The maple neck and rosewood fingerboard allow for fast manoeuvrability and a comfortable surface.
The MK1's high output humbuckers are great for turning up your gain, as well as picking up the wood's tone for notes with depth.
I love the BC Rich Mockingbird shape - it's metal, but still has these classy curves, looks like a cross between an Ibanez Iceman (for the large wing under the neck), Les Paul (for its smooth curves), and a Jackson Kelly (large top end corner behind the bridge). 600 Euros for one of the highest end BC Rich Mockingbirds (i.e. Right now, my first and only guitar is an Ibanez RG350dx and I'm quite used to having a pretty fast neck, a double locking floating trem and a 25.5" scale neck, all of which the BC Rich Mockingbird doesn't have. Edit: This video gives the Mockingbird ST a pretty bad review... v=Uo3flpin D2I Is this really the case with the quality of modern Mockingbirds?
But, like any other player, I'm concerned about playability.
Reading his ' Rants' page is just priceless. I love the Koa Mockingbird from Miami, but was reluctant about the 00 price tag site unseen. Good luck, Dave I love these guitars too-these are mine. All the dealers think guitar players all want the same thing and don't want anything unusual. It may be the same phenomena that explains the abundance of bass players around these here parts. I'm just not one who wants the same thing everyone else does (I've NEVER owned a Fender).
So when I can buy at laugh out loud prices because 'it's one of then FUNNY basses', I'm more than happy to take it off their hands.
I just really don't like that style of neck, and I'm also used to the satin finish on my neck vs the high gloss painted finish.
