Hi there, is anyone able to help me identifying this Burny guitar. I've looked at a lot of info on the internet and don't seem to be able to see anything similar. There is no serial number that I can find. It is sparkly gold. Any help would be appreciated, thanks. Click on to the dropbox link for the photos. ... d4Hxa?dl=0

I think that's a Burny only by (poorly scripted) name.

No problem, Burny did a few weird ones in the late 80's, I've spent far too much time on Yahoo Japan buying guitars so seen a lot of their weird and wonderful guitars :)

For the OP the model number, or/and serial, is usually stamped at the bottom of the neck or in the neck route with many Japanese bolt on guitars , you'd have to take off the neck to see it.

My last purchase was this wonderful Fujigen PP430 couldn't resist it at 7,000 yen even though someone had messed around with it.

Thanks LPjunior . Great work. It's definitely the LS-65. I checked the pickups and they are FHM-3210. Do you know where these were made? Thanks again :)
