Hi!
I have a BC Rich Mockingbird, and I need to buy some new strings for it.
Problem is, I've never had one of these before, I bought it second hand and so I don't know what strings to buy for it!
I'm rhythm guitarist in a band and generally play heavy stuff.
Haven't got too much of a budget issue I guess, I might have to ask for them for Christmas if they're too expensive for me, but I don't want something completely overpriced lol.

Help would be appreciated, I'm a bit of a noob and don't want to annoy my guitar store guys TOO much lol.

Unless the scale is excessively long or the nut is cut excessively narrow, you can use any strings with any guitar.

but strings are cheep dude be willing to try a lot out, its all about preference

B.C Rich don't need strings. Honestly, their tonal response is so good you can literally play with out them.

You don't just buy new strings for a BC Rich.

For a guitar that metal, you have to dissect a black cat alive at the full moon and stretch its guts into strings.

Or maybe that's for a violin, I don't remember.
