The B.C. Rich Outlaw PX3T electric guitar features a bolt-on maple neck, 2 Rockfield Mafia humbucker pickups with coil tap, a basswood body with a deeply arched top, a rosewood fretboard with 24 jumbo frets, hollowpoint circle inlay, a Floyd Rose-licensed tremolo and two end of body strap buttons for a custom strap fit and instrument positioning.
The Outlaw PX3T guitar uses a classic Bolt-on construction. The maple neck is bolted on with 4 screws to the body. This construction offers some added flexibility in the instrument's adjustment and provides the option to change the neck in the future.
Rockfield Pickups - Mafia
The use of a ceramic magnet gives any pickup extra power due to the increased magnetic field they provide. This feature makes the Mafia pickups produce a hotter and thicker tone that's really aggressive and full. The increased low end, thick mids and in your face highs is what rock and roll was built on! Balanced and full of sustain this pickup is a great representation of its namesake, a truly intimidating killer.
The neck version of the Mafia pickup is just as full sounding as the bridge position, without taking away from what has already been accomplished. Very minor modifications to the overall design and design concept of this pickup gives it punchy, bold tone with the same aggressive characteristics as the bridge version. A tad brighter with a little less output really takes this pickup into the smooth and warm realm of the tonal spectrum. All while maintaining that balanced bite and in your face aggressive tone that the mafia is known for!
Deep Arched Top
A deep arched top is used on the B.C. Rich Outlaw PX3T guitar. The deep arch is achieved by increasing the body center by approximately 5/8" and then gently sloping the arch toward the side of the instrument and leveling out just as the slope reaches the edge. A deep arch top when applied to a B.C. Rich shape gives an air of elegance and sophistication.
