Guitar really good ... but

Nicolas962, 11.03.2017
There is a "but" because the guitar came with pickguard protection plastics already removed and especially worn frets in some places!
In short a guitar visibly already used !!!
Only I did not order a b-stock, but a new guitar!

As for the guitar itself, I am satisfied with the overall quality of the instrument.

Note that several frets are not well adjusted (plated) to the key (gap sometimes important).
The saddle is not top (we would have suspected), I changed it.
The strings were very close to the first fret in its initial setting ... the E6 AD strings were a bit too much for my taste, but not only because of the saddle let's say rather than the guitar is to adjust globally.
But hey, the finishes are honorable for a guitar of this price and the sound is really nice.
It's a strat-like with a little more "body" in the sound delivered by the mini tri-sonics (according to my ear).

Conclusion: you will understand that the "average rating" of 2 stars is due to the impression of having bought a guitar that I thought was new and to have received a guitar with obvious traces of use (some frets are well flat anyway, I'm disgusted).

In short, good value for money.
With a setting see a re-frettage at the luthier, you have the history and sound of the sixties hands for 350 balls!

love at first sight

14.02.2017
For a long time I had discovered the instruments of Burns London for me, but never had the small money to give me one too. Recently, however, the desire was awakened to finally want to call a Strat my own, so I ordered the Burns King Cobra in the beautiful Honeyburst paint.

The guitar is excellently processed for the price, the frets are used cleanly, no corners or edges. She also came very well. Even dry it plays wonderfully, the neck is not a half baseball bat, but pleasantly slender, the tremolo has the right intensity. It is an absolute eyecatcher because of the simply stunning paint finish and the three-part dashboard (by the way, not pure white, but with a light Grünstich, similar to some Fender models in Tobacco Sunburst). Get used to it: You will be addressed to the guitar at every concert.

Enhanced, the King Cobra unfolds its wonderful sound. It reminds of a Strat, but it has its own soft touch, due to the Tri-Sonic pickups. Especially on Neck-, Neck- and Medium-Pickup, she is sober and suitable for all musical styles from Blues to Rock and Alternative; If it is harder, it would probably not be a strat anyway. Their strength lies clearly in the cleaner area.

Two small flaws brings the King Cobra then with:
- at least in my model, the volume control is somewhat difficult. If you work with it more often, you have to re-oil. For me it is not a problem, and I guess because of the noise when turning almost, that it is only a residual adhesive film, which makes the regulator somewhat stubborn.
- the Burns lettering is painted on the lower percussion board, no sticker. Personally, I do not like it very much, but I can also argue about it.

I am definitely excited by the Burns King Cobra. In its price class, it can easily compete with every squier and also with just about any more expensive Mexico or Japan strat. I would recommend a full purchase recommendation if I did not have the need to keep it as an insider tip for me.
