Beautiful guitar! Glad it finally arrived. There is allot of info on the net that states that current burny/fernadez are made in china and in korea. And that therefore the quality is not that good. I've also read that the higher grades like the rlg series are made in Japan. I've also heard that the higher grades are made in Japan even though they have three screws in the truss rod cover. The pictures of the rlg were beaufiful. I assume that this guitar is made in Japan and has a solid maple cap? If so, where can I buy one?

Hello tokaifreak!
My guitar is from the 90s, or at least so I'm told... It's a made in Japan RLG-90 w/ two screws truss rod covers, but the top is laminated, not a solid one, just like the lower grades mij Tokais, if I remember correctly.
Who cares, by the way, it looks beautiful just the same!
As for where to find one at a reasonable price, it ain't that difficult, you just have to look at Burny/Fernandes Super Grades on Ebay... If you're patient enough you may easily find a good one at 450-500 euros (=550/600 U$), which is about the price of the lower grades (LS70-75) Tokais and a little less than the Edwards equivalents... By the way, i paid 380 E. (=460 U$) for mine, plus shipping and customs.
Oh, I almost forgot, I bought mine from user japanoldguitar, great service and he's got better prices than most of the others on Burnys (he just sold another honey burst Super Grade at just above 400 E.).
Good luck!
