Burny HR-195 HIDE - signature guitar of HIDE from X Japan

It seems unusual to see the Burny name on an original design guitar such as this. It's a brandname commonly associated with high-end Gibson copies produced by Fernandes. It seems that this Burny HR-195 HIDE is a signature model of the late Hideto Matsumoto, better known as HIDE (or even hide for his solo projects), guitarist of Japanese heavy metal band X Japan.

Anyway, what we have here is a guitar with mahogany body and neck (glued in), ebony fretboard, chrome hardware, two Schaller machineheads and Cyber Future Sonic Scanner pickups with the Hide logo, and Schaller machineheads.

It's currently for sale on eBay UK with a Buy It Now price of £695. The seller has done his homework and this would seem to be the going rate for these guitars.
