From L-R:

Dude, that's not pirateflynn's. His is a '79.

The one in that pic is the Black Bastard.

How soon they forget...

Here are some more pics: Dont's ask me ... dunno what the rose is about ... it was there when I got it ... and the case seems to be original to the guitar. Cheers, Todde

Well, new guitar day today again ... 82 Sunburst B&C all original down to the frets. Killer sound and slightly bigger neck than my 78. What do you think ? Cheers, Todde

'79 Sunburst

0 17-something or other...purchased new in the early 80's. I've still got it, but haven't played it in a loooong time. I'll get it out for the next 4-3-2-1 jam.

I didn't forget anything-I thought that PF HAD the black bastard. Didn't know he had a '79 also.

(Flynn wrote "My former '79 Blackie" above it).

8 0213 is somewhere in the great state of Nevada with some Kilroy fellow.

1985 Electraglide:

Oh my God. The perfect Hamer.

I got that one seventeen years after I first saw it when it arrived new at the dealer and was told when I asked the owner how much it was, "sorry, it's spoken for". THAT's perseverence.

Edited to add-it even has the RIGHT headstock!!

Hi everyone! I haven't been on the board in a while but I LOVE it when I come back and find a new Sunburst appreciation thread.

Here's my $0.02 :

1978 8-0131

sun_0006.jpg

sun_0012.jpg

All original, early shimmed bridge, long/thin headstock w/ Grover Bullseyes, fairly chunky neck profile.

It's been a favorite of mine for a long time.

This is my '79. It would be wrong to call it a "player". More like "PLAYED". It's been mine since I bought it new in 1979. Always the go-to guitar, sets me on the right path. It's thrashed and trashed, there's places on the neck where I've worn the paint right off. Amazingly, never been broken! Now I wonder where that '78 Sunburst is that I traded into GC in the early 1990s?
