Not sure what these are because I haven't taken the PG off yet, but they sound hot and a little nasal like cermic pickups sound, but they have the staggered poles like a regular wound pickup. Thanks for the help!

The pickups Burny and Fernandes made for their Fender and Gibson clones are highly-regarded as some of the best vintage replica pickups.
Fernandes used L, L Vintage II, and L single coil pickups in their Fender-style guitars, while the Burny models were fitted with the now famous VH-1 pickups that have extraordinary tone.

Dating a Burny or Fernandes can be loosely done by looking at the truss rod cover. Prices even in Japan are triple what they were 5 years ago due to collector interest not only from abroad, but also from within Japan. I also saw a handful of Burny Les Paul style guitars with "Made in Korea" stickers, which leads me to believe that at one point in the early s, Fernandes tried to set up shop in South Korea.
In any case, and in my opinion, there is really no comparison between the Japanese and Chinese or Korean models - the Japanese just have higher standards of work and materials while the same standards are not always upheld elsewhere, even under Japanese direction. That's why Burnys are still made in Japan and in China The Korean models I saw were built using wood that was not properly dried and these guitars can warp over time.

Regular Burny pups- not the VH1's. Nice guitars but the necks were a little too wonky for me.
Burny Fernandes never stopped making guitars. You can buy a brand new one in Japan but they are MIC. Not bad though. My advise?
Burny Les Paul
You'll get an answer really fast. I was always told the no serial number guitars were 90's. But who knows? Aug 6, 4. Burny are still making guitars in Japan. Allegedly the quality isn't on par with the older models or even other Japanese brands like Tokai. Electronics and pickups can help to identify certain eras as well. Mid 80s models had brass baseplates and grey hookup wire for the pickups with either green or yellow ceramic caps.
I've been told that Burny didn't use serial numbers during the mid 80s to early 90s. Serial numbers were stamped on headstocks prior to the '82 or '83 and again during the mid 90s.

Trying to date this Fernandes "The Function"
Messages: Priced pretty cheap as it had a couple finish cracks on the neck, Was wondering if anyone had some insight on it. Here are some pics.
Jul 17, The odd plate could have been lost and found, some guitars have plates taken from other guitars etc., but in general they're pretty straight. And yes, some think they changed the headstock on ALL their guitars, while the truth is that they had several headstocks AND decals running in parallell.
They "assured" me that the vintage team looked at pictures of it and said it was a vintage 80's model made in japan, doesn't look it to me and from the info I gathered the FG serial numbers are all made in China. Anyone care to shed some light on this? Last edited: Jan 22, Jan 22, 8.
