Looks beat up. I'm not sure what series it is, but only the NJ series are decent. The rest suck. RG all the way.

Re: BC RICH assasin USA 89'

Actually, the NJ series are imports I believe and what you have there is a US made BC Rich. They were great guitars- I had a Mason Bernard version based on the same body. Mason Bernard was Bernie Rico's LA brand he briefly ran after BC Rich. It had a great feel, DiMarzio pickups and the same control layout as the one in your pics. On mine, the headstock was more conservative as was the color (metalic red). But if you like the finish, it is a really high quality guitar.

I think they are different animals and you need to play them both and decide after that.

All the old USA BCrich guitars were awesome. I used to have an ST3 version that I miss very much.

Re: BC RICH assasin USA 89'

I've still got my 89 Assasin and I love it. http://s195.photobucket.com/albums/z...ent=bcrich.jpg

You can't compare the USA to the imports. USA's are quality. Well built and a shredders delight. Don't know the pups in it, their stock but they are perfect for shred (bridge) and an excellent strat sounding neck pup for crystal clear cleans.

I own 3 Ibz's RG320DX, RS440 Roadstar II and a FGM100 coming next week. Besides the FGM and my 90 Jackson Fusion I'd say the BC Rich is better built then the other 2 Ibz's.

It is definitely a quality guitar and you won't be disappointed if you get it.

It shouldn't be Japanese, NJ production shifted to Korea in 1986
