    Can anyone help me get some more information on this Burny LPC?
    Natural LPC with "flame" and what I presume is a 3piece maple neck?

    Is it safe to say that Fernandes "stone logo" LPs, SGs etc were made from about 1978-82 and were built at the Tokai factory?

    Stone Logos on LPs ended about 1978 I believe. Then Tokai took up the production for a while, then Terada, then Matsumoku IIRC. Some good info here.

    Specs should be solid 2 piece lightly flamed maple top and 1 piece mahogany back, nitro finish, fret edge binding and L8001/ VH-1 pickups.

    I should have came here first...
    Also the pickup had a braid and a lead so only two wires (if that helps).

    Hoping for some advice and assistance from the Burny experts here. I just came across this 1978 single cut on CL. The pics are not high quality and my monitor is small. To me it appears to have a 1 piece top? And maybe a 2 piece back? What do you folks think? Any guesses on model? I may ask him to pull the pickups and let me see the cavities before I consider traveling to it. I also just bought a Gibson, so I need another guitar like I need a hole in the head, lol!

    Nitro finish?

    I got some more pics from him. The back of the headstock does have a serial number, which indicates a 77, although the owner is still insisting it's a 78. Does the serial number mean this is made by Tokai?

    Also some of the neck pickup cavity. Unfortunately no model number was stamped in there. But,it looks to me like it's a solid top?

    FLG-70CS. Made by Terada. 1977 is correct.

    Thanks so much! I'm in the process of reading the whole thread, but still have almost 50 pages to go and most of the photos are gone now. The guitar I posted pics of had an asking price of $700, which I thought might be high on a 77, but then the second person who wanted to see it offered him more money to come ahead of me. I told him to go ahead and take the extra money. Does anyone have an opinion on that? I was kind of disappointed it wasn't a 78. Was I wrong?

    Can anyone tell me what model this would be? My eyes say RLG-120 or RLG-150, given that it's apparently a solid top per the specifications. It's a pretty well done 3 PU conversion, in my opinion: https://www.digimart.net/cat01/shop70/DS04281779/

    There's only limited pictures, so I'm not entirely sure. Looks to be good value, but I'd probably want to switch the selector to one of those new 'H pattern'-like ones because 3 way selector on 3 humbuckers sucks, typically.

    I had a 1975 model. Sold it for $600. Kind of a dud. I have no complaints about 80s Kasuga and Dyna Burnys. Top notch guitars.

    Thanks so much for your help. I'm going to hold out for a 78 or later then. I've also been eyeballing a 92 75GR, which may or may not be a FGN built. I like the looks of it, but I'm pretty sure the VH1s in those are on the hot side, so I may not like those.

    Could be just a nice RLG-50. More proof is required for a higher end model. Cavity shots, etc.

    There is a Burny I am looking at and having trouble trying to date. First, it's been refretted so no nibs. Secondly it has had an RS wiring harness put in so no original pot codes to look at.

    The seller finally sent me a bad pic of the control cavity, and I'm going to say it is Dyna made? However, there is some question about whether this guitar is Japanese made or if it's Chinese and someone is trying to pass it off as Japanese from the 80s. So does anyone know if this is definitively Dyna or not?

    I also asked him for pictures of the control cavities and he sent me one that really shows the underside of the pickups. Do the pickups themselves give anyone a clue of what Burny this might be?

    [​IMG]

    Yes, they are really bad pics, but that is what he took.

    This is the headstock
