    Got this a few weeks ago actually, was an impulse buy, but man am I glad I got it! This guitar can sound like pretty much anything, between the coil splitters, phase switch & Vari-tone knob. Can get some pretty convincing Strat tones, GREAT cleans, and full blown metal. The neck has a nice, comfortable shape, and it balances pretty good on a strap. Overall, I love this guitar! :hbang:

    On to the pics!

    Nice dude, my local GC has one of these in each color they come in, and I REALLY like them. I've told myself I will pick one up at some point this year.

    Dat blue is absolutely gorgeous. My only issue with Mockingbirds is sitting down, the upper part always digs into my chest. Now, if they made a 7 string ASM Pro with that top.... Dear god.

    Like the guy above, I find the shape uncomfortable but MAN I wish I could get along with it, that's gorgeous.

    Thanks guys! Yeah, the upper part digging into my chest is the only thing that really bothers me about it... And the 7 string idea - OH YEAH! :shred:

    BC Rich's best guitar is the mockingbird, hands down. At least visually.

    Had one of those a while back. They look absolutely astounding, and are some of the most versatile guitars out there. I put Bareknuckles in mine, works great too. Altso, it's great to see features that good on a guitar that cheap. BC Rich really upped their game a while back!

    I have never liked BC Rich guitars..... Until I played this exact same model at the local GC. Stunning!

    I keep seeing these at GC and never really take the time to sit down with one. I think that'll change next time I go. That one you have there is stunning. :)

    Love it! I have always had a soft spot for the 'Bird... Throw some white or cream pickups & rings on there now!

    Looks quite sexy. The many knobs are too overwhelming for me though :/

    Ive come close to getting one of these several times, I just wish they had the batwing headstock.

    Very nice guitar, congrats.
