Les Paul copy 59
Mine is dated 1991, the truss rod cover has two small wings, supports microphones have a sticker but noted VH1 microphones mounted at this time are not.
The table is a slightly flamed veneer on a non-negligible thickness maple. The body is mahogany (a real one!), 2 pieces, assembly and choice of wood so well that it is very difficult to distinguish the two parties.
The mahogany neck is one piece, the key is in a beautiful rosewood.
The sunburst is very successful, the varnish is not nitrocellulose.
In summary, this model is not the most sought after by collectors of lutherie in the country of the rising sun, and yet ...
The weight is that of a les paul in his side's reasonable term.
The handle is very nice and round me coming out over a year Telecaster, I have not had trouble getting it to and I really find some good sensations Les Paul I possessed a few years ago.
Ergonomics? ben is that a les paul neither more nor less.
The fittings are of very good quality, conforming to the model copied and electronics reveals no particular problem.
I practiced the guitar for 15 days without being able to connect and then hear what gave the microphones.
What I learned in 30 years of practice instrument is an electric guitar that does not sound vacuum will not rattapé with very good pickups.
Back home, I plugged in my beautiful Fender different.
It's out the les paul! I cons by a huge imbalance between the volume of two microphones that I'm correct stain if possible, otherwise I would put two of PAFs in MS Tornado and the matter will be resolved.
I am delighted with this purchase even if I reinvest in a pair of microphone, a guitar is really well made, although the upper Tokai recent production I paid 1000 euros two years ago.
I would do this choice rather 2 That a time.

Burny Les Paul Standard 1980's
Mahogany body part one
microphones VH-1 original
bridge, as in mechanical models gibson.
A great guitar, very heavy 4.2kg, in very good condition even after 25 years. Bought on ebay.
The handle is more enjoyable, no problem adjusting.
Access to acute: a case from the 18th, it becomes a bit of gymnastics but what you really need? Me ... it suits me plenty.
In terms of ergonomics, it is used to sy course, it changes the strats and other guitars light, it lead in the body and it tends to raise the handle, but one week the problem is I surpassé.Moi do not think it is so heavy that it once on the back, even after hours of rehearsals qq we do not collapse.
If you get a sound easy beh ... you turn the amp, you plug the guitar, and that's it you have the proper son.et over the amp is good, c is better.
The sound is excellent, thanks to VH-1 pickups that are really good Demende extraordinaires.faites attention to sellers if they are many VH-1, the majority of Burny ds made in the 80's are equipped with the most Burny recent other microphones, can be less interesting.
I play with a laney LC15R all lamps, low volume you can get great clean sounds with a nice reverb at the beginning we said that we are very strong, that it has great sound, but in fact it is understandable that after c is not us, c is the guitar! A large volume, the sound is very fat with return of more sustain is huge.
I used the last three months, I adore the sound, I love to see it placed on its tripod, c is an object beautiful, very well done. I could compare it to a beautiful black beauty gibson custom, and she very much supported the comparison.
Bought € 700 all inclusive in Japan via ebay, the case is more than good, much more interesting than Epiphone, largely at the level of gibson of today but just € 1,300 cheaper.
I would do the same good choice sur.c d is the time to buy a Greek or other Burny, Orville, before too many people have found the vein.

jugejackson's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Made in Japan in 1983-1985
Characteristics identical to the G. .... but rather thin polyurethane varnish and body in two parts.
Channel 60's type and micro VH4 (which sound like L8000 Gotoh end 70's early 80's).
The binding dates back to the edge of the frets for playing comfort
It is a model RLG60, entry level at the time but which is widely sold guitars at € 800-900 today.
Channel type Les Paul with all the faults of the original.
Its level is really a nice guitar that sounds really good, there are sound "Les Paul".
To play jazz, the neck pickup is excellent, smooth as desired.
To play rock, hard rock, it sounds really good. There is this little crunch when you attack the strongest in the game
€ 480 bought in Japan via Ebay, in a very good, in my opinion is a very good deal compared to much more expensive than LP I have tried and did not sound better or worse.
To put in terms of sound, it is in a studio and a std.
I have two other models Burny, but I would like to purchase a Custom RLG90 that the nitro-lacquer cellullosique VH1 and microphones (first time).
For skeptics who swear by Gibson, the latter had trials and most firms did not sell their models outside Japan, but with internet and ebay, these guitars can be found in a tablet in Europe now.
cherry sunburst finish, flamed Maple top, but not wavy like in the photo, the exact form, including head of the Paul, beautiful baby weighing 4 kg, the typical round Paul is what makes the reputation of Burny, sensation is excellent, hooping really comfortable, very fair, true happiness. When empty it sounds very balanced and powerful. Vintage mechanical lubrication, with a nice look but they take very well the tide and bendings of a tone and a half. The woods are tight, it breathes authenticity. pickgard one is present, short, with the logo and the perfect form, before the mirror, it seems to be true!
It's like a Les Paul Standard. The mine was equipped with Seymour Duncan SH2 (too skinny) / SH1 and I changed to a classic 57 round microphone before changing again soon for a configuration very handmade craft etc. ...
The sound is balanced and very powerful. It's amazing and it's also why I'm going down the wing in terms of choice of microphones. The guitar responds well in terms of dynamics, the 3 positions are classic, the bridge pickup position is better, it sweeps everything with a great punch and sustain full of warmth, not to have his way on that quelqu'ampli whatsoever. It's fantastic. The neck position is very punchy and smooth whatever the mic, but I think it lacks definition, it's hard to find the right formula, with the gibson is a bit too soft and it lacks finesse, with the SH2 was too mild satisfaction. The sound rumbles and bass are very active, making a big contrast with the neck position.
That said, I'm so addicted and accustomed to the sounds hyper defined and precise strata as the sound of an LP less well-defined nature becomes intriguing to me.
This guitar is cut out for rock and blues spot. It vibrates to the touch, it is played with great comfort despite its weight.
Rarely (I should say never) crystal, she prefers saturated or very crunchy. Electronics is handy because the knobs are very efficient and clean.
It's like a LP standard, it does not do everything with.
Bought 420 euros on ebay 2 years ago, I'm sure I got a bargain because this guitar is xxx times better than any gibson epiphone and certainly some of the 80 not always tip top! It is seen in the choice of wood and comfort, handling, quality sound.
Beware, there are Burny from all eras, some are much better than mine still listed even though it has some wonderful qualities manufacturing (long neck tenon, wood, etc. ...), others are made in Korea (approximately from 91) and that's all, the quality was often better before ...
I would love to find the original pickups, the famous VH1, I think they are certainly better suited. If someone has a track ...
Really a great guitar for those who no longer support epiphone damn evil and watching the Gibson in the windows and totally overpriced.
I finally opted for zebra Seymour Duncan SH1 '59 classic and with these pickups it sounds best. The clean sound is now very beautiful, very warm and crunches or loadings are beautiful grain of the time Mick Taylor, Clapton Episode I or Michael Bloomfield. A guitar worthy of the old system these pickups to the old, with a mounting knobs (new since they spitting a bit) also type 50's with capacitors sprague, when you love ...
