FOR SALE: 1985 Burny ES-335 (RSA100)

Up for sale is an absolutely amazing example of a 335. I've had this up for trade but I've decided to place it up for sale after lots of interest and to do something that EVERYBODY here can understand, to pay off a DANOCASTER.

I bought it after I sold a MAGICAL 1989 Gibson dot RI 335 and couldn't afford to buy another Gibson. The Burny felt and sounded just as good as the Gibson that I was replacing and it had BETTER overall craftsmanship. (Here's a thread I started on the experience with some other people's thoughts on the guitar as well I'm a poor man, Check out my Burny es-335! - The Gear Page)

This guitar was built in coveted Japan plant, before Burny started outsourcing to China or Korea. And boy oh boy did Burny nail this clone. The neck shape is identical to the "slim 60" profile you find on gibsons. The action is wonderful and it plays great. The pickups are stock VH-1 PAF clones that sound open, articulate, and woody. It has a gorgeous burst and some subtle signs of aging. There was some headstock damage before I owned it. Its typical of what you see on gibsons all the time. The headstock seems to have been whacked, cracked, and then repaired. The damage was minor, the fretboard was unscathed. The repair job is phenominal and as shown in the pictures, you can barely see it. It's VERY sound, not even noticeable really. This guitar rocks, and makes me smile every time I play it, its just time for a tele.

I value this guitar at around $1000, but my price is $875 shipped and paypalled.
