Up for sale, a 1990s Fernandes Mockingbird in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. Crafted in Japan, this Fernandes-made iteration of one of BC Rich's most popular models is essentially an MG80-X, the signature model for Hide of the band X, with a control layout reflective of the original '70s Mockingbird design. The guitar shares the unmistakable body and headstock shape, cloud inlays, and hot pickups of the venerable B.C. Rich Mockingbird. With a Master Volume knob, a three-way pickup selector switch, dedicated mini toggle coil tap switches for each humbucker, and Volume and Tone controls for each pickup, the tonal options are vast. The pickups are cutting and thick, with a Dimarzio Super Distortion-esque humbucker in the neck position with a double cream bobbin, and a bridge humbucker more in line with an EMG. These pickups interact well with high gain and providing plenty of chunk and power. Lightweight at 6lbs 14oz, this Fernandes Mockingbird has been professionally setup here at Mike and Mike’s Guitar Bar with fast action and accurate intonation.


The maple neck has a slender C shaped profile, fast-feeling with limited taper up the fretboard, measuring .770” deep at the 1st fret and .845” at the 12th. The bound rosewood fretboard features pearloid cloud inlays and the stock medium jumbo frets which are virtually flawless, playing cleanly up the 24 3/4" scale. The nut measures 1 11/16" in width. On the headstock, a large “F” is inlaid on the rosewood veneer in typical B.C. Rich fashion, and the chrome set of Gotoh tuners turn smoothly and hold their pitch well.


The electronics function as they should, and the hardware is clean as can be including the intonatable wraparound tailpiece. Cosmetically there are some light finish scratches on the body, mostly along the back lower bout edge, and there is a small finish chip on the tip of the treble side body point. The neck profile is pristine save for a couple minuscule dimples in the clear coat.
