1973 BC Rich B38 310426 solid Brazilian Rosewood


The guitar is very lightly played and in excellent cosmetic and playing condition for it's age. Frets are in excellent shape. This model was hand made in Los Angeles, California by Bernardo Rico. This particular model is outfitted with a German Spruce top, Brazilian Rosewood back and sides as well as an Ebony fretboard, and Mahogany neck. It has no adjustable truss rod in the Spanish neck.  It has one replacement bridge pin but the rest of the guitar is bone stock. The guitar has a excellent action, no buzzing,  and sounds very balanced. There are a couple of light signs of wear in the finish on the top including an old repair. It has an original black hard case. The top grade Brazilian Rosewood back and sides Rico used were cut and imported between the 1930's to 1950's while top grade dalbergia nigra was plenteous. Original owner purchased this from Rico in 1975.
