    Well here I go doing something I never thought I'd do again. I was talking with someone at a local shop by me about getting a 6 string off of him. So after talking me and him made a deal where I gave him my Rockbass Corvette and he gave me a Rouge 6 string. Well I was about to leave his shop and I saw his mockingbird sitting on its hanger. I've been eyeballing this bass for a while now and I brought it up to him again today and he brought up another trade. My beat up German Warwick Corvette for this 20160302_184214.jpg 20160302_184231.jpg 20160302_172609.jpg 20160302_184253.jpg It's a Heritage Classic Mockingbird. I'm still not sure if it was a great trade or not but I'll give it time to actually sink in and get used to it. First impressions are that it's really comfortable to play and fits nicely on me. And it just looks amazing! The tone is pretty meh right now but it needs new strings bad. I feel kind of weird without my Warwicks though. We agreed that the first month if we decide it doesn't work out we can return the basses. You guys think it's a decent trade?

    Wow, really nice looking bass!! Not too unexpected as it is a Rich after all ;) Like the way the colors mesh, and the inlay's are the icing on the cake. Looks the part for sure, hope it plays it, too. HNBD!

    I know the color combo is really great. And the black ebony FB really adds to the vibe of the bass. It plays pretty good. It's hard to tell from the pics but the headstock also matched that quilting the body has. The bass definitely fits the metal look

    Always loved the mockingbird shape. The only BC Rich I really dig, but I hate the way they balance.

    Yeah it feels like a Thunderbird when strapped. The first thing I gotta do if I decide to keep it is get a better strap

    That Mockingbird is freakin' beautiful! As for "was it a good trade": well... if you are happy, it doesn't matter. The Warwicks are MUCH easier to find, and the selling prices I have seen for the two are fairly close (I was shopping both when I bought my ST)

    My German was far from perfect condition, whole body was beat up, big scratches and dents, a big hole covered up by a control plate and not to mention the fretboard coming apart by the nut. He had this for sale for 500 and did an even trade. The BC is in perfect condition. I still need to get used to them
