BC Rich guitars have always been unconventional (and awesome!) and sometimes people need a little help to figure out what the controls do, particularly on some of the complicated layouts.  Take the 8 String Bich for example, it can have an enormous array of sounds and options.  Where to begin?   Here are a few handy diagrams to take the mystery out of what all those knobs do on your BC Rich.  We like BC Rich guitars a lot at The Music Zoo, and are stocking some extremely cool Handmade USA guitars as well as plenty of catalog models.
