B.C. Rich is a guitar manufacturer, founded by Bernardo Chavez Rico (hence B.C. Rich), whose electric and bass guitars are frequently used by metal musicians. Their guitars are known for their non-standard shapes and for also being the gnarliest guitars there are, which is one of the reasons for their popularity among heavy metal musicians. Another interesting fact is that nearly all of their guitars include dual humbucker pickups and 24 jumbo frets.
