Sorry, but the Shadows were never cool.
The scourge of white males the world over...
Exactly, HM looks like a middle school science teacher who plays in a hobby band on the weekend.
I mean this....
It should just die....
First act has more class than this....
Its just gross.
Sure could have fooled me....
Its like a strat and a PT Cruiser made love and the Burns came out of wetlock after to many drinks during pregnancy.
Burbs is a great guitar brand look at this guitar on Ebay I love. And for the record Burns took a little inspiration from the Stratocaster and did their own cool vibe with it.
But I will admit the acoustic electric is ugly. But I still love the ugly guitar.
I think that the word you are looking for is "wedlock". Though wetlock does sound far more interesting!
By the way, congratulations on using the term "made love" instead of typing the words you were thinking......
I thought they looked kind of wooden
the Shads were never cool.
Why it's not just a Fender copy
Distinctive design ideas were more than matched by accompanying hardware and circuitry and although some such aspects bordered on gimmickry, others offered genuine innovation, and have become accepted concepts, later to be claimed as firsts by other, more illustrious conveniently forgetful makers. Such Burns-originated features include: the heel-less, glued-in neck; 24-fret fingerboard, knife-edge bearing vibrato unit; active electronics and stacked-coil pickups.
Not to mention the split sound concept which I have seen to a lesser degree on some Yamahas but nowhere else that I know of.
However I am fairly sure I am
I’ve looked on their site & I can’t seem to locate the weight of this... guitar? It looks to be quite heavy with that bridge, headstock etc.... but , the larger headstock may be needed for balance?
The Shads were cool ...once ,before the word was used .We used to avidly copy them on our Hofners and far worse. We lusted after red strats and the girls lusted after a rather ... erm ..... prim and self regarding Cliff Richard .I have played both the original Burns and the copies and found them fuggin awful lumps of heavy old tree wood with a neck like a concrete giraffe...sorry.
My Bison is definitely heavier than my USA strat but I wouldn't have said it's heavier by much. I have no means of weighing it. The Ultrasound has a basswood body not sure whether that's a particularly heavy wood or not. I love the necks on all my Burns and don't find any of them too heavy to play on the strap but I don't gig any more so I don't have to stand for a long time with them. You must have a dealer near you where you could try one.
Limited edition Burns Of London.
Sorry, but it can stay limited as far as I'm concerned.. its bloody awful.. horrible.. I can't bare looking at it..
you tried your best, I think once you play and hear a Burns your attitude towards them changes. Now I must say the Gold one does nothing for me I'd prefer to have one of their standard models they look nicer. Anyways I still got to get those pics of my buddy's Burns for you so you can feature it on your webpage we think its a '59 he also bought a Burns Flyte not to long ago that one would send these guys into meltdown for sure
I love all Burns of guitars. Even the cheap ones for sale used in Guitar Center used department sounds and plays like butter. You guys must have never played one. They are some of my favorite S style guitars.
The Shadows most definitely were cool in the early days. The history of rock would be very different if it weren't for their influence.
When viewed alongside to Freddie and the Dreamers, Shadows were super cool.
Dunno how well this humour travels but:
No it wouldn't. "The history of rock" had mainly been written by 1959 - the Shadows & their singer (the awful English equivalent of Pat Boone) were simply copyists.
