This guitar is perfect, i love the style and the sound that sob produces. I play a lot of rock and heavy metal and this guitar gives me the look i need. Also i bought it off amazon and it came in perfect shape and couldnt be happier with it. This guitar sounds amazeing when u hook it up to a distortion petal if you prefer that type of sound/music.

Basswood Body With Beveled Top
Basswood provides a warmer tone than maple and other hardwoods, along with great low-end response, and is overall a lightweight wood. Perfect for non-traditional body shapes, and the Avenge SOB certainly fits the bill.Beveled Top
Most of B.C. Rich's body styles employ a beveled edge around the shape, including this one. In many ways bevels on a top are similar to facets on a cut stone. They catch the light and reflect at different angles, giving the instrument more of a three dimensional look. Some of the B.C. Rich top bevels are extreme and wide while others are subtle and narrow. Occasionally the shape of the instrument is accented by painting the bevels a contrasting color.The Avenge SOB gets a red bevel to match its red inlays. It all looks wicked against the gloss onyx finish.Bolt-on Construction
A number of B.C. Rich guitars use a classic Bolt-on construction. On these instruments a neck (typically maple) is bolted on with 4 screws to the body. This construction offers some added flexibility in the instruments adjustment and provides the option to change the neck in the future.The Avenge SOB features a maple neck with an ultra-playable natural satin finish, and a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard. That's where you'll find one of this axe's most visually striking features, the red "beast wing" inlays. The deep cutaways make access to higher notes a breeze, so you can shred away in that upper register without any problems.B.C. Rich BDSM Pickup
The Avenge SOB takes a no-frills approach when it comes to pickups, with just a single BDSM humbucker in the bridge position. Really, what more do you need? B.C. Rich designed their BDSM humbucking pickups to provide a solid sound and to be durable while delivering high output. BDSM stands for Broad Dynamic Sonically Matched. Which simply means that the pickup is designed to reproduce a wide range of frequencies accurately (broad dynamic). Then they are tested and matched in pairs (Neck and Bridge) by their inherent individual and signature tonal and output characteristics to give a solidly balanced tone (sonically matched).Hardware
The Avenge SOB features a Tune-o-Matic bridge with string-thru-body design, for serious sustain and solid tuning. The chrome die-cast tuners seal the deal, and, like the other hardware, feature a black finish.
