Burny LP John Sykes
This is a rare find for sure. I believe it's been rumored to be a chinese made guitar.
However, the quality seems to be amazing and I don't know how or why!

Specs:

NECK : Mahogany, 628mm-Scale, Set-Neck
FINGERBOARD : Rosewood, 22F., 400R
BODY : Maple 15mm + Mahogany 45mm
PICKUP : Burny style pickups
CONTROL : 2Volume, 2Tone, 3Way Toggle-SW.
BRIDGE : Tune O Matic & Stop Tailpiece



UTILIZATION

Shape-wise it's pretty much like any other LP custom would be, big, thick and moderately heavy. Though this particular piece wasn't SUPER heavy, though it does weigh at something around 9lbs that last time I checked.

The neck is comfortable, by comfortable i mean thicker than most but still slim. It's got that 60's taper slim profile vibe about it.

Again, upper fret access is a burden just like it usually is with LP shapes, there's nothing surprising about this. Of course if you have monster hands you could do it with ease, otherwise you definitely have to re-angle your positioning to get around the big set neck.


SOUNDS

surprisingly, for the time that I owned this guitar I never changed the pickups. It seemed that I never needed to. I almost always do it with certain guitars that have unfamiliar pickups. But once I plugged this one in, everything sounded good!!

The bridge pickup was my favorite, not for cleans, but for dirt it was quite thick, raunchy! A little bit raspy-like with some edge too, but not too much.

Though harmonics didn't leap out either, the crunch was still good.

The neck pickup as I remember was quite smooth, maybe a bit too muddy and the cleans were decent but nothing to really write home about.



OVERALL OPINION

Overall a pretty decent guitar especially for it's age, I believe it's an 80s model I don't know when exactly but the frets were still good and the neck was good too. It seems to have been a well made guitar, I wouldn't say it's perfect I did notice some finish flaws with the binding on the headstock and some at the 12th fret inlay. But even some Gibsons have such flaws even after paying hundreds of dollars more!

I'd say it's quite decent and worth looking into if you like the sykes look with the all chrome hardware. LPs should all be around this price range in my opinion.
