About the Burns Guitar...what do you think...I really like it. If youve had the pleasure to play it you would understand. The sound is incredible and its so beautiful. I have played the classic red version and gold edition (in which 40 were ever made HA HA HA) both never touched by another person. And a green floor model. All are good and when you plug in to a vox and turn up the gain and click the delays you feel like Mr.May himself. Its very good

I love it as well. I have a red one, and I love it dearly. It sounds great through the Vox Brian May Special Amp, since it has the treble booster built in. Now all I need is an AC30.

The first time I played that guitar was at Steve's Music in Toronto. I was literally shaking for the first fifteen minutes, because it was the closest I could ever come to playing Brian's guitar. It was such an amazing feeling to have that same feel and that same tone.

I remember when I first played mine in the music shop back in Jan 02 (I think, when did it come out?!) and the bloke turned the amp right up and it sounded just like Brian... I was completely blew away by it, amazing guitar...
