B.C. Rich Warlock NJ

New Toy: B.C. Rich Warlock NJ Electric Guitar

I became involved in music at a young age. As time progressed I have acquired more and more instruments (and gotten rid of many too!), but there has been one on my bucket list for quite some time, the B.C. Rich Warlock.

I saw my first Warlock in person as a teenager and it was love at first sight. I knew someday I would have one, but I was not a guitar player at the time. Fast forward to today- I am still not a guitar player, though I can jam out a few chords, but I now have that B.C. Rich Warlock I have long wanted!

B.C. Rich Warlock NJ

This is the B.C. Rich Warlock NJ series. The serial number on it is strange. B.C. Rich changed their serial number formats several times over the years. As near as I can tell, this is from 1992. What drew me to this particular guitar was the deep blue color highlighting the wood grain. That first Warlock I saw had the same look to it. It would seem to be somewhat rare. Most Warlocks are solid black or solid red.

For its age, and considering these are typically thrashing guitars, it is in very good shape. Needed a good cleaning and one of the bridge posts was loose. Easy fix. Since these photos it has been shined up quite a bit more.

Here are some of the handy resources that I found about the history of B.C. Rich guitars that helped identify this one:



World’s cheapest standing desk

Standing desks are great to get you up from a sedentary chair, especially when you are at your desk all day. In my case, a standing desk is helpful to alleviate the pain of a back injury that I suffered in my teens.

I would like a sit/stand convertible desk, however those cost hundreds of dollars and I wanted to be a bit thrifty. This desk cost less than $20 to build. The top is reclaimed from an old shelf, and and I counted it as free.

I also wanted to be able to integrate my musical keyboard into the setup. It came out pretty well for $20!
