Near mint Burny FLG-90 Super Grade from 1981.

1980-81 Burny FLG-models are fairly rare, and are IMO some of the finest MIJ guitars available. This is a '81 FLG-90 with the Super Grade script logo. The guitar has a pure nitro finish, one-piece body and original L8001 PAF's (untouched electronics). Original high-quality nickel hardware, including double-ring Fernandes tuners. The guitar has once been professionally refretted, and also has naturally aged hardware. Otherwise, this guitar is almost in mint condition. There is no belt buckle rash etc.

This one is a very resonant, long sustaining guitar. Very good note definition, and it sounds loud and clear acoustically. Original case (optionally brand new Lifton repro). Asking $1500 + shipping from Scandinavia.

Burny Super Grade FLG-90

Body: One-piece Honduran Mahogany

Neck: One-piece Honduran Mahogany with a slim 60’s profile, vivid rosewood fretboard and MOP inlays (serial number dates to 1981).

Pickups/Hardware: All original parts. Fernandes “Deluxe” double-ring tuners, ABR-1 style bridge, bone nut, two L8001 PAF humbuckers (Rated at ca. 7.5 kOhms), braided wire, Noble pots and PIO caps.

Cosmetic Condition: The top and back is in very nice condition. There is no belt buckle ash etc. Nitrocellulose lacquer. The finish have faded to a nice brown-tinted honeyburst, whereas most FLG’s are cherry. Natural aging to hardware. Previous owner(s) have cared very well for the guitar, but it is not a case queen, as witnessed by a professional refret. 1981 Super Grade script logo. The guitar has a lot of character and is structurally sound all around.

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board. Guitar is very resonant guitar.
