I just picked up a BC Rich NJ Classic Series Classic Heritage Mockingbird and I'm a little confused, all the ones I see that sold new don't say NJ Classic Series on the headstock, otherwise it seems to be the exact same. Gorgeous bass, dat neck-thru, dat flame...dat top heaviness. But yeah, just looking for some info about it, how much it's worth, etc. The newer ones seem to retail at $800

No, that Samick isn't mine, this is a pic the previous owner took.

no idea but that's really nice I love mockingbirds, I have a guitar version (and it's neck-heavy too )

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Well, seems like the bass has the same size body, so it's really bad on the bass version >_>

B.C. Rich sometimes changes the designations on their instruments; particularly if they expand a particular product line. Your bass is now designated the "B.C. Rich Heritage Classic Mockingbird Bass." It is currently their top-of-the-line production bass with a Mockingbird shape, as they do not list the Mockingbird ST anymore). Your bass has a neck-through design, maple neck, ebony fretboard with "Cloud" inlays, and a quilted maple veneer over a Nato (a type of mahogany) body.

It is a nicely made bass, though many people complain that it is prone to neck diving (like a great many other basses on the market today). Personally, the only thing I would ever do to that bass is - maybe - swap out the pickups for a set with a little more "punch," but many people like them just as they are. I have not seen them listed in stores new for a while; they probably sell for around US$700.00 to $800.00, but that is just a guess.

HNBD! Enjoy it!
