Burns Marquee Club Series - Red Burst

Description

Beautiful Burns Marquee in Rare Red Burst Colour. Impossible to find this colour anywhere anymore.

It feels similar to a strat. Sounds really nice. Its a stunning guitar to look at, and feels really solid. Its a high quality instrument. Cool coil tap feature also.

Its basically new as it hasnt been played for more than 20 mins or set up in any way. Plastic wrap still on the scratch plates and back plate as pictured. (*Very faint mark on the back which I stupidly did during unboxing, but barely noticable. I have reflected this fairly in the price though*)

Very unusual and cool headstock. A Burns trademark, and the finish is lovely.

This was bought from Andertons in the UK for €465. The shipping and import tax was a further €105.

Burns London, the historic UK guitar brand, offers quirky '60s-inspired instruments that really stand out from the crowd! Their Marquee model just oozes with retro charm, but has the reliable and reassuring build quality you'd expect from a modern-day guitar. It's the perfect example of old meets new!

Despite its radical looks, the Burns Marquee's core construction and features are very much in line with that of a standard S-style guitar — so you'll feel right at home. Bright, vintage tones resonate beautifully from this instrument, courtesy of a trio of Burns' proprietary 'Rez-O-Matik' pickups, while the gorgeous knife-edge tremolo makes it a joy to embellish chords or lead lines with smooth vibrato whenever inspiration strikes!
Key Features

Okoume Body — A popular timber often likened to Mahogany for its warm and sustain-rich sound, giving the Marquee fantastic sonic depth.
Maple Neck — A high-quality wood that's strong and bright in tone.
Bolt-On Construction — Gives the instrument a "snappy" sound and response, so you’ll always feel musically-connected when you strum a chord or pick a note!
25.5" Scale Length — Popular scale synonymous with bolt-on guitars. Gives the Marquee optimal tension, so you can dig in but still bend the strings with plenty of expression.
Scroll Headstock — There's nothing quite like it! Only this kind of headstock design would have been conceived in the '60s, and we love it!
Alnico Rez-O-Matik Pickups — These vibrant single-coils are recreations of Burns' original 1960s pickups; Alnico 5 units wound on fibre bobbins. They were initially created to suit the needs of The Shadows' legendary guitarist Hank B. Marvin, and these present-day versions were reverse-engineered from an original 1964 set of Burns Rez-O-Matiks, so you know they're authentic!
Push/Pull Function — Pull the second tone control up to engage the neck pickup with any position on the 5-way pickup selector switch. This means that you can get a T-style tone if you select the bridge pickup position with the push/pull activated, or you can even use all 3 pickups together in switch position 4. This gives you a total of 7 different sounds!
Burns Knife-Edge Tremolo — Famously-smooth bar action lets you tastefully add vibrato to a ringing chord or note, with a positive return to pitch. The full-sized aluminium sustain block really emphasises that iconic Burns sound too!
