As far as I remember, Fujigen went to that bevelled control cavity routing sometime around 1984 or so on the Grecos.
Before Fujigen changed the control cavity routing there was no bevelling, just waves, but it was different to what we see with the early 90s Burnys.

The bevelled control cavity routing is also on the Fujigen Orvilles from 1993 onwards.

I personally can't see Fujigen changing the way they do the control cavity routing just for the Burnys, so if these early 1990s Burnys are from Fujigen then I would expect the same control cavity routing that is on the late 1992 Fujigen OBG's and 1993 Fujigen Orvilles and the late 80s Grecos and that is not what I've seen so far.

hey guys...thank you for viewing my post. really appreciated. but i have a question... i notice that there is like an adhesive used to attached the nickel pickup covers to itself (show in one of the pictures). does it affect the tone, clarity, output of the pickups? im using a Cube20x Amp, and as I use the acoustic simulator. it doesnt sound like the way an acoustic should sound. i compared it to my friend's crappy yamaha strat style guitar. and it sounded waaayyy a lot brighter and the acoustic tone is very bright compare to my LP. is this normal? or im just used of strats. please enlighten fellow forumite... =)

cheers!!!

I don't think it's a big deal.

The pickups polepieces (the 6 small round silver things on each coil) are magnets that pick up the string vibrations and the adhesive or whatever it is would not interfere much or at all with the polepiece magnets doing their job as we are really talking about a magnetic field.

The metal pickup covers will have more effect on the polepieces magnetic field and that's why some prefer to remove the pickup covers and some prefer them on.

are these wirings for my burny the 50's style? i think it is still all original. the volume goes totally zero even the toggle switch is in the middle(both pickups working). im really curios about that bumblebee capacitors.

A friend of mine has a '78 BURNY FLG-60 wich have pickups(GOTO) and electronics on a board like Reborns,but neck seems to be from a bit different than my '79 Reborn.

Recent MIJ Burnys 3 screw TRCs(2000?s) would be Tokai made(all mid level models).

I owned a late 80?s-early 90?s Burny LP Custom in sunburst no doubt different made than two LP Customs Black Beauty I had. All of these Burnys had a tad bigger headstock,so this could be a way to differentiate Tokai guitars and Fuji-Gen and others guitars made....
