Hi. New here & just got myself a Burny Les Paul wannabe. It's lovely, beautiful sound and a beautiful top. Very close to mint cond'.

The shop that sold me the axe thought it was from late 70's/early 80's, but some other people over at the MyLesPaul forum think's it's newer.

Anyone around here who can give me a best guess on when this beauty was born? Serial no in neck cavity is: 20811.

TIA

A few pic's:

Hi Peter,

Looks very nice. Some detail pic's of the cavities etc might help.

There is some very good info here which will give you clues about where to look and how to tell.

The top is very nice is it laminate or solid?

Hi Dave.

Thx for your answer. Nice MIJ site you found. From what I can see there my Burny might well be from late 70's or early 80's.

Laminate or solid? What do you think?

Hi Peter,

It's difficult to tell for sure if it's solid. If you line up the joint on the top you should be able to follow it down through the pick up cavity. You may have to scrape a little bit of varnish away from inside the pickup cavity to see the join and grain of the maple top.

Burny started put serial numbers in the pup cavities in the 90s with the first number being the year so yours should be 92 but the TRC is incorrect for that time so it may have been changed

Hi Juan.

I know a shop in Stockholm Sweden that's got two right now.

Look here: http://www.nysse.com/lager.html Scroll down the page and look for: "Japanska Elgitarrer"

Good luck!

Be careful! All Burnys there are Made in China and not MIJ.
