Bolt on neck "Royce" les Paul copy. I had it for many years and it started out as pure junk for $20 in 1978. It got upgraded with whatever parts I could get my hands on for many years. I gave it away about 5 years ago and the guy swears it's the best guitar he ever played. All I can say to him is I'm glad you like it, at least I finally got it to stay in tune and all the electronics to work properly after fiddling with it for 30 years...we share a lot of success stories..
any you've picked up and not cared for?
specifics would be cool....this isn't just a slam a brand thread (unless consistently you haven't cared for a certain company's instruments and had the misfortune of getting a few)...but MIJ LP style guitars that just didn't work for you and for what reasons.
pics would be cool if you still have any/
I always try and learn from the successes and failure so to speak.
I really haven't had what I'd call a real dog come through...the Edwards are solid but seem to lack some of the character I look for in a guitar...of my two I'd say the 98LTS although technically a near perfectly built new LP style guitar (the guitar was basically new when I got it also)...I feel like it needs 5 years of club gigs and beer and smoke to cover it before it's got some sort of depth.
it's the main reason I've been looking for older, and generally used gear now.
I'm curious. Seems to be that Burny are not on pair with others as I thought. Could you guys tell why? Look,s weight? How do you compare them (84 back burny's) strictly in sound?
So does it has a body binding with the black pin stripe being the painted on part you are referring to ? ... or no body binding whatsoever ? .the 'painted' on binding lets it down
