Burns Custom Elite Series Sonic Deluxe. NAMM prototype. Perhaps the only one of its kind.

guitarz.blogspot.com:










This Burns Sonic Deluxe may be the only one to have come with three tri-sonic pickups, and it has a serial number 0001. Another first? The only one?

All in all this is a great take on the tele design, has the Rez-O-Tube bridge, and though I'd normally loathe a 3 + 3 headstock on a tele design this one gets a pass since its equipped with a Burns scroll headstock. Very sweet.

  1. it is not the only one. I have serial #0000 in black, 3 pickups - all the same details. yes, they will most likely not make this guitar. It is a beauty, plays like a dream and has those great burns (brian may) pickups. Also my wiring design with the pp pot.

    I do not need this very special guitar and will trade for a fairly common new or used Epiphone 50th Anniversary Sorrento with the mini hums, in Olive Sunburst (so ugly it is cool) or natural.

    I also have, not for sale or trade, the Apache proto serial #000 - this is a fantastic guitar. It may become my main strat.

    I have these guitars from a very reputable person, they were displayed the the NAMM show and do have a lot of very nice details that will not appear in production models.
