Brian May Signature BMG Black Ebony Electric Guitar Original Burns Model! m4313
This is a Brian May Signature guitar in black finish. This is one of the original Burns Brian May guitars, made 2001-2004 in Korea. Most you see now are the newer re-issue and do not say Burns on the headstock or the bridge.
This has the Tri-Sonic pickups and locking Grover tuners, and of course May's signature switching matrix. All electronics work and sound great on this. Has a wide neck with an ebony fretboard, and the guitar is very resonant. It has playing wear and I'd rate it a 7/10 overall. I've taken some pics of various small marks. Note, the crack in the finish near neck joint is not deep or in the wood. No case or tremolo bar. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.
What You Get
-- Full setup, cleaning, and new strings.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.
All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
A rockin' machine true to Brian May's specs!
