    I think I' pretty good at telling the difference between vintage 58 to 60 Bursts and Historics from R8 to R0 !! So heres the mission if you decide to accept it .. Post a picture of either a Burst or a Historic and I will tell you what it is ! Please make the picture at least about 4 inches square and of somewhat decent quality !


    Can you Stump Bobbo ??

    Way too easy .. Most definately a Historic Maybe a custom build but not a vintage LP !! A decent relic job but a Historic none the less ! C'mon Flick you can do better than that !! Has Historic hardware like volume pointers ,pup covers,

    Someone has memorized BOTB page for page !! Someone has read most everything he can get his hands on about vintage Bursts !! Someone has sat and stared at the differences in color between the pickup rings and the pickguard for hours ! ETC .. No shenanigans here !
