  • My next guitar--most of you will hate it

    I've decided that I cannot live the rest of my guitar playing life without owning a Burns Hank Marvin. They make a wide range of these, but the model I'm looking at is $1300. It's made in China but assembled in England, whatever that means. I have no idea. I just want one.

      Hmm... I'm not usually a fan of Greenburst but in this case it really works.  I would definitely rock it to the best of my limited abilities.

    I love 'em. Even the Bison model. As for the ones in the OP, I think they are hotness. My favorite i the white with the tort pickguard(s).

     

    Back in the 80s I had a chance to buy a greenburst Burns 12 stringer for $250. Wish I could have snagged it.

    I don't want to sell my music. I'd like to give it away because where I got it, you didn't have to pay for it.

      "Assembled in UK"

       

      I'll bet they ship them from China with the necks detached.

      They are great looking guitars but $1300 for a Chinese guitar seems too much.

        Have always been intrigued by those....but have to agree with Virgman.

      Interesting. Your collection is too pretty, so the obvious next move is to add some ugly diversity.

      I don't know, but those do look like fun!

        Always liked the look of those. Last time I had my hands on one (late 90s I think) I was surprised how much that particular one sounded like a strat. Suppose I shouldn't have been, given that Hank Marvin played one, but still

        I used to have a green Marquee.  I sold it because it was very heavy

        and also I did not like the bridge.

      Really like the white.

        That is a kickass guitar...like a strat that's actually interesting. I own a UK-made Steer & if its anywhere near as good, you'll be very happy.

        I do agree with the above sentiments, however-Burns should be ashamed for charging $1300 for a Chinese-made guitar...
