Burns guitar and bass doubleneck, one-off possibly employee-made
Here's another bizarre doubleneck instrument, this time it's a Burns guitar/bass combination. Although it has genuine 1960s Burns parts, we do not know for sure its back-story. The seller believes that it was possibly made by an employee of Burns or else was a prototype or one-off tradeshow model, but freely admits that he is unable to offer any proof to these theories.

Currently listed on eBay UK with a starting bid of £1,050.

  1. I think the seller is right in saying that it's definitely a Burns of some sort-the pickguard appears to be made out of the same thick brittle plastic as on my 1964 Burns Shortscale Jazz and my 1966 Baldwin prototype guitar. It's a very unique type of plastic which I doubt anyone outside of the Burns factory would have had access to!
