As the 4th season of “Stranger Things” came to its end, the hype for the show and its characters was off the charts. In particular, rock and metal fans were focused on the show’s Eddie Munson, portrayed by Joseph Quinn. And everyone keeps talking about that “Master of Puppets” scene. But let’s not spoil anything for those who haven’t watched it yet.
In honor of the season 4 finale and plenty of tasty metal references, B.C. Rich has teamed up with “Stranger Things” for a limited-edition Warlock model, reports Music Radar. Called simply Eddie’s Warlock, it comes in two options. Well, actually three options, since there’s also a small-scale replica, available for $39.99. What’s more, the replica even comes with the Red Crackle finish.
When it comes to the actual full-sized guitars, B.C. Rich offers two limited-edition models. The more basic one is a part of the company’s NJ Series, bearing the classic sharp-looking body in either Relic Crackle or Liquid Black finishes.
This one comes with a mahogany body, maple neck with “Sredzilla” profile, bolt-on construction, ebony fingerboard with a 14-inch radius, extra-jumbo frets, and a Floyd Rose Locking bridge. It’s also equipped with B.C. Rich high-output humbuckers, a 3-way switch, individual pickup volume controls, and a master tone control. All pots are 500K linear ones. The price of this bad boy is $899.
The other is a Custom Shop version, bringing some of the same build features. However, the body on this one is made out of alder and we have a Kahler 2300 tremolo bridge with Floyd Rose R3 locking nut, as well as Grover tuning machines. Although the control layout is the same, this guitar is equipped with a DiMarzio Super Distortion humbucker in the bridge position and a DiMarzio D Activator X in the neck position. For this one, you’ll need to put aside $4,699.99.
