    My place.
    Look at this limited edition Buren Of London I want. Great guitar. Expensive. Only 50 of them made. I love the trem system. Everything is pleasing to me. What do you think of the guitar would you rock it?

    The trem does look interesting. I’d plug it in.

    I don't like the gold, but I love quirky guitars. I'd turn it up to 11 and give it a go.

    I think it's a great looking guitar but I strongly suspect that there are more than 50. That advert has been around since the 2010 brochure and the guitar is still available. I have seen a few for sale so probably more than 50 about they do the Noiseless in other colours which might be more to some people's taste

    I think it's incredibly ugly. Wasn't the whole point of those Burns/Baldwin guitars that they were cheap Strat copies available in the UK at a time when US guitars weren't available? Now that the real thing is available for a lot less money, what's the point?

    Absolutely not Jim Burn's guitars were never strat copies he was making guitars he designed with his own innovations.

    The all gold is a little over the top; I'd go for the cherryburst with black scratchplates personally.

    I've had a couple of Burns Marvins (more or less the same guitar) but although I loved the looks and the sounds, for some reason I never quite bonded with them. Bit like Les Pauls in that respect.

    It's nice to see that Burns are still making the ugliest guitars ever seen. :D

    Are you sure I know that's what the advert said in 2010 but they are still advertising them for sale and (in the hope of not attracting sarcasm from two well known British members of this forum) I cannot believe that they have not sold 50 since 2010.

    Never understood the thought behind the bridge design. Is it really necessary to have that much metal on a guitar? Is that bridge really that much superior compared to a traditional strat bridge?

    I find it hard to believe that they'd ever sell 50. However, if they advertise only fifty made, I'd expect that to be the truth I have no reason to think that they are dishonest.

    That is partly why the Shadows switched at one point. Bruce Welch was getting tuning inconsistencies and couldn't solve even by trying other strats although Hank was happy with his but was getting more interested in the performance of the vibrato the lock vibrato on the Marvin solved the problem along with other design features (this was after 30 plus prototypes had been built and tested) obviously the sound was equally important. As an aside the story from people involved at the time was that Fender were either unable or unwilling to solve Bruce's problems.

    Buy the Burns Of London book. It is full of Info on the brand. Vintage and now. Burns is great guitars. And it was too expensive for the gold version. They may have some left. Or the info is still up and archived.
