I know a lot of the other low-end BC Rich guitars (like the Warlocks) are crap, but I wondered if this one was any different. Plus I love the Mockingbird shape.

Use:
I have a Schecter Tempest Extreme with a DiMarzio HFH/Super Distortion set of pickups that I use for softer stuff, so this guitar is gonna be mostly for punk and metal. My budget is around $500AUD.
Alternatively, I could use my Schecter for heavier grunge/noise punk stuff and buy my mate's Epiphone Firebird for $550, and use that for softer stuff.

Which one is a better deal?

You're going from Schecter to BC Rich? That's like going from a Mustang to a Geo Metro.

i played one of those at the pawn shop for $199 i played it and was fairly impressed
unfortunatly i dont have money to throw around right now(if only i knew it was worth quiet a bit more than 199)

That Epiphone would be a much better guitar.

I'm keeping the Schecter. I just need a backup in case it goes ar$eways that won't cost me too much. I love both the Firebird and the Mockingbird shape and I've tried them both, but I couldn't really seperate them. So I came here to gauge your opinions on which is better put together and will last longer and is better for my stuff.

It has an agathis body, which isn't a particularly good tonewood. (but I don't believe it makes the biggest difference)

I wouldn't go for it though, it's still a low end BC Rich (thank the economy)
