1 sascha 3 months ago Hey good people.Just wanted to share a nice guitar that fell into my hands. It's a late '80s Burny (Tokai) Rock'n Roll Version. Obviously a copy of a Gibson Les Junior (DC version introduced in 1958). The pictured guitar has a wonderful fat late 50s neck, set-neck, good pickup is overall a great instrument. Since it was covered in loads of DNA by the former owners I kinda had to bring it back to life but was surprised how smooth it went. Had my luthier working on the fret ends since the wood dried over the years. Then I added an interesting Faber wraparound bridge with blades out of different materials (plain strings brass, wound strings titanium) and it suits her well. The black pickguard looked nice but then learned about Ivison Guitars (Thanks, Tubs! You mentioned him somewhere recently.) and besides the fact that he builds marvellous guitars he offers handmade pickguards from NOS celluloid. I had to have one. So on it went.Now the guitar is all you'd expect from this model. Straight into your face, twangy yet punchy with loads of sustain. Since I have a "one in - one out" rule I have to think if to forward this or something else. I'd miss her for sure.Here's a few pics for you:EDIT: 'Burny' is actually a 'Fernandes' guitars brand name, not Tokai.
