B.C. Rich: NJ Classic Mockingbird

Purchased from: Total Guitar Mag

Sound — 9
The Mockingbird is mainly for like headbanger e.g. Kerry King of Slayer and Mick Thonpson of Slipknot. It has 2 humbuckers set with a beefy tone as standard with any Mockingbird and it deals particularly well with the classic distortion. It can be a light sound a heavy sound or like a middle class sound. It also has quite a lot of variety in the guitar, but mainly for headbangers.

Overall Impression — 9
I play all sorts, but mainy rock. It looks great, acts great, a great shape and a good sound. I can't stop playing it because basically I have fell in love with it. Well it's true as soon as you see it your eyes will melt. 1 thing that I have to say more than anything else is the look and colour. It's jus brillant. Also The sound is an amazing sound. It's very stable and will not fall apart. This is a must buy product.

Reliability & Durability — 9
Yes I think it could withstand a gig. Of course this is for headbangers and you will be jumping around anyway, so course it will be able to last for long. The strap buttons are very solid.

Action, Fit & Finish — 9
The guitar is well fixed up. There is a bolt on the neck for its secureness. All I can say really is that its a perfectly stable buy. The manafacturer Is very good so there would be no problems of it coming loose here and then.

This Guitar is a special edition BC Rich NJ Classic Series from Korea. This Mockingbird has lots of pottential and will be in handy untill you become pro. The Mockingbird has been around since the '70s and still the hots today with slash and acey slade of Guns N' Roses and Murderdolls using Mockingbird styles. It has a 24 ebony thretboard with a cloud sort of feature on some of the threts. The guitar is a orange/yellow sort of tan wood colour, Which i think is most spectacular colour iv'e ever seen in my life. It has a mahogany body along with a sleek maple top.
