Burny/Fernandes Update..

September 13, 2007

I just came across the pricelist for the Burny/Fernandes guitars I posted below, while I was doing a search for the bt-120mm. Needless to say I can’t afford that right now. 2099 list equals roughly 1100-1200 retail here at about a 40% discount, but I don’t know if they even offer discount off list on those, plus with the shipping to get it here it will still probably be around 1500 or so. Maybe xmas. But here are the prices:

Cool Ass Guitars….part 2. Burny/Fernandes Japan.

June 26, 2007

Man, I don’t know how hard it is to get these, because they don’t offer them here, only in Japan I guess, but I want that red 120MM. Fernandes/Burny make some cool ass guitars. Not for the traditionalist. Check out part of their lineup this year. These are part of their Musician line.

Buck Tick is a band with 2 guitarists that they must endorse, as they’re offering up a 20th anniversary mini set of their guitars too. They’re so cute, like the mini Fenders offered here in the states.

And…………RAVELLE’S

Let’s not forget all the bitchin’ cool Ravelle’s that they get there and we don’t get here. I’m not gonna post all the specs cuz’ there’s so many models of Ravelle, just the pix, but HERE’S a link if you wanna see them all.

Deluxe PS (Pinstripe)

Elite: It’s funny because they offer an Elite and an Elite Flame Top, where here our Elite comes with a flame top. Weird huh?

Dave Kushner model: They offer theirs as “The Japan Premium” Dave Kushner model, and specs list it as having a maple top, where here, I’m not sure but I didn’t think they came with a 15mm maple top here. Info out there is confusing to me as to exactly what’s going on or not on top of the mahogany body on our version here in the states, but here’s how they list their specs for theirs:

  • NECK : Mahogany, 628mm-Scale, Set-Neck
  • FINGER BOARD : Rosewood, 22F., 250R
  • BODY : Maple 15mm + Mahogany 45mm
  • PICK UP : HPD-300, Seymour Duncan SH-11
  • CONTROL : 1 Volume, 1 Tone, 3-Way Toggle-SW.,
  •       Sustainer Controls
  • BRIDGE : GOTOH GE103B-T & GE101A-T
  • FEATURES : GROVER 102B Machine Head,
  •       2.9mm width Jumbo Fret,
  •       Schaller Security Lock BL

Oh, what the hell, here’s a pic..

RAVELLE JPC (JAPAN PREMIUM CUSTOM)

jpc2 And their top of the line model, offered in 4 finishes. Look at these specs.

  • NECK : Mahogany, 628mm-Scale, Set-Neck
  • FINGERBOARD : Ebony, 22F., 350R
  • BODY : Flame Maple 15mm + Honduras Mahogany 45mm
  • PICKUP : CD-100F, Wolfetone Grey Wolf
  • CONTROL :1 Volume, 1 Tone, 3-Way Toggle-SW.,
  •      Sustainer Controls
  • BRIDGE : GOTOH GE103B-T & GE101A-T
  • FEATURES : CTS pot, Switchcraft parts, Vitamin-Q oil capacitor

NICE!!!!

 

 

FR SERIES

FR-155S

FR155S

  • NECK : Maple, 648mm-Scale, Bolt-On
  • FINGER BOARD : Ebony, 22F.,350R
  • BODY : Curly Maple 15mm + Honduras Mahogany 30mm
  • PICK UP : F.G.I.-S-FS×2,FHM-3210W
  • CONTROL : 1Volume,1Tone (Coil Tap-SW.), 5Way Lever-SW., Sustainer Controls
  • BRIDGE : Schaller SFRT-2 (with Pitch-Shift Cavity)
  • FERNANDES SUSTAINER® 搭載 (LED付)

BACK BACK2

To round it out they also have the FR and the APG series which are ok. This FR-155S is the top of the line model in the FR series. They have lots more on their site if you wanna see them all. I wouldn’t mind grabbing a few of these if I had the money. I’m sure you could get them if you tried, but I’d imagine with shipping that it would be a bunch extra, but you’d be the only one with it that’s for sure. Let me know if you dig these as much as I do. See ya.

Cool Ass Guitars…

May 12, 2007

This is going to be a new feature here, where I post pictures of cool guitars I find online or in my forums.

Let’s start it off with this Vinnie Vincent Vee Jackson, found at Harmony Central’s forums, posted by AzCat. Enjoy!!

Vinnie Vincent Jackson V

Great, although not for me. I would never be caught dead playing a Vee, but I think they’re cool and enjoy seeing others play them. There are very few Vees that I think are cool, for example, some older Gibson Vees and some of the crazier Jackson Vees, especially the Roswell one, also posted by AzCat.

Roswell VeeBoy does this guy have some Cool Ass Guitars.
