B.C. Rich Mockingbird Contour in translucent red

HEBRON, KY– Today B.C. Rich unveils the new Mockingbird Contour and Contour X production models. For years, one of the most in demand guitars from the B.C. Rich handcrafted shop has been the arch top Mockingbirds. In the past, the ability to duplicate the sleek and sultry details of the custom shop have been hard to reproduce on a factory floor but new technology and production methods bring the Contour to fruition. Although it is not the first production Mockingbird to have an arched top, it is the first to come anywhere close to what was being done in the handcrafted shop. Dubbed by insiders as the “sharp arch mock,” the steep contoured top creates a seductive appeal when combined with the even thinner and lighter body of the production pieces.

B.C. Rich Mockingbird Contour SeriesThe Mockingbird Contour features a mahogany body with either a gloss black or gold top finish. Complementing the 25 5/8” mahogany set-neck is a 24 fret rosewood fretboard with a 12” radius, classic cloud inlays and the traditional B.C. Rich three on three headstock. The long-set neck design features a contoured all access neck joint normally only seen on neck-thru designs.

Highlighting the new Contours are the new Hot-Hex B.C. Rich pickups. Sonically matched to the new design, the humbuckers are teamed up with neck and bridge volume controls, a master tone control and a 3-way pickup selector for sonic versatility. The stop tail piece, bridge, control knobs, strap buttons, and tuners are all finished in chrome.

The Contour X includes all the features of the Contour but adds a quilted maple top. Available in either a gloss natural or translucent red, the transparent finished combined with figured top create an elegant energy.

Originally released in 1976, the B.C. Rich Mockingbird is ranked “The Coolest Guitar of All Time” as voted by the readers of Guitar World magazine.
