Hi, I'm interested in bidding on this lefty Burny Les Paul, but I want to make sure that it is what the seller claims...specifically is this a MIJ Burny and not one of the new MIK or MIC Burnys...any info from you guys would be greatly appreciated.

I would request images of the pickups and electronics, makes it easier to identify then.
If I interpet Nils great paper correct, those VH-1 pickups are the later VH-1's (1989-1996 VH1 pickup).
Have you read his paper? : http://www.japanguitars.co.uk/burny%20info.html

It?s OK to me, but late 80?s and more likely 90?s. Neck tenon is correct as VH-1 stickers over pickup rings are....I would ask for lifinting pickups to see back inscriptions,korean nor china made Burnys do not have VH-1 pickups....
