+1 on the Burny Pickups. I have nearly the exact late 80's Black '62 style Burny that Marc... has if memory serves me correct. I like the frets and neck shape better than the gibson 62 reissues. My ...

There would be no serial # except on the bridge plate "A-######", right?

I bought this guitar. It's 6.6 pounds of happiness! I guess it is a late eighties RSG-75-63 from what I've read on hear.

The pickups (VH-1?) are maybe the best of any of my humbucker guitars (i h ...

Anyway to know for sure what year and what kind of pickups are in the guitar that's for sale? Sounds to me like the VH-1 pups are very highly regarded on this forum.

No someone else got it. Thanks for the info though. I'm really a novice when it comes to Greco's. Do the early to mid 80's Greco SG's have the more accurate crown inlay?

Thanks

So maybe nitro maybe not, but a good thin finish regardless.

How is the "Mint Collection" regarded? Midline model?

I don't know. Looking at Tokai specs helped me realize something that Tokai and other Japanese companies do well and something that I felt others on this forum would appreciate. Unfortunately, I've ...

Thanks for correcting my assumptions about the Burny's. I assume anything numbered 85 and above from the current line is MIJ for all models (ES, P-90's etc)? I assume they sell for about $800-$900 ...

Where do Burny's cross over from MIC to MIJ? Are the "55" models MIJ? Are they all long neck tenon? I presume they don't make a nitro finished guitar?

Definitely a whole new world of info to get up to speck on Greco's and Burny's. I wouldn't be against a guitar from the 90's. My biggest concern is fret life. I don't want to spend $800-$1000 on an ...

Sorry if this is in the wrong Forum.

Seem's like most people agree that the 59 style neck is by far the most popular. Every MIJ manufacture seems to get this. Nearly every model i've ever seen ...

Looks like Edwards LTS 98 or JP LTS 112 is my best option for the price and features I want. Maybe a stray LTS 130 could fit my price range at the right time on ebay.

Thanks for all the great replies and great information.

The myths behind nitro finishes may just be snake oil for all I know, but I do know that visually I can see a difference. I had made peace w ...
