As part of their Special Edition Series, B.C. Rich introduced the "Evil Edge" Mockingbird. This is a special edition Mockingbird -- therefore it has special features not found on other B.C. Rich instruments. The "Evil Edge" Mockingbird features a sustain enhancing 3mm brass bridge/tailpiece/pickguard that has been chrome covered.
Once the bridge and the metal pickguard/plate are attached -- it greatly improves sustain and overall tonal qualities, according to the company. This is not just a pickguard. It is actually an extension of the bridge.
The Evil Edge Mockingbird will exclusively be available in Onyx (Gloss Black). It will also feature: Chrome hardware -- rosewood fingerboard -- two humbucker BDSM B.C. Rich pickups -- two volumes / one master tone / three way toggle -- maple neck -- 25 1/2" scale -- 24 Jumbo frets. This model will fit in the existing Mockingbird case and B.C. Rich gig bags.
