    Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

    Solid guitar, but only thing that was bad for me is that it came in drop d tuning, but the A was slightly sharp and I didn't know about the fine tuners on the Floyd. Be careful using the Floyd you might break your strings like me.

    Neck Adjustment People for Fret Buzzzzzz

          Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

          Now listen, a simple neck adjustment is needed for fret buzz. The buzz usually happens during shipping and is caused by temp changes. There are many you tube videos on how to do this, if you don't want to do it on your own, take it to your local music store where they most likely will have someone there who can do the adjustment for you. Remember Fret Buzz is not a defect....you all need to learn how to set up your guitar, very handy to know. Cheers...........

            This guitar is so sexy, sounds amazing, but I don't have the patience to screw with the floyd rose constantly. I'll stick with stop-tail piece bridges.

            I love it!

            Cons

              Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

              This is my first BC Rich so I was not sure what to expect. The shape was a concern but I gave it a chance anyway.

              First the pro's:

              Out of the box it looked great. Set-up was fine and all it needed was tuning.
              The shape fits me to a tee. It sits just right. It is perfect for me.

              Other reviews mention fret buzz but none on mine.

              The middle pick-up setting is interesting. Both volume and tone controls work on the middle selection and are very responsive. I now use the middle position for most everything. There is so much more control over the tone versus just the bridge pick-up or just the neck pick-up. Of course there is always the bite of the bridge pick-up or the bottom end of the neck pick-up with just a flick of the switch.

              All hardware looks good and the chrome shines.

              The finish is flawless and the white binding on the gloss black really sets it off. The frets are finished quite nice.

              The cons:

              No paperwork was included. No instructions about the Floyd Rose, no warranty card, no set up or maintenance instructions. For a new player this could be an issue.
              The odd shape makes it a challenge to set it in a regular guitar stand. Because of the balance of weight you must be careful when setting the guitar down. A guitar stand with a neck holder would help.

              All in all the guitar is a hands down winner and gets 4 and 1/2 bangs on the Banger scale. It did not get a perfect 5 because of the of the missing paperwork.

              If this baby is calling you to take it home you won't be disappointed.

              This thing is slick almost right out of the box. Got a Mockingbird St as well not set up as well as this one. A little lighter than the ST finish is great even though not a fan of gloss black. Bought the Epi Les Paul Pro top the same week, world of differance in sound and playablity. And the Paul was a hundo more. A steal at the sale price. Wasnt even thinking about getting another one really but a deals a deal. Was half temped to grab another one while on sale but gotta set limits ya know

                Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

                Fit and finish on this guitar is flawless, I looked it over very carefully and found absolutely nothing wrong with it. Most of the time I can find something to complain about but not this time. The setup out of the box is perfect with nice low action and no fret buzz anywhere on the neck. This is guitar number 20 for me and of the 7 purchased online this is the 2nd one that did not require at least some work, All it needed was a quick tuning. The pickups sound great, I am very surprised by just how nice this guitar looks and how well it sounds and plays.
                The pickups sound good clean and have a nice punch to them when using the overdrive channel.
                I have been playing for 45 years now and have acquired 10 tube amps over the years so I'm not judging this guitar using a practice amp.

                Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

                I have had this guitar for a while now, and I have to say I love it. I have a few other electrics, and this one is my favorite so far. Once I switched the stock strings out with some heavier gauge ones (10's) it sounds even better. For the price it is more than worth it. After some heavy use it did acquire some fret buzz, but this was easily fixed at my next string change. The sustain is much better than I expected with the Floyd Rose Special. I was thinking of changing the sustain block with a different one, but I have not decided yet. If I do, I will let you know how it turns out. I might also throw in some EMG pickups, a friend recommended that I try the EMG 81X. The overall tone is great for hard rock and metal, I also played a bit of blues mostly clean and it sounded pretty good too. The Trans Red finish it beautiful, and I have received many complements. One thing I am curious about is weather or not the top is 1/2" maple like the normal Pro X version. Other than that, the pickups, and tremolo it seems to be the same guitar, with the exception of the finish, which sells for $1000+ online.

                Great guitar for the price, easily worth its value and then some. Get it setup right by a professional and you will love it. This has become my go to guitar for jamming.

                Plays great. Looks cool. Has a great Metal, Punk, Hard-rock tone. The clean tone is fine, but not as great as I had hoped. The finish looks a little different in person than it does in the pictures. It sort of has a 70's bowling ball look to it. Its not bad, just a little different than I expected. I only have two issues with the purchase. 1. There are no instructions for the Floyd Rose tremolo. If you aren't familiar with how to tune them look it up on the web or you'll never get it in tune. 2). There's no instructions for the electronics and its setup a little different than I would have expected for the center switch position. At first I thought there was something wrong, but evidently that's just how it works.

                  All around good solid guitar with many perks. Not much to say when the product is very decent and a bargain for the price. I have the metal flake. Only thing is I have to do is take to music store to adjust the action. Not a biggie but I called Musicians friend and they split the cost with me. I will be recommending Musicians Friend to everyone I know from now on. Best customer service ever. Great sounding rock guitar.
