Yeah, I know, it isn't the REAL THING, but sound quality and warmness is pretty close! Anyone interested? ;)

Check here for more pics (the first one is... well... you'll see it by yourselves! :p)

Thanks,

Brian even offered the real Red Special to anyone that wanted it. When he was testing the Burns Red Special and his he said 'Oh, may as well throw the old one away, anyone want it'

I think someone should claim it.

Ironic him saying that as they've now announced that they (Brian) is breaking their association with Burns. They're going to take over the trade mark themselves. He said it's amicable, and it may be, but there must be a reason for taking it over, and it sounds like they want to improve it. Interesting. I was thinking about buying a Burns BHM, but I think I'll wait!!!

They're breaking the Burns deal? Awww... So what's the news about a new and improved model, then? Hopefully for a similar price range as the Burns 'cause, at least I didn't have to dream about owning one! I had the cash at least twice, but had to buy other much needed things instead.

Peace,
Adam.

Get a Burns - I honestly can't see them beating it for quality at almost any price.

They apparently made a honey one with gold hardware at £599 - that's the one I want.
