    Comments about B.C. Rich Mockingbird with Double Locking Tremolo Electric Guitar:

    Great overall product. Very nice balanced weight and feel. Really fun to play. Floyd system does a good job of staying in tune. Only thing I thought was lacking was the factory pickups. I think they are geared towards modern metal. They were lacking in clarity and smoothness. I changed them out for DiMarzio Satriani pickups. That made the guitar complete and an absolute pleasure to play.

        Comments about B.C. Rich Mockingbird with Double Locking Tremolo Electric Guitar:

        I've always wanted a Mockingbird, and being an X Japan fan: hide always played Mockingbirds. My fellow guitar player also has a Mockingbird, so it gave me some extra incentive to try to match him tonally as well. Being that my budget wasn't going to allow me to buy a more expensive one, I decided to go for this one with the double-locking tremolo.

        Right out of the box, the action is pretty close to where I like mine. The stock Ernie Ball 10-46 gauge strings are bigger than what i'm used to, since I typically use 9-42 - but on this guitar it feels right. It came in pristine condition, and when I first plugged it in it sounded great without changing any of the dials on my amp. It sounds almost the same as my Fernandes Vertigo, which is my main guitar. But it also depends on how you play, I can play with almost guitar & amp and get really close to my go-to sound.

        With that being said, In searching the internet for reviews, I read that most people find the stock high output pickups to sound dull and muddy. In my opinion they sound really good for stock pickups, they have clarity and punch and I didn't have to change my amp settings. A lot of people say that low end B.C. Rich pickups are terrible, but I have to disagree in this case. It depends on how you play and your amp settings. I play various styles, and so far this guitar sounds pretty much spot on tone-wise with some of my other guitars which I like. If I can maintain a consistent sound with subtle differences, then i'm all for it.

        For the price, this guitar is as good as my other more expensive guitars, plays smoothly, and feels right in my hands. Since my other guitars all have stop tailpieces, I love having the tremolo for divebombing and light trem. I would recommend this guitar to anyone who likes the mockingbird style, but can't afford the pricier ones. I may swap pickups down the road to ones I like more, but out of the box the stock pickups hold their own for me. This guitar is worth every penny.

        I play at home through Roland micro cube. The pickups sound great. The guitar came set up just right with 10s. Action is nice N low. Plays great. Very happy with this guitar. It's plain black unlike the picture.
