1960s Baldwin/Burns GB 65. Beautiful precursor to the Virginian

My main electric guitar is a Burns Steer so this beauty caught my eye. This Baldwin/Burns GB 65 is from the mid 1960s and apparently predates the Virginian. I love the lines on this semi-hollow single cutaway guitar. Two Rez-O-Matic single coils and a three way switch would likely be enough for my tonal needs at least half of the time. Note the simple yet elegant tailpiece as well, a good example of less is more.

Currently listed on eBay at $919 US
