Hi guys, new to the forum!

I bought this black custom last year and now I need at least one other Burny





I had a bone nut installed because the fretboard had to be reglued at the end and I installed a G*bson trussroad cover.

Still working on the pickups.
It had the original VH-1 but without covers, so I bought covers and installed them but then they began to squeal, so I put in GFS pups for now.

Will the VH-1s be worth it to have them fixed (waxpotted, covers installed)?

Anyone know what year it's from?

I now have my mind set on a tobacco burst standard, an FLG 70 or 80.

Thanks!

Hello,

My question exactly the same for this guitar and is it truly MIJ?

Hi guys!
I would request more images, like the back o the PU's, cavities and electronics. That makes it easier to identify.
Have you read Nils(Burny_123)'s great paper about the Burny models?
http://www.japanguitars.co.uk/burny%20info.html
It was a great resource when I bought my Burny. I am fairly new to this also but it seem like both of the guitars are later ones (after -88 ) according to the diamond inlay and the truss rod cover. Would be fun to see the PU's and the electronics
Seems like there was 2 generations of the VH1 pu's, it's all in Nils paper.
