Burny RSA-345 Custom Order - 1995
Extremely rare Custom Order Burny RSA-345, which went to great lengths to be a very close copy of a 1959 ES-345 including Varitone. Absolutely stunning guitar that was offered on a Custom Order basis by one of the larger Japanese music stores. Early style long pick guard 335 Japanese guitars are quite rare, as are 345 copies, making this Burny especially rare.
Materials used on this guitar are excellent, including a gorgeous one piece mahogany neck that has no wings on the headstock and beautiful fully flamed maple body finished in pure Nitro Lacquer. Pickups are VH-1. This guitar appears to be all original and in excellent overall condition.
Only a few examples of Burny 345's are known, with some being made in the late 1980's. I do have a red 1989 RSA-345 as well, which I will also post pictures of as time permits.
This is the only known RSA-345 in blonde.
