B.C. RICH ST MOCKINGBIRD

All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [français]

B.C. RICH ST MOCKINGBIRD

The Mockingbird ST is the most popular model in the Mockingbird family. The heart of the ST is its Floyd Rose Original tremolo and a pair of Rockfield Mafia pickups. These high output pickups are controlled with a selection of knobs and switches that include a 5 position varitone filter knob, two coil tap switches and a reverse phase switch. The neck-through construction also assures great tone and full fingerboard access. Other goodies include an ebony fingerboard, diamond inlays and Grover tuners. Both the Transparent Red and Honey burst color options perfectly highlight this model’s quilt maple top.

The B.C. Rich Mockingbird ST features maple neck through construction, a nato mahogany body with AAA quilted maple veneer, and a Floyd Rose Original tremolo. It’s equipped with Rockfield Mafia Pickups, coil tap switches, reverse phase switch and the 5-position tone knob. Inspired by a Mockingbird that a certain top hat-wearing legend plays, the Mockingbird ST is, in many ways, very true to the original.

Neck-Through Construction

Neck-Through construction is used on the Mockingbird ST because it provides the best possible sustain, resonance, comfort and access to higher frets. Neck-through has long been considered the premium construction method for high-end guitars. This construction starts with a long piece (or pieces) of premium North American maple. That piece runs from the tip of the headstock to the strap button on the opposite end of the guitar. This means that the headstock, fingerboard, pickups, and bridge all are mounted to this single sound foundation. Sonically it is a difference you can hear. The neck-through construction also allows deeper cutaways, providing comfort no bolt-on or set-neck could offer.

Rockfield Pickups - Mafia Bridge Pickups

The use of a ceramic magnet gives any pickup extra power due to the increased magnetic field they provide. This feature makes the Mafia pickups produce a hotter and thicker tone that’s really aggressive and full. The increased low end, thick mids and in your face highs is what rock and roll was built on! Balanced and full of sustain this pickup is a great representation of its namesake, a truly intimidating killer.

Neck Pickups

The neck version of the Mafia pickup is just as full sounding as the bridge position, without taking away from what has already been accomplished. Very minor modifications to the overall design and design concept of this pickup gives it punchy, bold tone with the same aggressive characteristics as the bridge version. A tad brighter with a little less output really takes this pickup into the smooth and warm realm of the tonal spectrum. All while maintaining that balanced bite and in-your-face aggressive tone that the Mafia is known for.

Beveled Top

The Mockingbird ST Electric Guitar employs a beveled edge around the shape. In many ways, bevels on a top are similar to facets on a cut stone. They catch the light and reflect at different angles giving the instrument more of a three dimensional look.
