This guitar, for all intents and purposes, is a Les Paul. I don't mean it's like a Les Paul, I mean it IS a Les Paul. Obviously, it is not made by Gibson, and Gibson is the originator and true owner of the Les Paul name. But really, this guitar is so identical to a good Les Paul Custom, that the only discernible difference is in the brand name on the headstock. It plays like a Les Paul, smooth and buttery. Unfortunately it is as heavy as a Les Paul as well - in the 9 pound area! But, again, this is a functionally identical guitar, so expect all aspects to be as spot-on as possible.


This guitar sounds just like a good Les Paul. The neck pickup can sing with a beautiful warm bloom, and the bridge pickup has a great bite to it. The sustain on this Burny is just as good as on a Les Paul. Genre-wise, this guitar is great for jazz, classic rock, metal, country, and about anything else one can think of.


This is a fantastic instrument. Some people would be angry about its design and looks, stating that it is a copyright infringement. I'm not here to argue, so with the validity or not of arguments such as these aside, this guitar, to me, is a fantastically built instrument, and it has every bit the quality that a good old Les Paul Custom has. 9 out of 10 overall.
