These seem to be old photos, but I hadn't seen them until now and thought they were very cool. Some of you may not have seen them either. This has always been one of my favorite bursts looks-wise. Just beautiful! :wow:

















...and these seem to be from the same session:









Great photos! :applause::applause::applause:

I'm not a big burst fan, they are cool but too "mainstream", too prone to fanboys for me.

But that is perfect. :shock: absolutely perfect.

I remember when Emerald had the guitar for sell. I contacted them for a possible purchase. Really nice one with some issues. Big Mojo !!
I think the guitar is in Japan now.

I like it. Why is every Burst in Japan these times? Or in a certain vault in the US.

This and "Fanny" 9-1880 are probably my two favorite Bursts. :applause:

In the '90s, when Japan was in an economic boom, and the Yen was very strong, the Japanese bought Bursts by the container full, and drove the prices way up.

Nice. Seems to have quite a hefty neck profile to it for a '60 too.

But they don't know what to do with them like we do!!! Why in hell would you lock something like that away just to look at....

Now me, I'd have it on the pillow next to me......

Thanx for posting!

That divot on the neck is big. I wonder what the story is? I should say a good section of the neck...actually.

just played real hard....

Great looking burst
