id really like to own one of these

USA BC Rich Mockingbird ... I know ive talked and talked and talked about wanting a historic, but honestly id be equally happy owning one of these. They have always appealed to me from a very young age.

Those are great guitars, albeit a little pointy for me.

Have you ever played one Bling? They are certainly different, I have always personally been undecided as to whether I like them or not.

I do like the finish on this one though. Very nice.

I love mockingbirds. Played one with 8's on it, through a Marshall half stack. Shredding heaven.

Re: id really like to own one of these

One of my all time favorite solos and a Mockingbird to boot! Craig Chaquico and his Pink Mockingbird on my favorite Starship tune. The solo absolutely kills! For the impatient types, skip ahead to 2:45 and enjoy!

I consider it a serious waste of beautiful wood and fittings. My opinion means squat, but you asked for it.
