Thanks for the pointer to Bjarne in Denmark.
Going to cost £430 but that obviously includes shipping (£90).
Before I dive in , for those that have one , you seem happy with it ??..and ok for some Shads tones ?...
Im not gonna be able to try one out so grateful for any comments.
Thanks.

Hi
Just a couple of pointers for your dealer to check out. Although I would guess they would do anyway prior to despatch.
Mine had some slightly rough and sharp fret edges (no major problem and easy enough
to clean up) Trem Arm screw in thread not the best but again easy to remedy if a bit of wobble.
Yes excellent pickups as standard for a range of Shadows numbers mainly on Neck and Bridge as selected.
Everything else fine and I think you can indeed buy with confidence!!!

Now we're out of the EU and buying from abroad bear in mind the import duty on the purchase price plus VAT on the purchase price and shipping costs. There could also be an agents fee to pay to get the goods through customs. Best to check to avoid unexpected costs.

If it's coming from Spens Guitars in Denmark, I'd be pretty confident that it would come all set up and ready to go. They have a pretty solid reputation where all things Burns are concerned. Lots of spare parts too :) .

Spens also cater very well for LEFT HANDED models

Yes unfortunately very few models left in the U.K. and no models disclosed. Yes if importing there will be additional charges so best double check on total cost
