That's a cool looking guitar. I was debating between black and red. I eventually went with red, as it just looked much more appropriate for playing Queen songs :) But must of the time I'm not even playing Queen songs, so perhaps I should have gone with black!

I would love to have one of those myself....I remember seeing somehting about there being a left-handed version, at that.....hmm...I wonder how converting a righty model of that to lefty would work.....probably no better or worse than what I did to a right handed Strat I got my hands on a long time ago.....I guess I'd just have to hope all those pickup switches wouldnt be in the way too much...

There is a left-handed version.

Musicfriend.com & Samedaymusic.com both sell leftys for $850.00 US dollars or so. I have seen leftys on ebay for about $700.00. Farlander, how happy are you w/ your Burns? Other than being a Queen/May fan. How versital is it really? Does the tremlo interfere w/ the six pick-up switches? I have been reading alot about the guitar & that seems to be the only really major complaint. How is the balance? I also hear it's neck heavy. What are you playing it through? I have the Vox AD30VT & am expecting a Vox "Deacky" amp in the mail any day now. Any favorite settings? Have you modified the guitar at all?

Oops, sorry I didn't see this sooner.

I'm really happy with it. I've never had trouble with the tremelo interfering with the pick-up switches.

For the Brian May sound, I'm playing it through a Vox Deacy and a Vox Valvetronix AD-60 amp. I plug the guitar into the Deacy, turn the gain all the way up, and take the booster output from that into the Valvetronix. I use the AC-30 amp on that, with the treble booster up all the way. Very nice Brian sound.
