Just stumbled onto this thread! I am the previous owner. Guitar was sold to me from Russia and described as a 2001 Handmade. Seller did not disclose the neck reset or crack. If you google 2001 Bacchus Handmade SG, the Reverb listing that I purchased the guitar, from should pop up. I did try to gathe...

A used Crews Maniac Sound KTR is also a great value. I have a 2012 plaintop Standard that I purchased for $1400 plus shipping. Neck is 30 year air dried mahogany. Rest of the woods are newer growth. Very light and resonant guitar. Excellent hardware, full nitro finish and amazing pickups. I play it ...

Original poster says the hardware was upgraded. Are the pickups original? Can we see shots of the pickup control cavity?

Original poster says the hardware was upgraded. Are the pickups original? Can we see shots of the pickup control cavity? Is the finish poly or nitro? Use a little acetone in one of the pickup cavities to see if it removes any finish.

L8001 pickups were only used very early on. They weren’t around in the mid 80s and early 90s Burny Guitars. More likely a VH4 or a 2nd version VH1, which are different from the original VH1. I’ve had a couple Burnys with the brass bottom plate and grey wire. Nothing to write home about.

I believe those truss rod covers were used late 80s/early 90s. Pickups could be the 2nd version VH-1 or VH4. I’ve never been a fan of the Burny Pickups. Never tried the earlier VH1 or L-8001 pickups, but never cared for the stock mid 80s through early 90s pickups. Then again, never tried them with a...

I have a BSG Handmade Classic Series that is one of my favorite guitars. Original pickups were pretty bad. The guitar itself is super resonant and light and sounds “old”. I replaced pickups with Rewind Low Wind. As good as my Gibson and 80s Tokai Guitars. The 90s Burny Guitars are fantastic. At leas...

I have a 90s bound Tele Custom. It’s a phenomenal guitar. Everything is stock, but I did clip the treble bleed cap.

Guitar arrived. Damage is worse than I thought...crack wraps around the back of the headstock. Headstock wasn't broken off and repair seems stable. Sounds and plays beautifully though! Pickups sound fantastic! Haven't pulled them to see what they are yet, but they sound much more open and articulate...

No, seller says the crack is pretty minor. Although it was repaired prior to his ownership.

Thanks gents! Crack seems to go from the bottom of the bottom left tuner to the side of the headstock. Back of the headstock looks clean. Seller says it was a very well done repair. Got it for $725 shipped and Paypaled. Pic of the headstock crack- http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/AbbeSauniere/...

Burny RSA-? Flametop

I have a 80s Burny RSA-? on the way. Top and back are mildly flamed. Any idea what model numbers came with flame Maple? Seller thought it was a '85 RSA-100, but the split "flower" inlay and truss rod cover with "wings" indicates '87 or later to me. Bought for a very nice price in my opinion because ...
