    I have been playing guitar for about 1 1/2 years, but played bass for 2 1/2 before that. I got the guitar after about 8 months of playing acoustic as my first electric guitar and i dont regret it at all. its a great guitar and i love it everything from the feel to the playablility to the look except for the stock pick ups. They were terrible the neck pickup gives off a constant buzzing sound and for the most part i cant get that sound to go away without completly silenceing the pick up, but the the bridge pickup works fine. i would recomend switching out the pickups all together in order to get the full potential out of this guitar. I record with it for my band and it sounds amazing in the samplesthat we have. If you are thinking about picking up this guitar i recomend doing it.

      Comments about B.C. Rich Masterpiece Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

      As soon as i opened the box i was in love.This is one great guitar.It is beautiful to look at and wonderful to play.The neck is perfect,the pick-ups can go from a nice warm clean tone to ripping it up with the flip of a switch.
      Artificial harmonics come easy ,it stays in tune and it is not to heavy.This is just an all around wonderful guitar.
      This is the first B.C.Rich guitar that i have ever owned and i am already looking for my next guitar ,which WILL be a B.C.Rich....
      WAY TO GO GUYS..............

            I've had this guitar for several days now, and been playing all day each day. The guitar sounds like it can be play Jazz to Classic Rock, and for metal. The guitar weighs about the weight of a Gibson Les Paul. The color is beautiful, and the pictures can't describe the beauty of this axe. If I had the choice out of all five of my guitars; I would have to say this is the best of them all.

            Comments about B.C. Rich Masterpiece Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

            Set up well, right out of the box. Picture does not do the guitar justice - finish is flawless.
            Pickups are very bright, which is better than not bright enough. No excess noise from the electronics. The neck is fairly thick, like a Les Paul - not a "fast" neck by any means, but plays comfortably. On a strap, the guitar is slightly neck heavy, but not bad. All in all this is a good rhythm guitar. I am extremely happy with it - for the price it is a very good deal.

              Comments about B.C. Rich Masterpiece Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

              This guitar plays and feels great. It is light weight (compared to Epi Les Paul)and sounds equally great playing through my Marshall JCM 900 head or just plugged in to my DigiTech RP250 pedal warming up with headphones on. Needed a secondary/replacement primary guitar for gigs, this will def be my axe of choice. The "Dragon's Blood" color, a little darker than the picture (more of a maroon color than a bright red) is awesome in person. Came with cloud inlays vice the pictured block inlays - cloud inlays way cooler looking. Shipped from factory already set up good to go. Took it out of the box, plugged it in, tuned it down half step and was completely set to go at rehearsal. Highly recommend this B.C. Rich. I've played other B.C. Rich models (the Warlock, the Beast, the Ironbird and the Bich) this is by far the most comfortable of all the models played in my opinion. Like I stated in the title, if your considering this guitar and having doubts? Don't, it's definitely worth every penny of it's price!

              Comments about B.C. Rich Masterpiece Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

              been wanting a mockingbird for the collection for years. finding it at this price was too good to pass up. great quality. one thing, mine came with the cloud inlays, as mentioned in the description. the pic shows the ugly rectangel inlays, big plus there. im very picky about the necks on my guitars, this one is very nice. not the best, it does seem a little bit thick, but has a great oil finish and plays nicely. imo, better than any neck youll find on a guitar for the price range.
              it is what it is. i dont know what "features" youd need on a guitar. its got 2 pickups, a neck, and strings. no tremelo, but sometimes thats a plus.
              very solid, very well made.
              cant beat the price.

              Well, a chinese one... but, what the problem? The finishing perfect. The neck, action, better than top marks like Fender or Gibson (just I'm lucky or all models is like this one?). Cheap pickups? No, quiet, strong, good, sweet at the neck, jazzist sounds and enought agressive at the bridge. There are just a sad history, the electric wiring was real garbage. I think they put a "child" to make the job. I'm not a tech and I could make it better (is impossible make it worse!). Poor soldering, big noise, and the switch useless (no mid point). I sent to fix that and now is perfectly working. For the price, at least four times less than a starting Gibson's price, you will be surprised! Do the test, compare! (before, prepare yourself to send it to make some changes at electric wiring) ;-)
              Is a personal point of view, but it don't need a

              Comments about B.C. Rich Masterpiece Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

              It's very comfortable to play. i'm going to throw some ernie ball slinkys and then it'll be absolutely idea.

              it's tone offers way for a lot of versatility. i play just about everything under the sun and this will be my main guitar.
              The looks are amazing. it's hard to stop looking at it long enough to play with.

              the stock pickups are great, they have a sweet tone and a nice bite and have great sustain through a nice distortion.
              it feels like a nice sturdy guitar. as i stated above, the stock pickups are great, i don't see a need to changed them at this point. it stays in tune well.
              best bang for the buck i've ever seen in a guitar. well worth the money spent.
