B.C. Rich USA ST-III Gloss Fire Engine Red Finish Electric Guitar

Condition: Used - Excellent+
B.C. Rich USA ST-III Gloss Fire Engine Red Finish Electric Guitar
Our Price: $ 569.99



Body: the top, back, and sides have some light surface scratches on the lacquer--there is very little buckle rash; there are some small, but noticeable dings in the finish that can be found on the top, back, and sides, plus there is rather obvious dings into the wood on the back edge of the body about 1-1/2" from the jackplate; the tremolo cover and electronics cover both show some light scratches from typical use

Neck, Fretboard, and Headstock: the fretboard looks virtually flawless; the back of the neck looks almost flawless except for a couple of small dings on and around the neck heel; the front facing of the headstock has some light scratches on it and the very end point has a couple of small dings

Action and Playability: the action is nice and the neck is straight, plus the truss rod functions flawlessly

Frets: light wear, but there are a couple of very tiny grooves just starting to form on the first couple of frets, however there is no fret out and it will still be a long while before any fret work will need to be done

Hardware: everything looks great, but it should be noted that the tuners on this guitar are probably not original

Electronics: all functions flawlessly

Includes: electric guitar with tremolo arm (case/gig bag are not included)

This American made B.C. Rich sounds as red hot as it looks!  This ST-III is a superstrat with all the necessary trimmings...HSS configuration, Licensed Floyd Rose locking tremolo system, and 3 x mini-toggles to turn each pickup on and off at will.  Emerging in the late '80s and claiming notoriety thanks to such shredders like Vivian Campbell of Dio and Def Leppard fame, and C.C. DeVille of Poison, the ST-III had (and still is) proven its worthiness among the heavy metal/hard rock crowd!  Complete with a fiery fire engine red finish and chrome Ping tuners (likely not the original tuners), this B.C. Rich ST-III is ready to become your go to axe in times of shred!
