so, i got an offer from a pal
the deal is a bc rich bronze mockingbird with non working volume pot/who knows what else for 80e (new one is 250e)

and another mate is swapping his ibanez inf3&4-s for emg-s, so he can sell me those(inf-s) for like 20e.

so im thinking of buying the mockingbird, getting it repaired and pickup changed in one run
what do you think? i need the second guitar for drop c....

I played the thing and really hated it, but maybe thats just personal taste!

Can't be much more help i'm afraid.

You really want to stay away from the Bronze series BC Rich guitars. I love the Mocking Bird and I have a great one but it's an NJ Series. I am assuming 80e is Euros? That seems pricey for a used Bronze series guitar that barley works. I would not pay more than $50.00 US for it and I would only use it for the body and maybe the neck.

The pickups might help sure, but the general quality of everything else is what's going to crap out on you.

You may be changing the pickups, but you're hardly getting great ones.

Don't get the cheap B.C. Riches, if you get a B.C. Rich, get a high end one.

I would only use the body. Tell him you only want the body for less than 80 then spend the money you're saving on a neck and hardware. Make it custom.

Why would you spend tens of thousands of dollars to learn about a language you already speak? It was over before it even started dude

I played a bronze Warlock for a while. The was that bad for a beginner who know much but if you're going to be putting money in to this guitar you won't want this neck. That's my opinion.

I owned a platinum Mockingbird. It was a horrid instrument. No life whatsoever.
