Once again I excuse for my harsh words.
If you actually want to live in a past centuries ...
Hmmm, i never though 'bout this, but if this century is a century where you are not allowed to say open what you think and show what you feel, then this might be not my century. Political 'correctness' is a rather sick invention, imho.
.... then maybe you should consider going back in time....................
If you lend me your time machine, i think about that
To go back to the topic:
it was said several times, but some made here a storm in a teacup, so maybe it should be said again:
do not ruin your Burny.
Accept it like it is or sell it so someone who likes it as is. If the only problem is that you can't play it long hours, buy a second, lighter guitar and change guitars when the Burny gets too heavy.
And buy a good, broad bolstered leather belt. That reduces the felt weight a lot.
