NBD - BC Rich NJ Series Eagle w/DiMarzios - CashConvertors!

Recommended Posts

Just scored an off-white, thru-neck, 80's 'NJ Series' BC Rich Eagle with a double set of DiMarzio P pickups in it for £89 from Cash Convertors!
Needs a clean & set up - but the powerful P bass sound is shining through already! ;)

Never thought I'd find a decent bass bargain in there but it seems it was worth my while for once!

Christ, my local cash converter type place doesn't even have Encore basses for that little!!

That's a score! It's great when you find a shop that has no idea what they're selling, reminds me of my £70 Ibanez Musician MC150! B)

Not 100% sure, but I think MIJ BC Rich were Kasuga builds, will be top quality.

Pics ASAP, please.

Jon.

Aaaaargh!!! I've been looking for one of those since I tried Silverfoxnik's last summer.

Did they have another one in stock? :lol:

I'm not a big fan of BC Rich basses particularly
But this is a bargain :)
Glad you like it

Like many of the other replies, I never seem to find those sort of bargains in my local Cash Converters
I've heard several people who have got bargains there
But I tend to just see [email protected] whenever I pop in
... and it's usually overpriced [email protected] at that

Nice one :)

EDIT: And yes, pics please

Sadly my tech has told me the neck is twisted beyond what's worth spending on it so will be returning it for a refund :(

Good find!

My best CrackConverters buy was a Jackson Dinky lefty from the 90's where they were made in Japan, had Duncans and a proper Floyd for £120 :D

Was it one of BC Rich's famed "100 piece" necks by any chance? I had an NJ Mockingbird with one of these that had a neck like a banana.

That's such a shame! I found a BC Rich Ironbird in a CC a few years ago with a Robin Hood neck. I took a chance as it was cheap and as luck would have it the shop ad tuned the bass ridiculously high - when tuned correctly the neck settled down nicely.

Yellowing with a gluey, plywoody centre to be precise - this is what it looked like:

As I understand it they were only in production for a year or so - I wonder why...
