a nice find... a bc rich?
It has been a little while.
I was browsing a discount/closeout stock store and they had a BC rich mockingbird. I have always liked the shape but never really thought about getting one. I mean come on... Buy a BC rich? They put out some terrible quality for a long time, but this mockingbird looked awesome and had a bunch of switches and was neck through. Turns out the model is called STQ.
So I played it and was instantly impressed. The finish was solid, no sloppy tape jobs or neck binding. The fret ends are shaped and rounded perfect. The action really low given that it was a factory setup. I can't find anything wrong other than the fact it was made by BC rich.
I bought it and really enjoy it. I plan on changing out the pickups, the stock Duncan 103s aren't bad though.
I would recommend this guitar to someone looking for a les Paul style guitar, but want a little more unique look.
