Since we are Burns Guitars fans, check out this clip of The Honeycombs

Feast your eyes on these guitars by Burns London Ltd, as used by The Honeycombs performing their No.1 Joe Meek-produced hit single "Have I The Right" from July 1964 (when I was only 6 months old). Originally The Sheratons, the band was re-named "The Honeycombs" by Pye Records chairman Louis Benjamin making a sly reference to drummer Honey Lantree's job as an assistant in a hair salon.

Thanks to Jeremiah for recommending this clip (pun not intended).

  1. Any interest in a Burns Bison reissue with SN 00000, a prototype of the reissue made possibly for NAMM. Mint condition, with original hard shell case... I'm not sure what to price it at. -Dustin
