This is a mid-60s Burns Baldwin hollow body 12 String Electric Guitar, in great shape and full working order. If you want jangle then look no further!
This guitar plays great and sounds terrific – it also happens to look incredibly beautiful and striking. You will wait a long time to see another one of these for sale.
It has a maple body and neck and rosewood fingerboard. It’s in great condition as seen in the photographs – the lacquer has some cracks in it but these are just superficial aging to the finish and don’t affect the wood or the tone or stability of the instrument. It has picked up a ding on the headstock at some point along the way. Apart from that there is nothing to report!
I bought this guitar about ten years ago from a renowned vintage guitar shop in London. It’s only been used sparingly in that time and not gigged. Selling because I’ve bought a Rickenbacker and can’t justify having both!
