    I think it's easier to sit down and play the warlock, I've had two of that style, but I never got comfortable with a V

    I absolutely cannot get comfortable playing a Warlock. It looks cool as hell, but is just too cumbersome.

    Yeah, that's a bit open ended unless we know which Warlock you're looking at. In terms of purely body shape, I find the Warlock more comfortable to play, but I'm not a V guy like Dave is. But quality wise, totally depends which Warlock you're eyeing up. Some are worse than an RR3, some are better.

    Pre 90's warlocks are awesome. USA Jacksons are awesome. I have one of each!
    But JS series jacksons and newer low end warlocks are pretty hurting guitars IMO.

    I own three Warlocks and a V based on the RR.

    Just to emphasize what others said.

    BC Rich quality varies wildly from low end to custom shop. Low end is just that unfortunately. But once you get into some of the recent MIK's around 700-1000 price point they are quite good IMO. You either need to play this guitar or clearly know what you are buying.

    I have no issue with comfort sitting or standing.

    I can't vouch for an RR3's quality I'm just looking at Jackson's myself for the first time. Though I would say some find "V" shapes a pain in the ass while sitting. Not a huge problem in my book or just stand while you play.

    A few more specifics on the guitars and I'm sure you'll get even better breakdowns. Good luck.
