Werner Fritzschings Burst

Only 3 pics of Werner Fritzschings' LP came turned out fine (all the other pics were blurry due to slow shutter speed on the camera). These were taken last night at the Cactus show in PA.

Re: Werner Fritzschings Burst

Those are definitely not Burst inlays. They appear to be similar to 1993-2002 Historic inlays. The neck binding is very thick. The tuners and headstock looks older than the rest of the guitar. Anybody know what this is?

Re: Werner Fritzschings Burst

Tight flame, truss cover close to nut, dark amber knobs... looks very much like the 93-94 historics.

(Although, the pu doesnt look like its close to the bridge like the early 90s)

Re: Werner Fritzschings Burst

That looks like a 1992-1993 Classic.

Re: Werner Fritzschings Burst

-1 on the Classic theory.

Classics have never had inlays with a crackled pattern like those in the photos above. 90-92 Classic inlays pretty much look like the current Historic inlays except their color is gray-green, and the patterns are less swirly and more rippled in appearance. Here's a '91 Classic.

Re: Werner Fritzschings Burst

Is it just the lighting or are those tuners looking like they're in the pre-shrunken stage?

Surprised to see him there- I think he had some history with Cactus though.

Re: Werner Fritzschings Burst

Even the truss rod cover seems too wide at the upper bout?

Re: Werner Fritzschings Burst

It is not an early '90s LP classic or pre-historic reissue. The tell tale is the contour of the horn, which doesn't have the typical "bump" which was corrected with the introduction of the historic line.

BTW, who is this guy?
