Do you really think that Burny was able to sell a chinese guitar at 100000 Yen in 2002 ?
The answer is, of course, no.
The problem is when guitars might be sold as something they ain?t...
Koubayashi has a lot of experience with MIJ-guitars and he believes that this Burny RSA100 - with a sticker/serial starting with 021XXXX - is made by Tokai in Japan. He also says that it?s a great guitar, and I believe him.
The red Burny RSA100 - with a sticker with the serial 0212021 - from Ishibashi is believed to be Chinese.
Both are called RSA100, both have a headstock without the flower, both have a sticker in the upper f-hole with a serial starting with "021" both sold in the same price range ( The Red one = 47,800 yen. The burst = 59,800 yen). The only thing that seems to be different (from what one can tell in the pics) is the TRC, but such a thing can easily be changed.
To me it?s hard to tell the difference between the two...
They both might be equivalent to a Tokai ES 110, or maybe just the Burst is - the cherry being Chinese - or they might both be Chinese
I might buy this guitar (the burst). I just want to be sure of what I?m buying and that the price is right.
The same goes for Koubayashi, he want to be sure of what he is selling and that the price corresponds to that.
All information about an instrument is vital for both buyer and seller!
