  • This guitar was probably made circa 1974
  • Made by Bernardo (Bernie) Chavez Rico Sr. himself  
  • The excellent woodworking and fretwork as well as top grade Brazilian Rosewood, more rare then just after the embargo than now, makes it a historically important part of the history of the guitar.  
  • This very rare, collectible instrument is presented in fine playing condition with original hard shell case. 
  • This guitar was in Bob Willcutt's private collection from about 1975. The BC RICH name was first used 66-67, and he made about 300 acoustics until 1976. Even back then Brazilian was getting rare and it was a good investment. When he visited the BC Rich "factory" quite primitive with men shaping necks with drawknives, he was told it was built by Bernie.
  • This is a model B-38
