Can't say I'd pay much for that

Probably £250 tops, mainly for the sustainer

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

And there is a lot more to a guitar than its specs. How well is it put together? High level of craftsmanship? Good wood, bad wood? etc...

....plus add the cost of assembling it and painting, which will take the most amount of time and be the costliest. Also, if you want a finish on the neck that'll cost extra also

I think you're stupid and you cant put a price on stupidity. I would pay nothing for that, infact you'd have to pay me to hold that thing.

rip off. if you really want that guitar buy a decent BC Rich for that price. Burny Guitars really just make copies. the paint job is definitely unique, but i'd pay extra just to not have that paint job.

Close but no cigar. Should of done a strat they all share pretty much the same specs and yet they go from $500 all the up to $4000 or in extreme cases they go for 5 figures for a good vintage model. Basically specs while playing a part cost there are alot more factors that need to be taken into consideration.

as a collector and defender of all mockingbirds, i must say that is the worst fackin mock (copy) i've ever seen

i love the shape of these things, when i'm 50 i'll have hundreds of them, but that has to be the WORST THING IVE SEEN!!!

for that money, buy a mockingbird st. seriously, great guitar

dont waste your cash on that atrocity or i will burn your house down hopefully with the guitar inside

Thanks for the opinions guys. I figured you would know if it were a ripoff.

I decided to go with the good ol' BC Rich Mockingbird ST Floyd Rose instead.
Seems like a much more bang for the dollar.

Nobody would have guessed 1500 from those crap specs. So no rice.

And yes, total hide fanboy. The good kind though. The kind that truly appreciates the art.

I made an account to this forum specifically to see if that guitar was a piece of shit and you helped me out dramatically! Still getting the BC painted though. Professionally of course (I can't help it, I love that grotesque paint job ^^).

Btw the "good" version of that guitar is called the MG-360S which is neck through and made out of much better things. The only down side is that it runs at about 3000. Why so expensive? Because its a "hide signature model" and only about 100 were made. You aren't paying for the guitar, you are paying for his name.
