The B.C. Rich Mockingbird Electric Guitar packs a lot more than impressive looks. It features neck-through construction with a mahogany body and clean lines that accentuate its exotic Burl maple top. The 3-ply mahogany neck has a beautifully functional heel-less joint, rosewood fingerboard, cloud inlays and a headstock with a lone “R” logo in beautiful abalone, set into bound, figured maple Burl. Electronics include high-output humbuckers and a standard control layout with individual neck/bridge volume controls and a Master Tone with ‘push-pull’ coil tap. Chrome hardware features a tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece and die-cast tuners. Includes hardshell case.

Here is as good as anywhere to write this. Last autumn, I wrote a furious review about BC Rich, having owned some of their mid-range guitars around 2009. I was disgusted that such a storied brand with some of the most iconic guitars released and played by big names--instruments once constructed well--had let themselves go to seed by 2016, represented by cheap junk efforts. I wrote humorously that someone out there was using the brand as a tax write off, and that BC Rich was sitting on potential gems, but had lost all pride. Then this 2017 lineup was released. Extraordinary. The stunning use of color on wood, the incredible showcased variety of quality mixes of wood itself--a lost and abandoned art since 2011--the burls, quilts, and figured tops, the neck-thru construction (not to be dismissed), the inlays sparing no details, the quality floyd tremolos, sonorous pickups (if I remember correctly), and rosewood fretboards....BC Rich has given us back a lineup that outshines its peers this year by leaps and bounds, and restored a brand that delivers gems. I'd buy about any one of these new Warlocks or Mockingbirds. For five bills and up, I'm venturing you can't go wrong as was once true. I'm guessing it's better, for all the aforementioned should yield solid playability and a real keeper. These are NEW new BC Rich efforts. Welcome back , BC Rich. What a turn about! You've brought back a standard I thought largely gone industry-wide, particularly with wood, the alpha and omega. A 33 year player/collector/composer, I'm excited to be a customer again, and soon. Kudos!
