The BSR "B" replaced the "Burner" series Basses in 1999. Hardware and Electronics are the same as in the Burner Series. The Standard and Deluxe models have a 3-pc Laminated Hard Rock Maple Neck. The Custom Models have a 5-pc Laminated Hard Rock Maple/Walnut Neck. What distinguishes the BSR "B" from the Burner Model is the streamlined BSR Body and Headstock shape. This Body and Headstock have become extremely popular with our "J" Models as well as our other USA Handmade Bolt-on and Neck-Thru Basses.
