Press Release:  Today B.C. Rich unveils the new Mockingbird Contour and Contour X production models. For years, one of the most in demand guitars from the B.C. Rich handcrafted shop has been the arch top Mockingbirds. In the past, the ability to duplicate the sleek and sultry details of the custom shop have been hard to reproduce on a factory floor but new technology and production methods bring the Contour to fruition. Although it is not the first production Mockingbird to have an arched top, it is the first to come anywhere close to what was being done in the handcrafted shop. Dubbed by insiders as the “sharp arch mock,” the steep contoured top creates a seductive appeal when combined with the even thinner and lighter body of the production pieces.
