This guitar is the highest quality Chuck Shuldiner Stealth you can get from B.C. Rich. Chuck Schuldiner is well known in the metal music scene. Chuck is commonly referred to as the godfather of Death metal. Chucks band Death were at the forefront of the death metal scene for nearly two decades. Throughout that time Chuck pretty much played one guitar, a B.C. Rich Stealth. The Stealth was a pretty rare guitar back then and before this tribute model came out you could only get one through a custom order. The Stealth has a unique shape but it is perfectly balanced. It has an ebony fretboard although I think Chucks personal guitar had a rosewood fretboard. It has a 24 fret neck with a reverse headstock. The body is made of alder and has a single pickup. The pickup is the Dimarzio X2N which is the trademark of Chucks sound. It has a single volume knob and a wrap around bridge.

UTILIZATION

The shape of the guitar makes it very easy to reach the top frets. It has a neck through design so there is no large heel to get in the way of your playing. The shape of the guitar also helps balance the guitar so it is very comfortable when you play. The guitar is very light so it is comfortable to play standing up even on long gigs. The ebony fretboard is smooth and the jumbo frets let you have an easy action. The wrap around bridge takes a bit of getting used to. Atleast on this particular wrap around bridge you can still intonate your guitar. The quality control on this model is amazing. The frets are dressed perfectly and the there is not a sharp end to be found.

SOUNDS

This guitar is not very versatile. It is designed to get one tone and do it well. It is built for a metal tone. The X2N is a metal machine. It was one of the hottest pickups back in the day and it still is. It has a really balanced tone voicing so it will really respond to the wood of the guitar. With the alder wood on this Stealth you get a nice high end gain. It is hard to sound muddy with this guitar because it has so much clarity. The ebony fretboard and the neck through neck construction also provides more clarity as well. Plug it into an old 8100 Marshall and you instantly get the classic Death tone. The X2N does not provide a very good clean tone and there is no neck pickup to help out. The clean tone on the X2N is too bright and tinny so if you want a good clean tone you will have to dial your amp accordingly.

OVERALL OPINION

Chuck is a metal icon and now you can have a guitar like his. Before this came out Stealths where really hard to find and really expensive. This has made the Stealth affordable. So you wont find someone else at your gig playing the same guitar as you. This guitar has B.C. Rich custom shop quality so you wont get anything better than this from them. This guitar is not very versatile though but if you are just looking for a good solid metal guitar that is fit for a legend this could be for you.
