Ultra clean Burns Brian May Signature from early 2000s. (This is a real Burns, not to be confused with a cheaper Brian May guitar or a rare Guild - or the hign end Brian May custom series. They are all good, but have different price points related to the build quality).  Burns build quality was superb at this time. Immaculate condition. Great electronics provide TONS of tonal options. Obviously instant Queen tone, but lots of other applications. Chunky Les Paul style neck with a 24" scale, great frets...really easy to play. Grover tuners.

Original Burns hards shell case (grey) in great condition. Well maintained...set up with low action .010 (.009s feel reeeeallly slinky on this scale). No sixpence included, but it will get you most of the way there!

This is a great place to sell and buy gear; there are a lot of really nice and cool people out there! Not everyone has the same expectations or wants, however. I am open to offers, but this isn't a garage sale, so I will respectfully decline unreasonable offers and hope that those bidders find what they are looking for on Reverb. Likewise, if I make a counter-offer, that is final, firm price. Any subsequent counteroffer will be declined. Life is too short for haggling!

IMPORTANT – If you didn’t read above, the description is important! Read it closely, please!!! This is a used item. I have tried to describe it in detail, but remember that it may not be set-up the way you like, parts wear out and sometimes break when you least expect it. Pots can be scratchy, solder points break, capacitors expire, and necks certainly adjust to the weather – No seller can guarantee that a used item will be free of all of these issues every time.

What I can guarantee is that all of my equipment for sale has been used by me and meticulously maintained throughout my possession. If I can’t use it, I don’t sell it. Every guitar, pedal, etc. is played and checked before I ship it. If I find an issue after a sale is made, I will advise the buyer. If need be, I will cancel the sale and issue a refund before shipping.

What I can’t fix…Buyer’s Remorse…if you were feeling impulsive and decided to buy that guitar at 2 a.m. and then feel that regret when it shows up on your credit card statement and your interest has changed, something even shinier has come up for sale, or you have an unexpected bill for something totally not fun like an auto repair bill- THE SALE IS STILL FINAL.  I have bought lots of gear that didn’t work out, and some that I shouldn’t have spent the money on, but I just turn around and sell it, like everyone else in the same spot. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS – PLEASE ASK BEFORE BUYING; I WILL BE HAPPY TO RESPOND.

I am a little choosy about my customers – which may sound crazy, but I want you to be happy!

·         I will not communicate outside of Reverb or honor any request to set up a “side deal”.

·         I don’t meet up with people so that they can kick the tires or play games (like bringing less money than agreed upon) – this is not Craigslist. I don’t do local pickup.

·         If an item is not listed as open to offers, it means that I have established my firm price (haggle free!) and you don’t need to message me with offers…or a supreme court argument about why my price is much too high or how you want to help me out of a jam by “mercifully” offering me pennies on the dollar. You will find what you are looking for, but I may not be the seller who has it. That’s OK- Reverb is fun, right????

We could be watching golf, but we are on here and u-tube all night jonesing on gear.  I have learned a lot from people telling gear stories or tech tips – always welcome. Thanks so much for looking at my store!
