    Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Special X3 Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

    You can find out plenty about this guitar elsewhere, but there's a few things you should know. There are cutouts in the guitar for the knobs, which don't appear in the advertised pictures for either guitar. Three of the four are slightly oblong circles, and none of the knobs are centered. Inside the cutouts, the finish coat is thin and worn in places, and is not smooth like the rest of the guitar. You have to look closely and feel it to notice. (The knobs do not rub the guitar). I got the tobacco burst with gold hardware, and the color of the guitar seems a bit darker, almost like the version with silver hardware. Also, the back is a darkish brown, not black, like it appears in the picture. When I pulled it out of the box I thought they sent me the wrong guitar. It certainly is not the same as it was advertised. It's almost like a blend of the two guitars. It still looks really nice, and I absolutely love to play it.. I would've rated this a 5, but I rated it a 4 to bring attention to these things. Knowing what I do now, I probably would have still bought the guitar because it was a great deal, and I am happy with it. Though this would have been nice to know in advance. Last thought... I plan on swapping the knobs out for some gold ones. :)

      Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Special X3 Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

      I would not call myself a novice but I'm not really what I would call experienced either. I just love to play. I have always wanted a mockingbird and this one just grabbed me when I found it on sale. I think the pickups sound very good for stock. I will be switching to some dimarzio's in the future. but this will satisfy anyone from the beginner to a professional player who is looking for a great deal. I would recommend this to anyone.

          Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Special X3 Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

          I was a little leary buying this guitar. Mainly because of the price. But I read the reviews and they all seemed positive so I pulled the trigger and bought it. It arrived yesterday and I essentially played it right out of the box. I was pleasantly surprised with the build quality and the sound. A few reviewers said the pickups weren't up to par. But I think they're just fine. The guitar is nice and light and the top is beautiful. This is definately a good bang for the buck guitar.

          Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Special X3 Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

          Bought a Condition One for almost 80% off of MSRP...unbelieveable, thanx MF(again..) Stunning Bookmatched Quilted Maple Top (not a Veneer). Only had to Intonate A couple cents on a couple saddles.. Best Factory Set-Up I've seen, sweet action, good relief, smooth playability. PUPS(Broad Dynamic Sonically Matched) are good enough but some will surely want Hotter Output. Bridge PUP knobs drag on the finish but that will wear away I suppose. Body is 2" thick like a Paul but not too heavy. Strap balance is fine, nice big strap buttons. Stays in tune but is worthy of Sperzals upgrade. Mid position on PUP selector is mid/bridge PUP combo, not sure about that yet, may have to add mini-switch to get all 3 on at once plus middle PUP by itself. Overall, this is the best value I've ever gotten. Including 2 Acoustics(Martin,Washburn)and a Bass I'm @ a Baker's Dozen...my wife(keyboards)agrees, that should be enough. (ESP,Fndr,Gib,G&L,Hag,Ibnz,RWG,Wshbrn) Anyone else out there addicted to guitars? A Healthy Habit 4 Sure.

          Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Special X3 Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

          My other Mock's have balance issues requiring moving the rear strap button up a couple inches. Not this one. The quality of workmanship is way better than I expected from an import. Plays GREAT right out of the box. Required no bridge or truss rod adjustment. The pickups that came in it are a really good PAF style pickup. I'll end up changing to my usual Seymour Duncan's in the future but right now these are doing great. The quilt top on this one is AMAZING. The figure in the MOP inlays is beautiful. Overall an excellent guitar at any price but unrivalled in this price range.

          The guitar itself is gorgeous (pictures don't do it justice) Neck feel, nut / bridge / string setup and ability to stay in tune out of the box are great. My only beef are the pickups. Thick Bass tone and very little treble to be found in any setting. Tried with Orange 30 Terror, Crate 2X12 120 watt, Fender Mustang and a Bogner... no difference. Throw a couple (3 in this case) hot pickups in and she'll scream for you!

            I will get right to the point. This is a beautiful well made guitar. Has great tone for stock pups, also is lighter than expected. I have only played this guitar one night so far but very impressed with the feel of it. Always wanted a bird to add to the collection and I feel I made a great choice. There is one flaw in craftsmenship the lower volume button diggs into the finish due to the arch. price point was excellent for this guitar. Thanks MF.

              I play for a living and have quite a few different guitars. I bought this one on sale and I am really happy with it. I have a lot more expensive guitars but I have to say that the X3 is made very well and would compare it to my USA PRS or my USA Strat. If they go on sale again you should defiantly grab one.

              Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Special X3 Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

              Rarely am I amazed? This new B. C. Rich electric is simply stunning in fit, finish, sound, quality, and all jokes aside, I was honestly stunned when I took it out of the packaging. After tuning it up, and plugged in a nice Fender Reverb Deluxe amp, this guitar has all the qualities of a guitar that cost over thousands more. In all honesty, I own Fender Strats, Taylors, PRS, Epiphone, LTD's, Takamine's and more and I'll place this guitar up against any of them for fit, finish, sound and quality. Do yourself a huge favor and play one, and unless you happy to get a "lemon", *( there are lemon's in each and every group of guitars, so not all are the same, even though the name is the same ), however if your order is of standard issues, you'll be hard pressed to find a better quality and sounding guitar. For the money, it's hands down, the best buy I've ever gotten.
