Up for sale, a 1990's Burny H-85 Vertigo Elite electric guitar in 100% original condition and in perfect working order. First introduced to the Japanese market in 1992, the Vertigo is a unique proprietary design by Fernandes/Burny featuring an offset alder body, one-piece maple neck, slab rosewood fretboard, pair of stock searing Gotoh FHM-3210 humbuckers, and a Floyd Rose licensed tremolo system. The powerful pickups offer a versatile palette of tones, with a beefy, bold neck position and a cutting, focused, mid-forward bridge. The pickups channel snappy clean sounds with ease, while the guitar particularly excels at high gain, overdriven crunch. This Burny weighs 9lbs 15oz and has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, accurate intonation, and fast action.
The one-piece maple neck has a slender C shaped profile with good shoulder and rolled fretboard edges, measuring .805” deep at the 1st fret and .920” at the 12th. The thick slab rosewood fretboard features split trapezoid inlay and stock medium jumbo fretwire. The frets retain their full factory height, with plenty of meat, well-rounded crowns, and virtually no wear, playing cleanly in all registers with a straight neck and ideally adjusted truss rod. The fretboard has a 12” radius, the scale length is 24 3/4“, and the locking nut measures 1 5/8“ in width. The headstock features a locking nut and chrome Gotoh tuners which turn smoothly and function as intended.
On the body, the electronics include a three-way pickup selector toggle and Master Volume and Tone knobs governing the pair of Gotoh humbuckers. The chrome hardware shows light patina, and the large red pearloid pickguard compliments the gloss Candy Apple Red finish. Cosmetic wear is limited to finish chipping mostly relegated to the lower bout body edge, with a few light scattered scratches and marks at the top and back. The neck profile sports a satin finish with some minor marks that are not distracting to the palm while fretting.
A gigbag is included.
