Burny/Fernandes Guitars:
Fernandes is the parent company that made most of the company's Fender replica guitars under its own Fernandes name.
Burny is the brand name or division that focused on the making of Gibson replica guitars. Fernandes/Burny first started
cloning Fender and Gibson guitars in the 1970s and continued thorugh the mid-1980’s, up until Fender and Gibson
threatened to sue them for copyright/trademark infringement. At that point, Burny/Fernandes changed their truss rod
cover shape and other small details to appease both Fender and Gibson. For their Fender copies, they were forced
to change their headstock shape completely.
The rare old Fender and Gibson 'lawsuit' replicas that can be found are extremely accurate in their attention to detail that
the original Fender and Gibsons had. The guitars were called the “Revival” series, as they were essentially reviving the old
classic Fenders and Gibsons. The headstock logos were dead ringers from 15 feet away. On the Revival Stratocaster,
the saddles were stamped like Fenders, except bore the F.S.R.G. stamp (Fernandes Sound and Research Group) instead
of the FENDER stamp. Other details were uncanny, too, in their replication of the Fender Strat. The Tele was just as
collectible. Prices even in Japan are triple what they were 5 years ago due to collector interest not only from abroad,
but also from within Japan.
Currently, Burny/Fernandes is still making high-end Gibson and Fender replica guitars in Japan, but has also opened up a

Japanese just have higher standards of work and materials while the same standards are not always upheld elsewhere, even

How can you tell the difference between a modern Japanese-made Burny and a Chinese-made or Korean-made Burny?
You really need to trust a seller and ask lots of questions about the craftsmanship (ask to see a photo of the neck pickup
well and also ask what the model number of the guitar is).. all Burny/Fernandes guitars have model numbers, but sellers
often intentionally or unknowingly misrepresent the model numbers to get higher prices. Most guitars look good from the
outside.. have a look under the hood before you buy one. I am still gathering information about how to determine
Japanese-made vs. Chinese-made & Korean-made and will update my site as soon as more accurate information is located.
