.. are these-





yep, a pair of new guitars came my way over the last 2 months. both of which came from the land of japan at some stage.

first we have the firebird.

an 80's MIJ Burny lawsuit Firebird.
the 3 pickup situation is absolutely fantastic. the toggle is a 6 way switch (like a gearbox) giving me every imaginable combination. has a thin twang on the middle settings, or a thick classic rock chunk in the others. lacking a little condition, but it is all original with only a few surface marks.









the other is a strat.

a 80's MIJ '68 Reissue Fender Stratocaster (modified by me)
i never owned a strat. now i do. i like it, lots. i still like buckers more, but its a pretty good sound anyway
non-export model pickups (apparently better) were placed on switches to give the 7 sound modes that everyone loves.
plays really smooth, looks even smoother.







i got some new amps and pedals too, check ggna.

Are the American-made Fenders better than Japanese-made? I don't know much on the japan models, just wondering.
I have no sig, and neither do I want one.

i want to kick you in your scrotum and take those.

actually japan is great for a lot of guitars/gear. great quality and usually cheap. well not since yen sky rocketed, but still.

If I had more money I would happily become a Burny collector extending my current collection of 1 Burny LP.

I think a Burny firebird would be at the somewhere at the top of my list and this is a great example. Time to pop to your profile for a listen me thinks of how she sounds.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I live in Japan, but I can never afford those guitars you have.

I need to muster up some cash to actually buy something MIJ especially since I live here.

Awesome guitars btw, and HNGD on yer Greco.

IMO Japan has better quality guitars than girls. But that's just me.
