Mockingbird Plus FR From B.C. Rich Takes Flight


HEBRON, KY – B.C. Rich debuts the latest addition to one of their bestselling lines, the Mockingbird Plus FR. The new model will make its first appearance at the 2014 NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Trade show this January in Anaheim, California. Inspired by the successful Mockingbird ST, the new Mockingbird Plus FR delivers the features which attracted players at nearly half the price.


Growing demand for a Mockingbird with a Floyd Rose bridge fuels the release of the new model. As one of the most in demand body shapes in the B.C. Rich line, the Mockingbird Plus FR is designated to be a top seller. Production models are being delivered to key dealers in January 2014.


The Mockingbird Plus FR features a mahogany body with a black vapor finish to highlight and detail the figured maple top. Complementing the 25 5/8” maple set-neck is a 24 fret ebony fretboard with a 12” radius, diamond inlays and the traditional B.C. Rich three on three headstock. The new set-neck design features a contour delivering the sonic advantages of a set-neck design with a comfortable neck joint normally only seen on neck-thru designs.


Additional highlights of the new model include the traditional Mockingbird electronics configuration of dual humbuckers with a master volume control, a master tone control and a three way toggle switch for maximum tone versatility. The Floyd Rose bridge, control knobs, strap buttons, locking nut, and die-cast tuners are all finished in a high gloss black to complement the black vapor finish.


Originally released in 1976, the B.C. Rich Mockingbird is ranked as “The Coolest Guitar of All Time”. With its eye catching design, the guitar has a noted list of users that include Slash, Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), Chuck Schuldiner (Death), Paolo Gregoletto (Trivium) and Rick Derringer.


MSRP: $640.00 USD
