    Koamock2.jpg Circa summer 1978 Koa shorthorn Mockingbird bass. Excellent condition. Restored by former BCR employee Neal Moser and crew. Truss rod was replaced with newer 2 way rod, Neal redid the circuit , new Dimarzio DP122 pick ups, new clear coat, bass looks, plays and sounds like new, very minor if any wear and tear, expensive restoration , I have a chance to purchase a former BCR bass I once owned, original hard shell case in very good condition included 20180109_160111.jpg

    Neck profile is somewhere between a C and a U in my opinion, very nice feeling neck, my scale broke but it is on the lighter side for a BCR bass, it's pretty comparable with my quilt maple Mock which is 9.1lbs. 20180127_214807.jpg

    I feel like my price is very fair, the work done on it cost over $1500 , a twin to this sold back in November for $3400 and went to it's new home in Australia (I know the owner) Screenshot_20180128-130439.png

    Most vintage BC rich basses play VERY WELL. This one has the right electronics as well. I hope it sells if not hit up Brian at the Lowend he used to have a thing for these.

    thanks for the tip, I really like this one and will most likely be taking it off the market soon, I have a 70's shorthorn Mock in maple with a purple burst finish I'll put up in it's place ............

    I can’t sfford this which hurts in ways no one can ever know as this is quite literally my holy grail bass (I’m a diehard Mock player) GLWTS
