Posted (edited)

Due to downsizing the collection decided to part ways with this bc rich mockingbird plus 5 string. Bass sounds and plays great. Very light at approx 7.7 lbs. There is a few small marks and a small finish crack in the neck pocket. I have also moved the strap pins to help with balance so there are a few extra holes! Collection preferred however may consider posting or meeting half way. Thanks

Very nice! What is the spacing at the bridge please?

I'll double check when I'm home but it's on the narrower side, I believe 17mm but will update you :)

The bride spacing can be adjusted with this "warwick-esque" bridge. You might be able to achieve 18/18,5mm. 

Oo-errrr, missus!

Although the bridge saddles have a grub screw, the spacing isn't adjustable as the saddles are the same width as the gaps. Seems like a terrible design 😂 I'm sure one of the ebay bridges would be a cheap way of getting string spacing adjustment

That looks like a hell of a lot of bass for the money - I used to own a US Custom Shop NT Eagle, but know nothing about this particular range so hope this isn’t a stupid question; but is the buckeye burl top a wood veneer, or printed “wood effect”?

In all honesty I'd imagine this is nowhere near one of their custom shop instruments, however it's a very very nice bass for the money. They're made in Indonesia, probably (I assume!) in a factory that makes many other brands. The burl top as far as I know is a veneer/actual wood and not a graphic. It's a lovely bass that is great as is, or would be a brilliant base for modding. I planned to fit an East pre and some dimarzio pickups along with some gotoh tuners. However a house move and too many impulse buys have put an end to my plans 😂

Thanks for info 👍. I’d assumed at that price it had to be Far Eastern made, but none the worse for that - in fact my old Eagle was affectionately known as “wonky” as the “R” headstock logo was a bit squiff - which would probably never happen in Indonesia!  

Always loved the Mockingbird bass since seeing Phil Lynott playing one (in fact his used to be owned, and still may be, by a member of BC).   Thinking of trying the “dark side” of 5 string once more after several failed attempts over the years, and this would be ideal.....🤔
