I bought this guitar new in late 1986. It is a BC Rich NJ series. These may be the most underated guitars ever. They can be found on ebay for silly low prices. I believe this one to be fairly rare as most of what I have seen are solid colors. I check ebay fairly regulary in case another pops up. I have never seen another one like this. It is a solid piece of what appears to be swamp ash. The color is blue maroon pearl. The bridge is a kahler Flyer. The pickups are very hot and she sound awesome.

Very Interesting....It's really called an ST3....just because of the pup's.
I also have a 1986 ST3....the only guitar I bought new and never sold.
Your switch config is different then mine, all my switches are below the volume pot. But then again yours is a NJ series. Mine has no markings on it at all except for the BC Rich logo in script on the headstock and a low serial # on the back plate. B0276 Floyd trem.
I've changed pup's in the guitar so many times I can't tell you...LOL
Right now I've got EMG's in it. 85/ single coil/ 81....I had the neck pup space routed out to make room for the 81. It's killer and get amazing sounds out of it.
I just had the neck refretted by the guy that used to run the BC Rich factory here in NJ.
He says he hasn't seen one like this in years....according to him it has a Wayne Charvel quarter sawn neck on it (which is what they used on the first production runs of this guitar).....
How true all this is...I can't say...but in any case..it's a great guitar.

bobt, you are right, it is a ST3. Your appears to be a USA made model. I suspect that would explain the diference in the electronics.
