    Comments about B.C. Rich Mockingbird Neck Through with Floyd Rose Electric Guitar:

    I order this due the look. I always loved the look of a Mockingbird. This came with a very nice hard shell case as well. The pickups sound pretty good for stock, I was told by some at BC Rich, they were modeled after the Dimazio pups they put in the more expensive models.
    The switches can be a bit confusing and the diagram that come with the guitar is severely lacking. As a matter of fact you get very little info about this guitar. They isn't even an owners manual as such.
    The one I received had a damage box and the case was damaged. Not sure where this happened but I did call BC RIch told them the story and they were willing to replace the case.
    As far as playability, the neck dive is very severe. More so than my SG. I tried a 3 1/2 inch strap which did help but you still have to hold the neck up. Then I decided to try out Floyd Rose. After the first dive and release the guitar was out of tune (badly) and there was an audible pop. It turns out the locking nut did not lock down the strings correctly. Even locked the strings would slacken at the headstock when using the Floyd. I had to return it. I say it could be a good guitar if you can find a good one. I returned this one and I will not be ordering another. Hopefully the QC improve at Bc Rich.

      Comments about B.C. Rich Mockingbird Neck Through with Floyd Rose Electric Guitar:

      A new band, a new guitar...right?

      Signing on with a fairly high profile cover band found me needing something I've never had, a guitar with a locking tremolo system. After doing some looking around I decided that the Mark 11 Mockingbird was going to give me the best bang for the buck. Plus, I've always loved the Mockingbird shape, and I'm a sucker for a lot of switches on a guitar.

      When the guitar arrived, unpacked it and took it out of the case. Son of a gun...it was in tune! Much like Schecter, BC Rich does a setup on all of their guitars that come in (at least, in this line they do). However, after a minute or so I realized that the guitar was tuned down 1/2 step. Arrgh!!!! Now I've gotta spend the next hour retuning and setting up the Floyd...something I was really wanting to avoid.

      The fret work is very well done...no sharp fret ends like you see on a lot of imports. The Grover tuning machines (while I think they are outsourced) are smooth with a very high gear ratio. The pickups...not sure who or what they are but they sound really good....reminding me a bit of the Burstbuckers. There's a nice midrange hump to them in humbucking mode, and they really chime in single coil mode.

      The Varitone circuit is an interesting bird. Simply, it's a wah pedal in the guitar. The first two positions are pretty cool, and remind me of Michael Schenker's solo tone. But once you get past those positions, they're pretty much just mud. They might be useful in a stoner/doom setting with a fuzz box...not really my style but would be interesting to try.

      The guitar is neck heavy, but no worse than an SG.

      Minor complaint...a couple of the pickup mounting ring screws were cammed out. Bummer.

      Overall, a great value especially considering you get a custom fit case with this guitar.
