Hope it's affordable. Near Burns price. But I guess it'll be at least £2-300 more. *Sigh*

Peace,
Adam.

Well if the alternative to Burns is indeed Andrew Guyton, then the price is gonna be mad - there's a post by Andy himself on the web site saying the price is just under £7000!!! Maybe that's the premier style and the new ones will be a lot less (like less than £1000!)

Yeah, bugger that! I'll just get a burns. I guess the new one is for die-hard only folk.

Peace,
Adam.

Die hard??? Or just people that can afford them!! I class myself as a diehard Queen fan, but I certainly cannot afford one of those!

The Burns is a great guitar! Maybe the perfectionists turn their noses down on it but it gets the sound and offers a load more too! Great buy!

I heard they were stopping production of them though - is that true?

Damn, I think you're right, DJ. Well, I'll just have to hunt one down. Like I've said before, I liked the idea that I could actually own one because it wouldn't break the bank. Most can get together £450 if they try. £1000 is a steeper hill.

Peace,
Adam.

Don't get me wrong, if this is a major improvement over the Burns, I'll consider it, but I somehow doubt it will be that much better.

That's not a £1000 guitar, that's a £3000 guitar.
