Like the original SG, it has 22 frets, a mahogany set neck with Indian Rosewood fretboard and Mahogany body, trapezoid MOP fret inlays and MOP headstock logo. The hardware is nickel-plated, it has 2 tone and 2 volume pots, 3-way switch, and the same neck profile as the Gibson '61, slightly slimmer than the SG Standard, but still rounded. The famous VH1 and VH2 passive pick-ups were introduced around this time and was available as an option on this model.
It absolutely smokes the two late 70's Gibson LP Customs. It is currently loaded with a Seymour Duncan 'Custom' pickup in the bridge, and a '59 in the neck position.
For someone looking for a Les Paul style guitar on a budget, the Burny would make the perfect alternative to the Epiphone for those wanting a little more individuality.
The set-neck is mahogany with a rosewood fingerboard. 22 frets and mother of pearl inlays. The body has a gorgeous quilted trans black finish on hard maple and mahogany top. The Tune-O-Matic and stop tailpiece bridge style suits the guitar and the VH-1 pickups give it an awesome sound.
The fact that the Burny is lighter than that of a regular Gibson Les Paul makes it a perfect low-budget guitar for teaching or rehearsals, especially when travelling via motorcycle.
This Fernandez-built SG copy is a very accurate replica of a 1969 spec Gibson SG, with stunning attention to detail - the shallow neck angle, the large heel, the rounded covers on the pickups etc.
