neck-through has long been considered the premium construction method for high-end guitars. This construction starts with a long piece (or pieces) of premium North American maple. That piece runs from the tip of the headstock to the strap button on the opposite end of the guitar. This means that the headstock, fingerboard, pickups and bridge all are mounted to this single sound foundation. Sonically it is a difference you can hear. The neck-through construction also allows more of the body and neck to be cut away at the neck joint, which provides comfort no bolt-on or set-neck could offer. You will find the neck through feature on all top of the line B.C. Rich models.
The X2N is a “take-no-prisoners, in-your-face” humbucker. Twin, wide-bar pole pieces give the X2N a nasty, dangerous look — and rightly so. Our highest gain pickup was created to push tube amps into total overdrive. Put one in the bridge position for a powerful jolt to the voltage the amp sees from your guitar. The result is a sound that can only be described as blistering. The magnetic field of the X2N is very powerful and focused. It captures the character of whichever guitar it’s in. If your guitar is warm sounding, the X2N will act like a sledgehammer. A bright-sounding guitar will go into total scream mode. And the X2N still has versatility: single-coil and series-parallel modes are particularly effective, because the X2N pickup’s power gives these sounds more authority than is possible with weaker humbuckers.
When you think of top shelf players who never let anything get in their way, Chuck Shuldiner is at the top of the list. From the earliest days of Death to his work with Shannon Hamm in Control Denied, Chuck epitomized everything we love about Metal Music. Chuck was true to himself, as an artist who was driven, dedicated, and never compromised his art or the contributions and talents of the many great players he performed with.
