BC Rich has a couple of problems with it. The American-made ones are made in BC Rich Custom Shops, and they're said to be the kings of metal (after Ibanez, Jackson and ESP...you get my gist). The Chinese made ones are the worst buys in terms of build quality, or so I've known from friends who own them.
The Washburn you're refering to is Washburn WV16 Anarchy...dunno about it though, if you're looking for a metal guitar, go for the Washburn N series...
