1965 Burns Baldwin GB65
New Kings Road Guitars, Europe's Premier Vintage Guitar Emporium are delighted to be able to offer for sale this GB 65, One of the rarest and most unusual Burns guitars, This model was in production for just over a year from 1965-66 and was one of the first instruments discontinued by Baldwin after they fully took over the company's operation. This is a flat-topped fully hollow body guitar with two pickups, eccentrically shaped sound holes and a long 25 1/2" scale neck. The heavily braced cutaway mahogany body was called the "Controlled Resonance" design by the company, and the concept was continued with the somewhat better known "Virginian" guitar with a round sound hole introduced later in the year. Jim Burns himself was extremely proud of this creation, which was unlike most guitars in existence in 1965. The guitar handles very well and the sound is quite bright and clear for a full-size hollow instrument. Comes with the original case.
