Pots, caps, trc and bridge have all been changed out.
Pots and caps seems original. Noble ones for this era.

Clearly a Dyna RLC. I've got an RLC from a few weeks later which looks all MIJ, with the exception of the electronics - small pots, different pickups.

But I have a question, I took out the neck pickup and saw this, I never saw this before in any topic so I h...

1999 to Korea but China move was later, just check serial and you will see a letter of difference in the serial number.... There currently isn't any solid proof it was to Korea (if you have any specific info, let's have it), although we've thought it to be due to the practice of scarf joint necks. ...

Re: Burny SG from the 80's what is it and what are the picku

I assume this is a mid 80's SG maybe late 80's early 90's. Anyone know what is up with the pickup routing? Is this a Fujigen made SG? I know they made Burnys in the mid 80-early 90. I heard they did more bolt on neck guitars during that time (Fenders) and did not do many set neck guitars. So, I rea...

What guitar do you have? Post some photos and we'll see. They first started moving production offshore around 1988, gradually expanding it through the 90s and from ca 2000 most of it was made there.

Looks like a 1988 LJ-55, the rock n roll versions came out in 1986 and ended 1993 I think, Burny serials usually have the year has as the first number so can only be 1988. If it still has the original pots you should be able to date it to the month of manufacture too. Not a serial, but date. March ...
