    SOLD

    Made by a builder out of Georgia. I opted for lightweight Honduran mahogany (a substantial premium), which is extremely hard to find nowadays. Guitar weighs 8 pounds flat as-is. Other specs include:

    -Dark and oil pre-ban Brazilian rosewood fretboard
    -Eastern curly maple top with plenty of mineral flecks
    -Stops hand-milled by the builder
    -Black beauty caps and CTS pots
    -Bartlett pick guard
    -Wizz PAF clone pickups
    -Rolled fretboard binding

    Guitar has been lightly/moderately aged.

    The old photos...what were those PUs?

    They looked better imho.

    Either way this guitar is awesome looking...please sell it so I can stop looking at it.

    They were Japanese boutique pickups from the brand K&T. I think the cream bobbins look great in person. The guitar will only fade more, which I think will make the pickups look even nicer.

    Awesome both ways...I like pick guards and pickup covers myself. What’s “Burst’s” reputation in the replica LP universe? Is it a slavishly accurate type of build? I’m not that aware of these types of builders...offline pm may be preferable. Been drooling over this for a while...don’t understand how it’s still here.
