Mockingbird SL Deluxe
Here BC Rich reminds us that they are the be all end all of neck-through construction with this stylish, zazzy mahogany neck that runs through a maple body. Laid on the top of the body is a generous serving of quilted maple and on the fretboard is a side of ebony. The SL Deluxe comes stock with Grover Rotomatic tuners, a Floyd Rose Original series tremolo, and two Seymour Duncan humbuckers with partial active electronics. You get an SH-2 at the neck and an SH-4 at the bridge. It’s available in transparent red, transparent purple, transparent black, and natural finish.
2012 Mockingbird ST
The newest edition of Mockingbird ST has a mahogany body with a mahogany neck that, you guessed it, features neck-through design. On the mahogany body is a finely cut AAA quilted maple top that is complimented by the ebony fretboard. It includes Grover Super Rotomatic tuners and a Floyd Rose 1000 series tremolo and it’s all complimented by the two Seymour Duncan designed HB-103 humbuckers. It’s available in pearl white and transparent blue.
2012 Mockingbird STQ
Continuing BC Rich’s 2012 Mockingbird models is the next installment of Mockingbird STQ. For the most part the specs are all the same as the Mockingbird ST. Neck-through. Mohogany neck and body with an ebony fretboard. Even the tuners and pickups match with Gover Super Rotomatics and Seymour Duncan HB-103 humbuckers. However instead of a Floyd Rose tremolo you get BC Rich’s Quad bridge. You also have a bit more variations in the top woods that match the finishes. Transparent purple gets the quilted maple, pearl white keeps a solid finish, and black burl gets a burl top.
2012 Pro X Mockingbird
Rounding off BC Rich’s 2012 Mockingbird models is the Pro X Mockingbird. It’s built out of mahogany with the mahogany neck-through construction going for it, and an ebony fretboard. The Pro X houses two EMG pickups with an 81 at the bridge and a 60 at the neck. It also features the return of Grover Super Rotomatic tuners. There are two variations of the Pro X Mockingbird, one that features a Floyd Rose Original tremolo and one that features a TonePros Tune-o-Matic bridge.
2012 Bich Doubleneck
Not one to know its place in the kitchen the new Bich Doubleneck comes out full force shaking its mahogany body like it owns the place. She’s all legs with her mahogany leg-through construction, and laced up in a pair of thigh high ebony fretboards. All tuners are Grover Super Rotomatic and both bridges are BC Rich Quads and all four humbuckers are Seymour Duncan designed HB-103. As is the tradition with doubleneck Biches it’s a 6-string 12-string setup with 6 strings run from the headstock to the body. While BC Rich deems the color pearl white I find French maid white to be a more suitible name so I’m sticking to that.
2012 Pro X Bich
Next up to bat is the new Pro X Bich. It’s built out of mahogany and includes a mahogany neck with neck-through construction that is topped off by an ebony fretboard. You can bind the souls of the strings from the TonePros Tune-o-Matic bridge up to the Gover Rotomatic tuners and to give this guitar its own sense of purpose it houses two EMG humbuckers. You get an 81 at the bridge and a 60 at the neck. The finish comes in the universally favored black cherry burst.
2012 Bich ST
The new Bich ST offers more or less the same features as the Mockingbird ST only in the package of a Bich instead. Mahogany body with a mahogany neck and neck-through construction. Grover Rotomatic tuners with a Floyd Rose 1000 series tremolo and finished off with Seymour Duncan HB-103 humbuckers. The 2012 Bich ST is available in transparent red and pearl white.
Bich 10 Supreme
To add a flair of texture to the Bich lineup BC Rich has introduced the new Bich 10 Supreme. Part of their handcrafted line this very manifestation of sexiness comes in the form of a 10-string mahogany bodied guitar with a mahogany neck that wears a silky smooth ebony fretboard all the while shaking that neck-through construction thing she has going for her. The tuners are Grover Mini Rotomatics and the bridge is a BC Rich Quad. So you can hear her opinion the next time you stay out late with the guys she has two Seymour Duncan humbuckers ready to hit volumes that only dogs can hear. You get an SH-2 in the neck and an SH-4 at the bridge. This seductive succubus is available in transparent red, transparent black, transparent purple, and natural for those that don’t like enhancements.
2012 JR V NJ Deluxe
Adding to the line of Vs BC Rich has introduced the new JR V NJ Deluxe. Of course this isn’t your grandma’s V. This V is built out of mahogany with a mahogany neck and an ebony fretboard. If you haven’t guessed by now it also has a neck-through construction. On top of that it has Grover Rotomatic tuners, a Floyd Rose Original tremolo and two EMG pickups. In the neck position you get an 85 and at the bridge an 81. This one can be yours in as many shades of pearl white as you could hope to choose from.
2012 NJ Warlock
Last, but certainly a far cry from least is the new NJ Warlock. What would BC Rich be without the Warlock? For this occasion their flagship model features a mahogany body and neck with the traditional neck-through construction with an ebony fretboard. It includes a set of EMG humbuckers and a Floyd Rose tremolo to fulfill any burning needs a shredding metal head might long for.
