This is a very beautiful guitar,,It has a wonderfull neck,,hardware & electronics are all first class...I found no reason to change a thing right out of the box...I bought a Warlock a while back''(another first class choice)..I am now a believer in BC Rich,,the attention to detail is spot on. One thing..play this guitar standing up with a good strap.The left side of the body design does tend to dig into your chest,,It does mine anyhow...No big deal though for such a great instrument...Get one youll love It..

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:

Been playing rock in bands(Deep Purple style) for 43 years, own 13 Gibson solidbodies, some very limited high end models, and own a Parker. This guitar is OUTSTANDING for the money, should cost 4x the current price, I couldn't be happier I bought this, plays awesome right out of the box, I tweaked the action just a tad lower and put GHS .009's on it and I feel like I finally got a GREAT deal. Finish is as good as flamed Gibsons, sound is very cool. If there is any doubt, BUY this before they realize they are selling it too cheap. You can't go wrong buying this axe, great looks , good playing axe, and I am NOT a novice. My band sounds exactly like who we cover, from Deep Purple to Dokken. Can't give this axe a good enough review, WELL worth the $299!!!!!!!!!!

Love this guitar.

By David Hicks

from OHIO

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.

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

I don't EVER do this, but a follow up review is warranted.I've fallen more in love with this axe over the past few weeks, this is the only guitar I use with my band since I got it. The sound is fantastic, I run thru a Pod and Marshall Stack, it sustains until tomorrow, fat tone, action is equal to any Gibson I own and the looks constantly get great comments. I plan on buying another Mockingbird, with different features and color for variety soon. This is a guitar I feel strongly enough about to urge anyone on the edge to just get it. My Brother in law just played mine and is buying his own now. Sweet Axe!! Nuff said...

mockingbird

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.

Like the top ones!

By Jose Eliezer Mikosz

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

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:

    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!

    The modern version of a classic

    By Yarbicus

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

    I have wanted a Mockingbird since I saw my first one back in Junior High. I won't repeat what others have said, but I will add that if you want a CLASSIC Mock then get the NJ Classic. The masterpiece is basically an updating of the Mock. It is lightweight (what the heck is agathis?) and is strung through the body. The neck also has a satin finish. The most updated is the top--it is a truly modern quilt maple veneer with a stunning see-through finish. It is finished off with a nicely done white binding.The end result is great to play and great to look at guitar that is much lighter than its predecessor. Of course, the sound is also not as dark or heavy. This is not a criticism; it is just a fact.Bottom line is I get the classic styling I want in a package that is designed to compete with modern guitars like Ibanez and Schecter. I love it!

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

    The Masterpiece Mockinbird was certainly a pretty guitar. I bought it based on the reviews that I read and didn't play it...that was my first mistake. I was certainly impressed by the looks but the sound and feel left me uninspired. The neck is wide and uncomfortable and the sound is bassy and flat. Couldn't even do pinch harmonics on it. There was no punch to it. I returned it and got something else.

    Decent guitar for the price

    By Furtherwithin

    from California

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

    The neck is faster than my schecter omen extreme. I do like the neck quite a bit. When you sit down with the guitar you often have that little bump on your chest which hurts if you like to push the guitar into your body and get a good feel with it. It might of been the chair or so but that one problem with it. The other one. You cannot do pinch harmonics on this guitar. It might of been poorly set up by the store but to me even if a guitar is badly set up I can at least get some kind of pinch harmonic. This one I couldnt. I gave it an overall 4. If they cut away the bulging body so it doesnt hurt my chest I would definitely buy it and put some other pick ups in it.

    Best Ever!!!

    By Lt. Lizard

    from Tucson, AZ

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

    This guitar is absolutely the best guitar I have ever owned, or even played. I have very extensive experience with guitars. Been playing for almost 2 decades. Have played Les Pauls, Schecters, PRS's, Ibanez, Washburns, Benedito, Fenders, Corts, Johnsons, and the list goes on. You can NOT beat the way this particular guitar plays. It's like butter! I prefer this over a Les Paul or PRS any day. Very easy to hammer, tap, and pull off. The pickups ROCK, especially with the right effects. (I'm using a cheap FAB metal pedal and a Peavy twin amp) People love it too. I have gotten many compliments from fans as well as other guitarists about how awesome this guitar is. If you want to check out how it sounds, just google my band name (Lazer Totin' Lizards) and follow one of the links. I have used my Mockingbird on all the shows and recordings we have done thus far and don't plan on using any other guitar.
