Up for sale, a 2008 B.C. Rich Mockingbird ST electric guitar in near mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original padded gigbag. A remarkable value in terms of build quality, premium woods, tonal options, and top shelf hardware, the Mockingbird ST features neck through construction with a AAA quilted maple top and thick slab genuine ebony fretboard. Grover Super Rotomatic tuners and a genuine USA-made Floyd Rose vibrato are standard fare on this model, and the guitar comes equipped with the original Seymour Duncan Designed HB-103 humbuckers. The guitar boasts a ton of tonal versatility, with a five-way rotary Varitone switch, individual coil tap mini toggles for each humbucker, and a phase mini toggle too. From thick churning high gain to spanky, sparkling cleans, this Mockingbird covers a ton of tonal ground. The guitar weighs 8lbs 15oz, with near endless sustain given the neck through construction. We've had this B.C. Rich professionally dialed in here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with fresh 9-42 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.
The maple neck has a slender C shape with modest shoulder and lightly rolled fretboard edges, measuring .785" deep at the 1st fret and .870" at the 12th. The slab ebony fretboard features diamond inlay and stock jumbo fretwire. The medium jumbo frets are flawless with perfectly rounded crowns, and the guitar plays well up the straight neck with an ideally adjusted and responsive truss rod, conforming to traditional specifications with a 24 3/4" scale length, 12" fretboard radius, and locking nut that measures 1 11/16" in width. On the headstock, the black genuine Grover Rotomatic tuners feature the iconic stair-stepped buttons of the Imperial design, with an extremely smooth and reliable gear ratio.
On the body, the electronics function as they should, and all of the stock knobs and switches are intact. The genuine USA-made Floyd Rose vibrato functions effortlessly for the deepest divebombs, and the original screw-on arm is included. The maple neck through body is framed by mahogany wings and capped with AAA quilted maple highlighted by a high gloss Transparent Blue finish. Cosmetic wear is limited to just a few faint finish scuffs on the back, and one small spot on the treble-side edge of the top where the clear coat has delaminated (finish is stable and well-adhered along this entire edge). The neck sports a flawless smooth gloss finish on the profile.
The original B.C. Rich-branded gigbag is included.
