B.C. Rich: Firebreather Mockingbird

Price paid: $ 329.4

Sound — 6
This guitar is mostly for metal, punk and mostly distorded and loud sounds. It sounds good when you play RATM or Megadeth and SOAD but it sound really bad when you try to play classic rock (Led Zeppelin, The Beatles etc). It also has some noise noise witch gets really anoying sometimes. This guitar is defenately not a versatile guitar!

Overall Impression — 8
This guitar is good for those who play metal, punk etc. but not for clasic rock and chill tunes. I've been using it for 2 years now and can't say that I'm not satisfied. If stolen/lost I'd buy something else. Defenately not a BC Rich because BC Rich guitars are not the versatile kind of guitars.

Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar is like stone, it has beenn hit on desks walls and mic stands but its still in a very good condition. The srap buttons are solid enough. This guitar is reliable enough to use on a gig but I rather use my Gibson SG because it has better sound but I use it as a backup.

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
THe guitar is set up preety well. The finihing is great. The pickups are adjusted very well. When I bought the guitar the tone knob was kinda loose but I fixed it. There is some buzz though on the 6th E string.

Features — 8
This guitar has a tone and a volume knob. It has a floyd rose remolo bridge, 2 pickus, a 3-way pickup selector and a picku. The top nut with the fine tuning system make fine tuning so much easier! The features are quite satisfing but I'd prefer 3 pickups and a 5-way pickup selector (like a Strat).
