I received this Mockingbird STQ from zzounds yesterday and my first impressions are very good. It's beautiful to look at - flawless finish - and in perfect working order. It came with D'addario XL strings - I'm guessing 10s - which I changed out for Super Slinky 9s. Intonation and saddle height needed a little adjusting; now the neck feels great. The "Duncan designed" pickups sound fine through my fender frontman 65R. There's a good tone spread between the neck and the bridge with the bridge having lots of cutting crunch with the OD pedal on. One reason I chose this model is I didn't want a floyd rose whammy bar/bridge and locking nut. The hard tail and regular nut make it easy to change and tune the strings. The tuners seem fine, and the tuning heads, well I don't know what to make of them :) , but they can be changed down the road if I necessary.

Now for some pics :thumb:

So far so good :) I see that you have the same model and finish - good choice :thumb: The only "con" I'm seeing so far is its' a little neck heavy - about the same as my Dot - but it's easy enough to compensate. By the way, do you have a hard case? gig bag?

Just wanted to follow up regarding a case. I decided to get a gig bag since the Mockingbird HSC is quite expensive; found one called a Rockbag for half the price of an HSC.

It's really well made with plush lining, thick cushioning and lots of pockets :)
