I've wanted a Mockingbird since I was like 14. I've always liked the shape, it's aggressive and elegant. It took me nearly 15 years to finally pull the trigger, and I am absolutely ecstatic. I always thought it would be a great guitar for heavier music, but I've found the clean tone ridiculously inspiring all on its own. it's a slightly hot, but rolling the volume down a bit and it's golden. The set neck is gorgeous. I'm not a fan of big old metal plates on the backs of my guitars, so I love the set neck. Everything about this guitar is amazing. I absolutely love it. This is likely to be the guitar I pass down to my children.
