    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. :cool:

    ive only had the pleasure of playing them in pawnshops and music stores. we never see anything nice like that at our local store though. Ive gotten to play a few of them in some of the stores in Roanoke though.

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

    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! :thumb:
