In for a full set-up and fret dress, this very attractive 1964 Burns is in super condition. The body of this guitar was found under the bench of Eddie Cross who was the engraver Burns used to make all their scratchplates, headstock logos in the 1960s. It was ‘fully loaded’ but had not yet been painted.
The neck pocket ahd the letters SG and was taken to suggest Burns had intended this guitar to be painted Surf Green. Therefore the body was finished in this beautiful colour.
The unfretted neck (made by ‘Phil’ see below) was also found under the bench and was thought to have been a pattern for fretting operations. The neck is actually intended for a Split Sonic (as the eagle-eyed will have noticed from the headstock design). The two were mated together to form the guitar you see before you.
