OVERVIEW

Impressive looks and versatile electronics.

The B.C. Rich Mockingbird Contour electric guitar is an affordable way to get impressive looks with enough sonic power to inspire the best in you. This eye-catching Mockingbird features a steep contour archtop basswood body tastefully appointed with triple-ply white binding and a long-set mahogany neck, which is a deeper-set neck joint method than a standard set neck allowing for increased sustain and a contoured all-access neck joint usually only found with neck-through designs.

Other features include a 24 jumbo fret, 12 radius rosewood fingerboard with classic cloud inlays, single-ply cream neck and headstock binding, a tune-o-matic bridge and Rich Hot Hex pickups that are sonically matched to the guitar's design and feature coil-splitting via push/pull pot on the master tone control. Case sold separately.

    Comments about B.C. Rich Mockingbird Contour Deluxe Electric Guitar:

    I have to say overall this is an amazing guitar I have 3 of them .you can get a great Strat soun using the coil tapping option. this guitar covers all the bases it will give you a Les Paul sound when you need one or a Stratocaster sound when you need one .very usable excellent quality guitar. I will add to these guitars stay in tune amazingly well and are set up from the factory quite nicely

        Comments about B.C. Rich Mockingbird Contour Deluxe Electric Guitar:

        Great Finish..Well Machined with a Wonderful Top..Wide Neck rather "SG" Like.I would recommend this Guitar Pros may feel the need to swap out Pickups and tuners and I may even Do that at some Point Myself
        But I gigged with it Last Night 1st Time and I never Pulled another Guitar out of the Case.VG Single Coil Tone
        I use an Egnater Rebel 30 with extension cab which generally makes any Guitar Sound Good,But I believe this Guitar is a Keeper . Shocked it was on sale for Under 300 .This is my first BC Rich,and after this 1 Probably not my Last

          High Quality Korean Made (not China) Mockingbird

          Comments about B.C. Rich Mockingbird Contour Deluxe Electric Guitar:

          Yes... its made in South Korea, not in China as is stated in the specs. An absolutely incredible value for what you'll pay. Build quality is exceptional. Not a flaw to be found. The multi-ply binding on the body and binding on the neck and headstock make this guitar visually impressive. The tuners are not the highest quality, but they work fine and hold tune. My favorite features are that it has a fair quality tune-o-matic bridge (easily upgradable if you want to) as opposed to the quadromatic usually found on non-vibrato BC Rich's, and that you can split the coils for single-coil sounds so you don't have to bring two guitars to a gig... this one will do just fine. Very light and very comfortable to play. I don't know if the quilted maple top is a veneer or not, but since its a "deluxe" my guess would be that it has a maple top and a veneer for asthetics. I have a Mockingbird ST from a few years ago, but it has the three toggle switches and the varitone five position knob which gives you more of a variety of tones, but thats a few too many switches to deal with (for me) when playing a gig. This contour deluxe makes contolling your sound on the fly a little easier. The tone knob/coil tap is also of somewhat lesser quality, as it acts more like an on/off switch when adjusting the tone. There is no sweep to it... its either full on tone or none when your about 7/8ths down. Lets face it though... how many players really use the tone knob at all anyway? Upper fret access is easy due to the deep cut away. Pick-ups sound great... no need to replace them in my opinion. Don't be fooled by the moderate price of this guitar... its far superior to what the price suggests.
