For many, many, many years my dream guitar, my "holy grail" guitar has been a late 70's/early 80's USA BC Rich Mockingbird with birdseye maple, bells & whistles electronics, and diamond inlays instead of clouds. I've been looking for ages. The few I've seen for sale were priced at $3,500.00 and up. Not that these old BCRs aren't worth it, it's just too much money for me to spend on a guitar. Once in a while a refin and/or finish stripped example pops up but usually when they do it's not what I wanted, or I didn't have the money at the time. Well yesterday a perfect storm happened. The exact guitar I want (all original), for a really great price, while I had the money to buy it. I don't get it until Wednesday or Thursday though . After that let the neck dive begin . 1980 USA BC Rich Mockingbird My patience has finally paid off.
