So to give a little background on this guitar - the passion for the Warlock II goes back to when I was about 12 years old. I remember looking up and seeing the following poster on a music store wall:
I thought it was the most metal - coolest looking guitar I had ever seen. In hindsight - the skull is about the cheesiest thing I've ever seen but the guitar gets me going like it always did even today.
So for the next three years or so I threw a crap load of news papers and saved my money and bought this:
A 1984 USA made BC Rich Warlock - but not the II. I got caught up with all the little switches and the Kahler and strayed from the II but still had that poster in the back of my mind.
So last year - The BC Rich Players forum and Beat Street Music commissioned a limited edition Warlock II and I was lucky enough to grab one of those - a refresher pic. of that guitar:
I love the guitar - no problems at all - good quality - sustain for days but it has a 25.5" scale and not the original 24-5/8" that most of the old BC's used.
Which brings me to today's NGD - BC Rich Warlock II with the original 24-5/8" scale.
Proper tool for opening:
WTF - what is that :
I've got the tool : The mandolin of death
crap not working either - I know - get ready to be smited (it that even a word?)
The wall of Warlock:
I'm guessing there will be negative comments about: (pick one)
All of the above
I love it - I know it's not exactly the Warlock II in the picture with the cheesy skull and I know it's MIK and not the USA. It just reminds me of being 12 and looking up at that poster and I'm just grinning ear to ear.
