Found this BC Rich acoustic electric guitar at a pawn shop. The sticker inside says bae-500pw but has no model number. Can you give me any info on it. It was for sale at $250.


Hey Julio,

Thanks for writing! This looks like a late 1990s/early 2000s Acoustic Electric model. You don't see may of these coming up for sale. BC Rich made really fantastic acoustic guitars but they were a bit expensive compared to Epiphone and other manufacturers so they didn't sell well. This guitar probably sold for around $500.00 when it was made. Is there a serial number inside the sound hole? Let me know and I'll do some further research. Stay in touch...Johnny
