I have very mixed feelings about this guitar. Over all this guitar gets very average marks. However, it does have the potential to be a monster axe. The B. C. Rich Mockingbird Pro X Custom with some tweaks could easily become your No. 1. Full disclosure I am a huge Mockingbird fan, I have a Mockingbird tattoo. But it is going to take some work before I am a fan of the Pro X Custom.

Let's talk about the pros of this guitar first. The B. C. Rich Mockingbird Pro X Custom is a beautiful guitar. Today we are reviewing the trans red mahogany guitar with a gorgeous quilt maple top. Adding to the esthetics are a bound body, neck and headstock. The binding work is meticulous with very tight seams.

The 24 fret neck has slick diamond inlays along it's rosewood fingerboard. The neck is set with a very smooth flat joint that gives easy access to the upper frets.

The bridge is a more that serviceable Floyd Rose special. The Floyd came well setup and intonated nicely. The action was a tad too high for shred but more that low enough for the majority of players. An easy enough to fix issue. This is about where this guitar stops shining.

The first disappoint with this guitar is the tuners. They look nice enough one quick turn of the tuners confirms looks can be deceiving. I could feel a bit of play in the tuners before the gear would engage. This was not in one tuner but a characteristic in all in the set.

The disillusion continued when plugging in the guitar. The active B.C. Rich active humbuckers leave a lot to be desired. They are thin sounding and lack luster. Knowing the audience of this guitar, these pickups are not going to get you kids the high gain tones you are searching out. Popping the pickups in the middle position to get a bit more bottom gave me more bass. It also resulted in a huge lack of string definition. I am not a fan of active pickups. What surprised me was I don't think active pickup fans will be too happy with the tone of this guitar.

When purchasing this guitar I knew the active electronics would be gutted. There is a high gain prototype alnico 6 waiting to be placed in this beast. What I didn't know then but I do know now is the tuners will also have to be upgraded. With a few upgrades this will be a fantastic guitar. However it is very average out of the box.

    Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

    We all know great gear can get extremely expensive but this guitar was perfect for me and my band and bands budget. The body feels amazing and it plays as if it was a $800+ bcrich mocking beard. The picks up, for being stock pick up, are actually really good!! When I bought it I was planning to switch them out with EMGs but the. After playing I thought to myself about just keeping them! They are powerful and sweet and gives out a different sound
    I feel absolutely in love with it so I highly recommend it and you won't regret it

    Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

    This guitar for the price is incredible. it's not your grandfather's guitar, this one wants to be played loud and fast.. I paid about $400 with a hard shell case so I was kind of worried what I was getting.. I have 2 other guitars , Gibson Les Paul traditional peace model and my American made 1985 Peavey Milestone (one of the best guitar necks and pickups ever made in my opinion) This Bc Rich is as good as both! Floyd Rose, active pickups and a neck as smooth as silk.. I love it.

      Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

      Glossy black finish with white binding is shiny and smooth. The FR Special bridge is pretty smooth and stable as well. Stays in tune with "abuse". Keeping it lubricated may extend it's performance.

      The 9-46 gauge strings from the factory are a great blend of power and flexibility. After tuning it, this guitar will hold up to any other Metal guitar you own.

      I love mahogany (neck & body) and rosewood (fretboard), so this guitar always sounds good to me. Add in the crunchy-sounding active pickups and hybrid-gauge D'Addario strings and it's like B.C. Rich made this guitar exactly for me. ;-)

      Fun little guitar, smaller frett board helped my 12yr old fall in love with it. Strings are close with the taper neck so took a little getting use to. To me it sounds great with just a bit of fret buzz but may be more amp settings than anything.

      Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

      If your reading this then you seen what I did, A thing of beauty. I must say that they built this with the looks being NO.1.It does not stop there with a neck thru body and a battle tank for a bridge. Headed off by active pickups with independent volume and tone for each one for perfect blending of your tones. It would be very hard to find a better deal at this price anywhere. I did find the strap knob on the top cut away in the back threw the balance of the guitar off, I know some guitars are made like this but I hate it and have moved this under the top cut away to bring it back into balance, ( don't do this if you don't know what your doing )I am sure they did this just for the looks. I also found that the intonation was out on all the strings by a lot and have redone the bridge and have upgraded to a 10-46 set of strings and tightened up the springs to make up for the change. don't let the changing in the bridge scare you every guitar I have bought has had to have the intonation set and I recommend you have a music store you trust and have it set and you will be glad you did, this guitar plays as well as it looks and I would suggest it to everyone. This is one well built guitar and you will be proud to own it and play it, and one that can be seen from across the room and the envy of all your friends wanting to play it.

        The Floyd had excessive torque to adjust, the low e might fail. For the application, it's AWESOME. I'm going to place a dimmargio super distiortion humbucker on the bridge pickup, and it wiilll Kiilll. Rankinstein

        Comments about B.C. Rich Pro X Custom Mockingbird Electric Guitar:

        Three Ninety Nine is about what these guitars are at all worth, don't ever pay more, they aren't worth it. They are far from fine instruments, and aren't good for anything more than shredding. The stock pickups are complete junk...I replaced mine with a Zakk Wylde EMG set and it woke up the tone. Its an ultra-shredder now, but trying to get any other type of tone out of it (even before the PU change) is impossible. It just wants to rock and that's it. A good guitar for metal/hard rock, but realize its a one trick pony.
