    Hello guys !

    Looking for a nice vintage body shape that is a bit unusual... like the Bc Rich Mockingbird, or Rick.

    Ideas ?

    What are you going to to with it when you find it? Ideas for a project or are you just looking for pictures to enjoy?

    Actually, I'm looking to buy something that is unusual, not a classic P or J. And Longhorn is very sweet btw !

    Mockingbird is it for me.

    My College instructor made fun of mine. I told him I would trade it for a 6. He later beat out Patatucci for the Flame Top #5 Ken Smith made, never let me play it.

    Definitely, I would Choose a 6. All other Basses seem anemic.

    Either Ken Smith's Electronics, or just the Ibbie VariMidIII that I love so much right now.

    On the otherhand...

    perhaps if I was to spend the money I would have Status do a Headless 6 Knock off with Entwistle's Electronics and kill two of my curiosities at once.

    The question has cleared my apprehension on a Status. If there is a day for such a Status in my Life, that is what I will ask for, and if they do not have it, I will move along happy with my Stock BTB's and sub-1mm action.

    Mockingbird is ok, a bit neck divey and with awkward seeming reach to nut. Eagle, Bich, Warlock, balance better to me and have normal feeling reach to nut unlike mockingbird.

    This. Probably my favorite body shape of all time, hence (partially) why a similarly shaped Fano Px4 is my #1.
