    Those look awesome and distinctive
     
  3. Subbed. I've had GAS for a Mockingbird for a long time, I seem to have a thing for off-the-beaten-path looking basses (I own Thunderbirds, a Longhorn, a Steinbergers etc). Will look forward to the BCR purists responses to this thread.

    FWIW I seem to recall reading somewhere here that the new ones aren't particularly well thought of but don't hold me to that.
     
  4. I can't find anything about the new ones anywhere. No info, no reviews, no opinions, nothing

    none
    Still remind me of an Army P38 can opener.
     
  6. I like it, but when I see a dual-P pickup arrangement on a BC Rich, I want a confusing array of knobs & switches to keep things under control...

    For the price it would be easy to put in quality pickups and preamp. They would sound very good
     
  8. I had a warlock back in the day. Always great basses and solid like a tank
     
  9. There's a BCR club on here somewhere I believe (no time to search it right now). I know the late 70's - early 80's are considered the best versions built and command prices of $1K and up. Pretty sure if we can find the BCR club thread and maybe get some of those folks to chime in we could learn about the newer ones. When I get some time...

    I'm pretty new to bass, Just found a mockingbird that I managed to bargain down to €60. Is that a good deal? And does anyone know how to date these things. The serial number is 31120576.
